Disobeying an Order Can Land You in the ‘SHU’ – There is NO way to know the truth about why people are put in isolation cells! kra

Ken’s Comments:   This study does show that many people are in isolation cells who do not need to be there: nonviolent petty infractions. But because officials lie so much, make up fictitious charges, etc., there is no way to know really how many others should not be in isolation. Based on my observations from 5 years in prison, in isolation for 1,510 days in several different buildings, and the thousands of articles I have read...

Ken’s Comments:   How many articles have I written about this? At least 100. And the insane – and insanely costly – neglect of our mentally ill goes on. These people are among the least capable of speaking out for help, and those imprisoned mostly have committed minor crimes. America’s neglect of the mentally ill costs YOU, the taxpayers, about $444 Billion every year; the problem is a major American disgrace. See...

Ken’s Comments:   A really stupid move. ALL studies show that education is the best way to reduce recidivism = reduce crime! Our idiot politicians want to spend tens of thousands of dollars a year keeping people locked up with mandatory minimum sentences [which do NOT reduce crime!] while cutting funds for what really works! it’s all part of the “tough on crime” failed bullshit policies of the past.    ...

Ken’s Comments: Good for The Roderick and Solange Mac­Arthur Justice Center! When prison officials did what they love to do: stall, delay, ignore, stonewall … they forced them to provide the information! Just read a few articles under “prison abuse” to realize that, “any way you slice it”, private prisons are an abomination.   Excerpts from the Article:   The Roderick and Solange Mac­Arthur Justice...
