Kelly Virella, deputy editor at City Limits Magazine, talks about the City Limits' investigation of staff sexual abuse in New York State prisons for women.
I smell LAWYER FOOD here.Certainly, crime should be punished, but, the definition of SEXUAL HARASSMENT has certainly broadened as the opulence in Westchester and Hampton residences has.Build a contentious society of no moral values-who profits most? LAWYERS.Gee, if they actually had trials and there was public involvement and true analysis, but these creeps just want to settle and build a new swimming pool.
Why don't women come forward? Same reason the men don't come forward.
Some benefit most are just being victimized!!!
Stop softening this up, there are women and men being assaulted and killed!
I agree, sexual abuse in male prison's need to be investigated as well...urgently and it needs to be initiated by those in charge, inmates are hardly ever going to report this for fear of retaliation. Needs to be prioritized people are dying in there.
Thomas Jefferson forced his slaves into sexual relationships.
I'm all in favor of stopping sexual abuse of women prisoners. But when will we take sex abuse of male prisoners seriously?
And I do mean that literally. Everyone jokes about male on male rape in prison. Late night comedians and all. I feel like I'm the only person who doesn't get the joke.
