John McCullah protests solitary confinement 102 day hunger strike and counting.

John McCullah has been on hunger strike at Pontiac Correctional center for 102 days as of today. John is protesting the horrific torture he has been subjected o since arrival in Illinois Prison system.John has not violated any Illinois prison rules yet IDOc placed him in solitary confinement immediately upon entering the prison system. John is also protesting lack of medical attention by IDOC How can IDOC justify torturing John by placing him in indefinite solitary confinement even though he has not violated any prison rules? It baffles me how Illinois is so quick to torture human beings by the overuse of solitary confinement without justifiable reasons. Support John McCullah Y10200 P.O. BOx 99 Pontiac, Illinois 61764 and demand Illinois ceases this barbaric torture practice.
