Angola closes its notorious Camp J
Angola closes its notorious Camp J, 'a microcosm of a lot of things that are wrong'

After more than 40 years as one of the most restrictive housing units within Louisiana’s Angola prison, corrections officials have closed Camp J — which at its peak confined more than 400 prisoners being disciplined in solitary cells for more than 23 hours a day.

While prison officials primarily cited the decades-old facility and its infrastructure for the closure, which they say had created safety issues after years of deterioration, advocates called the move a much-needed end to extremely detrimental conditions.

Sounds inhumane and unconstitutional I'm glad that hell-hole closed, no one should have to tolerate such conditions :(

Closing Camp J is a good thing. That's just a small thing compared to the whole system at large.
