  1. You have got to be kidding me! Count me out. Work one day behind the wall. It’s not like the movies. Take a tour of a real jail. Solitary housing unit (SHU) actually has more benefits than general population (GP), including tablets and phone calls.

  2. Until you work in a prison and have to find ways to deal with the population, don’t judge. Long-term isolation is detrimental, for sure, but sometimes short term does the trick to correct certain undesirable behaviors
