A mentally ill inmate was the victim of a violent attack by a the Ottawa Carleton Detention Centre, according to the Ontario’s ombudsman, who is warning that the province’s jail guards are brutalizing inmates and then covering up the abuse.
In a report released today, Andre Marin slams what he calls the “code of silence” around the problem.
His report says some correctional staff have committed “brazen acts of violence.”
