Excerpts......please read and share full article, these actions are cruel and inhumane.

"Robert King still remembers well the dimensions of his cell: 6 x 9 x 12 feet. There was a steel bed and a sink that doubled as a toilet where he would also wash clothes."

"New York state agreed to several changes that would limit the use of solitary confinement for disciplining some groups of inmates, including those under 18 or pregnant women. The agreement stemmed from a class-action lawsuit." http://www.nyclu.org/files/releases/PeoplesvFischer_Complaint_FINAL.pdf
