Women’s prison – A federal investigation finding “rampant” sexual misconduct and abuse of inmates at the Topeka Correctional Facility for women shamed the state. In response, officials now say they have taken the necessary actions to prevent the problems from recurring. The changes include additional staffing, increasing the number of security cameras from 250 to 350; providing training to staff, volunteers and inmates; and hiring a prison rape elimination act coordinator. State officials must continue to work with the Justice Department to ensure that sexual abuse and other problems do not recur. A civilized society expects its government to fairly and humanely punish lawbreakers. Anything less must not be tolerated.
