Your use of the words "personal enjoyment" make my teeth hurt, because it drives home the point of how he was objectifying the children...in fact, that is my response to MP as well...to compare what he was doing to adult consensual sex or the extreme of being celibate is ridiculous. He was photographing them bound and gagged in bondage positions? Even better. I think I'd like to beat the living fuck out of this person myself. Gimme a tire iron.
Cuz lord knows prison should be a safe haven, akin to a kindergarten or a battered women's shelter. Prison should be a place you DON'T wanna go. And yeah, I'm totally okay with that.Violent offenders are most likely to commit these prison rapes and they don't commit them solely based on the victim being convicted of a sex crime. It's about getting the easiest target and since there are people like yourself running the prison systems or people in general who see it as just, sex offenders are most often the easiest targets. By condoning it, you are making prisons seem like heaven to prison rapists and even encouraging them to develop more violent behaviors. They get free food, free television, free health care and they can run around raping, beating the shit out of and murdering anyone on a whim.
Is it all preventable? Let me know how that works out for you.What bothers me isn't necessarily the way he was treated, but the way it's justified and even encouraged by the supposedly civilized. Aren't US prisons suppose to reform the prisoners? Well if the behaviors that got them sent to prison are being allowed and even encouraged, who is getting reformed? No one. As I said before, the situation escalates and now there are five more problems to deal with. It is all preventable and in the end it would be more beneficial to do so.
