Atlantic Voice tells stories about issues and people throughout the region. We present documentaries prepared by journalists that take a thoughtful approach to the changes going on in our region. We talk about the things that pull us together as a region - and sometimes tear us apart!
This week on AV, Shaina Luck takes us into a dry cell. It’s a windowless prison cell with no working plumbing. The lights are always on and there’s 24-7 monitoring. Guards wait and watch for days, even weeks for prisoners to expel suspected contraband from their bodies. Some consider dry cells torture.
