Institutionalised - Jack Sterling TRD

Notice anything strange about this photo? Apart from the fact that there are so many adults / teenagers in a caged run at a puppy factory?

Yep there are no puppies in the pic, ok now look closer.

Do you see any communication going on? This pic was taken by a complete stranger to the dogs, someone they had never met before.

is a term that might be used to explain the lack of communication within this group of desperate and sad animals. It's exercise hour at the state penitentiary, freedom from the slammer for just an hour, so what now? How do I chat & converse with another? How do I laugh & play, how do I relax or even behave.

Here is another. Notice anyone having anything on their face apart from a dazed, institutionalised mask?
