Monsters & Madmen : A Death Row Experiment
by Nick Yarris




Overview -
January 1995. The first prison ever condemned by the United Nations for "Active Practices of Torture" was shut down by a civil lawsuit. Huntingdon Prison in Pennsylvania had a dilemma following this ruling against its holding men on Death Row any longer: What to do with the worst men among 225 Death Row prisoners ordered out of their cells more than one hour a day?The answer: Create a special unit where 48 of the most violent and dangerous men would be kept away from the rest of the Death Row inmates. From 1995 to 1998, Nick Yarris was one of those 48 men who were described as "Monsters & Madmen." What he endured over the course of this one, three-year long segment of his 23 years spent on Death Row was so brutal that he has kept it hidden until now. Be prepared for a ride like no other as Nick takes you inside a special experiment that left four people dead, and left him scarred forever from it all . . .
