Written Assignment: Solitary Confinement
Solitary confinement is the segregation of individual inmates from the rest of the population, often in a small and rather dismal environment.

In the past, problem inmates were put in ‘The Box’ – literally a concrete or metal box. Current segregation is less severe, but nevertheless has consequences, especially for the inmate. After reading the rights of inmates under law, including the Constitution and Supreme Court case law, read the opinion article below.

Do you agree with the NYTimes OpEd article The Living Death of Solitary Confinement? Or perhaps you see things from the managerial perspective, the necessity to manage disruptions from recalcitrant offenders.
