it's not our finest hour surely to take pleasure in knowing that such an act of violence has been committed
Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.

Fair enough, but we're also discussing the larger issue at hand, from an emotional point of view I can't exactly blame you for for not losing sleep over this particular gentleman, but the issue goes further than that.Am I going to lose sleep over a convicted child molester getting ass raped in prison? Definitely not.
Again though, the point of prison is not only a deterrent but it also has to effectively rehabilitate certain folk to stop re-offense once their prescribed punishment is over, this doesn't happen as often because not only can a prison sentence leave you unemployable but American prisons make a small time criminal who might not re-offend under better circumstances, re-offend, often because there's no other options.If prison is a cakewalk, then it defeats the whole purpose of putting someone in prison, because no, locking up someone where they could actually enjoy themselves kills the deterrent factor that prison is supposed to have.
And again the fundamental point is if you make Prison rape acceptable, then you by extension include it as part of the punishment, which makes it cruel and unusual punishment which is against the constitution.
So just remember that the next time you want to bitch about how people in government are violating the constitution when you can't even maintain any sort of line on it yourself.
