    Having so many in prison is coarsening the culture.  Prison mentality is spilling over into our culture.

      Even here on DKos we have commenters desiring to throw miscreants in prison, and have them anally raped by giant Black guys, or tatooed White gangs.

      In these overcrowded prisons we breed a culture of revenge. We do not expect rehabilitation, we encourage subjugation and humiliation. For profit!

      And so we focus on punishment, on cruelty, on righteousness, rather than on healing.
