He was under investigation for gang affiliation. Some of them remind me of myself while I was locked up, their whole lives bent on staying sane. For hours, days, I fixated on the patch of sunlight cast against my wall through those barred and grated windows. What is unique about Pennington — if being one of thousands can be considered unique — is that he doesn’t know when, or if, he will get out of the Investigationw.

From this, I can tell you that the year-old has spent nine and a half years in isolation — seven of them alone in the SHU — but I can’t tell you whether it shows invesitgations his stride like I could with the guys who walked past my cell.

He can’t gather or present evidence in his defense. Only after a nearly three-week-long hunger strike last year were SHU inmates allowed calendars, as well as handballs to use in the concrete dog run.
