Rape is the most cowardly, vile, vicious display of lack of self control you can get. It doesn't matter who perpetrates it, rape is rape. If women
and children were getting raped everyday there would be outrage. Somehow men aren't considered humans and in prison it's even worse. Most people see
prisoners as sub-human, not realising these are you family, brothers, friends and people just like you. Yes, they committed crimes, sometime
horrendous crimes but that's why they are in PRISON.
If we keep allowing this too happen, we are no better than the criminals.
Mind you, I can't really be surprised since people don't even help others who are being attacked in the street, they just put there heads down and
walk on by.
Most prisoners have it in them to reform and come out better people with the right guidance and support that they never received when they we on the
outside. I'd rather my tax money goes towards reforming than raping.
A lot of the prison rapes are committed by the guards. I was watching a documentary, forget the name but it was disgusting. This is what we are
supporting. How can prisoners come out of prison with the confidence, drive and determination to stay on the straight and narrow if this is how they
are treated. If they don't see the good side of society then what's the point, why not just get the guillotines out and be done with it, waste of tax
money to feed them if they aren't going to learn there lessons.
It doesn't benefit anybody but the rapists, psychos and hardcore criminals. The most disgusting criminals are the ones doing the raping like the
murderers, child molesters, armed robbers etc. How is this even ''Don't commit the crime or get raped as a deterrent.'' The people getting raped are
mostly in there for minor crimes, people that aren't into dominating other people that don't want to physically hurt others (not saying they're
innocent but that's what prisons for...).
I don't think we need to try and make prisons a lovey dovey place. In fact I think they should militarise the prisons. Take out the sicko's that let
it happen or commit rapes themselves and send them to prison (the guards). Get some order back into the prison systems, make the prisoners work and
show them how they are doing a good thing. Give them confidence when they do good things so they can re-build themselves as better, more disciplined
human beings. This won't work on some prisoners and those, those can stay in prison with each other, out of the reach of any rape victims.
EDIT: Just to add. Anybody that says its okay to rape people is just a pathetic coward. Rape is never okay, I wouldn't stand by and just let it
happen on the streets and I dam well detest that it goes on in prisons. Anybody who says it's okay to rape other people in prisons is just an
accomplise to these crimes and should be ashamed. You people should think about why you want other humans to be raped and them ask yourself, ''Is
this justice? Is this what we as a society really want?'' End of the day, I stand for justice, fairness, equality in my society. And I thought that
is what the majority wanted. I don't stand for rape, murder and oppression. I don't care who commits and who's the victims. We should be fighting
this to stop it, at least for our own humanity and self worth.
How can people not feel guilty for allowing the to happen by not marching down to the politicians and demanding change? Allowing this is just as bad
as allowing big brother government and illegal wars.
