  •  Of course there are gangs in women's prisons. (2+ / 0-)

    In most prisons, they are not as dominant as in men's prisons.  But that varies a lot depending on geographic location and the specific sort of prison.

    There is far less violence than in men's prisons.  

    despite an extensive search of federal prison records and discussions with
    current and retired federal prison staff who work or have worked in female
    prisons, we are unable to find any record of a female inmate ever having committed a homicide while in custody

    It's dated, and it's only a review of Federal prisons.  Still, the point stands.  

    That doesn't make women's prisons "safe".  Sexual coercion and sexual assault by staff is very real risk for every woman behind bars in the US.

    Mr. Universe is a known degenerate Robotophile, and his sources include former Browncoat Traitors. What is their agenda in leaking top secret information about the Reavers and endangering us all?
