The leader in the Observer today "Inquiry must root out prison racists", seems to see a target, take aim, and then fire in the opposite direction.
The sad death of Zahid Mubarek, murdered by his cell mate Robert Stewart a known racist has been gone over a number of times. First at the time of his killing, then at the trial of Stewart, convicted and given a life sentence.
But the really guilty ones are the prison officers. No they are not, the really guilty man is serving life.
And though the Observer would like to tar every prison officer with the same institutionally racist brush with which it tars the coppers it has no suggestions to make at all.
Root them out. The officers that is, not the racist murderers. Where do you send convicted racists murderers - prison. Where they will; no doubt meet racist murderers ofallraces.
Now what, segregated prisons?
