    prison guards and admin let it happen.

    i ran a homeless shelter for awhile and way to many of our clients/guests had done time and it was clear to me from their stories the threat of inmate-on-inmate violence is encouraged by the guards and used mostly as a control tool but also cheap entertainment.

    not that the laws aren't worth having but without prosecutions and lawsuits...  ALOT of prosecutions and lawsuits...
