G4S Security Guards Labeled Shameful and Racist

Written on August 12, 2011

It now seems that Britain’s prisons watchdog, Inspectorate of Prisons, said that private security guards that are supplied by G4S to remove immigration detainees are unprofessional. The watchdog went on to say that these security guards are racist and derogatory.

These reports came to light after 104 guards from G4S were accompanied by inspectors from Inspectorate of Prisons. Apparently, the inspectors watched the guards remove about 35 detainees to Jamaica. During this removal, inspectors found that guards used extremely offensive racist language when dealing with the migrants.

Reports went on to show that handcuffs were used on detainees who were visibly distressed. Not only that, but these handcuffs were being used on people who showed no signs of being violent at all. Thus, the use of handcuffs should have been considered unjustified.

Nick Hardwick, who was the chief inspector on this operation, said that most guards worked sensitively, others had been unacceptable with the detainees. They showed a shamefully unprofessional performance. Some of the officers had raised tensions on the flight by using unnecessary force and restraints. Most, however, just continued to use highly offensive and sometimes racist language.

Right now the main concern is to inform the UK Border Agency that all detainees have to be treated with respect at all times. The kind of treatment that these detainees are receiving during flights is completely unacceptable.
