To the Editor: It is absolutely amazing to me that no one has mentioned the cause of the turmoil and violence on Rikers Island.

The one and only cause is that the left/liberal bleeding-heart ideologues have forbidden the use of solitary confinement to control violent prisoners.

Do you see this nonsense in the state prison system? Absolutely not.

Mentally ill prisoners should be in a separate building and be properly medicated and advised by psychiatrists and psychologists. Get real!
