The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Eastern Missouri released
its report, /Suffering and Silence: Human Rights Abuse in St. Louis
Correctional Centers/, in March 2009. Since then, over a dozen
correctional officers and two dozen inmates have substantiated physical
abuse, medical neglect, overcrowding, unsanitary conditions, retaliation
against guards who stand up for prisoners, and allegations of cover-ups.
We will hear from the author of the report as well as comments from
inside the corrections system. Please share your experiences of what
you may have seen in St. Louis jails.
