Prisoners Are Being Abused
Many Prisoners' Basic Rights are being Violated
What is happening?
- An estimated 4.0% of state and federal prison inmates and 3.2% of jail inmates reported experiencing one or more incidents of sexual victimization by another inmate or facility staff in the past 12 months or since admission to the facility?
- There are over 2 million people that are incarcerated, so let's take the average of those two percentages, and apply that to 2 million! (3.6% x 2000000+) That's 72,000+ people who reported it within the last 12 months.
- Obviously this is a very large number! This definitely needs to be changed, so what should we do?
