    The very nature of prisons in the first place will lead to such things.

    The attempt to find a punishment that is neither cruel nor unusual has, surprisingly, resulted in a punishment that is far worse, it seems to me, than the things it replaced.Report

      Off of the top of my head…

      The Drug War.
      The (insane) sentencing guidelines.
      The homogenous cultures the imprisoned are most likely from forced into mingling with people from similarly homogenous cultures which results in tensions rather than heterogenous culture.

      That’s off the top of my head, though.Report
