"Sexual abuse in prison is distressingly common: the Justice Department estimated that more than 217,000 prisoners, including at least 17,000 juveniles, were raped or sexually abused in America in 2008. A total of 12% of juvenile detainees, 4.4% of prison inmates and 3.1% of jail inmates (in American terminology, prisons hold long-term convicts; jails hold people awaiting trial or serving short sentences) surveyed between 2008 and 2009 reported being forced into sex. And that is the number of people, not incidents; most victims are abused more than once. More inmates reported being abused by staff than by other inmates. Sex between guards and inmates is illegal in all 50 states."The Economist, May 5, 2011
Despite the number of inmates who are raped by their keepers, there are those who believe that this type of behavior is "rare." In 2009, a Dallas, Iowa (not Texas) County Jail Official was charged with raping a female inmate. Kevin Paul Hines was charged with felony sex abuse. Coming to his defense, Louisa County Sheriff Curt Braby, president of the Iowa State Sheriffs and Deputies Association, said such crimes are “very, very rare.” Well, if you can call 217,000 a year rapes of inmates by corrections officer, "rare," I wonder what you would call that many victims of human trafficking? I mean, the US Government reported that it had opened 2,515 suspected incidents of human trafficking between January 2008 and June 2010- two and a half years... and for this, they want to shut down adult ads on classified websites... but if there are 217,000 inmates rapes, such rapes are "rare"?
