Authors can use strong language to emotionally control a reader's thoughts, ideas, and responses to his or her work. Most times, they go against the general values of a society, hoping to elicit a strong poignant reaction from their readers. Christian Parenti is no exception. His third section of Lockdown America: Police and Prisons in the Age of Crisis is filled with gut-wrenching and often horrific accounts of prisoner treatment by the guards, lawyers, courts, and the government. Page 187, filled with prison rape stories, pimping deals, and "slaveoracy" is one of those emotionally charged sections.
Rape is a value that affects society as a whole. It causes shame not only to the person raped, but it also shames society as a whole. The entire page describes ghastly ideas that prison administrators have regarding prison (male to male) rape. James Dunn gives perhaps the most horrific exam
