Episode Description:

Bobby Dellelo, 68 years old addressed a group at the REM Center in Waterville on February 11th. Bobby spent two thirds of his life in custody in one way or another. While in Walpole Prison, he spent over five years in solitary confinement. While there, he experienced a conversion, got his GED, an associate's degree and a bachelor's in sociology. He had a natural life sentence overturned, much through his own effort.

Bobby is in a unique position to have experienced the hell of solitary confinement and an education in psychology to analyze the effects of that experience. After listening to Bobby, you will finally understand the damaging nature of solitary confinement. To place any human being in solitary confinement is, in itself, a criminal act. Bobby will go on to explain the sudden rash in the construction of Super Max Prisons; their appearance was no accident.

You will also hear from Robbie Bothen of the Maine Prisoner Advocacy Coalition and Lance Tapley, journalist with "The Portland Phoenix" and ackowledged authority on Super Max.
