I agree. I was sentenced to Pikeville in 1970. What I saw was sickening. The bigger black kids would rape and sodomize mostly white kids. I was in the dormitory in 3A platoon when I saw this young small kid being forced between the beds on the floor being raped. I was afraid and kept my mouth shut. I also was beaten and slapped but I managed to not be raped. The supervisors knew this was happening.
