Dorchester Pen taken to task over inmate’s 2015 death

The correctional investigator has slammed the Dorchester Pen over the 2015 death of an inmate. Ivan Zinger’s report says “unnecessary and inappropriate physical and chemical force” was used against Matthew Hines.  He died shortly after being beaten and pepper sprayed by guards after he wouldn’t go back in his cell.  The Correctional Service of Canada has accepted recommendations in the report.
