Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have never seen such an atrocity in life, that those poor SICK inmates had to endure ! This was a small scale holocaust, for the Mentally Ill population.

The doctor & guards were as sick as the inmates. I was involved with the jails at those times. I did counseling for mentally ill then and still do now. But that was like the Zimbardo experiment, only worse ! Thank-you so much, have been trying to track that down for 40 years now ! Antonette Royce RNC BS CS

Format: Paperback
Weisman's brilliant documentation of what really happens behind jail bars makes people question the system and answer to obscentities.
