Two female inmates have filed a federal lawsuit against Live Oak County Texas, alleging that between A 2007 and 2010, jailers ran what they described as a “rape camp” in the county jail. The suit also names former jail guards Vincent Aguilar, Israel Charles Jr. and Jaime E. Smith, all of whom are currently serving time for sexual assault. The women describe a culture of sexual abuse and humiliation reminiscent of Abu Ghraib.

According to the complaint, the guards’ actions included “forcing female inmates to repeatedly perform oral sex on male guards, forcing female inmates to repeatedly masturbate the male guards, the male guards masturbating in view of the female inmates, male guards forcing digital penetrative sex acts in the female inmates’, forcing female inmates to engage in sexual sex acts with other female inmates, including but not limited to forcing female inmates to have oral sex with each other, among other things.” The complaint also claims the guards would withhold food and water and take away privileges if the women were uncooperative.

One of the complainants, who was arrested for possession of marijuana, said during her pretrial incarceration, the three guards named in the suit repeatedly raped and humiliated her, telling her she was now their “sex slave”. The women also state in their complaint that “male guards would sometimes force the female inmates to shower in front of them while instructing them to shave their vaginas. In other instances, while detailing their degenerate sexual fantasies, the jailers would pin the girls against a wall, grope their persons, verbally berate them, digitally rape their vagina and/or anus, then force them to perform oral sex.”

As in Abu Ghraib, the guards are alleged to have taken delight in sexually humiliating the women in their charge. “Certain male guards would strip the female inmates of their clothing and provide only shaving cream to conceal their genitalia.” The complaint claims. The women were also forced to have sex with one another while the guards watched, often masturbating to the “show.”

Although the men named in the suit are already serving time, the suit seeks money damages for civil rights violations and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Just when you think the War On Women can’t get any worse.

Seeing as how some of the guards are currently incarcerated for sex crimes, I think there is a good chance these charges are accurate. If so, well I can't really say what I think should be done to everyone involved because the NSA is listening :)

While I don't doubt the historical memory of NCRM readers, in the wider U.S., I wonder how many would react to the headline "a WHAT in Texas?" O_o

I simply do not get why a man would want to stuff his most valued body part into the tooth-lined mouth of an unwilling recipient.

I would remind them that this is a good way to wind up having to urinate sitting down…
