Michigan Prisons Pay $100 Million ‘Cause They Let Lady Prisoners Get Raped

It took 10 years of legal back-and-forth, but the Michigan Department of Corrections is on the hook for $100 million, settling class action charges it allowed some 500 female inmates to be sexually abused. Wasn’t it just last year DOC Director Patricia Caruso was “oppos[ing] national standards being developed to address sexual abuse behind bars, stating that they would require that a ‘disproportionate amount of resources be dedicated to an issue that affects less than 1% of the DOC prison population'”? Why yes, it was.

      Too bad for the laid-off GM workers and their families. 100 million could help others better!

      That’s right, DONTBLAMEME. Who cares if hundreds of women were raped?

      I bet your mother would be the first to volunteer, just to help out the GM workers.

      @Mike: See, now you’ve got me wondering whether it’s logically possible to volunteer for rape…
