Prison Hell in America - by Stephen Lendman

Treatment in America's homeland gulag is horrific and unreported.

Prison is hell everywhere. America is no different in, by far, the world's largest gulag. Inmates are treated worse than subhumans. 

Torture is commonly used. It not just at Guantanamo and similar offshore hellholes. It happens across America in federal, state and local prisons where inmates are terrorized by dogs, shocked with cattle prods, burned by toxic chemicals, harmed by stun guns, beaten, stripped naked, raped, and abused in other ways.

In July 2008, the Southern California ACLU (ACLU/SC) released a "Report on Mental Health Issues at Los Angeles County Jail." It discussed how confinement in overcrowded conditions produces an epidemic of unaddressed mental health issues.

It also addressed excessive staff abuse, including beatings, compounded by the stress of overcrowding and deputy or inmate-on-inmate violence.

A previous article discussed it, accessed through the following link:
