STUDY: Officers Involved in Half of Reported Sexual Assaults in Prison

The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) has released a new study showing that at least 51% of the reported sexual assaults in prison involve guards and staff.

The guards and staff involved in the reports are rarely if ever prosecuted.

Only 1% of the staff responsible for the sexual misconduct has been convicted.

The majority either resigned or were fired without being prosecuted.

From 2009 to 2011, there were at least 25,000 reported “of sexual victimization in prisons, jails, and other adult correctional facilities,” according to the data.

Keyword: reported. 

The actual number may be as much as 50,000 to 100,000 for all anyone knows, given that officers are notorious for lying about and under-reporting their own crimes.

“Inmates don’t report because of the way the institution handles these complaints: they’re afraid if they do report, then the staff will retaliate,” says Kim Buchanan, a law professor at the USC, in an interview with ProPublica.

The study is even more disturbing when considered in light of the fact that most prison inmates are innocent non-violent Americans.

They were locked up due to victimless “crimes,” such as ingesting cannabis or owning an unregistered firearm in the wrong state.

This happens because the US government contracts with “private” prison corporations to fill them for more profit.




In order to make the most profit, the prisons have to be filled to their maximum capacity.

Thus the US government created more systems of law called the “War on Drugs” and the “War on Guns.”

These create more chances for Americans to “break the law” and get thrown in prison.

The enforcement of these laws gets passed down to cops on the street.

The cops then willingly participate in the scam by arresting citizens for victimless crimes that violate the “law.”

The result is that peaceful, non-violent Americans are taken from their families and subjected to real physical and sexual violence behind bars — most of which, it turns out, is committed by officers themselves.

Cops don’t think that they willingly participate in this scam, and will often say things like “I don’t make the law, I just enforce it” or “I’m just doing my job, gotta pay my bills.”

The reality behind statements like this is that they are avoiding self-responsibility. A person with integrity always accepts responsibility for his actions, and a person of honor does not participate in harming innocent people for a paycheck.
