“The justice system doesn’t make sense sometimes.”
The corruption of prison guards and institutional racism within the criminal justice system is a problem in many parts of the world. In this episode of Informers, an ex-convict in the UK tells us about his experiences in prison – where he witnessed drones dropping off ten ounces of weed, widespread corruption, extreme violence and what he describes as “slave labour”.
Informers is a series where we hear the anonymised confessions and insights of people in positions of power on the inside of important institutions.
We contacted Her Majesty’s Prison Service for a response to the allegations. As of October 2020, VICE is yet to receive a reply – but will update here if we do.
