Solitary Confinment is Torture

In an issue of Rolling Stone magazine from last month, Jeff Tietz gave a raw look inside the use of Solitary Confinement within the US prison system.  Once saved for the most violent offenders, it's use is now common place as punishment for the mildest infractions. Even worse, it is used to make its victims willing to do or say anything to make it stop.

Sadly, the stories from this article sound all to familiar. 

Due to copyright subscriptions, I am unable to publish the article in its entirety. Please take a moment to borrow a copy or purchase a digital copy to read what REALLY happens in solitary confinement.  It is one of our nation's "dirty little secrets" that is finally being exposed.
