LA Jail Accused Of Making Inmates Wear “Hot Stuff” Underwear
A Louisiana jail is under investigation after a civil rights group says they make a mockery of suicidal inmates by making them wear underwear inscribed with “Hot Stuff” on the behind.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana says it's unconstitutional for the St. Tammany Parish jail to “humiliate” the disturbed prisoners by making them wear the embarrassing apparel.
Furthermore the ACLU says the jail confines prisoners in cages that are three feet wide, three feet long and seven feet tall, known by inmates as “squirrel cages.”
The cages are significantly smaller than the six feet wide and six feet deep cages required for dogs by a Louisiana code.
The group describes the underwear as “short shorts” with the words “Hot Stuff” written in pen on the butt.
