Inmates renew hunger strike over high-security units

Living condition issues in Californian prisons.

Leave a comment after reading the article. I would be really interested in finding out what you think about it.

It seems to me that living conditions in prisons around the world are always precarious and it’s all prisoners can do to go on hunger strikes to try and improve them.

Personally I don’t think it should be this way. If the CJS is going to work, living conditions and a safe environment should and must be priorities or the message it gives out certainly won’t get to turn criminals around to a better way of life.

If the CJS can’t give new hope for a more productive and satisfying life to people who fall into the pit of crime, how can it hope to make a ¬†positive difference in their life?

It just doesn’t make sense. Why spend millions every year to house people with absolute no hope in life without giving them an option?
