BOXED IN
The True Cost of Extreme Isolation in New York’s Prisons
 A Report by the New York Civil Liberties Union
 
“I guess they forget people make mistakeswhich land them in jail & the fact that wewas living a normal life, too, before our conviction. It’s sad the things we have to gothrough just to make it home in one piece. . .
“A fair criticism that can be made iswhether or not we’re placing the right inmate in disciplinary segregationand are we keeping them there longer than necessary.”
Brian Fischer, Commissioner, New York State Departmentof Corrections and Community Supervision,
 Albany TimesUnion
, August 2012
. . . I still be having a lot of mood swingslately, I don’t be meaning any harm I just bemad at my situation . . .
 
. . . It gets real lonely in here, especially if  you don’t have family to communicate with or send you books. I’m grateful to have that, but after you be in this cell for so long it hard tokeep your mind outside of these four walls, all you have is memories.”
Donell, incarcerated at Upstate Correctional Facility
“I’ll be the rst to admit – we overuse it.”
Commissioner Fischer, January 2012, at New York State
