Bishop Richard Garcia at the recent conference of California Catholic Bishops stated that:
“We stand opposed to this treatment because it is not restorative. Placing humans in isolation in a Secure Housing Unit (SHU) has no restorative or rehabilitative purpose. International human rights standards consider more than 15 days in isolation to be torture. The world is watching California and the United States. No one affected by crime is helped when a human being is subjected to this inhumane form of punishment. It is time for change now.”
Thank you Bishop Richard Garcia. The world is definately watching as is God and no one is exempt from karma.
