“Baby Shark” used as a method of torture. Surprised?

If you end up in jail Oklahoma, don’t expect to be a cushy experience. Take the case of inmates at the Oklahoma County Jail who were forced to listen to this at high volume for hours on end. They were chained to the wall and forced to stand the entire time.

From the Oklahoman newspaper:

At least four inmates were subjected to the “inhuman” discipline in an attorney visitation room of the jail last November and December, according to the charge. The inmates was forced to stand the entire time, hands cuffed behind them and secured to the wall, the investigation found.

Two detention officers have been charged with cruelty to a prisoner and conspiracy. Unfortunately, such a thing is not a felony; it’s only a misdemeanour in Oklahoma.
