New “Solitary Watch” Website responds to AP article about Angola Prison

James Ridgeway has written another excellent article about Angola Prison. It is featured at the new Solitary Watch News site that is part of an emerging project called Solitary Watch, an innovative public web site aimed at bringing this issue out of the shadows and into the light of the public square.


The mission of Solitary Watch is to provide the public—as well as practicing attorneys, legal scholars, law enforcement and corrections officers, policymakers, educators, advocates, and prisoners–with the first comprehensive source of information on solitary confinement in the United States. Please help spread the word about this important new website!
