ten years in the goddamn hole

 30 days? how about a decade. 

“that really is remarkable — based soley upon the continued violation of grooming policy — to put somebody in the hole for 10 years.”

maybe reggae would have been more appropriate. but I think not.

Bill Clinton was president when a handful of Virginia prisoners entered segregation cells rather than cut their hair. The inmates, Rastafarians, complain the Department of Corrections’ grooming policy of Dec. 15, 1999, violates their religion. … 
Next week marks a decade that at least eight of them have been confined alone in small cells for refusing to comply — allowed out for three showers and five hourlong recreation periods a week.
