WA Corrective Services Commissioner James McMahon announces a shift in policy whereby spit hoods are banned for juvenile offenders, officers instead required to don surgical masks and eye shields:

Yes, we make no bones about the fact that the onus will now be on the staff rather than the young people.

Part of the problem here is that the onus is never on the little darlings. Just think of the entertainment value for kiddies who know in advance that a single spit will send officers scrambling for protection.
