CA: Dismantling at-risk inmate housing brings hurdles

Special California prisons intended to protect gang informants, disgraced cops and child molesters have become so violent, gang-riddled and crowded that officials are dismantling what’s become the United States’ largest protective custody program. Full Article

When this news first came out, I thought it was a ploy by CDCR to get more money. If they actually proceed with this, it’s going to get real messy, real fast. CDCR knows this. This has something to do with money. They have some kind of long-game in mind here. Maybe when a few hundred people get killed, they can go back to the state for more money to recreate PC yards. I don’t know, but this doesn’t sound right. I’ve been on three of those PC yards. They’re no picnic. But the whole reason PC yards were created… Read more »

It’s hard to see CDCR’s profit motive here, but there is always a profit motive anytime CDCR is involved. Perhaps the “long-term” plan is to use the “dismantling” process as an excuse to lobby for increased prison funding: more “beds,” buildings, guards, staff, contracts, etc. The dismantling process may even add to recidivism, as “sex offenders” may be more shamed into isolation during their incarceration because of fear of being “outed.” This whole dismantling process may even bring trauma to those who are not sex offenders, thus exacerbating one’s recidivism.

Pay more attention to the laws not studies. If they dont steal more than $900 its just a ticket now, battery on peace officer is not a crime no more,… Read more »

Are you saying that you work in a prison?

Stop telling people to not believe science. Especially based on some excuse that it is “liberal”. Sure, be skeptical about studies unless you read and understand them thoroughly. But, science is typically the best thing we have. They are especially superior to reckless, anecdotal stories from anyone who has been “on the inside”. Also, as long as the $EX Offender Registries ($ORs) exist and because they exist, guards and everyone else related to prisons, law enforcement, etc. are way, way, way overpaid and I will do what I can to ensure that their compensation goes down as low as it… Read more »
