Unethical Research On Inmates

Decent Essays
Unethical Research Scientists are conducting a research project that involves providing violent inmates with experimental medication in efforts of reducing aggression and agitation. The inmates give their consent to participate in the experiment, but potentially harmful side effects are withheld from the inmates and prison staff. The side effects include increased aggression, delusions, and paranoia. Several inmates experience the side effects and cause harm to themselves and others. Regardless, the experiment continues with recurring incidents of inmates harming themselves and others. Researchers speak to participating inmates several days a week, with researchers documenting information on how the experimental drug is affecting the inmates.
