    I think that everyone should read this article, people need to be more educated on the cruelty that exists in the prison systems.  It seems as though there is so much hatred on both ends of the correctional officers and prisoners, that is not healthy especially in close confinement.  What would be the most effective way to cut down on the physical and mental abuse?  In my opinion those who are biased on race, class and gender should not be allowed to work in this kind of environment.  The sad thing is that the families are helpless and can’t help those that are locked up and may never know what really happened to them.  Solitary confinement needs to be eliminated and a lot more effective way of separating inmates needs to happen.  Isolating them in a room that is cold, dark and not given adequate food is not going to have a positive result.
