 No Escape: Prison Rape (A Documentary)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0MOtz-eJlPE


This is a short documentary I came across while researching a school project. It was made in 2001 and it tells the story of 17 year old Rodney Hullin, who committed suicide in a Texas prison after being physically and sexually assaulted several times. I hope it opens the eyes of many to the problems of abuse and violence in america's prisons today.

EXCERPT:

===
Rape, especially gang rape, is almost exclusively a black on white occurrence. More than 90% of prison rapists are black and the instance of a white raping a black is the rarest of all. If this rankles your ideals about racial harmony and the essential equality of the races, etc. -- tough shit. Most rape victims are young and white... Blacks do sometimes rape other blacks, however; if you're black, you're not in the clear.

Many prisoners just kill themselves. Those who live and are released re-enter society every bit as f**ked up as you might expect.

The Times doesn't mention it, but the in-prison segregation needs to be preserved for yet another reason-to keep non-white inmates from raping whites, which they reportedly do routinely and with little concern for punishment or retaliation.

In a 2001 report published by the liberal Human Rights Watch, a researcher named Joanne Mariner disclosed facts the mainstream media have long ignored or denied: There are more men raped in the United States-about 90,000 every year-than women-a mere 40,000. Most of the male rapes take place in prison, and good many of them are interracial, with blacks and Hispanics searching out and raping white men. [No Escape: Male Rape in U.S. Prisons]

The stories the report recounts, described in a 2002 article in the newsletter American Renaissance, are graphic and repellent. "I had no choice but to submit to being Inmate B's prison wife," one white convict said. "In all reality, I was his slave.. I determined I'd be better off to willingly have sex with one person, than I would be to face violence and rape by multiple people. The most tragic part to this is that the person I chose to 'be with' has AIDS."

Another white prisoner in Michigan reported that the black inmate who "claimed me as his property" "publicly humiliated and degraded me, making sure all the inmates and guards knew that I was a queen and his property. Within a week he was pimping me out to other inmates at $3.00 a man. This state of existence continued for two months until he sold me for $25.00 to another black male who purchased me to be his wife." Those are only a couple of the less lurid stories from the Human Rights Watch report.

And why does this sort of thing happen? It happens not only because prison authorities don't stop it but because white prisoners themselves won't either. The report recounts that though neither black nor Hispanic convicts will tolerate a white man raping one of their own races, whites do virtually nothing to protect each other against black and Hispanic rapists.

As the report puts it, "African Americans typically face sexual abuse at the hands of other African Americans, and Hispanics at the hands of other Hispanics. Some inmates told Human Rights Watch that this pattern reflected an inmate rule, one that was strictly enforced: 'only a black can turn out [rape] a black, and only a chicano can turn out a chicano.' Breaking this rule by sexually abusing someone of another race or ethnicity, with the exception of a white inmate, could lead to racial or ethnic unrest, as other members of the victim's group would retaliate against the perpetrator's group."

The American Renaissance article put it a bit more bluntly: "The racial dynamic in prisons puts whites at a tremendous disadvantage. First, whites are often outnumbered by both blacks and Hispanics. But far more important, just as they show no racial solidarity in 'the free world,' whites in prison do not band together to protect each other from predators."

All of which helps explain why prison authorities want to keep the races segregated, at least until newcomers learn their way around. It may also explain why Garrison Johnson brought the lawsuit in the first place. But most of all, it helps explain what's wrong with white people-and not just those in prison.

No Escape: Male Rape in U.S. Prisons


READ PRISONERS' OWN STATEMENTS

http://www.hrw.org/reports/2001/prison/voices.html


I had no choice but to submit to being Inmate B's prison wife. Out of fear for my life, I submitted to sucking his dick, being f**ked in my ass, and performing other duties as a woman, such as making his bed. In all reality, I was his slave, as the Officials of the Arkansas Department of Corrections under the 'color of law' did absolutely nothing.
- M.P, Arkansas, pro se federal civil rights complaint filed 8/2/96

Most of the prisoners who rape are spending from 5 to life. And are part of a gang. They pick a loner smaller weaker individual. And make that person into a homosexual then sell him to other inmates or gangs. Anywhere from a pack of cigarettes to 2 cartons . . . . No one cares about you or anyone else. If they show kindness or are trying to be helpful, it is only because they want something. And if there offering you protection you can guarantee that there going to seek sexual favors. . . . When an inmate comes in for the first time and doesnt know anyone. The clicks and gangs. Watch him like Wolves readying there attacks. They see if he spends time alone, who he eats with. Its like the Wild Kingdom. Then they start playing with him, checking the new guy out. (They call him fresh meat.)
- J.G., Minnesota, 8/8/96

I've been sentenced for a D.U.I. offense. My 3rd one. When I first came to prison, I had no idea what to expect. Certainly none of this. I'm a tall white male, who unfortunately has a small amount of feminine characteristics. And very shy. These characteristics have got me raped so many times I have no more feelings physically. I have been raped by up to 5 black men and two white men at a time. I've had knifes at my head and throat. I had fought and been beat so hard that I didn't ever think I'd see straight again. One time when I refused to enter a cell, I was brutally attacked by staff and taken to segragation though I had only wanted to prevent the same and worse by not locking up with my cell mate. There is no supervision after lockdown. I was given a conduct report. I explained to the hearing officer what the issue was. He told me that off the record, He suggests I find a man I would/could willingly have sex with to prevent these things from happening. I've requested protective custody only to be denied. It is not available here. He also said there was no where to run to, and it would be best for me to accept things . . . . I probably have AIDS now. I have great difficulty raising food to my mouth from shaking after nightmares or thinking to hard on all this. . . . I've laid down without physical fight to be sodomized. To prevent so much damage in struggles, ripping and tearing. Though in not fighting, it caused my heart and spirit to be raped as well. Something I don't know if I'll ever forgive myself for.
- A.H., Indiana, 8/30/96

If a person is timid or shy or as prison inmates term him "Weak," either mentally or physically, he stands to be a victim of physical and/or sexual assault.
- R.B., Colorado, 9/1/96

I am giving you a breif description of the incient's i have suffered from while I've been in this institution. To begin with on Aug 1, 1996 Approx: 12:30 pm i was housed in E building i went to the officials on duty about a problem i was having with two (2) inmate's but it was disreguard. Than around and about Aug 16, 1996 i was sexual assaulted by the same two (2) inmate's. I was then taking to the medical department in cristeanna hospital for treatment. It's a big Rumor that one inmate has Aid's.
- T.A., Delaware, 9/2/96

Inmates confined for sexual offenses, especially those against juvenile victims, are at the bottom of the pecking order and consequentially most often victimized. Because of their crime, the general population justifies using their weakness by labling rape "just punishment" for their crime. Sexual offenders are the number one target group for prisoner rape. Inmates who come to prison at an early age are the second target group. Being younger, more physically attractive, and less likely to be infected with H.I.V., this group "needs to learn not to come back to prison a second time." Obviously this is a poor justification for rape, but in the prison social structure any excuse will do.
- L.V., Arkansas, 9/3/96

I hate to say this but if you weren't racist when you came to prison more than likely you will be when you leave. In Texas prisons race is the main issue and until people wake up and realize that nothing will change!
- T.B., Texas, 9/3/96

I was raped in prison from Feb 1991 through Nov 1991. From that it left me HIV positive.
- K.S., Arkansas, 9/4/96

I have been sexually assaulted twice since being incarcerated. Both times the staff refused to do anything except to lock me up and make accusations that I'm homosexual and that if I pursue legal action they'd ship me and both times they did.
- J.G., Florida, 9/4/96

What is more prevalent at TCIP (which, by the way, is a medium security, rural institution) is best called "coercion." I suppose you have an idea what these engagements entail. The victim is usually tricked into owing a favor. Here this is usually drugs, with the perpetrator seeming to be, to the victim, a really swell fellow and all. Soon, however, the victim is asked to repay all those joints or licks of dope-right away. Of course he has no drugs or money, and the only alternative is sexual favors. Once a prisoner is "turned-out," it's pretty much a done deal. I guess a good many victims just want to do their time and not risk any trouble, so they submit. . . . The coercion-type abuses continue because of their covert nature. From the way such attacks manifest, it can seem to others, administrators and prisoners, that the victims are just homosexual to begin with. Why else would they allow such a thing to happen, people might ask.
- J.S., Tennessee, 9/5/96

I was young and yes i was weak. My weight was only 120 lbs, the first few months i was raped and beat up many times, i would always Fight back, i wanted my attackers to know i was not a Willing Subject for their evilness. I went to the Guards for help and was told there was nothing that could be done, that i would have to stand up like a Man and Take Care of my own troubles.
- B.L, Florida, 9/5/96

Some prison rapists are so ignorant or delusional, they imagine the rape victim to be the homosexual-because he's doing the taking, not dishing it out (he's gay! he's performing a homosexual act!)
- J.J., California, 9/6/96

The rapes seem to be for two main reasons. 1. They hurt, someone must pay. 2. Being deprived of consensual sex, and self-centered, any hole will do. Power, control, revenge, seem to top the "reasons" for rape. The person assaulted is either seen as weaker, or gang banged if seen as stuck up kind of person. You know, refuses to swear, actually admits he is guilty, is seeking help etc. . . . I have yet to hear of an inmate being charged in court with sexual assault of an inmate. Have you? If just one was found guilty, got more time, things would change.
- D.A., Nebraska, 9/6/96

On January 27, 1993, I was forcefully raped! I was held down while at least 3 black inmates had anal intercourse using my rectum as their sexual pleasure release! From that day on, I was classified as a homosexual and was sold from one inmate to the next. I was sold for a $2.25 bag of coffee! . . . Blacks tend to rape the white inmates and force themselves on weaker inmates! I am one of the weaker inmates!
- J.D., Texas, 9/6/96

Most guys raped are guys for there first time locked up, between the ages 18-30 that looks young, not strong, looks lonely, scared. Guys watch these things.
- M.F., Ohio, 9/6/96

A lot of guys don't say enything about what happens to them, because they got to live there. What if they told, what could happen to them . . . I know you think they should tell what happens to them. But until you put yourself in there shoes you don't know what you do. Some prisons are hard. Fights, killings, ect. everyday. One thing guys don't like is guys who tell on others. What are your chances if you told on someone?
- M.F., Ohio, 9/6/96

I'm in protective custody have been since Feb of 95. My rape is known thru out the system as everyone know the person who did it likes to brag so its unsafe for me to be in population as now I'm a snitch, homo and my safety would be in jeopardy.
- R.G., Delaware, 9/6/96

When a man gets raped nobody gives a damn. Even the officers laugh about it. I bet he's going to be walking with a limp ha ha ha. I've heard them.
- J.G., Minnesota, 9/7/96

Most often the victom who reports a rape is again victomized by officials who write this inmate victom a disciplinary report of propaganda; officials do this in order to avoid law suits resulting from the rapes.
- E.R., Iowa, 9/9/96

When a man finally gets his victim, he protects him from everyone else, buys him anything, the victim washes his clothes, his cell, etc. In return, the entire prison knows that this guy has a "BITCH" or "girl." This gives power to the aggressors ego. In here, the egos multiply a lot more than in society.
Now I've seen this happen many many times. The response from the guards is "the strong survive," "who cares," or they join in on the teasing, tourmenting, etc.
- R.L., New York, 9/9/96

I've seen inmates attacked by two or three men at a time and forced to the floor, while two or three hold him down, the fourth man slaps vaseline on his rectum and rapes him. I knew two men who hung themselves after this.
- R.L., New York, 9/9/96

The more time a man has, the more respect he gets, the more he is feared, the more the guards ignore his misbehavior and let him do what he wants, including rape! The mentality of a lot of guards is that it's only a convicted felon screwing another, so who cares?
- R.L., New York, 9/9/96

The DOC covers their actions under the guise of security and the state court wears blinders.
- J.G., Florida, 9/9/96

I didn't want to tell on the inmates who raped me because I didn't want to be killed. If I had told on the inmates, They would have gotten me in another part of the Prison. Even Protective Custody Facility.
- R.H., Utah, 9/10/96

PRISON SURVIVAL


http://www.jinxmagazine.com/system.html



THIS f**kED-UP LOOKING JAMAICAN GUY WITH DREADLOCKS is hanging with his crew, and he goes to this white kid and says, "Yo, you want some of my cigarette?" And this white boy goes ahead and takes two pulls on the cigarette. This is in Queens Central Booking."

Taking those pulls on the Jamaican's smoke was the worst mistake in that white boy's life. It was the worst mistake Jose "King Boost" Morales had ever seen anybody make in all his years of hard time.

"The white boy gives the Jamaican back his cigarette," King Boost continues, "and the Jamaican guy takes a razor out of his mouth and shows it to him. He says to the white boy, "Now I want those pulls back."

"That white boy starts cryin," interrupts Boost's main partner, Chris.

"Yeah," continues Boost, " The Jamaican guy gets his boys to gather around them, so nobody can see, right? Then he tells them to kick a beat, to cover the noise so the guards won't hear. 'Cause there was guards right outside the tank, and if they would have heard anythign they would have been right in there. Now the Jamaican guys sits down on the bench and he takes out his dick. He says, "gimme those pulls."

"I seen that white boy," says Chris.

"He was cryin', 'cause he knew there wasn't nothing he could do. That white boy put his head down and sucked the Jamaican guy's dick then and there."

IN THE PAST THREE YEARS, EVERY PLACE in New York has gotten safer - but one. In the big house, it's always Jinx Time. To provide up-to-the-minute intelligence on the hazards of the Underground, Jinx magazine interviewed three highly qualified sources on the current situation inside the penal system. What we learned from Chris, Bays, and Boost, three Puerto Ricans from East New York, amounts to a guidebook through the worst hazards of the slam. Between them, Boost and his two friends have served time in Rehab, Juvenile, Municipal, State and Federal detention.

"I'll let you know," says Chris, "since Giuliani took office, they got everybody locked up. Everybody who ran it on the streets is in jail now, kid."

"I'd say eighty percent of the niggers in lockdown is hardcore criminals, repeat criminals," agrees Boost, who has high standards. The situation in other cities is comparable. You're not going to be camping with the Boy Scouts, young sportsman. Be on point.

Welcome to the other side
A night on the town in Central Booking.

YOU'VE BEEN ARRESTED AND BOOKED. YOU'VE EXPERIENCED the warm intimacy of a body cavity search. Whether the charge is plotting the violent overthrow of the government or driving under the influence, you're now headed for the same 12' X 20' cage. Take a deep breath. You'll be sealed inside with as many as 25 fellow guests.

"I had two of my boys with me the first time I got busted," says Boost. "So I wasn't really that worried." Chances are, you'll have better reason to fear than he had. Boost isn't a big man, but his experiences on the streets of New York have made him hard - and known.

If you're alone on your first pinch, scan the cell for familiar faces. Anyone you recognize from the outside, even if you've never said two words to him, is a potential ally. The idea is to make an acquaintance you can stick by. Of course, an acquaintance is not a friend.

"Don't try to make a friend," says Bays. "The problem with these niggers today is they too f**king smart. They play games with you."

Too much familiarity in conversation will be interpreted as weakness, an opening for psychological attack. This isn't group therapy, and you're not going to get anywhere by talking about your free floating anxiety. Be on alert if a prisoner starts trying to find out to much about you, asking you where you're from, how much money you have, whom you know. This man is trying to size you up and determine how to exploit you. There is a defense against this gambit, however.

"Flip it," says Bays. "Turn the shit around on him. Try to ask him the same questions he asking you."

Boost nods, "Don't let him get personal.

In the cage you'll see stockbrokers sleeping under benches. Men's characters will be tried over a few square feet of floor space. Do not be pushed around. You don't want to show weakness by sleeping next to the toilet, where you'll be repeatedly woken up, stepped on and splashed. Your time inside is a tightrope act, a walk along the line between dangerous extremes. It's suicide to show weakness, but no less so to make unnecessary trouble.

"I seen an old guy catch a crazy beatdown that first night," laughs Boost. "He deserved it. He was talking shit to two young black teenagers, and he punched them first."

That old man had to be carried out. He was having a seizure.

THE CORRECTIONS OFFICERS, CONTRARY TO WHAT YOU might suspect, are every bit as dangerous as the prisoners. Consider: they're the ones who have chosen to be here. Antagonize them or disrespect them under no circumstances.

"They'll hide your papers," says Bays. He means your docket papers, the papers that say you exist. "That's the worst feeling in the world - you see guys come in and in three days they get called out before you, and you like, oh shit, when am I getting out of here? 'Cause the guards put your papers back at the bottom of the pile."

"I seen 'em destroy niggers' papers," nods Chris.

The C.O.'s have less subtle methods of punishment at their disposal as well.

"They got a thing on they belts, and if you pull that thing out it's like an alarm, and in two seconds you'll have like eight big motherf**kers putting their sticks on you." Boost says, "I saw one guy who was in a fight, and they came in to break it up. He grabbed one of their clubs," he winces. "I heard that stick, I felt that stick hit his head."

If for any reason the guards should enter the cell while you're in there, turn away. Play the wall or hit the floor; there's going to be indiscriminate violence.

When they do call you out, you'll be glad they did. "I ain't gonna lie to you," says Chris. "When you get out after those three days, it feels good. You glad you went through it and made it."

The good feeling will wear off in a hurry if they sentence you and toss you back in.

Doing a bid
"this is the place where 99 men week while one man laughs." - Alexandr Solzhenitsyn.

THE SINGLE MOST PREVALENT FACT OF PRISON LIFE IS THAT there are powerful gangs. On Rikers Island you'll live among the Bloods, the Neta, and the Latin Kings.

The Bloods are new on the scene, and their tactics have garnished them some unwanted press. Ironically, the very brutality of the Bloods has rendered them harmless. Their mayhem against the Latin Kings, the general prison population and even the guards has forced the warden into a radical policy: locking them in their cells 24 hours a day.

"The bloods don't walk on Rikers Island," says Boost.

If you want to roll with a gang, the Neta may be your best bet.

"They're positive," says Boost, "They're a Latin gang, but they'll take anybody: faggots, whites, blacksS"

Being in a gang will give you clout. Your homeboys will be the eyes in back of your head. There is, however, a heavy price.

"One thing about the Neta, they expect you to be brothers for life. If you see a guy from the Neta on the street who was down with you on the inside, you supposed to be down with him on the outside too." If being beholden to a syndicate of armed career criminals isn't your idea of a smart long term plan, don't join. This is a most solemn commitment, not to be entered into lightly.

The Latin Kings are the largest prison gang in New York, as it is in may other parts of the country. The Kings run Rikers Island, and on the streets they have political ambitions and their sights on legitimacy. They're not quite there just yet. You may well find yourself automatically ineligible for LK membership; it is a requirement to have been born on one of the so-called Five Continents: Cuba, Mexico, Puerto Rico, El Salvador, or Nicaragua.

King Boost has a copy of his "Lessons of the Kings," their code of conduct, at his Brooklyn apartment. He's not at liberty to disclose those lessons at this time, and Jinx has chosen not to push the issue. One good Lesson of the Kings we came up with is, "Don't f**k with them."

Into the inferno
Overcoming the White Boy in you

WE ASKED KING BOOST, BAYS AND CHRIS WHAT THE white boy did wrong, and what he could have done differently, to avoid getting his mouth raped by the sword of evil. Sit up and pay attention, now, because you never know when the long arm of the law might tap you on the shoulder.

1. "He shouldn't have taken a hit on the cigarette." An obvious point? Maybe not. Our White Boy probably felt considerable pressure to accept out of politeness. In the mores of the slam, however, it's worse to owe somebody than to snub an offer.

2. He should have feared the shame more than the razor. It will require the hardest stoicism to accept a slashed face or a stabbed eye, but it's worse to submit. This is not a point of honor but of practical necessity. "It's worse to be a punk," says Boost. "'Cause then the whole jail will know they can use you." Anyone so branded is made a slave, sexual and otherwise, for the duration of his stay.

3. He should have fought back and raised his voice. "You don't want to call for help, 'cause that's just as bad as giving in," says Chris, "But you can make noise and fight, and the guards will hear." Making noise would have earned him a crown from the C.O.'s, but having fought back would have earned him some small measure of respect in the population.

THESE ARE THE UGLY CHOICES THAT MUST BE MADE IN THE cage. At times they won't seem like choices at all. Bear in mind at all times, though, that your actions here, as anywhere, will determine the way you're treated and perceived. Remember to make neither friends nor enemies. Neither antagonize nor scrape before any man. Remember that a stare is as good as a fight, but don't divert your gaze so quickly as to appear the coward. Reveal no more about yourself or your mission than is earnestly revealed to you. In short, the best thing you can do in the system is to act as a Friend of Jinx.

As for the worst thing you can do in the slam:

"Be fake," says King Boost. "That's the worst thing you can do. They'll figure you out."

No Escape: Male Rape in U.S. Prisons


READ PRISONERS' OWN STATEMENTS


http://www.hrw.org/reports/2001/prison/voices.html



Why prison sexual assault occurs: Part of it is revenge against what the non-white prisoners call, "The White Man," meaning authority and the justice system. A common comment is, "ya'll may run it out there, but this is our world!" More of it I think is the assaulters own insecurities and them trying to gain some respect in their peer group by showing that they "are a man." This subculture is concerned with appearances, and the more imposing an appearance, the more respect you command. Some of the guys I rode with didnt want any sex or $. They just wanted the status of having a "Kid." Naturally, I liked them best.
— S.H., Texas, 9/10/96

I was "rented out" for sexual favors, and a lot of the guys who rented me are not rapists, or assaulted as children, or any other stereotypical model. They just wanted some sexual satisfaction, even though they knew I was not deriving pleasure from it, and was there only because I was forced to. . . . I was with the Valluco (Valley) crowd, so I was only passed around to them for free. D. Town Hispanics had to pay. They were charged $3 for a blow-job, $5 for anal sex.
— S.H., Texas, 9/10/96

I had an officer tell me that "faggots like to suck dick, so why was I complaining." You and I realize that non-consensual sex is rape, regardless—a leap in thinking not possible for prison officials.
— S.H., Texas, 9/10/96

Defendant J.M, a security officer with the rank of sargeant, came to investigate the series of latest allegations. Defendant J.M. refused to interview the inmate witnesses and told plaintiff that he was lying about being sexually abused. After plaintiff vehemently protested that he was being truthful, defendant J.M. made comments that plaintiff "must be gay" for "letting them make you suck dick."
— S.H., Texas, 9/10/96 (legal papers)

[When I was sent to prison,] I was just barely 18 years of age, about 90 pounds. I did nine years from March 1983 to November 1991. In that 9 years I was raped several times. I never told on anyone for it, but did ask the officer for protective custody. But I was just sent to another part of the prison. Than raped again. Sent to another part of the prison. Etc. This went on for 9 years. I didn't want to tell on the inmates who raped me because I didn't want to be killed. . . . I came back to prison in 1993. In 1994 I was raped again. I attempted suicide. . . . The doctors here in the prison say "quote" major depression multiple neurotic symptoms, marked by excessive fear, unrelenting worry and debilitating anxiety. Antisocial suicidal ideation, self-degradation, paranoia and hopelessness are characteristic, "unquote."
— R.H., Utah, 9/10/96

[With coercive sex], one inmate will sidle up to another inmate and try to play on the inmate's emotions, as well as befriend him; this inmate usually being a "first-timer" who is quiet and reserved and without any established friends yet . . . . Eventually the weaker inmate is compelled to perform masturbation on the domineering inmate, or — at first — to pose nude before the domineering inmate while he masturbates. . . . Once the weaker inmate is hooked, the domineering inmate will share the details of his conquest with his buddies and then the weaker inmate finds himself dealing with more and more inmates vying for his services. By this time, the weaker inmate has had his self-esteem so lowered that he no longer cares and becomes a sexual substitute for whomever needs him.
— P.S., Texas, 9/10/96

I found out how people earn respect in here, you have to beat someone or shank them.
— J.G., Minnesota, 9/12/96

It's either rape or be raped and the racial tension doesn't help any.
— W.M., Texas, 9/13/96

Officers can't do anything unless an inmate say's something. If an inmate does, not only is that a sure sign of weakness, but a weak snitch to boot. Not worthy of living.
— W.M., Texas, 9/13/96

[You have to fight to be safe.] To give you an idea what I mean . . . I now have scar's where I've been gutted, under the right side of my chest below my heart, where my neck was cut open and under my left arm. That's not the many minor cuts and wound's can't include in this letter because of lack of times & space. People start to treat you right once you become deadly.
— W.M., Texas, 9/13/96

It's fixed where if you're raped, the only way you [can escape being a punk is if] you rape someone else. Yes I know that's fully screwed, but that's how your head is twisted. After it's over you may be disgusted with yourself, but you realize you're not powerless and that you can deliver as well as receive pain. Then it's up to you to decide whether you enjoy it or not. Most do, I don't. It's sick and depraved. It's also depressing when one of these boy's (another name for turn out), come up to you for protection because they know you won't hurt them as much because you've been through it & they don't have the nuts to break out themselves even when you tell them how.
— W.M., Texas, 9/13/96

My celly tried to rape me with a knife for a weapon, we fought and I got the knife and stabbed him to fight him off, I was charged with attempted murder and felonious assault and taken to trial, found guilty and received 12 to 15 years. The system feels that justice was done.
— L.L., Ohio, 9/14/96

What is needed in prison is one man cells, one man showers and for the officials to prosecute attackers instead of just locking them up in the hole.
— L.L., Ohio, 9/14/96

While serving my sentence at a former institution, I was severely beaten and gang raped, both orally and anally, by six black inmates . . . . It started by inmate [A] coming by my cell and waking me up at approximately 4:00 a.m. He said he wanted to come in and watch television with me. I said, "No, I'm trying to sleep." He said he's going to the booth and get my door open. I saw him go to the booth and told the booth officer to open my cell door . . . My cell door was not authorized to be opened.

By this time, I had turned on my overhead light and heard inmate [A] say to [the officer], "Open #222, so I can get his laundry." I didn't think nothing of it because we've had no prior problems before. I did think it was odd though. So he came in and sat on my bed . . . . About 5 to 10 minutes after that, inmate , [C], and [D] came into my cell. Then inmate [D] said, "We want some ass." I said, "I don't think so, I don't play that shit." When he said this, I said to myself, "Oh no! I'm in trouble!" I looked toward the door for an escape route finding it blocked, I went into myself to prepare for the worst.

Inmate [D] then said, "Either give it to Jesus or give it up." . . . .
It was at this time that the floor officer came by on the bottom tier (I was on the top tier), doing or supposedly doing, his rounds. He noticed the inmates in my cell and asked if everything was all right. Too terrified to answer, I just nodded. [The officer] never came to the top tier during his round. I was then directed back to my bed. Inmate then stood in front of me and pulled out his penis and forced it into my mouth. Inmate [C] then turn his turn. Pulling me to my feet, he then took my boxers off, bent me over and forced his penis inside. Inmate [D] laid on the bed, took my head and forced himself inside my mouth [All four of them, plus one more] took turns anally and orally raping me at the same time. All of them repeatedly did this.
Somewhere in the middle of this, inmate [F] entered . . . . [D]uring the rape, I believe it was him that said "suck this dick you white bitch.". . .

[One said:] "If you snitch on us, we'll kill you!!" The other said, "And if you do and you get transferred, you'll still die." At that time, I really believed them, and I still think this today.
—R.D, Virginia, 9/16/96

I remember after he left, the sun was rising, I was standing there in total shock. My body and my mind was numb. I didn't know what to do, so I just sat down on the commode and let what they ejaculated in me come out. After everything was out, I cleaned myself again. As I got up, I noticed the water in the commode was red. I washed myself again, put on all my clothes, got under the covers. The fear went on a rampage in my mind, shutting down my whole system. For the rest of the day I was like this. I do remember wanting to kill them or either myself . . . . I cannot fully state to you now the actual feelings of guilt or shame I felt at the time. In retrospect, I feel now that there was more I could have done and my mindset now is one of tremendous speculation. But, it all comes down to feelings of being inadequate in the defense of myself.
—R.D, Virginia, 9/16/96

I am a first-time non-violent offender, and committed a white-collar offense . . . . In September, 1994, during the week of Labor Day, I was accosted and raped in the shower . . . . While the entire incident did not last more than a few minutes, it seemed like an eternity. I was certain that I had indeed been sentenced to Hell. I was left badly bruised and crying, with a pretty hopeless outlook on the whole situation. There was no guard to be found, and so I was left to fend for myself.
—R.S., West Virginia, 9/16/96

Prison rapes occur for a number of reasons. One such reason is the insecure, weak inmate preying on another weaker inmate, to make an impression of toughness or ruthlessness that he hopes will discourage other inmates from doing the same thing to him . . . . The main reason why sexual assaults occur is because prison officials and staff promote them. It's their method of sacrificing the weak inmates to achieve and maintain control of the stronger aggressive or violent inmates.
— W.F., Missouri, 9/21/96

was sent to the orientation block to be cellmate with another prisoner already occupying a double cell. I did not know at the time that I was to share a double cell with him, that he was a known rapist in the prison . . . . I must point out that only a month and a half prior, he was accused of raping another man. On my fourth day of sharing the cell, I was ambushed and viciously raped by him. After being raped, I remained in shock and paralized in thought for two days until I was able to muster the courage to report it, this, the most dreadful and horrifying experience of my life.
—B.J., Connecticut, 9/23/96

I have long Blond hair and I weigh about 144 lbs. I am a free-world homosexual that looks and acts like a female . . . . In 1992 I came to this Unit and was put into population. There was so many gangs and violence that I had know choice but to hook up with someone that could make them give me a little respect. Well after a few days I guess he figured it was more problems than it was worth and decided to give in, "to them." A Black guy paid an officer two cartons of "Kools" to write me up so I could be moved to his block with him. Well they did just that. Money will buy anything here and I mean anything . . . . All open Homosexuals are preyed upon and if they don't choose up they get chosen.
— M.P., Arkansas, 9/24/96

When a new inmate enters an open barracks prison it triggers a sort of competition among the convicts as to who will seduce and subjugate that new arrival. Subjugation is mental, physical, financial, and sexual. Every new arrival is a potential victim. Unless the new arrival is strong, ugly, and efficient at violence, they are subject to get seduced, coerced, or raped . . . Psychosocially, emotionally, and physically the most dangerous and traumatic place I can conceive of is the open barracks prison when first viewed by a new inmate.
— L.V., Arkansas, 9/25/96

I was too embarrassed to tell the [corrections officers] what had happened [that I had been raped] . . . . The government acts as if a "man" is supposed to come right out and boldly say "I've been raped." You know that if it is degrading for a woman, how much more for a man.
— R.B., Kansas, 9/28/96

The guys who perform/promote these assaults are the "tough-guy" sorts. . . . [T]hese guys commit these attacks for power & control, not for the sex — although they are highly interested in sex. For many (most?) of these guys, it's a "badge of honor" for them, when they can abuse a "child molester" (especially sexually) and run them into p.c. (protective custody). . . . Self-esteem is a valuable commodity, in this environment, since a pronounced lack of it is a common factor among criminals. . . . By "stealing power" from others, these individuals are able to feel superior — which boosts their self-esteem.
— M.S., Nevada, 9/28/96

Prison officials seem to prefer the "slap on the wrist" in-house disciplinary approach over referring criminal charges against the perpetrators [of rape]. When pressed, they generally claim that this practice is to "protect the victim" (from an ugly court scene), but I believe it's to protect the prison from having to admit the problem exists.
— M.S., Nevada, 9/28/96

When I was sentenced I didn't hear the part of sentencing that stated, "you are hereby sentenced to six years of hard labor to the Texas Dept. of Criminal Justice. While there, you will be beaten daily, savagely raped, and tortured, mentally, to the point of contemplating suicide."
— L.O., Texas, 9/29/96

Young men and male of small frame structure is being beaten and raped as well as gay inmates by inmates of bigger size and gang members.
— R.G., California, 10/1/96

My abuse started in the county jail where I was raped by four inmates . . . . When I was sent to prison I informed them that I have been raped by gang member and was on medication. . . . Still I was being asked for sex and tolded that I would have to given over myself one way or another; at this point (looking back on the matter) I can see that I was going through a brake down mentally. Anyway that night I've made of my mind that I was taking my life for it seem as if that was the only way out of that Hell. So the sleeping medication that they was giving me, I save for 8 days which came to 800 MG and I took them. I was taken to the medical center where I stayed for 18 days. Every so often 5 or 6 Doctors would come into that room and look at me talking to their self. They would ask me how I feel and say no more. This one Doctor tolded me that they was going to put me back on the same yard. I told him if they do, I would take my life. He than said that he don't give a dam. I just hung my head low and cryed.
— R.G, California, 10/1/96

There is no safety for gays, young men, first timers and men of small built. The most rapes that happen are with the prison gangs. Young men and first timer's believe that they must join prison gangs for fear of safty of their lives. . . . It seem that young men and gays and first timmers are used as sacrificial lamb. The reason is to use these men as a way to keep the gangs and killers from turning on the system which created prison the Hell that it is. These young men, these gays, these first timers are turning into everything their abusers are.

No Escape: Male Rape in U.S. Prisons


READ PRISONERS' OWN STATEMENTS


http://www.hrw.org/reports/2001/prison/voices.html



On 10-12-93 I was assined to [a prison unit] in Abilene Texas and sense I have been on the unit I have been bete up on and sexually assaulted. It all started a week after I got to the unit. I was confronted by inmate [F] and at that time inmate [J] come up and sed that I am going to do him a faver or I will not walk out of my cell block and that was on 10-19-93. And by the time 1994 came around I had been bete up sevrule times and had been raped 2 times by the two inmates. One 5-26-94 I got assallted by a unnown inmate and have been sexually abuesd by a number of unnown inmates seens I have been on this unit. I have told the unit werdon and a number of the officers on the unit and have not got the proper proteshone that I need and the unit classification have denide me transfer to a safe keeping unit a number of times.
—D.M., Texas, 10/1/96

I was dehumanzied by the lack of empathy prison officials have towards victims of sexual assault, potential victims, inmates safety in general. Inmates are looked at and treated as subhuman across the board. If an incident can be covered it will be. If it can be ignored it will be.
— K.J., Georgia, 10/2/96

Upon my arrival to prison, my being small, white, some what feminine and niave to the Big City and prison ways, made me appear as an easy mark as a victim. A victim for extortion, robbery and/or sexual assault. I survived the attacks only because I fought several times. The fighting led the preditors to believe that I wasn't an easy mark and there was easier prey to attack.

I wish my tale ended there but it doesn't. After witnessing bigger stronger guys who had also fought back, be brutally attacked by more than one inmate and sexually assaulted, I was over-come with fear. The constant fear of being jumped by three or four guys and brutally beaten until I willingly let them sexually assault me, or was forced to endure a sexual assault, was too much for me. Wondering if I was next dominated my waking hours. I began to think of ways to escape the preditors. I chose to manipulate the psychiatric department into transferring me to a prison psychiatric hospital.

I thought that I had escaped the threat of rape, but I was wrong. Another patient there in the same dorm as me said he liked me and wanted to have sex with me. It was everywhere and escape seemed utterly hopeless. I was tired of living in fear and gave in to his demands. I let him use me and my body as if I were a real woman for his personal sexual gratification. Both oral and anal sex repeatedly for hours.

I was returned to the same prison I had fled from. Within 30 days I escaped from prison, the fear of being humiliated and treated as a sexual slave was too much and greater than the fear of being shot or prosecuted. . . . . My lawyer said that I had the best duress defense he'd ever seen.

After beating the DOC's attempt to prosecute me for escape, they enacted their vengeance. Having just turned 19 years old, they transfered me to Jackson prison. "The World's Largest Walled Prison" known for its stabbings and sexual attacks on young white males. The memory I have of my arrival is yells, mating calls and whistling at me as I walked to my cell at 2:30 am.

When in one 24 hr. period I received over a hundred notes asking who was my man, or threatening me, and more verbal threats, I attempted suicide by cutting my wrist; the only escape I could envision. When that failed the next man to approach me found me hopeless and depressed and I simply no longer cared about what happened to me. He claimed me as his property and I didnt dispute it. I became obedient, telling myself at least I was surviving. . . . He publicly humiliated and degraded me, making sure all the inmates and gaurds knew that I was a queen and his property. Within a week he was pimping me out to other inmates at $3.00 a man. This state of existence continued for two months until he sold me for $25.00 to another black male who purchased me to be his wife. It was another thirty days before an attorney was able to force the DOC to transfer me to another prison.
Word quickly spread of my activities at Jackson. That was the setting for the rest of my five yr. sentence. Though I was lucky, the rest was spent with only two men, and not hundreds of men.
— E.S., Mississippi, 10/4/96

Often the victim will be tied up on a bed, face down and sold until the debt is finished or until the novelty is gone.
— C.M., Illinois, 10/8/96

I really don't think that male on male rape is primarily a sexual thing. It is probably more of a power thing by which one person can maintain absolute control over another, or use the other to settle some financial responsibility.
— C.M., Illinois, 10/8/96

As I told you in my last letter I was sexually assulted when I was let out of adminstrative segregation July 17/96 and it got around pretty quick that I was a "turnout" they all knew. But the dude I was riding with he protected me as long as I did sexual favors for him. But he left. So no one was there to stop this inmate from falling in my house.

When he gets there he first demands money I have none so he takes my radio and headphones. He sends them to his house see he's out of place he is not supposed to be in my cell but I cant tell for fear of the other inmates. So I just stay on my bunk. Oh and we are on lock down so we only shower 3 times a week. He came in my cell Friday so he wont have a chance to go back to his cell until Monday so I just try and stay away from him.

On Saturday about 10 or 11 AM he tells me that he wants a blow job or he wants to have sex with me. Now I dont know why but I refused I said please dont so he hits me 3 times in my face and upper body I come down off the top bunk to try and defend my self but before I have a chance he pulls out a knife on me! When I reach for his wrist to try and get the knife I get cut but not to bad. But I do manage to get the knife away from him. I dont remember cutting him as many times as he was cut. But I took his own knife and I defended my self. He was cut a few times got a bunch of stitches: I then layed the weapon on the ground he picked it up and threw it out of the cell. I then started yelling for the Guards.

Now even though I was in my cell and he wasn't supposed to be there he was out of place even though I was cut and he admitted possion of the weapon and even though he admitted that he came in my cell to do me harm I was still given a major case "which f**ks off chance of parole for me for a long time." I was still put in solitary for segregation for 15 days. Now on 10/8/96 I was put in administrative segregation for assult with a weapon I dont even know when I'll get out plus they might file a free world charge on me so that I get more time. I tryed to tell them it was self defence and that I need protective custody but they wouldnt listen. I dont know what I'll do if Im charged cause I'll have to plea bargin I'd be to scared to take it to trial for fear of losing. Those people dont care about what happens in here and if I lose I'd get more time than if I plea bargined and alls I can do is hope for the best.
— T.B., Texas, 10/8/96

I didn't know how the prison system work, so this inmate come up to the A & O unit and gives me three packs of cigarettes, I didn't know where they came from, or why they was given to me, I took the cigarettes, two weeks later I was placed in population, and here come this big old guy name [M], telling me that I belong to him because he had bought me, and had the same guy there who had brought me the cigarettes to verify it.
—C.D., Indiana, 10/8/96

I know you don't want to hear this but it is prison officials, jail officials that causes men to be f**ked in prison. . . . [P]rison officials approve of men getting f**ked in prison and to attack it at the prisoners level, you are fighting a losing battle, start with prison officials, people in authority, they are the one that causes people to get f**ked against their will.
— C.D., Indiana, 10/8/96

I have seen or heard of rapes on a weekly basis at the least. Mostly it is a daily occurrence. Rapes are a very common occurrence due to the fact of coercion being "played" on ignorant first timers. Once someone is violated sexually and there is no consequences on the perpetrators, that person who was violated then becomes a mark or marked. That means he's fair game.
— M.B., Indiana, 10/10/96

As I go back to the time I was attacked, I was only about 145 lbs, white, blue eyed and smoothed skin. I was about 5' 10" and very disliking of crowds. It was about 1 pm or 1:30 pm before showers. 2 black males (gang related) ran into my cell, one very large and the other more my size. I was hit, and put face down on the mattress. A knee in my back and a pillow case under my chin (like a horse bridle), being weaker made me vulnerable to be taken advantage of (note: this paragraph is not detailed action for action but only a brief take). Being scared I was too much in a trance to go to the unranked officers because many at the time were promoters of the non-survival of the weak. . . . I feel that maybe some women might look at me as less than a man. My pride feels beaten to a pulp.
— E.R., Texas, 10/10/96.

Someone with a slower mental process or lower I.Q. usually gets tricked into sexual devastation in some decivious way and the officers look the other way or leave, as Texas stays understaffed for that reason so an officer can just walk off and never see a thing.
— R.B., Texas, 10/13/96

At least 90% of assaults are not even reported to staff. Occasionally the victim is a person who could fight off one inmate but there is a bet between groups or gangs to make him a "bitch," and the bettor will get a few of his home boys and go assault him.
— R.B., Texas, 10/13/96

Smaller, weaker, meeker individuals are usually targets. Meeker individuals tend to "act Gay" is how it's described here and in turn invites assault through the agressors mind. A new inmate needs to come into the system ready to fight and with a strong mind. He will be approached by a bigger guy who will let him know he's going to "fight, f**k or pay protection." . . . . He will offer the new comer wire (for a radio antena) coffee or something so the new comer will come back and the subject will come up every time the new comer comes around and before long the new comer wants to know what the deal is. They go to a job or fall off in a cell agree to be easy, keep it between them, just do each other, ect. When the dude get's the new comer it's over and the dude will tell the new comer he'll take care of him or he'll tell everybody he's just a little bitch . . . . Should the new comer seek assistance of staff, staff just laughs at him, the physic department just says what do you want me to do. It's a no win situation and frustration often leads them to keep up the practice.
— R.B., Texas, 10/13/96

Another game is to get an inmate indebted to an inmate give them a week to have your money when they don't it automatically doubles. Then the next week you take it out in trade. Even if the new comer has someone out there that will send the money, by the time they write and the money is sent and posted it's too late anyway. This way some will fight some will feel obligated. [The games] are endless but ever so real.
— R.B., Texas, 10/13/96

I have been on 3 units on one of the units I have been on, you heard of rapes just about daily on the other 2 though maybe you heard of rape once a month maybe. The units with the younger offenders seem to carry by far the higher rates of sexual assaults.
— R.B., Texas, 10/13/96

Texas does not pay inmates. Some inmates sell there bodies just for basics like toothpaste, soap, shampoo, tooth brush, deodorant, things others take for granted.
— R.B., Texas, 10/13/96

On the younger units I would say you have a rape at least weekly. From the people I have known in my 10 years I would say about 50% have been forced to hook up with someone not necessarily for protection but due to survival having necessities or attention.
— R.B., Texas, 10/13/96

I would say the bigger prisons allow more rape because of understaffing and the prisons with the younger offenders, not necessarily maximum security.
— R.B., Texas, 10/13/96

Even after the gang rape I endured, I was still poorly classified and two violent inmates with a record of violence threatened to sexually assault me and take my store goods. I tried to fight back, which resulted in my jaw being broke in 3 places.
— K.J., Georgia, 10/13/96

The man who is responsible for my rape has a history of this type of behaviour. He usually preys on young white kids. His method of approach is lending smokes and drugs to get them in debt and then asks to be repaid. When the person can't pay he offers to let them have sex, and when they say no, he rapes them. I don't know why I was a victim I owed him nothing neither did I associate with him. Did I turn him on? I porbably did, since I was 23 years old at that . . . as they say in prison--a sweet pretty young thing. My rape is known throughout the prison system as everyone knows the person who did it and likes to brag about it, so its unsafe for me to be in population as now I am a snitch, a homo and my safety is in jeapordy.
— R.G., Delaware, 10/17/96

Another type of coerced sex is for the dominant party to first let the intended victim know that he wants to have sex with him, then begin to wear the victim down by constantly leering at him in ways that let the victim know what's on his mind. Psychologically the victim eventually begins to believe he is a homosexual and no longer resists. It's similar to how a sexual abuse victim, afterward, begins to believe there is something wrong with them that caused the abuse to happen, which causes them to accept part of the responsibility for their abuse.
— P.S., Texas, 10/17/96

Being raped in prison is degrading and humiliating. It tags you as belonging to the inmate who raped you. One must never talk openly about being raped for fear of being severely beaten or killed.
— M.G., Oklahoma, 10/19/96

When a person come to prison, if they see fear in their face, or anywhere, they will be easy prey.
— M.O., Illinois, 10/20/96

While I was being uncuffed at the rec door by Officer W. he made the comment that faggots are sickening and disgusting. . . . Inmates see this type of behavior as approval to beat, rape and extort gay men in prison because of the anomosity and hateful attitudes displayed by the state.
— A.H., Indiana, 10/27/96 (offender grievance, denied 10/30/96, with response that "Officer W. states that he at no time mentioned the word fagget")

On 10-21-96 Officer G. came to get me from rec. . . . He had the leash wrapped around my waist, then yanked on it spinning me around. Telling me "move fag." I asked him what the hell was his problem. He shoved me and then yanked on the leash several times in the course of escorting me to my cell. Then pulled out the mace as though he were to spray me. He continued calling me a faggot dick sucker throughout this process. Officer M. witnessed this. . . . I have suffered from a lot of abuse in this prison including my rape to this kind of abuse from staff. I am sick of this treatment.
— A.H., Indiana, 10/21/96 (grievance filed, denied with response: "WRONG FORM")

Older men who have been in here for a long time like Young men because they are more healthy, better looking, and more inexperienced. The older men like the "power" they have over their victims. A Younger man is scared, nervous, shy, etc. He doesn't know what to do, so he freezes, get's very quiet, and allows himself to be victimized.
— R.L., New York, 10/21/96

The guards just turn their backs. Their mentality is the tougher, colder, and more cruel and inhuman a place is, the less chance a person will return. This is not true. The more negative experiences a person goes through, the more he turns into a violent, cruel, mean, heartless individual, I know this to be a fact.
— R.L., New York, 10/21/96

Transexuals and homosexuals are for the most part viewed as weak. One step up from rapist on the social ladder. Usually considered the property of another inmate.

In prison, male on male sexual relations are viewed differently then those of free-society. The aggressive person (male role) isn't considered a homosexual, or bisexual. He's thought of as heterosexual. Only the passive (female role) is considered homosexual or bisexual.
— E.S., Mississippi, 10/21/96

To begin let me tell you a little about myself. I am 32 yrs of age, I'm an American of African decent. I'm currently serving a 5 ½ yr sentence for trafficking in stolen property . . . . I feel I should also add because it has bearing on some of the observations I'll share with you, I'm gay and have been since I was aware of my sexuality . . . .

Let me say I believe there are different levels or kinds of rape in prison. First, there is what I will refer to as "Bodily Force Rape" for lack of a better term. This is the kind of assault where one or more individuals attack another individual and by beating and subduing him force sex either anal or oral on him.

Second there is what I'll call Rape By Threat. An example of this would be, when an individual tells a weaker individual that in order to avoid being assulted by the individual who's speaking he must submit to his demand for sex.

Third and by far the most common is what I'll call using a persons fears of his situation to convince him to submit to sex.

I will give you my observations on all these types of assult shortly; but first I feel I should tell you the people most at risk. And they are white males usualy slight of build and physicaly atractive, between 17-25 yrs of age. Please note although other ethnic groups such as young blacks and Hispanics have sufferd these indignities it happens to them far far less often than to young whites . . . . .

The last form of "rape," using a persons fear against him. Among inmates there is a debate wheather this is in fact rape at all. In my opinion it is in fact rape. Let me give you an example of what happens and you decide.

Example: A new inmate arrives. He has no funds for the things he needs such as soap, junk food, and drugs (there are a great deal of drugs in prisons). Someone befriends him and tells him if he needs anything come to him. The new arrival is some times aware, but most times not, that what he is receiving has a 100% interest rate that is compounded weekly. When the N.A. is in deep enough the "friend" will tell him he can cover some of his debt by submitting to sex. This has been the "friend's" objective from the begining. To manuver the N.A. into a corner where he's vulnerable. Is this rape? I think it is.
— B.H., Florida, 10/22/96

I believe only a minute amount of these incidences get reported; the individules this happens to live in fear. In fear of the perpetrators, but even more significant, thay fear other people knowing thay've been victomized in this mannor. They suffer in silence, think thay are less than men and fearing the world and thair familys will know of thair shame.

PRISONERS' VOICES

The first time [I was raped] I told on my attackers. All they did was moved me from one facility to another. And I saw my attacker again not too long after I tolded on him. Then I paid for it. Because I tolded on him, and he got even with me. So after that, I would not, did not tell again.
— R.H., Utah, 10/22/96

Most of the assults are done through threat of violence. The actual assult is mainly done by one person but the victim knows if he defies that one person then 10 to 15 other people will jump on him when he goes somewhere. Most of the time the victim doesnt even fight because he's scared. The only time there is really a group of people doing the actual rape is when the victim is fighting back and then they will beat him up and hold him down and rape him, but that is rare.
— T.B., Texas, 10/23/96

When they have a punk or a kid that they've turned out they treat them like trophies it makes them feel important or somebody with status! They thrive on the status they couldnt get in the free world. The punks or kids that they turnout they are like a flag to tell every one that this is mine I own this cause when they do turn out a guy they actually own them, every penny they get it goes to there man. You can buy a kid for 20 or 30 dollars on most wings!! They sell them like cattle.
— T.B., Texas, 10/23/96

[Someone attempted to rape him using a knife as a weapon:] [The rapist and I] went in front of the disciplinary committee. . . . [The officer] said well what do you want I said P.C. He said no not on my unit. He said Im locking you up for assult with a weapon. They would rather lock me in seg than put me on P.C. So I recieved the same thing the rapist did, it doesnt make any sence.
— T.B., Texas, 10/23/96

When I came out of prison, I remember thinking that others knew I had been raped just by looking at me. My behavior changed to such cold heartedness that I resented anyone who found reason to smile, to laugh, and to be happy.
— B.E., Vermont, 10/26/96 (he later committed rape himself)

During my time in prison, I have seen 19 violent rapes. I hear about rapes off and on, most are not known and not reported, cause most of them take place behind closed doors. If a vicitim is scared enough, he may never tell what happen to him, it depends on what the victim is focused on, like embarrassment, shame, escape, pain, aids, suicide, or living with a scar the rest of his life as a homosexual or bisexual, not letting go of the abuse in there minds. . . . The ones who get raped here are mostly the weaker prey, or someone who's in debt, or looking protection from someone else. Rapes happen to more younger prisoners. . . . What starts the biggest problem is when that vicitim get into it with an official, and that official because of his attitude will give out information like the inmate was a childmolester.
— C.K., Texas, 10/28/96

You will be lebled as a bisexual, or homosexual, pretty boy, gay, little girl, queen. Once there has been penetration or forced oral sex, the jacket is on his back, as being a punk, sissy, queer, etc.
— C.K., Texas, 10/28/96

One game is to have two/three guys threaten someone, and another guy come jump into it and tell them to back off. They do and the "Savior" tells the guy he'd be better off to get a ride. Lots of new guys dont know any better, but once you accept a ride, you can never be a man again. At least here on Beto. On Ferguson you can win back your manhood (provided you were never sexually assaulted) by a number of fights.
— S.H., Texas, 10/28/96

Gays are targeted as are meek, mild-mannered individuals. The general assumption is that since we are gay, we don't mind being raped, The staff pretty much thinks the same thing.
—P.E., Illinois, 10/28/96

The theory is that you are not gay or bisexual as long as YOU yourself do not allow another man to stick his penis into your mouth or anal passage. If you do the sticking, you can still consider yourself to be a macho man/heterosexual, according to their theory. This is a pretty universal/widespread theory.
— P.E., Illinois, 10/28/96

After all it is better to have one person that you give sexual favors than it would be to have to be forced to do the act by two or more prisoners at the same time.
— M.H., Florida, 10/29/96

Prisoners pay close attention to their fellow prisoners. [One technique to force a prisoner into sex is that] one of the bad guys will set up a power play. This is accomplished by him having two or three of his friends stop down on the prisoner of his choice in a strong manner as if to fight or beat up this prisoner. This usually puts the choosen prisoner in great fear of those type guys. The prisoner that set up this will be close by when this goes down. His roll is to step in just before the act gets physical. He defends the choosen prisoner by taken on the would be offenders. This works to gain the respect and trust of the choosen prisoner. After this encounter the choosen prisoner is encouraged to hang out with his new friend. This is repeated once or twice more to convence the choosen one of the sincere loyalties of the prisoner that set all this up . . . . They become very close, the choosen one feels compelled to show his thanks by giving at first monetary favors to his protector and it progress to the point where this guy that set up the attacks on him will not accept just the money. He starts to insist on the choosen one to give him sexual favors . . . . The fear of him, the choosen one, is that if he do not have this one Protector the rest of the guys will be back after him. After all it is better to have one person that you give sexual favors than it would be to have to be forced to do the act by two or more prisoners at the same time.
— M.H., Florida, 10/29/96

(S)ometimes [because of the rape] I fill like I've done something wrong but yea I hate myself for it but it was kind of hard to get away from 3 other guys. Now I'm at this place and a guy from [my last prison] got transfered here and has told alot of people what happened and now its even worse they think I'm a snitch or some one comes and starts homosexual conversations with me.
—F.H., Georgia, 10/29/96

The kids I know of here are kept in the hospital part of the prison until they turn 16. Then they are placed in general population. . . . At age 16, they are just thrown to the wolves, so to speak, in population. I have not heard of one making it more than a week in population without being "laid."
— D.A., Nebraska, 10/31/96 I'm a gay white slender male. That is the most terrible person to be. I'm unfortunately slightly feminine, soft as inmates say. — A.H., Indiana, 11/1/96

I have made it more than clear in writing and conversation to Mr. Gilmore for 3 weeks that I feel threaghtened and unsafe sexually. He has made it clear to me that he can not save the world. And won't do any thing til I come out here with my ass torn up with sperm in it.
— A.H., Indiana, (Request for Protection, signed 6/3/96, denied 6/5/96), forwarded 11/1/96

"Debt obligation" is where someone is allowed to run up a debt such as getting drugs on credit, to such a point where they can't pay it off; then the pressure (threat of violence — either to the inmate, or to his family on the streets) is applied, and it becomes a "put out, or be hurt" proposition. In Max. joints, the victim is often "used" for awhile, then "run off the yard" (chased into p.c.), or traded to another group, when the users tire of him. The process of turning someone into a punk is called "turning out."
— M.S., Nevada, 11/2/96

Rapes occur most often in housing units with 2 man cells, and in prisons where the inmates have less to lose if someone tells on them. Maximum security inmates often just don't "give a shit," because they have so little to lose; for them, rape is often a "win-win" situation, with no real down-side, since "hole time" simply means some extended privacy, and quiet time.
— M.S., Nevada, 11/2/96

There's also a "protection" game. This is where one guy will thump a "fish" (new arrival), and another one will step in, stop the fight, and offer to protect the fish. Usually, the aggressor and "savior" are good friends. Fish who have no means of paying the protection fees are generally talked into "turning out." Eventually, the fish winds up being passed to the aggressor, as a "peace offering."
— M.S., Nevada, 11/2/96

A male con maintains his sense of masculinity by forcing himself on another male, because the victim is reduced to a punk, "pussy," or coward by not preventing it.
— A.P., Kansas, 11/4/96

I go through nightmares of being raped and sexually assaulted. I can't stop thinking about it. I feel everyone is looking at me in a sexual way.
— J.D., Texas, 11/5/96

On January 27, 1993, I was what is called checked to see if I was a strong white inmate. I had to fight 4 different inmates back to back. I can not fight real good. (I have a bad left leg.) My cellie allowed this to happen. At rack time, my cellie and I fought. (He is 200 lbs and muscled. A stocky inmate that is known to fight 2 or more at one time and win.) He knocked me out and I came to while he was sexually assaulting me anally. He told me if I told anyone he would kill me. . . . I was moved to another pod, where I was sold as a piece of meat. I was sold to the highest bidder by the white inmates. I was sold to a black inmate named Gray Top. From February to the end of April I was forced to perform all types of sexual acts. I was rented out to other black inmates. I finally went to staff and refused to go back to my cell. The indangerment paperwork was filed. Classification was ran and I was put in safekeeping for 2 years. . . . I was shipped to another unit from Colfield unit on July 14, 1995. I was housed in closed custody where I was the only white inmate on my wing out of 48 inmates! I was in 13 fights in 14 days. I was sexually assaulted by 4 inmates (black). I went to staff. I was shipped to the Mark W. Stiles unit. I refused to go to my housing assignment due to I was being put back into a life threatening condition. So I started to threaten the first black inmate I came into contact with. I was put in prehearing detention. That's September 15, 1995. I started possessing a weapon and threatening black inmates. That was the only way staff officials would keep me locked up in a single cell.
— J.D., Texas, 11/5/96

In my view the perpetrator of rape is an angry man. He lacks power and decides to steal it from others through assault . . . . In my observation, the more oppressive the system the higher the incidents of assaultive behavior in general. This had been evident over the years here as we fell under the control of various wardens with a variety of concepts of how to treat prisoners (and staff). Fair and objective treatment seems to create a less-assaultive environment.
The victims I'm familiar with seem to have one thing in common, they each had some quality or trait that was interpreted by their rapists as saying, "I am vulnerable." . . . . The traits that seem to communicate "vulnerability" seem to be traits that are consistent with feminine and/or childlike qualities. These include passivity, being slight of stature, and probably most common, being young . . . . Conversely, a person who demonstrates aggressive qualities, or confidence and self assurance is not attractive to the perpetrator. One thing I hear people tell a young guy is to "get some ugly on him." That means growing facial hair, getting some tattoos, and looking unkempt.
—D.G., Virginia, 11/7/96

The greatest preventive measure [against rape] is posting staff, monitoring areas that are high risk for assault. The reality however, is that funding for prison administration doesn't provide for adequate patrolling . . . . Prisoners are pretty much left on their own.
—D.G., Virginia, 11/7/96

Over the years it has become evident that if a man reports that he has been raped he naively sets himself up for additional victimization, this time by the prison administration. Case in point: One of the victims I know was raped at knife point by his cell partner the third night after his arrival at the prison. The next morning he stayed in bed until the rapist left, then he used the toilet, showered, and reported the rape to his counselor. She notified the watch commander and sent the victim to medical. They informed him that there was nothing they could do since the evidence was eliminateed by using the toilet and showering. The watch commander locked him up in protective custody ostensibly to keep him safe while they conducted an investigation. He stayed in there for weeks with no communication about the investigation or when it would be safe for him to return to population. He finally chose to forego further "protective custody" and return to population. He learned that except for a brief shakedown of the rapist's cell (they wanted the knife but it was hidden the first morning after) nothing else had been done. There was nothing ever said of any investigation or any results. The rapist was free all the time the victim was locked up and continued to be. This seems to be the pattern when reporting rapes except that often the victim is transferred to another prison.
—D.G., Virginia, 11/7/96

On maximum security wings, blacks and whites don't even sit together. The Blacks have there own benches and the Mexicans have theres and the Whites if there are enough to fight for one has theres. And if a white went to sit on a Black bench he would be jumped on ditto for blacks and Mexicans. Even in celling assignments the whites will refuse to live with a colored or a mexican because there cellie who has friends will steel there stuff or they will jump on the white dude so they refuse to live with them. And if a white dude kicks it or talks to blacks or mexicans a lot of the whites will run court on him (court means an ass whoppin). Its the same for blacks and mexicans. . . . The whites hate the Blacks and Mexicans because those two races have a lot of people in here and take advantage of us by making the small and week ones ride or turn them out, and the big ones have to fight all the time. If you come in here as a non-racial white man and you fight for your proporty more than likely when you leave you'll be a full fledge KKK member! There are a lot of racial groups here and with the way the whites get treated, they get mixed up in those groups and become haters. Prison is the best recruiting ground the white power movement has!
— T.B., Texas, 11/15/96

Safe keeping is a wing where supposely inmates who are week and cant stand up for them selves are put. But its not too friendly because its easy to get on and that is where they put homo/bi/trans/sexuals. So a lot of hard core convicts want to go over and sometimes they do make it. If you ask any guard the close custody safe keeping wing is more violent than the regular one is.
— T.B., Texas, 11/15/96

The prison system is just a stage of the final solution to get rid of America's so-called problem, especially the Blacks and the Latinos. I ask the question [is it] bad luck, good luck or a set up that the prison system in the U.S. is half filled with Blacks when in fact they don't even make-up ½ of the population of the U.S.? . . . When individuals come to prison, they know that the first thing that they will have to do is fight. Now there are individuals that are from a certain race that the majority of them are not physically equip to fight. So they are the majority that are force to engage in sexual acts.
—V.H., Arkansas, 11/17/96

From my point of view, rape takes place every day. A prisoner that is engaging in sexual acts, not by force, is still a victim of rape because I know that deep inside this prisoner do not want to do the things that he is doing but he thinks that it is the only way that he can survive.
—V.H., Arkansas, 11/17/96

Most guys run in a pack, and most of them run in a pack just to keep from getting f**ked, especially young guys, gang affiliations plays a major role in everything in prison there are more people turn out be gang affiliations than any other, most time when a young boy is turned out by a gang, the sole purpose of that is first to f**k the boy especially young boys, once they finish with the boy they are sold to another prisoner for profit, it's big business selling boys in prisons and gang members control this business.
—C.D., Indiana, 11/20/96

(S)ay for instant you come into prison, you don't have anything, and they put you next door to me, here I am sitting here in this cell, I am watching T.V. color at that, listen to music, eating popcorn or whatever, drinkinUnit. About two or three Mexicans pushed me in to a cell and started slapping me and threatend to brutally beat me up if I didnt do what they said or if I snictched. They keep moving me to diffent pods. But as they call it here in prision these prisioners seem to have put a jacket on me that seems to follow me from prision to prision. And so what happend to me they first time has seemed to follow me from pod to pod or prision to prision . . . . So I got send to Darrington so some of they Guy's that had been at McNoll were there. And soon it spead that dude is a turn-out . . . . So then I got shipped to Hughe's unit and at that unit there were some Guy's there from McNoll and they word got out that I was a Pushover. So mam the same thing happend there Guy's would come up to me and say your going to be with me so if anyone ask you who you with say your with me.
—F.C., Texas, 1/6/97

Any [inmates] coerced into sex? In the interest of getting my own abuse to stop, and being extremely selfish, concerned with my own survival I can name three guys I personally coerced into sexual relations. Not with me, but with my own man to stop the abuse I was receiving from him. Selfish I know but my first concern is my own well-being. It's that kind of world in here.
—E.S., Mississippi, 1/15/97

I was 32 1/2 years old when the rape took place. . . . I am thin in built. My race is Native American . . . I am not a gay person . . . . I am also a very quiet and shy person. I also don't like being around people that much.
The inmate who assaulted me . . . . is a weight lifter, big built and very strong. . . .
Sometimes I fell that it was my fault and it drives me crazy to think about it . . . . I am mostly scared of what I might do when I get out of here. Very Suicidal - I just mean that I wish that I was dead at times and most of the times.
—C.B., Washington, 1/19/97

I do believe that there is a lot of coercion that is forced on inmates and these incidents are not turned in by the inmates who are raped or assaulted. They are afraid of retaliation from both the inmates, and the prison system.
—C.B., Washington, 2/11/97

The word "punk" has several meanings, it could mean a coward or a homosexual; "Queen" is a homosexual that dresses in drag and often looks like a woman; "Turn out" is also a homo that was turned into a homo, by being coerced; the word "Boy" is another way of saying my partner friend, etc. As far as crimes that don't fit it, usually are rapist, molesters, there looked upon with disdain and often find it rather hard to survive, once it's clearly established that they wasn't falsely accused, this has been a big problem. The relationship between a so-called Queen, and Man, are basically the same relationship between a male and a female, relations on the street. The Queens are majority practicing homos, so just picture normal male-female relations on the street, remember the whole objective is to make it as realistic as possible, that why homos try and look like women.
— R.B., California 2/14/97

The word "punk" in this facility is used loosely, and is a term used to down-size someone, as well as to identify an actual "punk" meaning a kid or guy who is used and exploited sexually because he is too timid or weak to make a stand . . . . A queen is an inmate acts like a woman. She wears make-up smuggled into the facility, or made by crushing up colored pencils etc. . . . To "turn-out" someone is to either get them to consent to sex, or to rape them. The result of "turning out" a kid is that the kid usually finds a "dad"—an older strong inmate to take care of him and to protect him from any future attacks. He is called a "boy." A boy is a nicer term for punk, so those terms overlap.
—J.O., Utah, 2/18/97

It is different here in maximum security as opposed to population in medium or minimum. The power structure here is based on strength, reputation, and sheer extreme violence. If your a tough convict and will poke an eye out or stab someone on the drop of a hat then you won't be bothered unless you owe drug money or something. Then the gangs will step in and its difficult to battle 10 guys at a time. The gang situation is ugly and out of hand. Mainly its the nazis and the black disciples. If you have drugs and connections meaning "back-up," then your pretty powerful. And the ones who sell the dope usually run with the gangs. But here in maximum, as I stated above, it comes down to raw brutality.
—J.O., Utah, 2/18/97

It is my observation that the most likely to be raped is the young kid new to prison who is not hip to the components of this ugly machine. The kid who just comes to prison, who is not willing to fight back is the unfortunate victim of rape . . . . A lot of times when a kid is raped he is told not to "snitch" or "else." The young rape victim is brainwashed to believe that by telling he is breaking the "code of the convict", and by doing so is doing something bad. Then he is brainwashed-exploited-turned out. He becomes a punk, a boy, someones property, and becomes just another silent victim. This cycle must be broken. Rather the kid tells, or arms himself with 10 inches of steel and thrusts it into the eye of his attacker—something must be done because I don't see it changing or getting any better.
—J.O., Utah, 2/18/97

To answer your questions, "lifers" are the most powerful within the prisoner hierarchy. This includes those prisoners who are serving life sentences and life without possibility of parole, as well as the older prisoners who have spent a majority of life in prison. Their power comes from respect; they are the most respected, thus are the most influencial. They have the most experience in prison life and usually don't have too much to lose as a consequence for their actions. So they are also the most feared because they are more likely to carry out certain acts.
At the bottom of the hierarchy are sex offenders. They are the least respected and the most preyed upon. It does not matter the age of their victims . . . . These people usually become victims of sexual abuses by other prisoners to experience what they put their victims through. Usually when this is done a background check is conducted to gather as many facts as possible about the crime and efforts are made to re-enact the scene as similar as possible.
Also at the bottom of the hierarchy are the "snitches" or "rats." These people become victims of [assault] because of their acts in telling on other people. . . .
A "punk" is someone who is considered weak . . . . A boy is someone who really has no place and is just used for whatever he has to offer. They are also commonly referred to as "f**k-boys," since it's usually their sex that they are used for. A "turn-out" is someone who may or may not actually be gay, but they never had a homosexual experience outside of prison. However, when they come to prison they engage in sexual activities, though usually under heavy persuasion in the beginning . . . .
In essence, "respect" is the ultimate key to survival in prison life.

I got a cellie . . . . and he said that he would protect me from [inmates who had threatened me] but I had to pay, if I didnt he would let them get me plus he would. He told his homeboy about what was going on and he's homeboy said he was going to protect me also but I had to pay . . . . August 1, when the officer [C] open the door I walked out and told him I need to speak with rank that it was very important . . . . I told him what my cellie wanted me to do. So he left me there and got rank . . . . Sgt. [P] ask me what was going on, I told him and told him that my life was in danger. He said for me to return to my cell and stand up and fight, because this was prison; if I didnt he would get a team and drag my ass back to my house. When I refused, he told [C] to put me in the holding cage. I walked to the cage on my own and went in. Sgt. [P] came back and told me to put the handcuffs on. When I told him I couldnt, he opened the cage door and told me to put the cuffs on. There with him was [C], (B), and [V]. I told him if he was gonna force me that they needed to get the camera first. [P] put the handcuffs in my face and said that he was gonna get the camera after he f**ked me up. He kept telling me to put the cuffs on, but I refused, because of the risk. So [P] told the officers to grab me. They grabbed me. Stunned me to the floor and began punching me in my head and kicking me in my ribs. They put the handcuffs on and by that time I looked up and a officer had a camera. Sgt. Purris ask me if I would get up on my own. I did. They took me to medical and brought me back to my cell. When they put me back in my cell, I was crying for what they done. My cellie's homeboy that said he would protect me he came over to my cell when they ran rec. My cellie was gone. He ask me what happen and what was I crying for. He ask me how I was going to pay him. I told him when I went to the store I would pay him. But he said I want to f**k. I told him that I didnt do that. He said you remember what the deal we made. So I said but I dont do that kind of stuff. So he kept saying he aint gonna take long. So he had me have anal sex with him. After that, my cellie came back from rec, he found out what his homeboy did and told me he wanted to do the same. He also made me have anal sex. The next day the same officers were working and I was scared to tell them because of what they did before . . . . My cellie told me that at last chow his homeboy wanted me to come over and stay all night in his cell. So I waited until last chow. I went an ate, when I came back there was a officer walking with all the inmates. So I let all the inmates go in and stop the officer and told him the problem . . . . He took me to see Lt [T]. I told her what was going on, and needed to be locked up. She told me the only way that I could get locked up was if I refused housing and I would receive a case. I said I didnt care, I just needed her help. She sent me to lock up (pre-hearing detention). There I was given 15 days solitary . . . . I was pulled out and seen by Mrs. [P], Capt. [C], and Major [H]. I told my complaint and Mrs. [P] said that I was never raped that I just gave it up. Capt. [R] said that close custody was no risk, that I was well protected. I asked him how so, when I was raped plus inmates get stabbed each day. I wasnt answered. They tried to make it look as if I was asking for a transfer and not protective custody. I was denied help and sent back to my cell. . . . I took 18 pills trying to overdose. I was sent to medical and put back in my cell. From then on I began geting cases everyday to stay in solitary. Finally they got tired of me geting cases and refusing housing and placed me in segregation.
— L.T., Texas, 2/19/97

Turn-out . . . is the term used to describe the process of getting a man who has never had male-male sex to have sex with another man. Almost always as a passive partner. The act of turning out usually implies that the man enjoys the sex now or will willingly continue to have sex with other men after the turn out. People are turned out through rape, threats, con-games, pressure, aquiring debts or romance. A man who has been "turned out" usually becomes a queen or fag and is always a catcher. There is literally thousands of mind games used to turn out, unsuspecting, naive young men.
—E.S., Mississippi, 2/21/97

[Inmates low on the prison power structure include:] Any man who has, or is having sex with another man, by helping that other man obtain a climax through performing oral sex on him or letting the other man penetrate his rectum. Within this catagory is a structure. A. Queen because they are open about it and closest to being a woman. B. Fag, because they didn't become gay in prison. C. Boy. D. Punk because he does it out of fear, for protection or as a victim.
—E.S., Mississippi, 2/21/97

[T]wo things are considered when making a target for rape: 1. Appearance and sex appeal. 2. Finance. A young good looking guy who's family sends him money is the choice target for rape. In most cases the rape is only to break his spirit and make him submissive and open for financial scams. Sex becomes the control agent. There are other rapes occurring . . . . Targets are feminine guys, for sexual pleasure: proud guys . . . usually for a show of power or ego (confirming of manhood) by degrading another.
—E.S., Mississippi, 2/21/97

The Mexicans—indeed all latinos, nobody outside their race can "check" one without permission from the town that, that person is from. If a black dude were to check a mexican w/out such permission & the mexican stays down & fights back, a riot will take place.
—T.D., Texas, 3/14/97

While being checked isn't deemed a sexual attack, if one doesn't show heart & breaks weak he will become anothers property. It would amaze you (as it did me) to see human beings bought & sold like shoes. Don't get me wrong, mexicans are turned out by mexicans & blacks by blacks & then sold to other races. A person who may be only paying protection to one group could be sold to another & be turned out. All races are guilty the white race is only more victimized because there are less whites in prison.
—T.D., Texas, 3/14/97

(B)ased on my experience the most common kind of rape in prisons today is the confidence rape which involves the rapist getting the confidence of the victim and then at some point turning on him and raping him. In my opinion the next in frequency would be the date rape where one inmate convinces another to double cell with him and then at some point rapes him. The next would be extortion rape followed by drugging rape and finally strong arm rape. The reason strong arm rape is the least frequent is because it is so much easier to rape an inmate using the other techniques. None of the types of prison rape described are rare. If anything they are rarely reported. Rape really is a big problem in prisons today. To give you an idea of how frequent rape is in prison, if victims would report every time they were raped in prison I would say that in the prison that I am in (which is a medium minimum security prison) there would be a reported incident every day.
—V.H., Pennsylvania, 3/15/97

In my thinking much of the consensual homosexual activity in prisons today are engaged in out of one parties' fear of prison if not of his lover. Thus most prison sexual relations are unequal.
—V.H., Pennsylvania, 3/15/97

There is no procedures for reporting sex abuse in here, it either happen or it dont, and "NO" I don't know of anyone who is being prosecuted for raping a guy. The only thing these guys can do is learn to fight better than the next guy. . . . [H]ere an inmate is turned out, and made to like it.
—C.D., Indiana, 5/27/97

  • ne day I was moved into a cell with this big guy that got into a lot of trouble and got into fights a lot. Well, I don't really know how to say it but I was affraid of him and when he told me he wanted sex one night I did it with him. I basically became his sex toy after that. Every night we had sex, and whatever he wanted. Oral, anal, and some disgusting stuff. This went on for a long time until I was able to get moved out of that cell.

—G.M., Ohio, 5/28/97

If I had a young good looking male friend, who had money and was not a fighter, coming to prison and I had to give him a formula for survival this is what I would say to him . . . . First, and foremost do not become familiar or personal with anyone. Trust no one, guards or inmates. Keep your case, personal views and opinions, family life, history and dreams to yourself. Do not share them . . . . Secondly, do not appear feminine in appearance, speech or actions. Maintain some facial hair, short nails, short hair, etc. to keep from being even accidently mistaken as a possible victim. Third, stick to your own race group as associates, but do not be racist.
—E.S., Mississippi, 6/1/97

When I was beaten and raped it was in the shower that was at the old Mansfield prison in Mansfield Ohio. . . . I have been to 4 Ohio prisons and at no time was I ever warned about the danger of sexual assault. No one ever told me of ways to protect myself. And to this day I've never heard of a procedure for reporting rape. This is never talked about . . . . I've basically found that guards and staff of the prisons don't care about your safety . . . . At the old Mansfield prison where my assault took place this type of stuff took place daily.
So no I didn't tell anyone about it. To be honest, you are the first person I've told in all these years and that is because you are not part of the prison. I was put on Protective Custody/Suicide Watch because I tried to kill myself several times and because they heard guys threaten to rape me, beat me up
—G.M., Ohio, 6/27/97

I believe the reason prison rape occurs is because the administration does not care, if you rape another inmate you do a few days in the hole and the victum goes to P.C. protective custody "hole" but if he fights and hurts his attacker as I did he is prosecuted and receives more time. As of this time I have almost 14 years in prison and have never heard of a prison rape case being prosecuted in court . . . . I'm quite sure if a man committed a rape in prison and got 5 or 10 years time, prison rape would decline.
—L.L., Ohio, 8/10/97

it is a lot of mental slavery involde and most of the sexual abuse and rapes never get reported because the victim is scare so the rest of their time in prison they become someone wife as they call it here. a lot of times when it is reported to Guards will over look it because they thing the inmate is just have a little problem with the one they are tied or married with. when a Report is done they lock up the inmate who did what ever he did for about 30 at the most and let him back out of the hold. they may send him to another camp. but the victim goes through a lot of pressure because of what happen and it will happen more and they get beat up or threaten with knifes so they end up submitting to them so they will not get hurt or killed.
— K.R., Missouri, 9/8/97

what happen to me was because I am a Homosexual I have a Husband in the free world on the other side of the Prison fence I did not want to do anything while I am in prison. Well there was 4 black inmate and 2 white inmates that raped me the Guards did nothing because I am a Homosexual.
—K.R., Missouri, 9/9/97

On March 13, 1994 I was sexually assaulted by E.W. . . . I was 21 yrs. old at the time and a non-violent inmate . . . . The way the crime took place is that I was in the bed asleep when the floor officer left his post. When Officer White left his block E.W. had my door opened by the officer in the booth. He came into my room and put a knife (homemade) to my throat and told me if I moved he would kill me. He then pulled the blanket off of me and told me to fall over onto my stomach. He then pulled my undershorts down and squirted somekind of petroleum greese into my rectom. He then penetrated me and when he finished he told me if I said anything he would kill me. He then left my room and his partner R.S. came in and found me crying. He told me to shut up before he hit me and gave me something to cry about. At this time R.S. told me he come into my room to do the same thing but changed his mind. He told me I could either let him gun me down (look at my rear end necked while he masturbated) or it would be worse then the first time. He then told me to follow him to his room. I followed him to his room and tried to talk him out of doing this to me. At this time Sgt. D and c/o White came into the block and saw me in R.S.'s room. They took me to the Sgt.'s office to find out what was going on. I told them what had happened and they arranged for me to be taken to the hospital. At the hospital they done a rape kit and charges were filed against E.W. for (crimes against nature and 2nd degree sexual assault). On March 27, 1996, Mr. D.B., the D.A for [this] county arranged for a telephone call for me to call his office. At this time Mr. B. told me he had to dismiss charges against Mr. W. because he messed up on his paper work. He said that with all the evidence from the rape kit another inmate's testimony and E.W.'s prior record (in prison for 2 counts of rape plus 2 or 3 charges of rape in prison) we would have won with no problem.
—J.E., North Carolina, 9/15/97

Most prisoners that have been raped are then forced by the rest of the prison population to continue to play the female role whether they prefer homosexuality or not.
—J.E., North Carolina, 9/15/97

Most prisoners are in general a con artist, and prison rape can occur as part of a con game. There is a never ending stream of new people being placed in prison. In this hostile and violent enviornment one can easily see why one might look for a friend, that is a persons first mistake. Prison rapist will use this search for friendship to get to familiarize themself with a person, and then use the first chance they get to rape the person. Some will phsically force the inmate into a sex act, and some will mentally break an individual down by bombarding him with a strong prison mentality about it being okay. Some try to get an inmate in debt to where they can't pay and then make them feel they are obligated to perform the sex act as payment. There are numerous ways inmates use to so called "break a person down", and in my over 7 years in prisons I've seen some shocking incidents.
—J.E., North Carolina, 9/15/97

I was forced into masturbating him to his ejacolation . . . . He told me if I were to tell he would kill me . . . . [T]he emotional termoil I struggle with since that night is so sickening, hard to feel good about self. To make things worse is that the reporting officers let this sick inmate get away with what he did and made me do.
—K.G., Utah, 9/17/97

As far as I know NOTHING happened to [the inmate who raped me.] I don't even believe he faced disciplinary action . . . . No, I didn't get a letter from [the district attorney] on why charged [against the rapist] were dismissed. He talked to me on the telephone. He couldn't even meet me face to face to tell me. All I recall him saying is that [the rapist's] lawyer filed a motion for a fast and speedy trial and he didn't pay attention to the dates on his paper work.
—J.E., North Carolina, 9/30/97

A big male may approach this young scared kid with: "You f**k me, or you f**k that whole gang." . . . The young man—or kid hasn't a prayer. If he fights back, and stabbs someone in his self protection, the Administration makes a freeworld case over it, and it's all to common that a kid can come down with a 5 yr sentense, and within a year or two, wind-up with life without parole. If a kid is raped, and reports it to the Administration, they severely punish the kid, and do absolutely nothing to the predators. I've seen this time after time. Usually here, a youth takes "a Man" and becomes his: "f**k Boy." He submits at the pleasure of "His Man." The Man may prostitute him for money, drugs or what-ever. His Man forms a protection network, "Friends" to protect his territory.
—P.S., Alabama, 10/6/97

I came to prison in April, 1991. I'd never been to prison before. I basically feared for my life . . . . Eventually, I ended up with a roommate who took advantage of my situation. He made me feel "protected" somewhat. But, at the same time, he let me know he could quite capably beat me up, if he wanted. One night, after we were all locked down for the night, he told me he could help me overcome my sexual inhibitions, if I would let him. He told me he was bisexual. I knew he was quite sexually active, so to speak, as he had female pornography in the room as well as masturbating frequently to it. But, I was surprised he would come on to me. However, I felt very much in danger if I did not give in to him. I was very scared. I ended up letting him penetrate me anally. After this, I would feign sleep at night when he'd come in. But, there were several more times he forced me to perform sexually . . . . Luckily, we were separated when he asked to move in with a friend. Therefore, I had to endure no more abuse. I never went to the authorities, as I was too fearful of the consequences from any other inmate. I already had enough problems, so didn't want to add to them by taking on the prison identity as a "rat" or "snitch." I already feared for my life. I didn't want to make it worse . . . . If the truth be known, it shames me to even talk of this. I fear it places a stigma on me of being homosexual or being an "easy target" for others.
—J.D., Colorado, 10/12/97

one night 4 weeks into my prison stay i was tested by a very big north amerikkkan prisoner. He attempted to lay a bully game down on me by taking my seat in the lounge room. which led to me resorting back to my street warfare attack which was my only choice to set a solid example that i am not to be played with. The end result was he being put in the hospital broke jaw/nose an me having a broke wrist an a battery case.
—L.Q., Indiana, 12/3/97

Keep in mind that tough and hard in the upper and middle classes is far different than that of the lower classes. For where being nice and sociable may be accepted in the upper and middle classes, it is a tabu in the lower, and especially when confined. . . . [A prisoner's problems] will be reciprocal to his youth, race, and size. . . . [When first assigned to a cell, he] will be under microscopic inspection for any weakness. Because if he smokes, the acceptance of a cigarette may have a hidden price attached.
—W.M., Texas, 12/26/97

More often than not, Human Error in Classification and assignment of prisoners adds to the prison and jail sexual assaults and rapes. Not to mention the arbitrary imposition of punishment by intentional misclassification or mis-assignment [because of] spite or dislike for a prisoner.
—W.M., Texas, 12/26/97

[L]atent homosexual tendencies may be seen in a timid or passive person who has been misclassified.
—W.M., Texas, 12/26/97

[My cellmate] was younger, stronger than I and larger. He introduced himself as a bi-sexual. And was for two weeks "touchie-feelie." I had to screem/yell at him to stop. The officers here 1. Ignored my complaints. 2. Asked me if I was his lover. 3. Did nothing. He became more difficult to deal with and started to threaten me. Finally one day he attacked me.
— D.G., Texas, 1/15/98

[Here is a typical scenario you may face as a prisoner:] you are fairly young, good-looking and not emotionally hardened. You are fearful and lonely and respond to a smiling seemingly kindly face. This person knows all the blind spots and the guards' timing, even who'll look away. Suddenly you find yourself alone with a very different person and in a few minutes are utterly over-powered physically or with a blade holding you still, while you swallow his organ or are split open in your bowels. Then he goes and tells his friends and very soon you are a "candy store" for them. If you tell, a hit is put on you and sooner or later someone will collect, often someone you don't even know.
— D.W., Kansas, 2/23/98

Most cons are emotionally alienated from themselves. The peer pressure not to be seen as "weak" pertaining to any gentler emotion, is astronomically intense. Such a display sets one up to be the victimized very quickly. Also, the societal culture mind-set that men don't have finer emotions, has conditioned men not to display physical emotional bonding except with someone who is physically "inferior," ie., women, children, etc. In prison, to gain a simple hug which is emotionally soothing without being threatening, the dominator can only accept from the dominated. [Also] a prisoner experiences profound powerlessness of self over one's life and future. One of the most basic ways to resume an illusion of empowerment of self is to establish power over another at ground zero: life and sexual gratification.
—D.W., Kansas, 2/23/98

I have been getting sexually assaulted at the Unit Mark W. Stiles in Beaumont by two inmates. I tried to commit suicide in hopes of releaving the misery of it. . . . I was made to perform oral sex on the two inmates for exchange of protection from other inmates. . . . I reported the action of the inmates to the Unit authority but did not get any help so that is when I slashed both my wrists in hope of dying.
—D.E., Texas 5/14/98

I have aquired me a Husband to make my time easy he is a very big guy about 295 lbs and 6'3 or 4" cocoa brown he is a black man very big black man. However he's been real good to me.
—P.N., Texas, 5/14/98

This letter is not the easiest letter to write, in fact, it's very hard. You see, I am such a prisoner. I was raped on the Beto one unit of Texas Dept. of Criminal Justice, (TDCJ), in 1991, by 3 black inmates. I was snatched into a cell and raped by two, while the 3rd kept watch for the gaurd and held a homemade knife to my throat. They alternated for an hour . . . . No body seems to care. It is very depressing. I dont know where else to turn to. I've completely exhausted my grievance procedures. My grievance came back to me stating that my denial of protective custody was not a grievable claim. Ironic. I had just gotten almost killed yet I dont have a claim to protective custody. Ive been forced to give up my money, my self esteem, I've been raped, I've been beat up numerous times, had my ribs broken, yet I still don't have a claim to protective custody! Maybe when I am dead they will say I should have been placed into protective custody.
—J.W., Texas, 5/31/98

In my experience having a "boy" (meaning white man) to a negro in prison is sort of a "trophy" to his fellow black inmates. And I think the roots of the problem goes back a long time ago to when the African Americans where in the bonds of slavery. They have a favorite remark: "It ain't no fun when the rabbit's got the gun, is it?"
—J.W., Texas, 5/31/98

I think [rape] also occurs because a lot of the inmates of all races are financially poor. They have no family in the free world to send them money. Even here money is a very important issue. A lot of white inmates pay money to one gang to protect them from another. It's called catching "a ride." It's also not uncommon for an inmate to be sold to another gang to avoid a gang war.
—J.W., Texas, 5/31/98

I only can tell you that the inmates act aggresively to inmates who look like they are scared.
—D.E., Texas, 6/2/98

On the Conally Unit I was forced to pay protection fees and I was beaten on a regular basis but was often denied medical treatment because the officers felt the smaller weaker inmates should just die or suffer because we are unable to defend ourselves. On several occasions I was masturbated on while I tried to shower and once I was beaten because I would not perform sexual favors for two black inmates . . . . [At Telford Unit] I was constantly pressured to perform sexual favors and once I was held at knife-point and was raped by an inmate named Cruz. I was ashamed and very confused. I went to the units officials for help and was treated very harshly. I was affraid to tell them I had been raped.
—L.B., Texas, 6/20/98

I've seen one guy raped but the prison authorities not prosecute the rapist because they said the guy was a homosexual who was raped and because it happened in the rapist's cell. The guy raped was "out-of-place" there . . . . I think many case of sexual assault go unreported because of what we see take place of past reports. For example with the guy above, they said things like "the guy was gay, he asked for it." Bullshit. I knew the guy. Besides, noone bleeds like that who isnt forced.

PRISONERS' VOICES

I would say the occurrence of a person being violently raped like I was is rare. Most often the person is coerced into submitting to sexual activity slowly. Each time it progressively gets worse in the extent to which it is taken. Before you know it you've gone from washing personal laundry to wearing lipstick.
—J.W., Texas, 7/5/98

When I was on the Robertson Unit I was rape by 4-5 blacks I was in my cell and they fell in and said are you going fight or f**k I said I going fight they gang up on me and forced me down and forced oral and anal sex and they did repeatly about 9 times they also beat me up pretty bad I was also forced by the mexicans for anal sex when I was in the dorms for protection. I didn't report none of this cause of fear of getting hurt they hurt me pretty bad when they raped me.
—J.S., Texas, 9/1/98

Prison rape has left me a different person. In jail there's no help really. I have to deal with it on my own.
—E.K., New Mexico, 9/10/98

Sorry for taking so long to write, but I have been having a lot of trouble. I'm 16teen. I got into a fight and I got a broke bone in my arm. It don't hurt that bad. Now about the trouble I have been having. I have had 2 people try to rape me. I have been in 8 fights' and got beat by the officers 4 times . . . . I have tryed to go to P.C. [protective custody] but they wouldn't let me.
—R.P., Arkansas, 9/14/98

Lt. B.W. had me identify the assailant in front of approximately "20" other inmates . . . which immediately put my safty & life in danger as a "snitch" for telling on the other inmate who sexually assaulted me . . . . Prison officials claimed Nothing happen yet they transfered the assailant who sexually assaulted Me. Showing the officials guilt. But by the Prison officials trying to Place Me Back in Population after I identified the assailant in front of 20 inmates clearly placed my life in danger Because of the "snitch" concept.
—D.A., Texas, 9/18/98

[My brother] Chris has been the victem of numerous assaults by various groups of inmates; namely, African American's, some belonging to a gang known as the "Crips." These individuals have repeatedly tried to force their extortion demands, and sexual advances upon Chris. Whenever he resists these demands/advances, he gets beaten down severely. Incidently, Chris has also served time in the California Dept of Corrections (CDC). While he was in the CDC, he was unwillingly made a member of the California Aryan Brotherhood; which is a long time rival of the Texas Aryan Brotherhood! Some of Chris' assailants are members of his rival gang in Texas (AB). Chris has suffered from several serious injuries from these assaults, involving members of the Crips and the Texas AB both (e.g., broken leg, broken nose, broken teeth, lacerations, concussions, contusions, trauma, threats, etc.) . . . . Many of these attacks occurred in the presence of TDCJ-ID correctional officers, yet none of the officers would intervene on Chris' behalf . . . . There are many young caucasian men in TDCJ-ID, that are being victomized like Chris. I believe that the answer, in part, is "racial segregation"! And for the officials to take such complaints . . . More Seriously!
—S.K., Texas, 9/18/98

This letter is about rape but not as defined by law, "the forceful taking," it is more towards "psychological manipulation." It happened to me . . . . I made the excellent victim. I'm white, 27, non-violent, loner, who receives little help from the outside ie family, and low self-esteem. Other inmates saw me as a target. I'm young, good-looking, have some femine mannerisms and naive. Some wanted to be my "friend" to "look out for me." But they just wanted to use me. One inmate would stake claim to you by becoming your "friend" hanging out with you all the time. In reality, he was saying "don't touch he's mine." Its a gradually process that you become dependent on this person whether its financial, physical or emotional. But sooner or later there comes a time when he wants a return in his investment, a sexual return . . . . You don't want to ruin your "friendship" by saying no to something you don't want to do because then you don't get the "support" financial or emotional from your friend. So you do what he wants, I did, and that's how you get hooked.
—P.L., Florida, 9/27/98

While I have never been raped or forced into any homosexual activity, during my first prison sentence I did encounter some subtle sexual pressure to engage in it. . . . The game goes like this - the prey is usually a new arrival into the prison who has but a relatively short time to do, who is young and naive. The predator will befried the new arrival but at the same time he will have some of his partners confronting the new arrival with intimidation and threats of sexual violence. Once the new inmate is pressured hard enough the predator will make an advance towards him with a threat if rejected that he'll be at the mercy of the predators friends unless the new arrival becomes his "boy," then he'll be protected and no one else will harrass him.
—G.L., Florida, 9/28/98

The one playing the male role refuses to see himself as a homosexual he see himself as a real man with strenght. He doesn't realize he's giving into his baser desires is really a sick perverted weakness. The one who plays the female role is known as a "baby." The "real" men like to get together to brag about their conquests, compare and trade information about all of the "babies" in the prison system, or spread malicious rumors about those babies or the straight guys who spurn them.
—G.L., Florida, 9/28/98

I am a self-confessed homosexual . . . . I have witnessed on numerous occassions many rapes forcefully and through manipulation. I have been a victim of both on a couple of occassions. . . . Homosexual harassment in the Fl D.O.C. is common. Every day I experience some type of harassment from officers and inmates alike. Name calling, joking, Aids jokes, stereo-typed as having Aids etc. . . . Rape is widespread in F.D.O.C., however most of the sexual targeting is done through manipulation and putting fear into the weak timid young guys.
—D.L., Florida, 9/29/98

The two people that tryed to rape me they wher both black they were alot biger then me they wher both G.D. [Gangster Disciples, a gang] they wher from Little Rock . . . . When I was in B pod I had 3 dude's coming to me that said they was the only thing that was keeping me from getting raped, and they wanted to jack off and look at me. The pod I'm in now I had 2 people come to me and put a ink pen to my neck and tell me that if I didn't let them jack off on me they were going to rape me. I told the officer but they didn't do any thing about it.
—R.P., Arkansas, 10/5/98 (age 16)

Why does prison rape occur? . . . . There are a number of white "Peckerwoods" see temporary sexual fulfillment, such as blow-jobs or anal sex as temporarily acceptable. Not me. I suggest it's homosexual.
—B.H., Oregon, 11/2/98

As cops look the other way on tatooing, traficing and trading, consental sexual activities they begin to look the other way on other things also. They begin ignoring what they see in all aspects. If it's an assault they try to patch it over so they don't have to do the paperwork.
—R.B., Texas, 11/10/98

I was 17 years old and weighed 133 pounds when I first came to the TDC ID back in January of 1992. While I was going through the process to be assigned to a unit many inmates would whistle at me and tell me Im a convicts dream "girl" come true.
Other inmates would tell me "I hope you can fight" because "they" are going to "check" me and see if I would stay down fur mine and if I don't well I will be wearing cool offs or using colored pencils for make up.
Many inmates would tell me horror stories about prison and "they" would tell me I would probably go to Furgason or Beto one [units]. What those inmates were doing was putting the fear of God into me telling me Im going to get beat down probably clicked on to break me and in my young mind I know Im going to break because I don't want to go through that kind of pain or abuse.
. . . . The cellie I had [at my first unit] was asking me what am I going to do. I said what do you mean? He said are you going to fight, f**k, or bust a sixty. . . . So that night I spent there I was so scared I couldn't eat sleep or barely walk. . . . I was thinking I rather kill myself than go through all that torture and pain and misery. So the closet thing I came to was the razor I had so I broke it down and sliced my wrist. I cut my wrist 9 different times my blood just splurting out and about. But it just wasn't enough time to do what I wanted.
. . . . Well before long one day I went to the shower somehow I was all by myself and [a Mexican inmate who was a weightlifter] came in there and saw me well thats when he said "you know what time it is." I said what are you talking about. He said he wants me to give him oral sex or he'll beat me down and take me the way he wants to. I started crying because of what he was doing so I told him no so he started knocking me around and said I am going to do it. He just kept on so with shame in myself I gave him oral sex and later he forced his self upon me from the other end.
I put up with that for about a year but I was scared to tell anyone of staff because I was afraid all they would call me is a weak homosexual and not help me so I kept it to myself. . . .
[Later in another unit] I met my cellie [X]. . . a dude that became my problem. Well while I was studying him he was telling me if any one trys to make me ride let him know and he would take care of it. No sooner than he said that a big black dude they call big moe . . . came to my door. . . . . No sooner than that my cellie jumped in the conversation while Mosely was trying to get my cell door open, and [X] said that it was all good we don't need no problems. So Mosely said Oh hes with you and left. . . .
[X] said Im riding with him and if I don't like that we can fight then Ill let my homeboys have you. If you don't want to go through that then this is the deal. "You will clean the house," he said, have my clothes clean and when Im ready to get my "freak" no arguments or there will be a punishment! I will, he said, let my homeboys have you or Ill just sale you off. Do we have an understanding? With fear, misery, and confusion inside me . . . I said yes with a faint sound. Then he said one more thing. He told me if I ever run to staff for help about my situation Im in he would kill me, beat me to the bloody, or have me killed and later I found out all these dudes are the Crips. . . .
The next cellie I had which was a small but cool Mexican dude that didn't give me any problems so I was alright for that time. . . .
After four months of going through so much shame, hatred and abuse I didn't know what I should do with myself.
. . . . Well before long I ended up talking to a Sargent. Who was Sargent [D.] that work 2nd shift from 2 pm to 10 pm. When he took me into the office the first thing he said was a sarcastic sounding, "whats the problem someone makein you ride tryin to sell you to someone, and you come to tell on someone." I didn't know how to explain my situation to him very well because of what remarks he was giving me making me feel like a weak punk telling me Im not the only one here with the same problem.
—G.H., Texas 12/1/98

Though I am 5'10" in height, I am a small person weighing only about 140 pounds. In addition, I am gay and quite obviously effeminate and my mannerisms attract other more aggressive prisoners who seek to sexually abuse my body. I am unable to adequately defend myself from muscle-bound individuals . . . . When I entered the TDCJ-ID this time on or about May 4, 1994, the mainframe classification computer recommended that I be placed back in safekeeping . . . . Despite the mainframe computer's recommendation to place me back in safekeeping, the Clemens Unit officials overrode that recommendation and placed me in the regular general population. As soon as I arrived in my housing area the aggressive prisoners came to me and tried to pressure me into giving in to their sexual demands. I was beaten three times within the first month, each time because I refused to "ride" with certain individuals, or because I wouldn't "choose a man," as they referred to it. On each occasion in which another prisoner threatened or assaulted me I immediately informed officials. Instead of realizing the problem — that I was going to be prone to assaults and sexual assaults in the future, that I was not in the appropriate classification assignment — prison officials charged me with disciplinary offenses of fighting as a result of my futile attempts to defend myself. Prison officials in the TDCJ-ID customarily charge both inmates involved in a physical altercation with disciplinary offenses, regardless of who was the culprit, and regardless of who came out the victor. On each occasion I was the one who was attacked and beaten, yet I received disciplinary offenses nevertheless . . . . Prison officials would treat me in the infirmary, bandage me up, and then release me right back to the same area(s) in which the assaults occurred. My personal property was stolen from me on several occasions and I was eventually forced to give in to inmates' desires for sex because prison officials would not protect me to prevent the assaults from recurring.
—J.C., Texas, 12/16/98

[While I was in a temporary cell], officers allowed another inmate who was not assigned to my cell to enter and stay in my cell for two days with me. This was two days of living hell in which he raped and abused my body. He threatened to kill me if I let officials know. However, I began kicking the cell door anyway after the second day and officials came to my aid. I informed officials of what had transpired the previous two days, but it was logged that I merely "alleged" that I had been sexually assaulted and raped. The inmate was charged only with the disciplinary offense of threatening me, he got away with the sexual assaults — a much more serious offense — unpunished.
—J.C., Texas, 12/16/98

More recently on [another] unit, I was assaulted by a man about 6'7" and weighing approximately 280 pounds. He grabbed me by the throat and threw me a few feet to the ground. He did this because I had my shirt off in the day room while in public. It was as if he felt that a "girl" isn't supposed to have "her" shirt off in public. Yet, I told him that I was a man just like him, at which time he committed the assault. I immediately informed officials, who then ordered a physical. However, I was afterword told to return to my cell, where the individual lived a few doors down, and that nothing else would be done to protect me. I was assaulted by the same individual three days in a row, each time I informed officials of what happened and pointed him out.
—J.C., Texas, 12/16/98

After my several attempts up to that point in trying to get officials to protect me in situations where I was threatened, assaulted or sexually assaulted from other inmates because I am a smaller, effeminate man, I finally gave in to some black Crip gang members who pressured me to "ride" with them or else. I realized that informing officials of the threats and my fears resulting was futile, that every time it was me who got punished. So, I gave in and was forced to perform sexually for numerous members of this gang for two and a half months.
—J.C., Texas, 12/16/98

I have been threatend with being raped on numerous occations. One statement was "the snitchen bitch ought to be f**ked in the ass until she can't talk, then she'll never be able to tell again." The newly remodled showers in our wing now have no privacy midsection curtains, like they used to. Even the menial task of taking a shower has become a forum for verbal sexual threats.
—C.W., Nevada, 12/24/98

I'm a victim of another prisoner targeting me & attempting to punk me out, and make me his boy. He used threats, intimidation, and violence. This went on for a few weeks, however, he never got what he was after! He did pull my pants down & touched me. He knocked me out once, but nothing happened as far as I could tell.
—C.B., Minnesota, 1/23/99

Sexual assaults are common everyday occurances in prisons, a simple fact . . . . And it is a violent sexual act (no matter how one characterizes it, i.e., ‘control'; ‘violence'; ‘rage' etc., it is sexuality).
—J.G., Colorado, 1/31/99

A lot of the housing here is in "open bay" dorms. A guy was sleeping on the top bunk, laying on his stomach, about six or eight other guys come up to him, without waking, and carefully draped a sheet over his upper body. At that point, two of them braced their feet under his bed and pulled down on the sheet, therefore pinning him to his bed. A couple more held his legs, pulled his clothing off, and raped him, each taking turns as the others held him. As they run in packs such as that down here in the Florida system, any sign of weakness is pounced upon.
—C.P., Florida, 2/18/99

Mostely young youthful Boy's are raped because of their youth and tenderness, and smooth skin that in the mind of the one duing the raping he think of the smooth skin and picture a woman . . . . Prisoners even fight each other over a youth without the young man knowing anything about it to see whom will have the Boy first as his property.
—W.W., Florida, 2/19/99

I am of slender build and not very muscular, though I am not a bean-pole either. Due to my demeanor and awkwardness (gait, inability to effectively talk as a typical prisoner, etc.) I am targeted for harassment and extortion by other prisoners. I am not homosexual and it has been my resistance to those inmates against it (when approached or threatened for sexual acts) that has brought me injury and reproach . . . . The first incident of sexual harassment and assault occurred at Union Correctional Institution in 1994 on the recreation yard . . . . The inmate had been attempting to extort me for sexual acts and assaulted me on the recreation yard after I would not yield. I was shortly after transferred to Florida State Prison for my own protection . . . . For approximately two (2) years I was in a single-man cell with open bar fronts. The verbal sexual harassment continued from those inmates around me . . . . When I confronted the administration with the true facts of what was occurring to me, I was told to use violence to solve my problem.
—R.M., Florida, 2/25/99

9 times out of 10 when someone in here is raped no one knows. It is like a tree falling in the woods when no one is around . . . Why? Because if the rape victim goes to the officer and tells he's been raped all that can follow is Hell for the victim. And all inmates know this . . . . So if one gets raped he may either #1 pay for protection from other inmates. #2 Check in. Request protection for some other reason. Very seldom will someone let it be known that he was raped . . . . Word travels so Fast in prison. The Convict grape vine is Large. You cant run or hide.
—R.E., Florida, 3/5/99 I have not reported any incidents, either [sexual] assault or harassment. Unfortunately, it is a fact of prison life and exists in all prisons I have been to . . . . I have not seeked any type of counseling and in fact am in denial that it has happened to me. I feel like I am no longer a "man", at least not recognized as one on the inside. I constantly have to watch what I do and say, so that it is not misinterpreted for something else. I can not accept "gifts" from anyone, for fear that it may have a "catch" to it. And of course the I'm your friend trust me . . . . I built a wall around me and everyone will remain on the other side a stranger. I try to stay in the officers' view at all times. And of course I have a weapon now in case I have to defend myself I would rather die than go through that horror.
—P.E., Florida, 3/6/99

[Why does prison rape occur?] Predatory inmates/gangs are rarely prosecuted by state and federal courts for extorting and sexually abusing inmates in prisons. . . . Gangs of black and spanish inmates are very angry at freeworld white people for a variety of reasons, and this results in an attitude of vengeance towards white people in prisons. . . . Victim inmates are scared to report sexual abuse to prison officials because they fear that will be attacked by friends of the victimizer or by another racial group—even if transferred to another prison unit or placed in protective custody. [What are the characteristics of prison inmates who are sexually abused?] Mentally ill; primarily white inmates; physically small; inmates who are not emotionally or physically violent in nature (passive people); child molesters/rapists. . . . I have had to stab other inmates to prevent them from sexually abusing me. . . . I have been approached numerous times over the past 6 ½ years of my incarceration. They either want sex or money.
—J.F., Texas, 3/22/99

Rape in the Illinois prison system is out of control. It seems that at times guards have placed me in dangerous situations on purpose. I came in the system at a young age and was raped in the first cell I was placed in. The shame that I experienced can't be described. Since then I've been attacked 3 times each resulting in rape. I'm now in a supermax prison where I'm safe, but I can't stay here for ever.
—A.R., Illinois, 3/28/99

When I first came into Lake Butler [prison] I was being raped by the same person everyday . . . . This is my first experience in prison so I did not know what to expect. I thought that kind of thing happens in prison, I just never thought that I would encounter the experience myself. When I went to speak to the inspector he was also trying to tell me that I was a homosexual. He was making this assumption by the way I was sitting and talking with him in his office. He was telling me that I was bring on the problem myself, in other words, he was telling me that because of the way I look.
—G.C., Florida, 5/13/99

[In prison], sometimes the sex act is for purely sexual purposes (gratification), other times it is a vehicle of expression of other passionate psychological dynamics (to give a sense of strength and power via sexual domination and subjugation; hatred; racism; expression of sadistic cruel tendencies, etc)—at other times (but this is rare) there occur true homosexual love affairs.
—J.G., Arizona, 5/24/99

When I first came to prison in 1968 (I had just turned 17 yrs. old . . . ), I was approached by an older prisoner for sex; after I beat him about his head and shoulders with a pipe wrench, he never came near me again.
—J.G., Arizona, 5/24/99

I've known instances where a youngster will come into prison, and a sexual predator (or group of rapists) will attack and repeatedly sodomize (orally & anally) him, and then instruct him, if he wants protection from gang rape, he must become the "bitch" for that group or one member of that group.
—J.G., Arizona, 5/24/99

The victim [of sexual abuse] is (the true charactoristic, irregardless of his size) afraid, intimidated, afraid to fight—sexual abuse is violent sexuality; if you want to remain free of victimization, you must resist violence by violence.
—J.G., Arizona, 5/24/99

I was in a cell with a White guy, they move him and put a Black guy in the cell with me. he said he was trying to help me. this how they get you. the Black read me cause I explain something about myself to him. So he goes out and tell the other guys that I was cool not in a gang nothing. So the other inmates said I was a punk a soft ass. So one day I goes to the day room going to get my medication there was a big Black guy both of them call me to the back of the day room. they were punking me out. I didn't want to fight them they made me call them daddy, made kept repeating it. . . . these things keeps happening to me. . . . these officers and these inmate they take avantige of the weak give them coffee, cigerette to make them do things for them. . . . there was a White guy that took advanteges of me in prison at another facility. . . . I don't no my rights or about the law, so I'm hit everytime I go to prison.
—B.S., Indiana, 6/16/99 (schizophrenic on medication)

I would estimate that 40% rape for control and recognition . . . . Whites will either submit to this new and horrible life of being a sex slave or seek protective custody but in today's prison system it is extremely difficult to seek protection from physical & sexual assaults, so it's kind of as though the administration condones these acts. . . . I had a neighbor who was so racist we would always go hungry because if a white man brought his food or coffee he would throw it on them. He used to talk about his "boys" he had on the pound. White boys. He said he used to only get oral sex from them because he "wasn't gay" (I wanted so bad to tell him if you're pitching or catching you're still playing the game) but that he used to do it because they were white and because they wouldn't fight and he loved to degrade them. He swore he would never ever do that to no black man but instead would beat that other black man into acting like "a man."
—K.M., Florida, 6/18/99 (Puerto Rican inmate)

How to eradicate rape? 1) A very strict & thorough classifying system that will segregate known preditors from potential victims automatically unless a potential victim waives his rights to extra security and unless the known preditor has shown serious signs of amending his aggressive behavorior.
2) Unrelenting and automatic criminal prosecution with maximum sentences imposed. NO EXCEPTIONS!
3) More security. Rapes occur because the lack of observation make it possible. Prisons have too few guards and too many blind spots . . . .
4) Manditory classes for known preditors with extra gain time upon successful completion of course . . . .
4A) Manditory training for employees on how to recognize signs of sexual victimization and how to respond to allegations of rape or threats of rape, as well as viewing video tapes of victims classes, to become more sensitive to the matter.
—K.M., Florida, 6/18/99

Minnesota is a milder less violent prison population than most other systems in our country. In fact the only sexual assault I've witnessed is my own. What I've witnessed, a great deal of, is manipulation & light intimidation. And of course this is typically the new-younger guys being manipulated, by guys who have typically been down for many years.
—C.B., Minnesota, 7/19/99

One case, individual, I'm pretty familiar with is a guy who has served over 20 years, and he is a tough guy. What he has done for years, is gets the young guys in his cell & gets them high & then chokes them unconsious & proceeds to rape them. But as I said in most cases it's manipulation & light intimidation, not forced.
—C.B., Minnesota, 7/19/99

[During one six-month period], I had the orbit of my left eye fractured, and was assaulted by another prisoner with a knife, among other altercations. This was all due to my refusal for sex. My mother has been a prison guard for over 20 yrs in Florida and the other prisoners wanted to "turn me out" to homosexuality to get back at her and the department.
After 6 months of this treatment I requested to be placed in Protective Management (P.M.), and was taken before the special review board where I presented several letters written by other prisoners who were threatening me with violence if I would not "be with them" sexually. The board refused to put me on P.M. . . . I was then placed back in administrative confienment, waiting on an open cell in population. It was then that I realized the violence would not stop. At the end of my mental and emotional endurance, I tried to kill myself with a razor. 40 stitches and 11 days later I was returned to A.M. II where I wouldn't need "protection" because I was locked in a cell 24 hours a day.
6 months later, in 1997, I was returned to population where I promptly requested P.M. once more. I was given the distinct impression that if I tried to pursue the issue I would be put back on A.M. I couldn't stand the thought of being locked away in another cell all my life, so I did the only thing I could do—I found someone to "be with." I determined I'd be better off to willingly have sex with one person, than I would be to face violence and rape by multiple people. The most tragic part to this is that the person I chose to "be with" has AIDS.
. . . . My life is in danger at F.S.P., and I want the public to know this. A place like F.S.P. could not exist, could not do such things without public support. The opposite of compassion is not hatred, it's indifference.
—M.M., Florida, 7/30/99

At night the guards locked themselves in a cage and slept while inmates sexually and physically assaulted others. I made friends with the Mexican gang because I spoke Spanish. They protected me as they comprised the majority of the population. I at times was asked for sexual favors in order to maintain my security. I was never forced into sex physically, but mentally I wasn't capable of saying no, as I feared for my life.

Good post. All that stuff is real and messed up. If I ever have to go to prison I'm just going to act like a complete psychopath and attack people for no reason and chant weird spells out loud and shit until they put me in some special cell 24 hours a day.

RAPE IN PRISON

by Scott L. Anderson

     Prison rape. I can guarantee you that those two words are the first thing that popped into your head when you heard you were on the way to the slammer. There is no way to sugarcoat this issue. You may be raped when you go to prison. I am not trying to scare you. It is a serious, real issue. Here are some facts:
It is estimated that there are over 300,000 instances of prison rape a year.
196,000 are estimated to happen to men in prison
123,000 are estimated to happen to men in county jail.
40,000 are estimated to be committed against boys in either adult prisons or while in juvenile facilities or lock ups.
5000 women are estimated to be raped in prison.
     Remember that these are all estimates. Most rapes are not reported.

     Sexual attacks in prison are considered rape when penetration occurs. It is estimated that inmates are approached with unwanted sexual advances over 80,000 times per day in the United States alone.

     Keep in mind that many experts consider county and local jails to be more likely places for rapes than prisons. There is a reason for this. You are more likely to be raped while in prison if:
You are young.
You come from a middle-class background.
You are white.
You are not street smart or have no gang affiliations.
Physically you are of small stature.
     By the time repeat or career criminals get to prison they have normally made the circuit through foster homes, juvenile lockups and reform schools where rape is very common. So by the time they actually make it to the big time they are well schooled in this fact of prison life and quite often they are the attackers not the attackees.

     This guide is for the person who has never done any kind of time. Do not think that rape will only happen in prison. If you have to go to county jail prior to your trial and while awaiting transfer to prison, a sexual attack is very likely to occur there. This can all depend on the area you live in. If you are in a rural area with a small jail, of course the chances will drop. But if you are in a metro area, Los Angeles County, New York’s Rikers Island, Miami’s Dade, and Chicago’s Cook being among the worst, your chances of being raped are going to skyrocket.

     Especially, and this is not a racist statement, if you are white. Consider that of the total number of estimated prison rapes:
13% involved white inmates raping white inmates
29% involved black inmates raping black inmates.
56% involved black inmates raping white inmates.
     This comes to a grand total of 85% of prison rapes being committed by blacks, with 69% of the victims being white. The rapes of white inmates are normally done by gangs of blacks and somewhat in the open so that other inmates, but not staff, can witness the attacks. The blacks involved are generally in the joint for crimes such as armed robbery or severe assault cases.

     One of the reasons for this situation is that whites lack solidarity while in prison and unlike the population on the outside, are the minority on the inside.

     Scenario #1. A white middle-class man, let’s say a car dealer, is picked up for sale of cocaine, and is locked into a communal cell with four black inmates, all whom have done substantial amounts of time in prison. The white man is of small stature and has no street smarts. The chances of him being raped:. Damn near 100%.

     Scenario #2. Same situation only this time the white is a solid member of a biker gang that has ties to inside the prison walls. He himself has been in several times. Chances of rape in this situation: Practically zero. The black inmates are smart enough to know that they may be able to out muscle this man and rape him, but the long-term ramifications are not worth it. Without even talking to this man, the blacks’ years of experience in prison will give them the sense to leave him alone.

     While I was an officer in Moose Lake/Willow River (Minnesota) prison I worked a unit that held two Native Americans, one black, one Asian, a younger white inmate, and an older seasoned inmate. When it finally came to the attention of the staff, it turned out that the young white inmate had been raped repeatedly over several months by the black and Indian inmates, but not by the Asian or the older inmate. It also turned out that no advances had ever been made toward either of those two. Note that the seasoned inmate did not join in on the rapes, but never tried to stop it either. That is just the way things are in prison. There is no brotherhood of man when you walk inside those gates.

     There is a class system of three groups in prison involving prison sex.

     Group #1: The predators. They are known as jockers, studs, wolves, and pitchers. These inmates will sniff out new victims and will almost always attack in groups. Of the three groups these are the inmates who consider themselves “men.” “Men” in prison have not ever been penetrated or raped; if this is done to them, they immediately lose this status. They never consider themselves homosexuals but some probably are and for their safety will never admit it, just as some of these men have been victims of sexual assault and will never admit it. A number of these inmates also don’t have much of a taste for rape, but do it to protect their own status so they themselves could be turned on.

     Group #2: The jailhouse queens. These inmates actively carry on a female-like existence and will dress as femininely as they can within the regulations of the prison. There is a lower percentage of these inmates in prison and thus are cherished by the jockers. They are referred to in female terms and are called “her” or “she” by both prisoners and staff alike. Quite often these inmates will have somewhat of a permanent relationship with one of the stronger, established wolves, even though it is not uncommon for the wolf to lend his gal out to his buddies to pay off a debt or for some other reason. Other names used for queens are bitches, ladies, and whores. They will often refer to their assholes as “pussies.” I once had a queen tell me that she f**ked like a woman, but fought like a man.

     Group #3. The punks. Also called f**k boys. These inmates are the younger, weaker, normally white inmates who have been “turned out” by the stronger inmates. They are normally assaulted within days of arrival and these attacks will keep up until they either get protection, are locked up in protective custody, or turn queen themselves. The queens normally look down on punks with disdain. Punks are down on the same prison level as child molesters. Often they are sold to other gangs. They have an extremely high suicide rate.

     Suicide rates in prison are estimated to be 15.4 per 100,000 inmates in all the states averaged out, with the exception of California, which has an astronomical 179 per 100,000. Penologists believe that the number one cause of suicide in prison is rape, with AIDS and depression from being in prison being the two runner up reasons.

     AIDS/HIV is six times the national average in prison. When inmates rape, they don’t wear condoms.

     You can always spot a punk in prison. Often they shuffle around like mental patients and will have extremely poor hygiene in an attempt to stave off future attacks. Rarely will they alert staff to what is going on. I approached several of these inmates while I was an officer to offer them help and they never accepted.

     How do first time inmates defend against rape? They will either pay for protection, join a gang, or they can be “sponsored” by a relative or friends before they even get there. But I have seen fish (rookie) inmates so big and f**king tough that no inmate even wanted to think about taking them on.

     If it happens, it will most likely happen in a dorm or shower area. But anyplace will do if it is out of sight of the officers. My advice to you if you are not protected in some way and you are attacked is to FIGHT back as hard and as loud as you can. AIDS is a death sentence, so that’s the biggest reason. The second reason is once you are raped you are considered in prison circles to have lost your manhood. If you find out you are being singled out and do not have protection, I would also consider striking first against one of the main wolves, although return violence is sure to occur. The problem with this is that you are going to wind up in the hole with maybe some time added to your sentence and things may not have changed when you are released out of segregation.

     If you are cornered and things aren’t going your way, some people think that a way to avoid being raped is to tell your attackers that you are HIV positive and have AIDS. This may work as a quick fix but it more than likely will also result in you being severely beaten if not killed. AIDS in prison is a very sensitive issue with both officers and inmates. Security staff aren’t even told who has AIDS, due to privacy rights issues.

     Do Not Be Passive. Stand Your Ground.

     If you are young, small, and white, your chances of being attacked are higher. If you are getting middle-aged, the chances will drop. Don’t even drop your guard though.

     In a minimum facility there is a much smaller chance of rape as inmates don’t want to screw up chances of their release. In maximum joints, the chance is much higher because inmates have longer sentences and less to lose. In medium facilities always remember that a good share of your fellow inmates are former maximum inmates so the chance of rape is always there with them. County jails have a very high number of rapes reported.

     Many officers that you are going to come in contact with think that most inmates are homosexuals and they deserve what is coming to them and they will often turn their backs when they feel a rape is being committed. Officers have been known to allow a rape to go on if they are working in a high-risk facility and think that doing so will help keep the stronger inmates in line. I can tell you for a fact that the number one worry of all corrections staff is that if there is a riot, they are going to get f**ked in the ass, the men that is; the woman really have something to worry about.

     An officer that I know who was working in the Atlanta federal penitentiary in 1987 during the Cuban riot there, told me that every hostage taken in that riot had been raped.

     After you’ve been locked up for a while you are going to get horny. My advice to you is to masturbate. Alone.

     If you decide to get your rocks off and pay some queen to let you screw her, you will not have protection. Remember the AIDS factor. Is it worth it? Even if you decide to just get a blowjob from one of them, you risk the chance of making her “Daddy” jealous and that can open another can of worms.

     Soft-core porn magazines are available in most prisons. Check out the chicks, use your imagination, and jack off in your sock.

     You are trying to survive the joint. Not live in it.

I read one story where a man was falsely convicted of murdering some woman.  When he went to prison they put him with the black people.  He found that the new inmates are placed with the race opposite of theirs.  He was released a few days later because they found that he was innocent.  He sued for a good amount however he never mentioned the rape thing.  I would've cut the tongues out of those perverts.  Or I would've made them believe that I was going to give them 'stuff' down 'there', then bite it off and spit it in their face.

I'm sure if it came to being degraded the evil side would come out...

Simple solution...use a blunt or sharp and dangerous weapon, defend yourself - D batteries tied in a sock, and then another sock over used as a flail is quite effective.

Fight to the death...or die a coward.

Turned Out - Sexual Assault Behind Bars.
Documentary about sexual assault in the American prison system.

Estimations are that 20 percent of all men serving in US prisons have been raped. This film looks at the social system within prisons that allows this violent sexual behavior to occur.

I read one story where a man was falsely convicted of murdering some woman.  When he went to prison they put him with the black people.  He found that the new inmates are placed with the race opposite of theirs. 

This is something they tried to do to me. I was lucky in life that i was not set up to end up like that fellow or worse. So this thread has meaning to me, and i am sure many other innocent people, will also see the meaning to there lifes. People are scum, and this sort of thing is the worst. I will never forget people tried to do this to me, and it will stay with me until the day i die.
