Annihilate Abuse in Prisons
Law breakers are people too!
Prison abuse is a terrible thing. Prisoners may have done things wrong, but everyone deserves a chance at redemption. Things are so bad in our prisons that most prisoners never make it out alive. Hardships the inmates face include beating with leathers straps, thumpings with rifle butts, the staking treatment: involved chaining a prisoner to stakes, and pouring molasses over his body while insects crawled all over him, the sweat box treatment, which was the practice of locking an inmate into a wooden box for days which was neither tall enough to stand or wide enough to sit, and the Georgia rack, which was an act of stretching a prisoner between two hooks with a cable and a turn crank, that literally stretched the body. Hygiene, food, and clean water were also issues.
Folsom State Prison
A work enforcement "Chain Gang"
Chain gangs were forced to work on railroads and such. The inmates were chained together and forced to work all day.
