    It would mean treating prisoners like people.

    Strength and dignity are her clothing, she rejoices at the days to come; She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the law of kindness is on her tongue.

        firist. I'm looking for some photos of prison sexual assualt, as you are right. The original article and even my post do not come close to capturing the brutality of the reality.

        I read someplace that in some of these long-term facilities, on a new prisoner's second week, unless they are under a gang' protection they often get their front teeth knocked out so they can perform oral sex on the other prisoners without their teeth causing discomfort.

        And, there is not a lot they can do about it. For some of these poor folks, apparently, getting exposed to HIV is only a matter of time.

        But, as a Doctor, you already know this and have probably seen this cases.

        Your title is obviously better, but do you think anyone might complain that I was being sensationalistic?

        Let me think for a moment. I just started a new med which I think is interfering with my concentration.

        What I'm trying to see if is "condones" escalates beyond "defiantly refuses to comply with" Would I be attributing intent on his part that is impossible for me to know?

        I know that may seem to be a somewhat trivial quibble, but I try to maintain a fairly rigorous defined set of rules for my 15 or so different "sub-personalities" I write under here. Sometimes it clear from the masthead, such as Hyrdrant is alwasy 100% snark. SciTech is sobre and credible.

        Now For Something Completely Different is well different and evolving but sort of Monty Python like , but also could be uplifting, mildly amusing.

        I need to better distinguish pure reporting and editorial writing which I've confused here.

        Part of what amusing me about this poll is I'm sort of pretending to be a pure unbiased reporter but then giving choices that have strings of four or give blistering adjectives as if I am a stark raving political lunatic.

        If the Poll response box didn't have a limit the rest of that choice was an embarrassment to Texas, the people of American, Christianity, and God. which you have to admit is pretty funny (with apologies to the cable guy.)

        So, I admit to worry about this subtle of a nuance in the title after appearing to go off the rails to the max in the polls is an affect incongruity that represents a flaw in my sub-personality management system.

        This is feedback to me that I may need to stop this new med as I've had a migraine now for a week and a half since I started this new med, and really bad acid indigestion and heartburn.

        Thanks, let me think, I also have to call the moving company and lock in our arrangements to move to Florida or my S.O. is going to kick me out.
