I recently discovered the website listed below. I signed up for alerts and emails because it has a lot of valuable information. If your loved one is in solitary, has been in solitary, or is going to solitary please do go to this site. (Most inmates will get there sooner or later.) My son spent almost three long years locked down in the North Las Vegas Detention Center. During those years he was inhumanely treated and stayed there because someone he was affiliated with committed a crime there. He had nothing to do with it, but spent all that time in solitary anyway. When I visited (allowed visits were once per month – no contact by monitor) was the only time he was let out except for showers every three days and exercise one hour per day in a cage. The time of the exercise was at the guards convenience and could even be in the middle of the night.
Solitary Watch is a web-based project aimed at bringing the widespread use of solitary confinement out of the shadows and into the light of the public square. Our mission is to provide the public—as well as practicing attorneys, legal scholars, law enforcement and corrections officers, policymakers, educators, advocates, people in prison and their families—with the first centralized source of unfolding news, original reporting, firsthand accounts, and background research on solitary confinement in the United States.
