A federal commission on prison rape has concluded that the risk of being attacked depends greatly on the type of prisoner, and where the inmate is locked up. More than 60,000 inmates are sexually abused every year, according to a report being made public Tuesday by the National Prison Rape Elimination Commission.

What is sad is that this is a phenomenon that is truly America.
I agree with posters that mention this is usually the minimal offender being abused by cruel and abusive criminals.
This has a lot to do with the fact that the US loves to put people in prison. Non-violent crimes need to be dealt with differently in this nation, as they are in most of the civilized world.
This would all improve tomorrow with decriminalization of a few select substances, in my opinion.
