Description

In a five-month investigation, “Cruel and Unusual?,” the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism's Bill Lueders identified 40 alleged instances of physical or severe psychological abuse by guards at one state prison, Waupun Correctional Institution. All of the incidents allegedly involved prisoners in the so-called segregation unit. Two-thirds of them involved a single correctional officer.
