They’re so super

The ACLU’s Blog of Rights on Supermax Prisons:

This week the European Court of Human Rights temporarily halted the extradition of four terrorism suspects from the United Kingdom to the United States. The court concluded that the applicants had raised a serious question whether their possible long-term incarceration in a U.S. “supermax” prison would violate Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which prohibits “torture or … inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.”

Europe has a Human Rights Court? We don’t even have human rights!

Follow the link if you want to read some truly awful shit about supermax prisons. The fact that supermax prisons still exist when so much research has been done on how damaging solitary confinement is disgusts me.
