Torture and Cruelty by US Officials

The report begins by addressing the crucial issue of lack of accountability and appropriate punishment for perpetrators of torture in the U.S. It details methods of torture by law enforcement, including prolonged solitary confinements, routine sexual abuse of prisoners, denial of adequate medical care to inmates, torturing confessions out of innocent suspects, and the use of electroshock devices on citizens regardless of age or gender.
