But why are we apologizing? It’s the fault of Lafayette Hall, the warden of a North Carolina prison, who allegedly tortured his inmates by forcing them to guzzle bottles of “Exotic Hot Sauce,” purchased from the Internet, after which they would rub it on their genitals.
And that’s the least sadistic of this guy’s weird tortures. In a letter to the U.S. District Court in Greensboro, six inmates from the Sampson Correctional Institution claimed that Hall would also make them do all sorts of humiliating things to entertain the guards, such as stripping nude and simulating sex acts on each other (awful), kissing snakes (…weird), and throwing bunnies into oncoming traffic while working on road crews (OH MY GOD).
Furthermore, the letter continues, those who complied with the requests of the Stanford Prison Experiment were “rewarded with preferential work assignments, food, cigarettes and beer,” according to the Huffington Post.
Hall is currently on paid administrative leave while the Department of Corrections investigates.
