    not one word to defend himself.

    •  Where Are The Arrest Records?? (0+ / 0-)

      The eyes and ears of any prison are supported by prison snitches. The ratio is usually one snitch for every 25 inmates. Each snitch is recruited from two of the major ethnic prison groups. Snitches are in constant contact with the guards. Even minor unacceptable behavior is immediately reported. Any inmate that attempts to rape another will be immediately reported and arrested. If found guilty he will be given 10 extra years to serve. That time will be spent in solitary confinement. If rape was widespread in prisons, where are the arrest records? If they existed they would be made public. Prison rape is a myth and a hoax.

        about the function of snitching and its place in prison culture.  I'd direct you to this, among other things, where prisoners who were sexually assaulted were branded as snitches for trying to report it.  Needless to say it did not go well for them.

        Also worth reading.

        As is this, which was discussed in a comment above.  I'm having a hard time finding anyone who takes Fleisher's book seriously.

        And a more complete rebuttal to Fleisher (pdf!)
