Paul Manafort Kept in Solitary Confinement for 23 Hours a Day

Post by 1989TransAm » Fri Jul 06, 2018 2:41 pm

For what? What has he been convicted of? This is ridiculous.

"Newly released court documents explain that President Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort is being kept in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day ahead of his July 25 trial, citing that his safety cannot be guaranteed otherwise while in prison.

The big picture: Manafort's bail was revoked by a judge, and his legal team is currently appealing that decision arguing that being imprisoned in such a manner at a facility two hours away from his legal team is hampering his ability to defend himself. Manafort has been indicted on charges including money laundering and bank fraud."

"Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves."

Not sure what the beef is here, Manafort is being abused, or the system abuses the the solitary confinement option?

Hello, sounds like you only care when it's your bud in the slammer, its wrong, its use is abused, it dehumanizes the incarcerated, and as long as few hear about it, "its not my Problem" or "you shouldn't have broken the law", etc is the norm.

Only care when it effects you personally style of winning. [-X

Edit: Since when did the government start "guaranteeing" anyone's safety?

Paul Manafort has not been convicted of a crime in a court of law yet he is kept in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day. Amazing that some of you on this board do not have a problem with that. #-o [-X

I think I have shared my concern already, and seen no objections.
So lets be clear, if convicted you are OK with it?

I personally would be all for him being put in the regular population.
Probably a lot of soap needs picked up there?

No, I am not OK with this. solitary confinement is for extreme cases. Paul Manafort is far from being on of those cases.

Define "extreme".

The problem is, extreme is often defined by most people's viewpoint to further their own agenda.
People have been held in solitary confinement for years at a time, and that causes gross mental harm, and is outright cruel.
It is an abused confinement method by a lazy prison and suspect psychopathic undersized, underfunded under-supervised and under-trained staff.
I'd like to see it severely restricted and reviewed, including here.
