Can they really keep a person in the SHU for 9 months like Piper's mysterious whisperer said?
The 2nd paragraph SUGGESTS a review of inmate mental health should be done after TWELVE CONTINUOUS MONTHS in SHU.
ETA: Actually, the kid went to SHU because she requested a female frisk her. "Take her to SHU until we can find a female to COMPLETELY examine her." or words to that effect.
She was being punished for not allowing the men to frisk her.
Notice no-one else asked for a female guard.
