Due Process - SolitaryDUE PROCESS

Sunday, 6/26 at 9:30am and Tuesday, 6/28 at 11:30pm

Solitary: Cruel and Unusual? Imagine you’re in lock down, not just imprisoned, but confined to a space not much bigger than your bathroom for 23 hours a day. Is it cruel and unusual?  Is it torture?  Who ends up in isolation and why?  And what is the mental and emotional impact?  With legislation to reform solitary confinement now pending in New Jersey, those are just some of the questions examined.   In the opening mini-doc, Sandy and Producer Tania Bentley bring us face to face with men who’ve been held in New Jersey’s solitary units – from months to decades – and with corrections officials who insist that solitary in New Jersey no longer exists.

In-studio: Rev. Seth Kaper-Dale of the National Religious Campaign Against Torture; former New York City Corrections Commissioner Martin Horn, and Senior Officer Lance Lopez, president of the state corrections union. Watch previous episodes here
