Re "The real story behind hunger strike" (Dan Morain, Aug. 11): The people mentioned in the column are forgetting one important thing. Prisoners in solitary confinement are there for a reason. They broke the rules of society. They had no regard for the person/persons against whom they committed their crimes.
Prisoners in segregated housing have a roof over their head, a bed to sleep in and three meals a day. Far better than homeless or the real poor. I say leave them in solitary confinement and be reminded daily of crimes they committed.
