    Annual prison rape
    (according to the DOJ)
    http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/...
    4.5%

    So the DOJ are "sexual deviants" fantasizing about prison rape?

    Or maybe Human Rights Watch

      I will add that this is much higher than annaul rate of rape in the U.s. as whole.

      http://www.fbi.gov/...

      (Note that this is an annual figure. Women have a very high chance of being raped in their lifetime, but the chances of being raped in any one year outside prison are much lower than the chances of being raped inside prison).
