Congress Finds BOP Fails to Adequately Address Misconduct in Federal Prisons

Misconduct in Federal Prisons Is Tolerated or Ignored, Congressional Report Says: (“Misconduct in the federal prison system is widespread, tolerated and routinely covered up or ignored, including among senior officials, according to a congressional report released this week. * * * The report, by the House Subcommittee on National Security, found that a permissive environment in the Bureau of Prisons had often made lower-ranking employees targets of abuse—including sexual assault and harassment—by prisoners and staff members. * * * Inmates can easily exploit that culture of permissiveness, the report said. ‘If they know that an employee will get little support from management if harassed, that employee becomes a target.’”)
