This shouldn’t be surprising. Look at the psyche profiles of the people you’re hiring and do studies of guard culture. Collect whatever data it is you need to collect to show you what should have been obvious in retrospect.

You hire people with personality disorders and low intelligence to work in detention facilities with psychologically abhorrent conditions and this is what you get. Now go collect the data. Maybe you’ll learn something about human nature.

Being schizophrenic I am almost constantly under attack by one group or another even down to the idiot security guards. Being sixty and having been the victim many times. I could tell you true stories of abuse and torture, the vast majority, by jail officials or police officers who see an opportunity to pull every nasty trick they can get away with on what they perceive to be a an easy target.
