    175k is just the start. They haven't started assessing the punitive damages yet.

    Hahaha no but you hit the nail on the head. Yeah this nonsense NEVER works, it's been proven it doesn't work. Human beings don't act on experiences they don't have, having a bunch of inmates scream in their face for extra rec time doesn't change that.

    If this happened everybody in charge of this stupid nonsense should be liable.

    Remember Trump has never done anything selfless in his life, and without others to do for him, he is lost. He sure as hell doesn't have enough integrity to take any responsibility.

    My guess is that it was one of those percentage things. The jury probably said he was 80% culpable and the state was 20% and that's why it's so low.

    How did he prove it actually happened?
    This is pretty fascinating.

    Seems a tad late on the news if this happened almost 50 years ago.

    For most people, no, but for him? I'm going to take a wild guess and say he never got in trouble with the law again.

    Did they award him 175k in 1970's money?

    P.S. Also never saw that Boondoks before, but it look awesome, going to find it and binge watch it.

    You see the old man in the clip that picks something up off the floor?

    Based a real-life guy. See 5:40.

    I don't understand why he was awarded anything. Don't want to get beaten up and prison raped, don't break and enter. Was he mind controlled to commit a crime? No? ok then. Guard told him exactly the right thing. You shouldn't need to be "scared strait" to know breaking in and robbing is wrong.

    What the fuck am I reading? Of course he should be compensated for it. Getting beaten up or raped by inmates is not the penalty the state imposed. They should not allow any harm to prisoners/offenders beyond what the state has sanctioned.

    These programs have been consistently proven to be utterly ineffective, they're basically just torture homophobic parents inflict on their children.

    Utterly despicable.

    Also ridiculous.

    And how did they conclude he was actually raped? Have there been recordings from then? Any witness who testified? A doctor's record? And why sue 40 years later?
    Bet he was lying for the attention.

    Men all do it, the sluts.
