Cruel and unusual

On the train today was a prison guard in full uniform, presumably going off to work.

He absolutely reeked of some cheap, nasty, toxic-chemical-smelling aftershave. I'm sure he must have bathed in it. Not only were five people overcome by the smell and collapse, but the fumes rising visibly from him were eating away the train walls and windows.

I think it is terrible that prisoners in jail have to suffer the cruel and unusual punishment of smelling that man's aftershave. You wouldn't be that cruel even to Osama bin Laden or Adolf Hitler!
