Browder endured over 700 hundred days in solitary ultimately causing his mental health to severely decline (Gonnerman, 2014).

Solitary, they maintain, is a correction officer’s last resort against violent inmates, who pose a danger both to themselves and to others. Mike Powers, a corrections officer in Northern New York, and the head of the state prison guard union, discussed the need for solitary in a recent interview with North County Public Radio.
