ENGLAND 1981, unemployment is on the rise and the first Brixton Riot is around three months away from exploding on the streets of South London. The SUS law is helping corrupt police officers to incarcerate innocent young black men as the police would turn up in the court and act as witnesses. The CPS was introduced in 1986 which put an end to this controversial procedure. But it wasn’t only ethnic minorities who were the victims of the UK penal system. Danny Arthur attacks a prison officer in the hope to get moved off the wing, he has just joined Ambrose Cook in his cell, a black inmate who is waiting for his parole in a couple of months.
