MORATORIUM ON SOLITARY CONFINEMENT

We received a letter from Department of Corrections Commissioner Bruce Lemmons. Although we appreciate this response it does not answer whether Governor Pence will call a moratorium on solitary confinement. Nor does the letter address the impact of international law on Indiana's use of solitary confinement/segregation. Therefore we are still requesting a response from the governor. Your signature on the petition calling for Gov. Pence to execute and executive order calling for a moratorium on Indiana's use of solitary will help us get it. Senator Greg Taylor has committed to requesting a legal opinion from the attorney general concerning international law's impact on Indiana's use of solitary confinement. International law says anyone held in solitary for more than 15 days is being tortured. Please sign the petition. Thanks in advance


 

Subject: CALL FOR MORATORIUM ON SOLITARY CONFINEMENT

 

Hi,

 

I created a petition to Governor Mike Pence which says:

 

"Your signature requests Governor Mike Pence to execute an executive order calling for a moratorium for using solitary confinement for discipline in Indiana Department of Corrections. "

 

Will you sign this petition? Click here:

In other words, the State didn't place Kofi in Restrictive Housing,he put himself there.

Kofi could learn a lot from Melissa Loveless. Even though she was the ring leader who actually wielded the knife, tortured her victim, and burned Shanda alive, Melissa is due to be released in 2020. A little cooperation, trying to work within the system, and a positive attitude goes a long way in these unfortunate circumstances.
