We live in an era in which the United States has increased and become addicted to incarceration. Is it so very necessary or is it a byproduct of profit centered prison corporations, guard and service worker unions, suppliers....etc? Part of prison, for years, has been the use of isolation cells.
I'd rather not debate the necessity of isolation cells. I'm sure there are pro's and con's for it all, and I just don't have the information. What I'd like to share with you is this vid about the effects of isolation on the 'normal well adjusted' person in only 48 hours. What greater deterioration could we expect on those who are struggling with things a bit more, such as someone who experienced years of abuses?
As you watch this video, ask yourself this one question: If a person who has been subjected to this is one day to return to civilization, what type of person will he/she be?
I cannon get this vid to post. I think I saved it wrong. Here is the link:
