Summary
  • With one out of every 140 people in the United States behind bars, the question of prisoner-on-prisoner sexual abuse can no longer be ignored. Male rape in prison can be vicious and brutal . Some of its victims contract HIV; all suffer psychological harm. Rape is not an inevitable consequence of prison life, but it is a predictable one if little is done to prevent and punish it. With this report, Human Right Watch calls upon federal and state authorities to address this serious nationwide problem
  • And recommendations -- Background -- Legal context -- Predators and victims -- Rape scenarios -- Body and soul: the physical and psychological injury of prison rape -- Anomaly or epidemic: the incidence of prisoner-on-prisoner rape -- Deliberate indifference: state authorities response to prisoner-on-prisoner sexual abuse -- I: Excerpts from prisoners' letters -- II: Miscellaneous documents
