Mass Incarceration, Solitary Confinement and Torture: The Case of the Dallas 6!
On April 29, 2010, six courageous African American prisoners in solitary confinement at SCI Dallas engaged in a peaceful protest against the widespread abuse, violence and torture by guards which they had witnessed and endured, and helped to publicly document. The abuse included food starvation, urine and feces in their food, mail tampering and destruction, vicious beatings while electro-shock shields, taxers, fists, tear gas and pepper spray, medical neglect, use of torture chair, death threats and more. For being "whistleblowers" on this abuse, the state have charged these six men with "rioting".
