Far too often, the guys in here have short fuses due to their stressful situation indealing with deportation. Therefore, any little thing can trigger a confrontation. Sadly, the only way they know how to deal with confrontations is through physical violence. The result is always a lose-lose situation.
The cycle of violence often continues for those men who haven't learned alternatives to violence. Whenever they end up after they leave here, they will create victims of their violence.
There is a dire need for Alternative to Violence programs in all institutions where people are confined.
