Callous and Cruel: Use of Force Against Inmates with Mental Disabilities in US Jails and Prisons
"This 127-page report details incidents in which correctional staff have
deluged prisoners with painful chemical sprays, shocked them with
powerful electric stun weapons, and strapped them for days in
restraining chairs or beds. Staff have broken prisoners’ jaws, noses,
ribs; left them with lacerations requiring stitches, second-degree
burns, deep bruises, and damaged internal organs. In some cases, the
force used has led to their death."
