Outlaw the practice of keeping prisoners under the age of 18 in solitary confinement. Subjecting children to solitary confinement is a cruel, unethical form of punishment that has no place in a just prison system.

At the risk of losing friends, I would like to point out that many of the most violent offenders in our country are juveniles. many of of which are gang members. Many of them are as big or bigger than I am (6-02, 200). As is they do not see Juvenile Hall as a punishment. I spent 23 years in law enforcement and invariably found the violent juveniles to be more problem than adults. So, I respectfully disagree.
