Michael Barajas is a staff writer covering civil rights for the Observer, former editor of the San Antonio Current, and managing editor of the Houston Press.
For 22 hours a day, 4,400 inmates of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice sit in small cells, isolated behind doors designed to block communication. That gives Texas more prisoners in solitary confinement than all other state and federal prisons combined. Texas Observer staff writer Michael Barajas joins host Krys Boyd to talk about this controversial punishment – his story “The Prison Inside Prison” was published by The Texas Observer.
