Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You

Prison Rape. Merely an American Penitentiary System Phenomenon?

Good morning people! It’s a new week, and with it comes fresh philosophical adventures.

Whenever the topic of prison rape comes up, it’s often parleyd as a joking matter.

It’s a laughable symptom of mass confinement; it’s not gay when it happens in prison; it’s exclusively an inmate thing.

But after a little bit of thinking, you realize that this is a product of decades of TV brainwashing. With shows like Orange is the New Black (or the Game of Thrones), and the large number of people who watch them, it’s no wonder that people are finding prisons a little glamorous, or that violence is accepted as a mainstream subculture thing.

It’s a product of the saying that ‘might makes right.’

That saying, succinct as it may be; is too broad, and too undefined.  We always forget that people have a tendency to apply idioms to actions as a means to justify self initiated stupidity.

Don’t worry though, nobody seems interested in fixing it.

High School Students Arrested for Alleged Sexual Abuse Hazing

A lawsuit alleges students were sexually abused as part of a football “initiation” ritual.

Since March, 13 students at La Vernia High School in Texas have been arrested in connection with a hazing scandal that affected at least 10 students, who were allegedly sodomized as part of their “initiation” to the football team.

According to the Washington Post, seven juvenile and six adult students have been arrested in connection with hazing new football teammates by sexually abusing them with items including Coke and Gatorade bottles, flashlights and more. These arrests come after a report detailed the alleged hazing in March. While the Post reports at least 10 students were subject to this “hazing,” a federal civil rights lawsuit filed against the school district alleges that’s “but a fraction of the students who have been physically and sexually assaulted” in these hazing rituals. The lawsuit also alleges the school district allowed a “persistent rape culture” in the football program.

“The teams’ coaches have sanctioned these rituals, while other school officials, including La Vernia ISD and the School’s principal, athletic director, and coaches, turned a blind eye toward the abuse, even after the abuse was reported to them,” the lawsuit says.

The lawsuit reportedly details incidents of assault, including a 15-year-old student being attacked and pinned down by three upperclassmen and assaulted with a Gatorade bottle. After that alleged attack, the schools former athletic director Brandon Layne reportedly said he was aware of the hazing and that it needed to end. The suit says the assault was not reported to authorities.

Previous reports also detailed the alleged assault.

“Kids were holding them down in the locker rooms, there was a lookout at the door watching for coaches not to come,” said one mother who says her son was assaulted in an interview with Fox San Antonio. “They hold them down and stick various items up their rectum…including Coke bottles, deodorant bottles, steel pipes, baseball bats, and broomsticks.”

Police are investigating these reports, and now suspect the incidents may date back as far as 2014. But J.K. Ivey, the attorney who filed the suit, said the abuse may have existed for more than a decade, according to the Post.
