The New York Review of Books: "The Rape of American Prisoners"
February 19, 2010 -
I am pleased to share "The Rape of American Prisoners," published in the most recent issue of The New York Review of Books.
This is the first of two articles about sexual abuse in U.S. detention facilities. In the first piece, David Kaiser and I discuss the magnitude of the problem, giving particular attention to sexual violence in juvenile detention facilities. In the second piece, (which will appear in the next issue of The New York Review of Books) we will talk about how preventable sexual abuse behind bars is -- but how reform efforts seem to be getting bogged down within the current Department of Justice.
