From the Deseret News:

“Within a few years, the official rape prevention rules in every correctional facility in the country will be a lot better than they were a decade ago,” wrote Eli Lehrer, vice president of The Heartland Institute, in a Huffington Post editorial. “And, most likely, sexual assault will become less common behind bars as a result.”

But he argued that the problem won’t go away until the country starts taking prison rape seriously.

“And there’s precious little sign of that happening,” he wrote. “How many other serious violent crimes, after all, are fodder for sitcom punch-lines and late night talk show hosts?”
