this ain’t livin’: Segregating HIV+ Prisoners: An Outdated Practice

this ain’t livin’: Segregating HIV+ Prisoners: An Outdated Practice:

Notably, prisoners even wear special armbands to make sure everyone knows they live in the segregated dormitory for HIV+ prisoners, singling them out even more. Under these circumstances, it’s hard to believe that prison officials can keep straight faces when they claim that this is reasonable or fair; it’s not just discriminatory but outright hateful, and it violates all pretense of medical privacy. The fact that it has persisted for so long illustrates the lack of interest the general public has in prison issues and the human rights of people trapped in the prison system.
