Administrative segregation, solitary, seg, the cooler, the hole, isolation and reclusion are all names for one thing - solitary confinement. Another word that’s used in reference to solitary confinement is torture. And it’s right...solitary confinement can be torture. Imagine not talking to anyone all day, having absolutely no communication. Imagine spending 23 hours a day in a 57.2 sq foot cell, with only one hour “outside” per day. And if you misbehave you lose your toothpaste. Now imagine being there for a week, two weeks, a month, 6 months, a year or in some cases more. All in constant 24/7 florescent lighting. The mental health effects, the human rights violations and the physical health effects are immense. Therefore solitary confinement should be limited to fifteen days at a time.
