sminkypinky: We, the rest of the world, are more disgusted by the US every day. Keeping a man in isolation for a crime he didn't commit. Private prisons run for profit. And when he's a burden because they have to pay for his healthcare, then that's the point they toss him out.
This guy was a scumbag, but the treatment of this person by the US government is reprehensible.
Move along citizen - nothing to see here. Feel fear and behave or it could be you.
I wouldn't set foot in the US if you paid me.


Yeah?

Post your location, please...let's compare.

The conclusion I draw from this is that prison gives you cancer.

guilty or not I don't believe we should do solitary the way we do, its monstrous.
the room is barely enough to lay down in, the light is on all the time, you never see anyone.
I can understand needing to separate some inmates, have a timeout, but this is way overkill and I seriously think people should be up in arms over it. It certainly doesn't rehabilitate someone, or even keep them the same, it just makes them worse.
