This image shows the huge increase of prisoners in solitary confinement. Although this graph just goes up to the year 2005, there has not been a decrease of prisoners in SHU. It shows how the system don't care about prisoners in those cells they just put a lot of them in there for the littlest reason.
Why do privately-owned prisons exist?
“Yesterday, the Justice Policy Institute (JPI) released a report chronicling the political strategies of private prison companies ‘working to make money through harsh policies and longer sentences”
Private companies have a lot to do with prisoners having long sentences.
Private companies make money out of prisoners.
Prisoners are 21st century slaves because of a 18 cents day pay.
Private prisons depend on private company’s money, so they need to have a lot of prisoners to make them work.

Research Question:
How have the hunger strikes affect inmates?
“Bill ‘Guero’ Sell, 32 was found dead one week ago inside Corcoran State Prison’s Secure-Housing-Unit (SHU)- a solitary confinement cell. Activists say that Sell’s death was a result of his participation in the California hunger strike…”

Solitary Confinement effects prisoners mentally/physically.
Hunger strikes is the only way prisoners get their voices heard.
Prisoners are dying, all they want is to get rid of solitary confinement
