152. Nobody has proposed a viable alternative that I've seen.
Edited on Tue Dec-12-06 03:38 PM by Xithras
I's all well and good to complain about the "torture" of being isolated, but arguing for its end neglects one important issue. How else do you isolate people who would rather slit your throat than look at you? How else do you isolate terrorists who view prison as a recruiting opportunity?

There are people in supermax prisons today because they routinely killed other prisoners even after they were incarcerated. Other than isolation, what should be done with them?
