The explicit images show the women touching and undressing some of the inmates, and have been circulating on social media.

Sisanda, 702 caller

That type of entertainment is inappropriate...if we are talking about restorative justice, people need to be treated as humanly as possible but bringing strippers on a family day is totally inappropriate.
