I have no sympathy whatsoever for this type, and punishment is all that can be applied short of execution. However it is a fact that extreme solitary confinement is mentally damaging to humans in general, and I suppose I would question whether even for someone like this it could not be called a form of torture. I don’t however know what could be done differently. Certainly he cannot be allowed to dictate terms.
