Another story that is not being reported at all by the mainstream press. FACT: These prisoners will be eventually released back into society and if they are not given programs to rehabilitate themselves they will come home and restart a life of crime and terrorize their communities. Shouts to Britt Middleton for posting this story:
The hunger strike that started in July at the Secure Housing Unit at California’s Pelican Bay State Prison has spread throughout the state and even to facilities in Arizona, Mississippi and Oklahoma. The prisoners went on strike to protest inhumane prison policies, including one that allowed nearly half of Pelican Bay’s 1,111 prisoners to be held in solitary confinement for more than 10 years. Prisoners now say they face harsh retaliation from guards as the strike wages on.
