This is just a quick thought...
I don't think any prisons have solitary confinement anymore (that is spoken about)...the SHO (Segregated Housing Unit) pronounced the "shoe"...however
is common in prisons!
Two years in the SHO is excessive still though...but not the dungeons of the old days as solitary confinement!
I hear "solitary confinement"...well death row is solitary confinement in short...but the SHO...just segregated housing...away from the general
population on the yard...might have even been for his own protection...wouldn't want a DUI'er shanked and killed doing a little two year bit!
ETA: Not that it matters...but I should include I did time in NSP (Nevada State Prison)en.wikipedia.org...
before ESP (Ely State Prison)en.wikipedia.org...
Prisoners facing capital punishment are held at Ely State Prison but are sent to Nevada State Prison to carry out the death penalty.
was built, then transfered to NNCC (Northern Nevada Correctional Center)en.wikipedia.org...
then on to HDSP (High Deset State Prison),en.wikipedia.org...
(Nevada) and then to SDCC (Southern Deset
then to WSCC (Warm Springs Correctional Center)! Off
to South Dakota to Yankton, and Springfield! Then to Wyoming to Rawlins State Prison!
Back to Nevada to WSCC (Warm Spring Conservation Camp)!
So I have some prison experinece (13+ years or so...) and solitary is a myth...the days of the dungeon are over...the SHO....sure...happens...but not
like we would imagine!
