Prison Rape would be relatively easy to eliminate if we redesigned our prisons from human warehouses into more expansive facilities that provide more education and recreation, in a relatively pleasant, but restricted and contained environment.
Following suit with this evangelical call to action I would also like to make a call to eliminate rape outside of prisons, and to elimnate theft and murder. I would like to eliminate hatred and mosquitos. A call to end something like rape in prison is not effective in combatting the problem. Tell me evangelists, where will and over-populated, under-funded and under-staffed prison get the money to make the reforms necessary to eliminate rape in prison?

I would like to see better educational programs in prisons. The only way that you can rehabilitate anyone is by and through knowledge. Programs for reading, writing, history, geography, mathematics, and the sciences should be mandatory in all prisons.
Ignorance is usually our collective downfall.

I couldn't agree more with you, however, that alone will not end rape in prison. Violent offenders are generally the rapists...

I'm curious as to your background but never mind. We have virtually eliminated double man cells in our new facility; the only ones who are double bunked are those that ask to have a "cellie" as states can afford them knew facilities are being built to replace the old ones you may be familiar with.
It may surprise you to know that in one 8 hour shift the inmates can choose approximately 6 hours of out of cell time. You vision of prison is a little off kilter.
Also any officer who relies on inmates to keep them safe under any circumstance is a fool. I cannot and do not expect any inmate to risk themselves to help or "save" me. Yes, it's happened but only an idiot would expect or rely on that. I've been called many things idiot isn't one of them
