I spent 10 years in prison on drug charges and 4 years in Solitary before becoming an author. I'm a normal White guy, no gang affiliation, just a former drug addict and dealer. I was involved in a riot where the northern Mexicans rushed the southern Mexicans and I was in the way, and came to the aid of the outnumbered southern Mexicans. From that point on I was mislabeled a southern Mexican in Solitary. People don't understand how many people are in Solitary without any due process to get out! I Published Underdog and Prison Riot to shine a light on these issues.

Judges paid off by privatized prisons.

They are only doing this because it keeps peoples demands from being met. If no one dies as a result of a hungerstrike, its like it never happened. It can be business as usual. When people start dropping like flies, thats when you see the admin feel the pressure to change policies. Now, they dont have to. Just spend more tax payers money on med bills and nosetubes.

gitmo in ca! gov moonbeam and the ca gov't are inflicting cruel and unusual punishment on these prisoners. they should cut loose all the non-violent offenders. then offer home detention for dui/dwi offenders that killed no-one.

moo nbeam's excuse about fearing releasing 10K violent offenders was a lame one. he could direct the prisoner releases based upon the convictions.
