I was watching WITHOUT A TRACE on tv, and in this episode, there was an escape prisoner the FBI was looking for. The show slightly touched on the subject of rape in prison when they interviewed the PUNK (or bitch) of the escapee.
Anyway... this got me to thinking. Prison rape is not a secret. It happens EVERY DAY in all of the prisons around the country. Since it's not a secret, and it happens every day, and everyone knows it happens - and nothing is done to stop it or prevent it from happening.... I have to come to the conclusion that prison rape is tolerated by prison authorities, law enforcement authorities, and the government.
I think that's BS. Nobody should have to live that way, getting raped on a daily basis by sicko bastards. We consider ourselves a civilized society. We consider rape wrong - a crime - an assault.... we incarcerate people for committing rape because it is soooo wrong, so how can it be right if it happens in prison? As a civilized society, how can we allow this to happen on a daily basis to so many people?
Because they are behind prison walls, and are not a part of our free society, and we don't see them or hear them, we just pretend that prison rape does not happen?
If a tree falls in the forest, but nobody is around, does the falling tree make a sound?
DAMN RIGHT IT STILL MAKES A SOUND, AND DAMN RIGHT PRISON RAPE IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW EVEN AS YOU READ THIS POST FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR HOME OR OFFICE.
I brought this subject up to WIFEY and she says... SO WHAT. They are murderers and rapists in prison... they deserve to get raped.
I don't agree with her. Not everyone in prison is a murderer or rapist.
Let's say some college kid gets busted with a bunch of weed he bought for his own personal use, and is given the max sentence and is sent to prison because his family could not afford to get a good lawyer to defend him. Why does he deserve to be someone's bitch in prison and get raped on a daily basis? Who did he hurt with his crime of possession of a controlled substance? Wifey is wrong... he doesn't deserve to go through that terror every day.
They question I have is WHY??? WHY IS THIS ALLOWED TO HAPPEN?
We all know it happens - so why it it acceptable or accepted? Rape is rape. A crime is a crime. If a prisoner is forced to submit to sex acts in a prison, is it not rape? Is it not a crime?
rape1 ( P ) Pronunciation Key (rp) n. The crime of forcing another person to submit to sex acts, especially sexual intercourse. The act of seizing and carrying off by force; abduction. Abusive or improper treatment; violation: a rape of justice.
tr.v. raped, rap·ing, rapes
To force (another person) to submit to sex acts, especially sexual intercourse; commit rape on.
To seize and carry off by force.
To plunder or pillage.
There should a ZERO TOLERANCE policy for rape in prison. We have a zero tolerance policy for it in the free world. Any inmate that rapes another inmate should not be eligible for parole EVER and should be kept in solitary confinement or just put the raping inmate bastard to death and let's just be done with the sicko.
Do this and I bet prison rape will stop.
I came across this site with first hand accounts of being raped in prison. It's just wrong.
