Pelican Bay inmates – who also spend 90 minutes a day alone in bare concrete exercise stalls – are barred from phone calls, only infrequent non-contact visits, and there have been multiple hunger strikes over the years to protest the conditions.

The United Nations has declared that more than 15 days of solitary confinement is “torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading punishment”.

Two of the more notorious inmates gracing Pelican Bay are former music mogul Marion “Suge” Knight and the late cult leader Charles Manson.
