Psychological abuse

Taunting : Needless insults and profanity to prisoners to gain a feeling of superiority by any figure of authority. Enablement of Sexual Predators : Prisoner are sometimes purposefully housed with known rapists of other prisoners by prison guards-or protection from known rapists is purposefuly withheld. These practices create a very high incidence of rape in US prisons. This was the topic of the 2001 report No Escape from Human Right Watch.
