Because freedom can't protect itself
My son is in jail, he has been in solitary confinement for almost 10 months, he has mental illness and tried to commit suicide after 1 month in isolation, after he tried to hang himself they further humiliated him by keeping him in the cell with no bedding or cloths or pillow wearing a turtle suit for 5 days after the phychiatrist said he was fine to have his cloths back. I don't understand how in this country my 24 yr old son can be treated worse then an animal, they let him out for 30 minutes every 24 hrs, he has seen outside 3 times in 15 months. Please help, this should never happen to anyone!
