Another case where the civil rights of adult convicts were violated. Where were our civil rights?
How could civil rights for adults bring charges while they did the same to the boys at FSB? We
were flogged, these were no "spankings" they were as brutal as that which were dealed out to
slaves in the 1800's.....To Florida's Great Shame!
