Original post found at: https://thejusticemap.substack.com/p/spit-hoods-still-used-in-australian

Fucked up:

  • Spit hoods are being used on asylum seekers imprisoned in Australian detention centres
  • The Northern Territory is still using them on adolescents in juvenile detention despite the 2016 Don Dale scandal
  • Queensland and the ACT also make them available in their detention centres
  • Only South Australia has banned their use
  • The Federal Government is refusing to keep statistics on their use
