Girls as young as 13 say they were shackled for weeks at a time in Mississippi. A Texas teen was allegedly offered birthday cake in exchange for sex. A guard drove his knee into the neck of a frail suicidal Ohio boy after the youth was wrestled to the ground and held down by other guards who stripped him and covered his face with a smock, a state report said. More than two dozen girls at an Indiana lock-up describe "networking" -- their term for sneaking into each other's cells to have sex, with no interference from guards.

what is good about a government that has no control over these things, isn't that what governments are supposed to do? I get the fact that its a prison and such and such is expected but these are kids. why should their lives be ruined for doing something stupid as a kid.
