Steven Pevar, a staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union, in an AOL telephone interview, stated “This is the most violent prison I have ever seen”. The ACLU is currently suing the Idaho State Prison officials due to the level of violence at the Idaho Correctional Facility.
Steven Pevar stated, “it’s as if gangs have taken over the prison, where decisions are being made that seem to be consistent with allowing gangs to strong-arm other prisoners.”
Numerous prisoners have reported to staff that they were beaten up when gang members told the prisoners they had to pay rent to live safely in that housing unit. The guards did nothing about it.
