  • We'll since you feel its stupid and discrimination, well throw them all in together and see which ones come out alive and in one piece.

    Duh, the idea is to protect them. People in jail are (generally speaking) not the most tolerant people in the world.

  • Wow, so you think we should toss all the gays in with the general population and let them be raped to death by the inmates? I am not trying to attack here, just suggest the other side of the argument.

  • Okay, so now that I have read the story, I get what you are saying and these guards should be disciplined. Sorry for jumping to conclusions...

  • I hate to say it, but its safer for them. I have no issues with homosexuality, but I do recognize that in the prison system some of them will get their asses kicked, or even face gang rape. Many of the men who do rape in prison aren't actually gay, although some are. If it saves one life then I'm all for it.

  • As far as segregation goes I'm afraid jails are one of the places its still a good idea. For the inmates safety! A lot of the most racist, ignorant, homophobic people in America are living in jail. Doesn't make it the safest place on Earth!

  • It's for their own safety. It's a good thing. Segregation is not always about being mean or unfair.
