Torture by Americans In Their Prisons

Last night I watch a documentary on the way the Americans treat people in their custody. It was disgusting, shocking and totally abominable. It is hard to believe that a nation that holds dear, law, order, legal rights, security of person etc would condone such behavior.The mind set seems to be don’t do physical torture, things that can show up later in medical reports but to do mind bending torture which is much harder to treat medically than physical torture. They do physical torture as well. An eldely man died from a beating. A younger man was tasered to death in Orange county Mens facility in California. It was not one or two jolts but the guards kept tasering him over and over again for about 10 minutes until he died. This was witnessed by many of the men being held for trial in this facility. These people have not been convicted of anything and yet are treated to the most inhumane treatment.For instance, they are given food that is outdated, the meat in the stale sandwiches is green with the rainbow colors on it. They have very little access to medical treatment even after being beaten by the goon guards who happen to be ex marines with lots of martial arts training, are well over 6 feet tall and can weigh around 280/300 pounds. They beat up on shackled and handcuffed slightly built men. This is sadism and torture as bad as during the Spanish Inquisition. It is more shocking in this day and age as we are supposed to be enlightened people, especially the Americans who brag about their Bill of Rights and Charter of Rights etc. The Americans “talk the talk” but dont “WALK the Walk”.When non Americans are held in this facility they are thrown in with the Hispanics and Chinese gangs who are at constant war and fight and injure each other and other innocent bystanders.The guards have been overheard talking about what they will do if there is a major earthquake or big fire at the Orange County Mens Facility, they have said “they will just start shooting everyone rather than let them out”. This is disgusting barbarism.The U.S. has more people per capita in jail than any other western civilization. With a population of around 240 million people they have about 3 million in jail and holding facilities. That is over 1 % of the population, in comparison China has about 1 million people in jail with a population of over 1 billion. Something is wrong here. With China low on the totem pole for human rights has less poeple in jail than the Americans.I dont hate Americans if Americans should read this, my grand parents were Born in Michigan but left the states around 100 years ago to have a better life elsewhere. I still have many relatives living in Michigan. I pity the Americans as they dont realize that their Rights are slowly being eroded by the Police and so called concerned citizens. Everytime someones rights are taken away not only are my rights gone but so are YOURS.The police everywhere have become so corrupt that they dont care if innocent people are convicted. They just want to expand the jails and police to get all that federal money in their pockets. Jails take more money than they put into education. What is wrong with this country?The idea of putting people in jail for life is awful. No matter the crime except maybe for serial/sadistic killers, everyone should be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel.Recently a man spend four months in jail awaiting trial because he did not have his seatbelt on in his car. He was held at the Orange County Mens Facility. This is nuts. Another was jailed for the same amount of time for a parking ticket. What gives?Unfortunately America around the world is getting hated more and more and that is very sad. They are seen as the bully boys of the world trying to inflict their beliefs on everyone else. Shoving their way into countries they have no business in. Iran and Iraq, there was no weapons of mass destruction. HA! They also facilitated the assasination of one leader of a country in South America.While the States are an interesting country to visit with many lovely vistas and scenery, I would not want to live there with their crazy judicial system. Judges dont do the right things in court because they are afraid they wont get re-elected. They go with the flow rather than do the right thing by law and conscience. They make judgements on how it will go at the polls for them. They mess up and destroy many peoples lives by not following the law, Charter or Rights, Bill of Rights etc etc etc. People have lost repect for the law and due process because of this.They say “God Bless America”, well I say, “Please God, Strighten them out BEFORE you Bless Them.”
