Thanks for this Nancy.  Time for President Obama to do the right thing and close Guantanamo. Internment camps, whether off shore or on the mainland have no place in a civilized nation.

@KayWhitlock @Seeta Honestly the more i know about Pelican Bay -- imho it is the Worst of all

The CDCR has made it worse in response to the last strikes -- Jerry Brown is no better than Arnold here

@nancy a heitzeg @KayWhitlock @Seeta Jerry Brown is in thrall to the correctional officer unions.  I'm pro-union, but also not afraid to call unions out when they fail to stand for justice - especially racial justice.
