NC: Inmate died after swallowing objects

This makes me super mad.

From the article: “Peyton died March 27 at Central Prison in Raleigh, where he had been cited by prison staff at least 25 times for infractions related to attempts to harm himself. He was in solitary confinement when he died.”

So, this inmate clearly has a mental health issue and a dangerous addiction to swallowing objects, which may or may not be suicide attempts, and the response is to lock him up in solitary confinement?  Yeah, that’ll cure him.  Or not.
