"Goon squad" inquiry

For once I'll agree with NZFirst in saying "about time". The allegations against the Corrections department demand an answer, and it's outrageous that it's taken this long for the government to launch a proper inquiry. It is simply intolerable that Corrections department staff may have abused inmates, and I would expect prosecutions as well as dismissals if the allegations are substantiated.
