Isolation as punishment is an issue commonly shown in OITNB. Sending inmates to SHU (Solitary Housing Unit) does not deal with the issue behind inmate’s misbehavior, but instead isolates them and ignores any issues behind these unwanted behaviors. Solitary confinement can lead to aggravation of inmates pre-existing conditions (such as mental health.) The realities of solitary confinement are shown from the perspective of three very different inmates all who do not seemingly benefit from the exposure to extreme isolation. SHU barely offers humane living conditions with small, never dark, concrete rooms consisting of only a bed and a toilet.

The Stanford Prisoner Experiment Review PSYC 1111 – University of the People The Stanford Prison Experiment was an infamous psychological experiment conducted in the early 1970s by Dr. Philip Zimbardo. He sought to find an explanation for the dehumanizing, deplorable conditions found in many prisons. Psychological theories at the time were based on a dispositional hypothesis in which it was the natural disposition of the guards and prisoners from before they even entered the environment that lead to the behaviours that caused these poor conditions. This experiment was designed to challenge these theories by removing the possible effects of disposition while emulating as closely as possible all other aspects of a prison environment. The only hypothesis proposed was merely that the assignment of a ‘guard’ or ‘prisoner’ role would result in significantly different behaviours, emotions, and attitudes.

Depending on the infraction committed, the prison guards would often drop snakes and scorpions down the shaft onto the prisoners. The prison rules consisted of some of the following restrictions: Prisoners shall not in any way deface the walls of their cell. At the ringing of the morning bell, every prisoner will turn out, dress.make up his bed neatly, and be ready for marching out.

Meursault’s home emphasizes his lack of intention to improve life for himself. Meursault’s neighborhood contributes to showing how he act in the face of other people and their lives. He experiences what other people do in their daily lives; however, he isolates himself from these activities as he sees no point in participating. The prison setting emphasizes the effects of his beliefs and what happens when he abides his life by his own principles. The prison causes Meursault to become fully isolated from society.
A few hours later a few prisoners retaliated and blocked themselves into their cells. It would appear that the prisoners got tired of the harassment and therefore acted out. The guards took back control of the situation and detained the so called ringleaders. The agitators were placed in solitary confinement and shortly after the prisoners’ behavior changed dramatically. One prisoner became absolutely hostile and started screaming uncontrollable.
