Excellent Interview Video on Solitary from WGBH

By BitcoDavid

The following video comes from Boston’s WGBH TV.

The video presents a number of interesting facts regarding solitary confinement, including that it’s expensive, and poses a public safety threat. We know it’s torture, and we know that it destroys minds and crushes souls – but many argue that prisoners deserve no better. Well, this video provides a counter argument that even the staunchest crime and punishment type, can understand.

Simply that it costs us taxpayers up to 3 times as much to break men in solitary, as it does to house them humanely. Further, since people do occasionally get released from prison, it does society little good to create psychotics – and then send them back to the public.
