aclu: 17 years old, and in solitary

My heart breaks when I read stories like this. From the ACLU: "17... and in solitary".

State-sponsored child abuse and torture of a young person already mentally ill from childhood abuse.

I just cry.

And support the ACLU.

And ask everyone to do the same.

When I see stories like this, L-girl, I despair that humans will ever become civilized.

Yes.

This should be considered impossible by now. Yet here it is.
