Four men filed a federal lawsuit against Albany County Jail, they are making claims of violent attacks and even sexual assaults.

Four men, who were transferred to the facility last year from New York City's Rikers Island, filed a federal lawsuit in late December claiming they had been taunted, beaten, stomped and sexually assaulted by a swarm of Albany County guards, including having batons and fingers shoved in their rectums by officers searching for contraband. According to the inmates’ accounts, the unprovoked attacks left them bloodied and severely injured.

The men's claims match up with pictures of the inmates with swollen facial features released to the media. Although the jail claims their accounts of suffering severe facial injuries are contradicted by camera footage and photographs that documented their arrival.

The men claim they had been taunted, beaten, stomped and sexually assaulted by a swarm of Albany County guards, including having batons and fingers shoved in their rectums by officers searching for contraband.

This sounds like an episode of Oz or Scared Straight. Ten of those inmates, including three of the men who filed the lawsuit, arrived at the jail with makeshift razor weapons hidden in their rectums.
