Inhumanity in our own backyard,

What is outraged about violation of human rights in other countries but not the inhumanity in our own back yard!
The daily bread In juvenile facilities and US prisons is:
1) inhumane conditions.
2) isolation often lasting years, use of torture devices, sexual assault, brutality and more.
3) on any given day, more than 80,000 are locked in solitary. Even more in immigrant detention centers and juvenile facilities.
This month is Torture Awareness Month.  Urge your state and federal lawmakers to end isolation and other forms of "no touch" torture in US prisons.
 Please read the entire article, it is truly shocking.
