This Blog will discuss politics, government, corruption, police, S.I.U., courts, education, min. of attorney general, min. of labour, v.o.i.c.e. and other current and past events of interest to concerned citizens. In the "About me" section to the right and down I have included the names of persons whom I have tremendous respect for.

FOUR YEARS IN SEGREGATION - IN ONTARIO
Some experts believe that segregation is a form of torture. Certainly isolation and deprivation of normal or even abnormal human conversation and interaction is at the least a form of psychological torture. We all hopefully remember the local case in Kitchener of 18 year old Ashley Smith who choked herself to death while guards watched and under orders, did nothing. It was beyond disgraceful that here in Canada criminal charges were not laid and prosecuted against those in charge who permitted that totally unnecessary loss of life and yes torture of a young girl with indefinite isolation and segregation.
In the current case recently described in the Waterloo Region Record, Adam Capay was charged with the murder of a fellow inmate four years ago. He has since been in segregation. The title of the article is "Four years in segregation wrong, says premier". Mr. Capay's segregation has included being held in a plexiglas cell with the lights on 24 hours per day. I wonder here in Ontario if we did that to an animal in the zoo if there wouldn't be an uproar and a scandal. It seems that our provincial counterparts are just as bad as our federal Correctional Services Canada.
