    Prison does not reform a person it breaks a manís spirit and it
    often tends to make the person more corrupt and desperate. Why
    is there so much man on man rape in prison where there majority
    of the men are running around in the day shout I am a man and I
    have a wife at home and then in the middle of darkness you are
    participating in a gang rape against another man and you think
    that by beating him to a pulp before you have sex with him makes
    it a heterosexual act but you are wrong you are gay, homosexual
    or a sissy whatever you want to call it you are no longer a
    heterosexual man and who would want a rapist working for them or
    living with them in the same neighborhood?
