|The US state of California must make substantial changes to their prison isolation units and halt the inhuman suffering of thousands of prisoners, Amnesty International said in a new report out today. "The Edge of Endurance: Conditions in California's Security Housing Units" is based on exclusive access gained by Amnesty International to isolation units in California and explores the conditions of confinement endured by more than 3,000 prisoners - including 78 who have spent in excess of two decades in isolation.|
