If someone doesn't want to be treated like an animal they shouldn't act like an animal.

The guys they put in the max prison in Malone are beyond correction. They're as close to animals as one can get. They get exactly what they deserve. Maybe these civil liberty people should spend a day of two watching these guys to see for themselves what it's like.
Also, these inmates have every opportunity to earn their way out of the SHU part of the prison and be placed into the cadre cell block. These are guys who are allowed out of their cells, have a TV, and work in the prison. They earn it on good behavior and actions on their part to straighten themselves out. Some do. Most don't. The inmates are in control of their own destiny when it comes to this. Some of these guys are in the SHU for their own protection too. They're big wheels in gangs or witnessed a crime and they're being protected against retaliation by rival gang members.
These inmates have earned their way into that place because they attacked a CO or a nurse or killed another inmate or something equally horrible. It's not arbitrary when the state puts them there. Like I said, some inmates simply are not going to be "corrected" until a frontal lobotomy is done on them.
