    These prisoners should at least have the option of euthanasia.
    Besides, what hope do they have if they ever get out? It's not like they'll get a job or a pension.
    In fairness, this extreme solitary is AN alternative, not THE ONLY alternative. But yeah, this has got to be cruel and unusual.

    Seems stupid to me. "Let's stick these dudes who are already mentally/emotionally off in solitary confinement for 4 decades and then set them free! Surely to return as civilized, well-behaving individuals!"

    Logic fail?

    I agree with @swordpath. Logic fail.

    I could do it. I couldn't account for my mental state though. Possibly come out a bug shit crazy mystic. If I had access to pen and paper, I'd write copious amounts....and I think stay sane as you possible could in those circumstances.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.
