  1. Watching this and thinking about going back. It's so much harder out here but when your in there it sucks so much. I hope anyone reading this doesn't ever have to live this way.

  2. I've never understood how this is worse than general population.

    Like, I much prefer a quiet cell away from the stinky, insane, violent nutcases, thank you. I've read enough books to entertain myself in my holodeck for decades.

  3. This solitary is actually most of prison routine. This is America's civilised slavery. Courts irrational reasoning intensifying incarceration, across un-united states alined with next politicians law promises, while authorities pitching tormented soles back into civilisation, yet tangibly accountable. Australia's spineless lawmakers and pollster-politicians are following America's media-molesting of life in every single step. The reprehensible cowardice of Lawmakers and Pollster-Politicians drama-seeking-headlines is identical to Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy.

  4. People think this is a joke but yes you can get thrown in the hole for having too much toilet paper.

    I was in solitary for 2wks but I was completely naked with no clothes also no toilet just a hole in the middle of the floor. No bed just concrete. I was coming off drugs.

  5. This guy danny spent 10 years in solitary and this place is design to break u down, if ur espertualy prepared u well die by committing suicide he was surprised that he got out alive…

  6. What did these people do to end up in prison? Broke the law, in prison you have rules and when you break prison rules, you get prison punishment. What the hell do these lawbreakers think they were gonna get? A cruise????

  7. I would have a huge problem with the noise and banging of other inmates. that would make me panic. Being alone is not too bad for me but the invasion of noise would overwhelm my senses.

  8. I started to think I was a dog, a rabid dog, and started to bark, and wag my tail, I started to foam at the mouth, the walls were closing in on me. After 14 months in those cell's I lost my psyche forever!
