Why are gang members disproportionately placed in solitary confinement? | SocialAction2014 | Scoop.it
Members of criminal gangs are disproportionately placed in restrictive housing when they are imprisoned in the United States, but the evidence supporting this practice is “weak,” says University of Colorado Boulder criminologist David Pyrooz, who advocates more rigorous research on whether widespread isolaton of gang members is based on the best empirical evidence.

Dec 9th for Our Voice of the Voiceless #MumiaAbu-Jamal | SocialAction2014 | Scoop.it
Activists and supporters worldwide mark December 9 on our calendars every year as the anniversary of the state’s 1981 attempted assassination of Mumia Abu-Jamal on the streets of Philadelphia, but this year is different. Mumia faces deteriorating health with his untreated hepatitis C infection and a further risk from the black, oily water being piped into SCI Mahanoy — unfit to drink, unfit to bathe in. Prisoners are given three small cups of water at each meal and no clean water to bathe in. These tactics amount to “death by neglect.”

Death at Chino women’s prison highlights concern over suicide, mental health services

via CCWP Below are links to two articles regarding the most recent, highly disturbing suicide at CIW. Please note that CCWP thinks it is important to circulate these articles even though reporters have included details about conviction history as well as other descriptions that CCWP does not consider relevant to the fact that once again a woman has died at CIW as a result of the state's racist violence and neglect. http://www.dailybulletin.com/general-news/20161130/inmate-death-at-chino-womens-prison-highlights-concern-over-suicide-mental-health-services Inmate death at Chino women’s prison highlights concern over suicide, mental health services By Beatriz Valenzuela, San Bernardino Sun Posted: 11/30/16 CHINO A San Pedro woman who pleaded no contest to fatally stabbing her 10-year-old daughter was found dead in the California Institution for Women, and inmate activists who say Bong Sook Chavez committed suicide are questioning why the woman didn’t receive the help she needed.
