    Dull and uninteresting.

    Give me a break! Prisoner's rights are the greatest perversion of the civil rights movement. What about the victims? I guess they're irrelevant. These men are not arbitrarily imprisoned. They had access to lawyers and the right to a fair trial. That cell looks far more comfortable than a concentration camp.
