Doingtime2's curator insight, July 22, 2013 6:03 AM

As night falls and the bus gets closer to Los Angeles, Modjeski is talking to her children. There is laughter and there is love, an otherwise normal family.She will continue her advocacy to end solitary confinement, though she has promised her husband that it will not consume her life. Nor does she want this campaign to rob her children of their childhood. But it is her love for her husband, her caged love, that pushes her forward despite the darkness and void in her life.

“I’m not going to leave him because of where he is at,” she says. “It makes it harder, but these guys need to be loved too, and they need to be able to give love so they stay human.”

Seth Dinkel's comment, July 28, 2013 2:43 AM
Some people view solitary confinement to be an inhumane treatment for criminals on death row. However, we must take into account and respect the victims whose lives they ended. It costs a great deal of money to hold a prisoner in solitary confinement until the day they are sentenced to die. However, it is money well spent that serves as a deterring effect on those who consider committing grievous crimes. I am certain that the families of the victims will have a greater peace of mind knowing the inmate is being held responsible and dealt proper justice.

Florida sued by U.S. government for 'segregating' disabled children


Via Doingtime2

Doingtime2's curator insight, July 23, 2013 8:10 AM

The lawsuit, seeking compensatory damages for the affected children, said they could have been treated in their homes or other community-based settings, but the state failed to provide access to the necessary services to make that possible.
The Justice Department said it had met with Florida officials on numerous occasions since late last year to resolve the alleged ADA violations previously highlighted in a so-called findings letter.
But it said "serious, systemic and ongoing" violations continued in the state, due to a lack of sufficient community-based alternatives to care for disabled children in nursing facilities.
In some cases, Florida health officials had left children in nursing homes for years before the children even got the screening needed to evaluate whether they required institutional treatment, the Justice Department said.
"The ADA requires public entities to ensure that individuals with disabilities are provided services in the most integrated setting appropriate to their needs," the DOJ said.
