  •  Our violent culture (6+ / 0-)

    Indeed, the overall culture of violence in society fosters not only the actions of those who sexually assault prisoners (many of the very people assigned to "protect" inmates)but it also accepts it. It's pretty obvious, as someone else has said, in society's view, prisoners "deserve it." Interesting. You read about innocent people who are wrongfully convicted. It could happen to anyone in society, you, me. Then is prison rape still okay? Does the innocent person "deserve" to be fair game for abuse?
