Do you mind if I ask what Prison your fiancée in? Are they still on lockdown? Has he been able to call? Has he written to you with details of what’s going on? I’m sorry for the barrage of questions. My husband’s yard hasn’t been integrated, yet and, of course my nerves are shattered.

Mine is at Wasco and they have not been on lockdown at all since he's been there - he calls regularly, so we don't write that often these days. He told me on the phone the details of what went down with the incident (after he'd had his hearing). I don't really feel comfortable putting the details out here, sorry, but nobody got hurt as the guards came in and broke it off. As for him sharing with me what's going on....I don't think it is that bad where he's at, he's never given me the impression that he is overly concerned or fearing for his life, although he's admitted that stuff goes on every week and obviously you always need to watch your back. He has actually said that he thinks integration could be a good thing, he just thinks it shouldn't be done this way and the staff do not know what they are doing...so the whole thing is kinda messed up because of that.

I know it's easier said than done but try not to worry yourself sick

Default 50/50 yard

They are reintergrateing all California prisons to be mixed SNY with general population yards. This is a very dangerous situation. Please sign petition to stop this. Care 2 petitions.

CDCR has perfectly functioning GP yards right now that they are about to send to hell.
They also get more money to hire more co’s to protect these “dangerous criminals” from each other. More money means more assholes hired, more “cool” tactical gear to be bought and more food for the cos to eat while the inmates eat shit. They need the inmates to fight and go to the hole and to solitary they get more money and can hire more man power for their machine. A lot of cos are from the same family for generations it’s like a career. It’s a money making machine with for profit prison stock sold on Wall Street. Our loved ones are over charged over sentenced and then traded on Wall Street like a commodity. It sickening

Unhappy Lockdown

Ladies! We all need to email the governor's office. Everyone! Our love ones are at risk with this integration of inmates . CDCR is well aware if the big mistake. From how they put it to where there getting inmates ready for society. How are they getting them ready for society? When in the real world on the daily basis we don't deal with child molesters or police informants.So how are preparing them for that . They are rioting in other prisons as we speak. Inmates that talked to the police or owe money for their drug habit. Ran over there . These inmates haven't seen them but now with this they are putting rockwielders and poodles together. A total disaster . Please ladies get your love ones out of danger by emailing Jerry Brown .

Not giving my opinion on integration but commenting on this ^^^
Actually, we do. And murders and those who commit DV and defraud seniors and those who have homophobic and racial prejudice and active and former gang members. If you go out of your house and to the grocery store, you're interacting with them. So to say that we don't is misleading. I have three registered sex offenders living within a half mile of my home. Pretty sure I've said good morning to them more than a few times.

Part of the unfortunate experience that is prison is that it reinforces an "us" and "them" mentality. While SNY was intended to protect vulnerable inmates, it also created a clear line in the sand that does not exist outside of prison walls.

I do believe that some aspects of integration are misguided, but this concept isn't one of them. If our loved ones can't learn to navigate socially with those who do not hold the same values inside prison-- where conduct is monitored and controlled, how high should our expectations be when they are released?

Jujube,
Do you not have any neighbors or shop? In the free world all of these people exist together, odds are you will run into a Felon everyday. Could you please define what type of prisoner is a Rottweiler and what type of prisoners are Poodles? I’m not being rude, I just need clarification please, I was under the impression that everyone in Prison allegedly committed a crime, please correct me if I’m wrong? Thanks

You're not wrong on that point. I don't think that is what Jujube was attempting with the analogy.

There are inmates who knowingly continue active participation in gangs, drug distribution, other activities that are destructive. There are inmates who have figured out and decided they are done with that lifestyle and no longer want to be around it. There are also inmates who don't have fortitude or ability to avoid it whether they want to or not.

They separate themselves by changes they make and actions they take once in prison. As Miamac put it, SNY was a "line in the sand" or a place they could go to theoretically get away from it. I think over time that isn't working out so well and maybe SNY is not so different anymore. We have a large percent of California inmates in SNY.

CDCR seems to think integration is the answer. Maybe it could be, but CDCR is being tight lipped and brushing off reports of fights and riots and violence resulting from this. Lots of stories, virtually nothing official. People have a right to be upset based on lack of information alone. Just cannot trust without that.

Yes, exactly. If this was the reformative holy grail they seem to think it is, why not be transparent? I suppose they could cite security risks, but umm...isn't that the point? That this risks the security of certain populaces?

I happen to support voluntary integration. I think just as SNY created a safe, incentivized place to program, integrated yards could hold the same potential. This is not that. This is voluntold with too many old-school egos in play and real lives at risk.
