Solitary Confinement

David Polizzi

Policy Press

Solitary confinement evokes a manner of human torture that does not need to include the actual presence of another individual to inflict this physical or psychological harm. Its sole intent is to inflict harm and wear down the individual so confined. First it takes away the world and or time, then it takes the human self as well.

Keywords:   solitary confinement, isolation, psychological harm, criminal justice machine, penitentiary
