Mental health in solitary
Here's a nice little radio segment from KUT on legislation previewed here to create a task force to study mental health and other issues related to solitary confinement in Texas prisons. Give it a listen. Exoneree Christopher Scott, who spent about a year in solitary during his 13 years in prison for a crime he didn't commit, testified in the Senate committee in favor of the bill.
