  •  I merely posited a hypothetical either/or (5+ / 0-)

    as to which delivers the most justice; if we agree the death penalty is barbaric and we agree it is more merciful than solitary, then the continued existence of solitary is a conundrum. (Btw I have seen the "catacombs" under Alcatraz where inmates were kept, literally in dark caves, for months at a time; it seems sunlight is the one thing our species requires but most inmates live out their sentences cut off from sunlight and from the most elemental pleasures of nature)
    Also in the discussion, I have not seen mention of the problem of institutionalization in the comments
