The Perplexing Prison Rape Controversy

Over at the Daily Dot I take a look at the online controversy over the justice department's new anti-prison rape guidelines. Wait -- why is there an anti-prison rape controversy, exactly?
So, to recap: the justice department under President Obama (a Democrat) passed guidelines to comply with a nine-year-old law passed under President Bush (a Republican), and a list of all senators and congressmen who voted for it back then covers the whole political spectrum. That makes the guidelines a bipartisan or even a non-partisan issue, right?  One where everyone nods and says “Thank you, Captain Obvious” before going on to tackle some controversial issues?

In the real world, we hope so. On Twitter, not even close.

I am so disgusted by the human race sometimes. The people that spew this bile are sick.
