Default Mississippi rethinks solitary confinement

CBS News Story from 5/18/13 titled, "Mississippi rethinks solitary confinement"

I cannot paste the link. If you search Google with the above title, you will get it as a top search result.

An excerpt:
"In 2007, there were around 1,300 inmates held in solitary confinement across Mississippi. Today, according to the department of corrections, there are slightly more than 300, a decrease of 75 percent.

"Around 15 inmates are held in solitary confinement in another building at Parchman, with the rest in clusters at 14 other prisons. Most of these inmates are involved in educational programs, mental health counseling, and treatment for alcohol and drug addictions."
