The disgusting prison rape trope

This is another one that really disturbs me: in show after show, I see cops smugly warning some suspect, "Well, if you don't cooperate, 'Big Joe' is going to be having his way with you soon in prison."

Someone guilty of some crime should suffer the punishment the legal system prescribes for his crime. He should not also suffer some additional violation of his person by other criminals.

The fact that cops on recent TV shows gleefully threaten a suspect with prison rape is absolutely revolting.

  1. This is hardly confined to tv, but a routine tactic for crime deterrence. Listen to any DARE program.
