Nothing, it seems, is done to discourage homosexual contact between inmates that spreads STDs, lice and the like.
It would appear that society feels that since these people are behind bars anyway that they deserve anything unsavory they do or that happens to them.
Prisons are nothing more than warehouses for people.

The article says between officers and inmates.

That includes female officers, too.

Prison sex isn't about sex. It isn't homosexual. You have to be human first, and most of those animals don't count.

I am in total agreement. I also believe that prison workers turn a blind eye to all the rapes, and sexual activity. I'd like to know why this behavior is allowed? And why they are not held accountable. It has become a joke about sex, and rapes in prison, and I wonder does this say about our society?

By 'slip up" do you mean accidentally sell a bunch of dope? Accidentally fall on someone and stab them 72 times? Accidentally steal a car, drive it across state lines and crash it into a house?

You see, "slipping up", implies accidental. And you're stupid if you think any of what these animals did was "accidental".

You've obviously never spent any amount of time with the criminal element.

Prisons aren't warehouses and "rehabilitation" is a myth.

One slip away from being an animal? Are you f--king retarded on purpose? Or did your parents "slip up"?

What it says is...that if people CHOOSE to commit crimes and go to prison, oh well! Choices have consequences!! If people don't like the conditions in jail or prison, then here's a hint...DON'T COMMMIT CRIMES TO GET PUT THERE...idiots!!!!

Do you think that convicted rapists who get locked up should be protected from getting raped once they get in prison?Also... you might want to consider the fact that these people want what they get.. they commit crimes and get locked up and this is what happens to them.. So how can you really argue that they dont want to be raped?

While this statement is true the subject of sex between the officers in the prisons and the inmates are typically started by the OFFICERS. They think they can have their pick of the inmates just because they are there. Inmates are viewed as objects not people. Grant it that some are there for horrible things they have done and should be there. But this does not give the workers the right to prey upon them. I believe the laws should be changed to punish the workers.

Two men from KY have been beaten to death in TAMPA FLORIDA within the last several months.

One was eddie james ivey. He was beaten to death fifteen feet from the Tampa Fire Station in the driveway of a Tampa paramedic. No one saw a thing.

The other was just yesterday

Paul Edward Thompson

I ask because I am from Kentucky and have a lot of family there. Also ... one of Thompson's old neighbors on Horatio is a atalker and has tried to terrorize my cousins from their home. He has had two domestic violence injunctions filed against him and has connections at the courthouse enabling him to get away with anything apparently and NOW his neighbor is dead. Eddie James Ivey was beaten to death within three blocks of this guy's house, as well.

Please tell me if you know of them or know their families.
