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.
