I just spoke at UC Irvine with Ms Dolores Canales about prison life and solitary confinement. Ms Dolores brought in the video related to Shane Bauer. Both Dolores and I ( Glenn Langohr ) have both done prison time. I turned 10 years into 8 books about the drug war and prison life and corruption.

Shane Bauer was one of the three American hikers imprisoned in Iran after being apprehended on the Iraqi border in 2009. He spent 26 months in Tehran’s Evin Prison, 4 of them in solitary confinement. In his latest feature for Mother Jones, Shane Bauer writes a powerful piece on his experience of solitary confinement in that Iranian prison:

“There was a window,” I say. I don’t quite know how to tell him what I mean by that answer. “Just having that light come in, seeing the light move across the cell, seeing what time of day it was—” Without those windows, I wouldn’t have had the sound of ravens, the rare breezes, or the drops of rain that I let wash over my face some nights.

The American penal system is rotten in many places, but comparing it to a system that tortures and kills political opponents in its prisons is not helpful for the required debate.
