I just read this story on the Atlanta Journal Constitution site. How can anyone say this is acceptable? If we did this to detainees or GITMO prisoners, human rights people would be all over this. Instead, because it's US people in prison, it is allowed to go on. How can we lecture & sanction other countries for their human rights violations when we aren't always better?

I hope people will comment & write in so the story doesn't fade away with nothing done to correct the problem.

I just sent a link to the story in a PM to @GAOmbudsman.

If I lived in Georgia like you do I would already have sent a very clear letter to my state legislator.

GA people, type in your address on this page and it will tell you who represents you in state government.

Things like this go on because everyone thinks nobody cares. That, that can be changed.
