Samantha Hill prayed to God that it would finally end — even if it ended with her death.

It had been almost 10 days since Hill, a transgender woman, was placed in an isolated federal prison cell with the man who would rape her — a member of the Latin Kings gang. In those 10 days, he had physically attacked her and sexually assaulted her multiple times. In a secluded, small special housing unit — typically used for solitary confinement — no one acted on her screams for help.

I read that story too. The title is right, but it all sounds so much like torture. Cruel, inhuman. Maybe sadistic. I don't what else one can say.
