Subtitle: Cruel and Unusual Punishment. Guests Burke Butler and Jason Glenn, Ph.D., discuss what "administrative segregation" means in the state of Texas. Remember: Prisoners are human beings. If a person treated animals like this, they would likely be subject to arrest and criminal charges in court leading to at least fines, and possibly jail time themselves. Why is our "justice" system exempt?
Dr. Glenn is at utmb.edu/imh . Ms. Butler works with texascivilrightsproject.org in the Houston region. Our host Brian Harrison is also a lawyer.
