The entire concept of administrative segregation needs to be looked at revised to meet ACA standards of practice and custodial reviews, documentation and standards.. It is in the best interest of the CDCR and California taxpayers to look into this matter deeply and gain insight on something that has been kept secret for years and now finally making it to the front pages like never before. The five demands are not realistic and should be negotiated on a smaller scale locally to pick up cultures, practices and biases that interfere with operational efficiency and compliance to their own (CDCR) rules.
Pelican Bay serves a purpose but it is wrong when that purpose is misaligned with true justice. Revenge is not part of justice neither is vengeance but it seems to creep in the mission when prisons are operated on a degraded value of human life and tacit approval that anything goes, it is out of control. Prisons designed to be safe and secure and in harmony with human decency and constitutional rule of law are sound. People like to put their own spin on how prisons should be run that is human nature but most believe that rule of law should not exist and anarchy runs the asylums. This is wrong and whether you agree or not.. rule of law must dominate the thinking and action track, not revenge.
