Often for months. (One case was like, almost a year.) Over 60 wheelchair users being put in solitary for using wheelchairs. Gay people being put in solitary for consensual kissing. Suicidal people being put in Even Worse Solitary for not wanting to survive the Slightly Less Horrid Solitary. “The mentally ill placed in isolation for reasons that included attempting suicide, being the victim of a physical attack or exhibiting behavior related to their mental illness.” “A Guatemalan man spent two months in solitary confinement at a county jail in Maryland. The reason: He had a prosthetic leg.” “A mentally ill Ukrainian man was put in isolation for 15 days at a detention facility in Arizona. His offense: putting half a green pepper in one of his socks.” “Moises Tino‐Lopez, 23, from Guatemala, died in 2016 in an isolation cell. Once in isolation, the facility did not ensure he got needed anti-seizure medication. He then died from a seizure.” (And they gave no reason for putting him in isolation, either.) And they only keep records of solitaries over 14 days. All the cases listed here are 15+ days of solitary, otherwise they wouldn’t even be on the record. Only 11% of detainees have lawyers. Once you’re in solitary, you pretty much can’t call your lawyer anymore even if you have one. You certainly can’t get one if you hadn’t had one before. The United Nations special rapporteur on torture has said that solitary confinement can amount to “torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment,” and that isolation for more than 15 days should be banned, except in exceptional circumstances. : MSNBC eMSNBC @MSNBC Thousands of immigrants forced into solitary confinement by ICE for being physically disabled or gay.

For the uninitiated, “Flashpoint” is a time-twisting 2011 DC Comics crossover event that was written by Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, with art by Andy Kubert and immediately preceded the New 52 initiative (which, ironically, just ended in 2016). In the story, Barry Allen wakes up in an alternate reality where his mother is still alive and he doesn’t have his powers, which means he isn’t The Flash. However, those aren’t the only changes. In this topsy-turvy world, Superman is a scrawny boy because he’s never seen the sun since the government captured him when he landed on Earth; Thomas Wayne is a ruthless version of the Batman because his son Bruce murdered and wife Martha becomes the Joker; Aquaman and Wonder Woman are at war; and Cyborg is the world’s most popular superhero — like we said, topsy turvy. The twist in the story is that Barry discovers he caused this alternate reality when he traveled back in time to save his mom from being murdered. So, Barry embarks on a quest to regain his powers and restore the timeline before Aquaman and Wonder Woman’s war destroys the planet, which is a likely possibility. While he succeeds in defeating the Reverse Flash, his attempts to fix the timeline still led to the continuity changes that were trademarks of the New 52, which rebooted the entire DC Comics universe.
