Human Rights Watch, 2001 - Male rape - 378 pages
1 Review
With one out of every 140 people in the United States behind bars, the question of prisoner-on-prisoner sexual abuse can no longer be ignored. Male rape in prison can be vicious and brutal . Some of its victims contract HIV; all suffer psychological harm. Rape is not an inevitable consequence of prison life, but it is a predictable one if little is done to prevent and punish it. With this report, Human Right Watch calls upon federal and state authorities to address this serious nationwide problem.
