Well, after watching "Breach" (about FBI employee, who is a convicted spy, now at ADX
Florence, supermax), I started reading up on Supermax prisons.
60 Minutes story on it
What do you think of them? I know a lot of people are against supermax prisons - saying its torture. Now really, if you have murdered other people in federal prisons, I think that you should be sent to a facility like ADX
. 23 hours a day in solitary confinement will give you a hell of a lot of time to consider your actions. However, that wasn't enough for one guy who was interviewed in the 60 minutes video - he went and robbed a bank when released, and got sent to a different prison in Washington State.
Certainly, if the government was sending people here on a whim, I think that would be over the top. But for cases such as terrorists (pretty much committing genocide on the smaller scale that they can), and murders (especially murdering prison staff) while in prison, this is justified.
