Я в шоке. Это полный ад и садизм, конечно.
Вот про что надо на всех углах говорить

Ничего нового не узнала. Про то, что в тюрьмах творится истинное зло известно уже давно. Жалко Толоконникову, но никак не пойму для себя только: жалко за ее упрямство, или за ее героизм. :(

А к вопросу о рабстве...например, в конституции США вроде как прямо говорится: "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction." То есть, мол, в тюрьме ты вполне себе раб.

The most awful part for me are the comments. Many people are writing that she deserves this.

The really depressing part? It's all too similar to how Americans react to hearing of atrocities at local prisons.
Not to mention Rush Limbaugh, as I recall, suggesting that the Abu Garib abuses were no worse than what one experiences at a fraternity pledge.

Limbaugh is just nuts. I don't take him seriously.

I don't know much about atrocities at local prisons. So I can't judge.

True, I brought up Limbaugh for laughs only.

On local conditions - Economist has done quite a few lengthy articles on it. Overcrowding, free use of solitary confinement - it's pretty bad.

i don't know about local prisons, but Immigration prisons are ... well. We don't even know how bad they are because non-inmates aren't allowed in.

heard a few days ago about a four year old (Emily Ruiz) who was detained at the border (so she wasn't in an Imm. prison) kept from her parents for 14 hours, kept in a cold room for those 14 hours and fed only some cookies the entire time. she then was deported. She was a US citizen, too. Now she's back in the states undergoing PTSD treatment.

This was my initial source:

I am not sure why I am getting all of these comments. Nowhere I argued that US prisons are great.

what do you mean "all of these comments" -- i only sent one, and i wasn't arguing with you. you said you don't know about the atrocities in local prisons, i thought i'd share the most recent shocking thing I know about prisons in US. please forgive my misunderstanding your comment as an invitation to share information about US prisons.

Two from you and one from Masha
In any case, I do know about deportations. The story of the guy published in the New Yorker and other places is well known by now. Unfortunately deportation officers have wrong incentives. But I don't know if the conditions are such that people have to work 16 hours a day and are not allowed to go to the bathroom.

Two from me?? Are you going to count this as a third?
no, no 16 hour days and bathroom breaks. because clearly food deprivation and extreme (cold and hot) temperatures are much much less punishing.

It was weird I was getting comments on the US jails when I never argued that they are great.

Абсолютно ужасно. Я не знаю, как там люди выживают, я б коньки отбросила только от 4х часов сна, не говоря уж про другое. Звучит как концлагеря, и никому нет дела. У большитсва похоже отношение - раз села, то заслужила, и никого не волнует, что у наказание у большинства не соответсвует с виной типа "украла на 3 копейки"

полный неописуемый пиздец is about right. also, somehow am not very surprised. North Korea lite.

The sad part that I'm not surprised either....

они там просто звереют. иначе никак.


and yes, this shit happens in most prisons, but T. is sort-of sacrificing herself by bringing attention to it. and that's a start!
