Because that is a long time to be living in a prison where the only sex you get is when you're being bent over your bed by a 6'4" 280lb black guy, and where you have no freedoms and you live constantly stressed out because the guards don't help you when you're getting man handled on a daily basis.
Not that this is a sterotype or anything
, but we have a great difference in deciding who should be put in that enviorment and who shouldn't. Famous people are protected. Who decides who is the weak or frail, able to defend themselves, or just someone forgotten and nobody?
We seem to be totally concerned about 3 people who get waterboarded, and unconcerned in this society who falls victim to that 6'4" 280 pounder, who is allowed to torture someone weaker when they are supose to be in an eviornment of punishment. The death penalty is inhuman but making someone a cellmate of a overpowering rapist isn't?
