Solitary confinement is a form of torture used by totalitarian regimes and a form of imprisonment to isolate dangerous criminals by Western civilization.

In the United States, an estimated 80,000 convicted criminals are held in solitary confinement.


As one critic explains:

The practice of placing incarcerated individuals in solitary confinement dates back to the 1820s in America when it was thought that isolating individuals in prison would help with their rehabilitation.[1]
