Four San Francisco County jail prison guards were put on leave Thursday after it was revealed they had been forcing inmates to fight one another as they bet on the fights. They would reward the inmates with a hamburger if they won and would threaten them with pepper spray and violence if they did not comply.

San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi went on record saying, “I can only describe this as an outrageously sadistic scenario that sounds like it’s out of "Game of Thrones."”

Of the four prison guards, one allegedly had been accused of sexually assaulting inmates in 2006. The guards told the inmates not to seek medical attention after the fights and if they did, to say they fell from their bunks.

May God have mercy on us all.
