The prison guards, in this case, were in control and allowed the beating to occur.Natural consequences are situations that are not controlled by anyone.
We don't have all the information, but it's pretty clear based on the stories that I've read that some prison guards bear some responsibility. I doubt this is official policy, and it's pretty ridiculous to assert that it would need to be official policy in order for there to be any responsibility. If anything, it would be unofficial policy. I hope you're not demanding interdepartmental memos as evidence, or something equally absurd.There is no implication that it is natural for one person to rape another, that's not what I'm suggesting at all and its totally out of keeping with my perspective as easily discerned from my posts in total in this thread.
Now to selectively cite this or that part with a particular spin does not benefit the dialogue nor does it particularly make your point well and its not something I would expect. Perhaps in a conversation where things can become heated or where other factors are at stake, in an online discussion where there is time and space to take a breath, think, reflect and then respond, surely not.
I seriously feel it remains to be seen the true extent to which the prison guards have neglected their duties and precisely why, I very much doubt that it would amount to an unofficial prison policy, tacitly agreed and operating like an open conspiracy. Imply such serves who? To what end?
Wait, prisons are full of criminals? Since when?The trouble about prisons is that they are full of criminals, criminals behave in a certain way, that much is surely beyond question, it is why they are taken from normal, lawful society and placed apart from it. It is surely not a surprise that they behave towards one another as they did towards anyone else.
I couldn't care less about rehabilitation. I care about corruption. These guards are corrupt. All other facts are peripheral.Perhaps the existence of continued predatory behaviour among inmates does retard or arrest any rehabilitation, if you believe in that kind of thing, perhaps in that respect this prison has failed or prisons per se fail but in respect of keeping this prepetrator from his original quary and prey or victims or their kin or any other innocent and lawful individual or child it has succeeded. For me that's enough you know.
