Cant believe some of the comments on here. These are human beings we are talking about. They are not asking to be released. They are simply asking to be treated as human beings. God bless them and their fight. Only God can judge!!!!!!

I did about 18 straight years in San Quentin back in 60'-70's, and I can certify that San Quentin is a bonafide nuthouse more than it is a criminal prison. I think all prisons are nuthouses. I've done time in a lot of jails/prisons since I was a kid, and I can't certify any of them as other than nuthouses, where real crazies are housed. Basically, one who steals, connives, harms and commits other like crimes, is a nut, a crazy, therefore, when a bunch of these crazies are in a large jail or prison, they constitute one large nuthouse. Thus, people should just call them nuthouses instead of jails and prisons.

Prison gangsters are werewolves who deserve solitary containment. Let their minions starve!

This article really underestimates the gang problem in prisons.

What's funny is them starving themselves is actually the best thing they can do for the city.

I read the book 'Code & Conduct of Pelican Bay Prison', and it seemed to state "no gangs allowed"

I can't believe how ignorant these comments are. Please read a book and check your privilege.
