"I'm a 36 year old white male. heterosexual. raped by black inmates in
1978, still have nightmares and afraid of one day my mind snapping. The
Texas prison system lacks in professional counselors to talk to and the
psychologist either dont want to talk or want you to take drugs.
After the incident I asked to be put in PC and they refused so I wrote the
FBI, who came to see me but not before I was taken into a room with the
"warden" and threatened if I didn't tell the Feds to forget the whole thing
my life would be made real uncomfortable there. So I blew it off...and I
stabbed one of the black M.F.'s that raped me about 6 times with a pair
of 6" scissors. I wasn't caught and I don't know if he died or what.... I
don't need the added pressures of being labeled a punk."
