Two Of Angola 3 Moved Out Of Solitary

After spending decades in 23 hour a day lockdown...

Louisiana - Two men held in solitary confinement in Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola since the 1970s were moved into a maximum-security dormitory with other inmates Monday, Assistant Warden Angie Norwood said today.

Herman Wallace and Albert Woodfox, part of a group known as the Angola 3, have sued the state, claiming they are victims of cruel and unusual punishment for the years they spent in isolation. The two were convicted of killing a prison guard, though their attorneys argue they didn’t commit the crime.

Their move out of solitary confinement came as lawyers for the prisoners and the state are negotiating a settlement in the lawsuit, which is pending in federal court in Baton Rouge.

I will never understand the benefit of long-term solitary confinement. How is someone going to be able to ever hope to experience anything approaching a normal state of mind, or life, after spending years of minimal communication with other human beings? There should be a limit (like 1 week!) on the use of this
technique.
