Shut The Place Down Today

Shocking footage has emerged over teen inmates being stripped naked, tear-gassed and held in solitary for days in the Northern Territory's youth detention system.

Triple M's Matty Johns called it a national disgrace, saying the detention centre should be shut down today. Watch the full video below.

PM Announces Royal Commission Into Northern Territory Child Abuse

MALCOLM TURNBULL has this morning announced a ROYAL COMMISSION in the Northern Territory's youth detention system after shocking footage emerged over teen inmates being stripped naked, tear-gassed and held in solitary for days.

ABC's Four Corners program on Monday night showed footage of teens in 2014 at Don Dale Youth Detention Centre and again in 2015 in the old Berrimah adult prison that replaced Don Dale.

Watch the video below.

In one video, a 17-year-old is hooded, shackled to a "mechanical device" chair and left alone for two hours.

"They're being shackled to chairs a la Guantanamo Bay," barrister John Lawrence told the ABC.

In another, one of the guards is heard saying "I'll pulverise the f***er" as a young man in isolation was banging at windows.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull announced the royal commission would be held as soon as possible after discussions with NT Chief Minister Adam Giles.

"We will get to the bottom of this swiftly and we will identify the lessons that need to be learned," Mr Turnbull told ABC radio.

Mr Giles on Monday night flagged the NT would set up a royal commission.

He said while guards at detention centres had certain powers to do a difficult job, those powers had limits.

"The Northern Territory government does not resile from its tough approach to those who don't want to respect others people's property or safety," He said in a statement.

"But questions were raised about what is going on in our juvenile detention system that date back to 2010."

Lawyers and human rights activists have called for the facility to be shut down for good and called on the federal government to intervene.

Mr Giles has also asked the NT Police Commissioner to consider if the incidents highlighted by Four Corners were used in accordance with the powers afforded to custodial officers, and to prosecute them if necessary.

Australian's human rights chief Gillian Triggs said a government-based independent commission was needed into what happened at the centre.

"We need a proper inquiry and the facts need to be determined and then we can determine whether people should be charged," she told ABC TV's Q&A program.

Since 2014 the government has extended staff training from four days to eight weeks.

Mr Giles said he had full confidence in the majority of custodial officers working in the NT's institutions.

Anthony Mundine has confirmed a fight with rival Danny Green is being organised.

'Choc' Mundine admitted the two met recently but it was a little anxious.  

"I’m looking forward to butchering his (Green’s) face and putting this to bed," exclaimed Anthony Mundine, on the Triple M Grill Team.

This is when Matty Johns landed the former rugby league star a big right hook, asking Mundine to finally concede that he was the better five-eighth.   

"Talk about putting things to bed, can we finally concede that in 1999 I deserved that Australian number six jersey"," joked Matty Johns.

Mundine replied: "Matty, you know and I know who was the man when I was around."

Johns then said: "Nah I appreciate that Choc, we’ll let bygones be bygones". Listen to the audio below from the 3.50-minute mark.

Matty Johns Responds To Sonia Kruger's Muslim Ban

Yesterday on Channel 9's Today Extra, Sonia Kruger caused outrage when she called for a temporary ban on Muslim immigration.

The Triple M Grill Team's Matty Johns spoke this morning about Sonia Kruger's controversial comments. Watch the video below.

VIDEO: Sonia Kruger Calls For Muslim Ban

Video: Channel Nine

Matty Johns Written Transcript

"It’s a free democratic country which allows freedom of speech and ideas, and it doesn’t mean people need to agree with those words or ideas, but it is a persons right."

He supported Sonia's right to have her opinion, but he doesn't agree with it.

"There are individuals in this city, and across Australia, who are attempting and succeeding in radicalising young Muslims by peddling the narrative that 'you don’t belong in this country. You are not Australian. You’ll never be accepted. The West has no time for you. We’re at war with the west. They want to crush your religion'." said Matty Johns on The Triple M Grill Team.

"These really destructive individuals who are radicalising these young Australians would have rejoiced yesterday because what it does is it feeds their narrative - 'See, look, I told you. Here's the evidence right here'."

Matty stressed that Sonia's comments were "saying to a young Sydney boy who’s parents came here from Afghanistan after the Soviet invasion, it’s saying, 'you might be born here mate, but you’re not one of us'."

"It’s saying to all the practising Muslims, you’re Australian, but we don’t really want you here."

Matty called for unity and understanding.

"In 2016, if you’re given an Australian passport, I trust the procedure enough to throw my arms open and say 'welcome to Australia'. I don’t care if you’re Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim, Morman, Scientologist, or a David Icke conspiracy theorist."

Matty believes that the only way to fight terrorism is to "defeat the narrative, and what Sonia said yesterday, I defend her right to say that, but for me it feeds the narrative."
