Herman’s House by Angad Singh Bhalla
Herman’s House Conversation Starter:
Amnesty International has described Herman Wallace’s situation as “cruel and unusual” punishment that is in violation of the U.S. Constitution. In contrast, a New Orleans resident argues with Jackie Sumell about the issue, saying that people are behind bars “because they’re supposed to be there.” What do you think? Is prolonged solitary confinement “cruel and unusual”? Why or why not?
