Dr Jessica McCarrick, a senior lecturer in Counselling Psychology at Teeside University, carried out a study with male victims of abuse. Men are often treated with suspicion by the criminal justice system, she told the Telegraph.

We’ve all been there – someone tags you in a hideous photo and you face either awkwardly detagging, or (if it’s really bad) even more awkwardly asking them to take it down.

Fugitive Donald ‘Chip’ Pugh had the same problem. Sort of.

He wrote: ‘Here is a better photo that one is terrible.’

The LPD obliged, posting the new photo with the status: ‘This photo was sent to… Read the full story

When a prisoner accused an officer of abuse, the judge responded by mocking him with a poem.

Darek Lathan alleged that, while serving a 17-month sentence at an Ohio prison for vandalism, an officer made him soil himself.

He said that although he was suffering from a cold and diarrhoea as a result of the prison’s cold showers, the prison officer on duty wouldn’t let him leave the line for recreation to go to the bathroom. As a result, he lost control of his bowels in front of the other inmates.
