another important aspect of abu ghraib torture

From the internal Army report, via the Washington Post, then Empire Notes:

Basic Army Doctrine was not widely referenced or utilized to develop the accountability practices throughout the 800th MP Brigade's subordinate units. Daily processing, accountability and detainee care appear to have been made up as the operations developed with reliance on, and guidance from, junior members of the unit who had civilian corrections experience….

So, the prison is amazingly abusive and they get their culture from...members of the unit who had civilian corrections experience? What does that say about US prisons?
