Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

  Looking at the New York Times and the find law articles you will find that prisoners are also give the rights which they must be given when in custody. Some of these rights emphasized are: inmates are entitled to human housing; they are supposed to be free. This means they are protected from cruel and  unusual punishments. For example in the 1995, “a federal court in Massachusetts found that inmates' constitutional rights were violated when they were held in a 150-year-old prison that was infested with vermin, fire hazards, and a lack of toilets.” According to these articles the inmates needs to be protected by the law enforcers.
