RAPE IN PRISON
 
by Scott L. Anderson 
 
 Prison rape.
I can guarantee you that those two words are the first thing that popped intoyour head when you heard you were on the way to the slammer. There is no way tosugarcoat this issue. You may be raped when you go to prison. I am not trying to scareyou. It is a serious, real issue. Here are some facts:
 
It is estimated that there are over 300,000 instances of prison rape a year.
 
196,000 are estimated to happen to men in prison
 
123,000 are estimated to happen to men in county jail.
 
40,000 are estimated to be committed against boys in either adult prisons or whilein juvenile facilities or lock ups.
 
5000 women are estimated to be raped in prison.Remember that these are all estimates. Most rapes are not reported.Sexual attacks in prison are considered rape when penetration occurs. It is estimated that
 
inmates are approached with unwanted sexual advances over 80,000 times per day in theUnited States alone.Keep in mind that many experts consider county and local jails to be more likely placesfor rapes than prisons. There is a reason for this. You are more likely to be raped while in prison if:You are young.You come from a middle-class background.You are white.You are not street smart or have no gang affiliations.Physically you are of small stature.By the time repeat or career criminals get to prison they have normally made the circuitthrough foster homes, juvenile lockups and reform schools where rape is very common.So by the time they actually make it to the big time they are well schooled in this fact of  prison life and quite often they are the attackers not the attackees.This guide is for the person who has never done any kind of time. Do not think that rapewill only happen in prison. If you have to go to county jail prior to your trial and whileawaiting transfer to prison, a sexual attack is very likely to occur there. This can alldepend on the area you live in. If you are in a rural area with a small jail, of course thechances will drop. But if you are in a metro area, Los Angeles County, New York’sRikers Island, Miami’s Dade, and Chicago’s Cook being among the worst, your chancesof being raped are going to skyrocket.Especially, and this is not a racist statement, if you are white. Consider that of the totalnumber of estimated prison rapes:
 
13% involved white inmates raping white inmates
 
29% involved black inmates raping black inmates.
 
56% involved black inmates raping white inmates.This comes to a grand total of 85% of prison rapes being committed by blacks, with 69%of the victims being white. The rapes of white inmates are normally done by gangs o blacks and somewhat in the open so that other inmates, but not staff, can witness theattacks. The blacks involved are generally in the joint for crimes such as armed robberyor severe assault cases.One of the reasons for this situation is that whites lack solidarity while in prison andunlike the population on the outside, are the minority on the inside.
 Scenario #1.
A white middle-class man, let’s say a car dealer, is picked up for sale of cocaine, and is locked into a communal cell with four black inmates, all whom have done
 
substantial amounts of time in prison. The white man is of small stature and has no streetsmarts. The chances of him being raped:. Damn near 100%.
 Scenario #2.
Same situation only this time the white is a solid member of a biker gangthat has ties to inside the prison walls. He himself has been in several times. Chances of rape in this situation: Practically zero. The black inmates are smart enough to know thatthey may be able to out muscle this man and rape him, but the long-term ramificationsare not worth it. Without even talking to this man, the blacks’ years of experience in prison will give them the sense to leave him alone.While I was an officer in Moose Lake/Willow River (Minnesota) prison I worked a unitthat held two Native Americans, one black, one Asian, a younger white inmate, and anolder seasoned inmate. When it finally came to the attention of the staff, it turned out thatthe young white inmate had been raped repeatedly over several months by the black andIndian inmates, but not by the Asian or the older inmate. It also turned out that noadvances had ever been made toward either of those two. Note that the seasoned inmatedid not join in on the rapes, but never tried to stop it either. That is just the way things arein prison. There is no brotherhood of man when you walk inside those gates.There is a class system of three groups in prison involving prison sex.
Group #1: The predators.
They are known as jockers, studs, wolves, and pitchers. Theseinmates will sniff out new victims and will almost always attack in groups. Of the threegroups these are the inmates who consider themselves “men.” “Men” in prison have notever been penetrated or raped; if this is done to them, they immediately lose this status.They never consider themselves homosexuals but some probably are and for their safetywill never admit it, just as some of these men have been victims of sexual assault and willnever admit it. A number of these inmates also don’t have much of a taste for rape, but doit to protect their own status so they themselves could be turned on.
Group #2: The jailhouse queens.
These inmates actively carry on a female-like existenceand will dress as femininely as they can within the regulations of the prison. There is alower percentage of these inmates in prison and thus are cherished by the jockers. Theyare referred to in female terms and are called “her” or “she” by both prisoners and staff alike. Quite often these inmates will have somewhat of a permanent relationship with oneof the stronger, established wolves, even though it is not uncommon for the wolf to lendhis gal out to his buddies to pay off a debt or for some other reason. Other names used for queens are bitches, ladies, and whores. They will often refer to their assholes as“pussies.” I once had a queen tell me that she fucked like a woman, but fought like aman.
Group #3. The punks.
Also called fuck boys. These inmates are the younger, weaker,normally white inmates who have been “turned out” by the stronger inmates. They arenormally assaulted within days of arrival and these attacks will keep up until they either get protection, are locked up in protective custody, or turn queen themselves. The queensnormally look down on punks with disdain. Punks are down on the same prison level aschild molesters. Often they are sold to other gangs. They have an extremely high suiciderate.
