Default Validating?

My son is under "investigation" and
just went thru a 3 day inhumane ordeal.

He's in Ad. Seg now awaiting the results.

So what does this mean? Will he
be going into SHU if they validate him?

Unfortunately, if they have evidence that will hold up, your son will be placed in the SHU. I'm very sorry to hear about his 3 day ordeal, I hope all is well with him now.

Default 3-day ordeal

what was your son's three day ordeal and how did this other poster know about his ordeal? Are you sure he had an ordeal ... or did the pepper spray effect his brain?
If you don't mind I am very interested in what happen in this "recent" 3 day ordeal.
Hmmm ... seems that CDCR (especially PBSP) is havingh some problems. Hope they don't have a scary dude up there.
Keep the good stuff comin'.

Same thing happened to my friend and he is under investigation by GI right now... how does this effect the rest of his stay? What privileges are taken away?

If he goes to the SHU he won't be allowed calls any longer and packages only 1x per year plus I believe there is a 35.00 spending limit at canteen per month (at least that is what it was when my ex was in The SHU)

Ladyyell,

I don't think I should go into the details
here but I do know my son has a very
strong mind and spirit. The mother
bear in me wishes there was something
I could do but I am helpless and all
I can do is pray.

Shannon,

I sent him a package Oct. 1st and he
has yet to get it and I wonder if he
will. He wasn't allowed
any of his property (he might have it
by now) and has to have
prestamped envelopes now. So sent
that and a little money on Jpay since
they can order commissary in ASU.

Haven't heard a word. Mail is so
slow and our only communication.

Della just hang in there. The mail will be slow if he is being investigated. The canteen limit is $45. I am now sending a check directly to PB as I no longer want to pay the sur charge. DMW

Interesting, I thought you could not send checks to inmates trust accounts. Are they "rollin back" their technology over there? I thought it had to be a money order or through this J-Pay on the internet. Doesn't J-Pay scare you? It is very easy to connect auto-withdrawls from a bank account to an inmates account. Have you heard of this problem? Isn't it inmate-support?

Thank you
LadyYell

By the way ... if you don't mind, desertmoonwoman - what does your name stand for or mean? If you don't mind.

Thank you

DMW,

Directly to P.B. meaning to the inmate
and then staff takes it out? I didn't
know I could send a personal check
either.

I don't worry about Jpay except I don't
like the surcharge as well and then
P.B. takes half of it. So if I send 20.00
Jpay charges 2.95 and then P.B. gets 10 and my son gets 10 and it's ridiculous.

Why can't they put them to work so
they can work off their restitution
instead of the family? I'm even for
chain gangs-they do that back east. I know my son would be all for it. A hard day's work, and getting some air instead of sitting there day after day. And It would be free labor for the state and counties.
I just don't get it.

Well, I just called and they sent his
package back to the vendor.

This is not over yet.

What I have learned so far is it takes very
little to validate a inmate. They actually
don't have to have any evidence, just
a "preponderance" of evidence.

FYI there is a prison rights group
(which is here on the P.B. links as well)
called Ca.Prison Focus. I called them
today and for a small donation they
will send you and your inmate a newsletter. They are also sending
my son a "gang validation manual"
which will help him with his case.
A 602 needs to be filed as well.

They are working on abolishing the
whole SHU system but I believe they need more support and more voices.

E-mailing, writing and calling Arnold is also a start.

I don't know how they came up with the
idea to cage up a human being with
no contact nor why. All I know is it's
horribly wrong.

You can actually go on line and print the newsletters. The most current on line right now is their Spring 2008 edition. You print it yourself and it is free and I just send it myself to my man.
