    I am not surprised at these statistics. After serving 3 tours in the Las Vegas County Jail, and 1tour in the City Jail and as an undergraduate – writing on Prisoners Rights, I believe your statistics to be honest and vital.
    Within County, on a Suicide Watch, I was placed nude in a 6 by 3 cell, with no pillows nor a blanket nor clothing nor a sheet. I slept on a slab of ice cold cement. In there for 24 hours per day and allowed to shower in a metal cage on 2 occasions. I had no books, pencils, paper and no one to talk to for eleven days.
    I endured this travesty of justice because of not attending two Court Ordered classes and for previously being in a Psych hospital.
    And, to think, I went to college to be lawyer for Children's Rights and Criminal Defense.
    The US, American, system of justice kills, maims and brutally treats the prisoner. I will never support American Justice – it is high time that amnesty and other organizations submit their Investigations to the Hague for International review, and for trial. Let the Hague's findings wash out injustice and allow the perpetrator his repercussions.
    Justice MUST prevail,
    But won't in today's mock attempt.
    Carry the dirt to light, and expose it. This will be the only way to have JUSTICE!

    Even with 20 years experience in criminal law i can't imagine what it must have been like for you to live with in a world without justice. That probably sounds strange to some people considering we are talking about a prison. Too many people are too quick to judge and spout idiotic quotes like "if you can do the time, then don't do the crime" It sounds like you suffered from depression in there which is understandable and it is a sickness to start with but and it sounds like you were being punished because of it. Where is the rehabilitation for prisoners? When you think about how many will be released back into society at some point and probably carrying a grudge or a slight mental disorder as a result of their treatment inside the jail. They are just creating sleeping volcanos and releasing them into the world to go off. Reform is needed and starting from the top.
    I hope you get your life back on track JM and i wish you all the best for the future.

    I can't tell if I'm surprised by this news or not. After all, we know some pretty bad things happen in other parts of the world, but it makes me wonder how many of these statistics came from America. I like the visuals, though, very straightforward and they got your point across.

    Yes criminilozation and prevention of consensual sex is a crime against humanity. In the concentration camps, Adolf hitter prevent the Jewish community of having the right of consensual sex. Unfortunately, these sexual concentration camps type of torturr still exist today

    it sickens me in stomach to see how cruel people can be today. Human cruelty is here and abroad. There are several inhumane beating videos circulating on Facebook of Haitians being beaten by Dominicans. It's sick!
