The fact that we have 10, 11 & 12 year old children in the criminal justice system is already a tragedy. As a society, we have failed these children!!!

UPDATE;
Youth detention royal commission;

The $54 million inquiry on the Don Dale Youth Detention Centre, investigated conditions in the NT's detention centres.

The royal commission's findings reaffirmed much of the evidence heard during the course of the inquiry, including that the NT's youth detention centres were not fit for accommodating - "let alone rehabilitating" - children and young people.

Key points:
The investigation found "shocking and systemic failures occurred over many years and were known and ignored at the highest levels"

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said the Government "will now carefully consider those findings directed to the Commonwealth"

Chief Minister Michael Gunner apologised for the failings of successive NT governments

Some of the key recommendations from the inquiry include:

Only allowing children aged under 14 to be detained for serious crimes

Banning the use of tear gas and force or restraint being used to discipline children

Introducing body-worn video cameras in youth detention centres

Prohibiting extendable periods in isolation over 24 hours, or its use as a punishment

Requiring youth justice officers to have demonstrated experience in working with youth

Developing a 10-year generational strategy to address child protection and prevention of harm to children

Increasing engagement with and involvement of Aboriginal Organisations in child protection, youth justice and detention
