A new Rhode Island state commission will study solitary confinement. Do you think prisons should use solitary confinement?
What others saidBackShape the Debate
The Penality for their crime has already been imposed. Solitary confinement should only be imposed on prisoners who are a constant threat to other inmates & still should not be excessive unless the situation is thoroughly looked into & perhaps a board voted on the decision.

It is cruel and unusual punishment and impairs prisoners mental health sometimes permanently.

Solitary confinement is known to be abusive and to case mental illness. It should not be used.
