Description

This article examines Upstate Correctional Facility, "a place to send the most disruptive inmates so that the rest of the state's prisons could run more smoothly." The prison was a place where inmates from other prisons would go after breaking prison rules elsewhere. "Just as in solitary confinement, the men would stay in their cells for 23 hours a day ... At Upstate, though, officials added a harrowing twist: Each prisoner would be locked in a tiny cell all day with somebody else." After a prisoner was killed by his cell mate, The Village Voice investigates how two highly aggressive prisoners were locked in the same cell.
