I cant comprehend the 8th ammendment- "The Eighth Amendment(Amendment VIII) of the United States Constitution prohibits the federal government from imposing excessive bail, excessive fines, or cruel and unusual punishment." Some prisoners are being locked in a 8 foot by 10 foot cell for 23 hours a day, with zero human contact especially in Supermax prisons. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/ADX_Florence http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-17663629 "But current and former inmates, lawyers and others familiar with the prison describe it as an infernal environment in which even the design of the cells and the architecture of the prison conspire to render the inmates docile and drive them mad." "A cleaner version of HELL" "There are more mentally ill prisoners than in hospital" old link but I'm certain nothing has changed. http://www.treatmentadvocacycenter.org/storage/documents/final_jails_v_hospitals_study.pdf Clearly this is "cruel and unusual punishment" Why is this left to happen, it is absolutely appalling. NB Those who will post "they are animals, and deserve to be treated as such" please move on and don't bother posting, thank you.
