Leighton Johnson said he was chained up for three days including when eating and using the toilet at the Northern Correctional Institution before it was closed. “Human beings need to interact with each other,” Johnson said. “You already stripped them of their freedom, society, their family and the will to do whatever they want. Then on top of that, you stripped them from social interactions, or you minimize it to an hour a day of walking around in a cage like an animal. How is that making society better?” Yehyun Kim / ctmirror.org
