Omg exactly. They bring ALL of them back and the problems still continue. Every time the yard goes down my husband doesn’t get to go to his classes or the self help programs. So it’s taking even longer for him to get his milestones. It’s hard enough even getting into these programs at CCI. They don’t do anything for them, to encourage good behavior or even facilitate good behavior. Yeah that fight last night had to do with the race riot from the first lockdown. So, I’m sure something else will ensue shortly. Sometimes though it’s not all of A yard. Just certain blocks. It’s always In my hubbys block. He’s in 6. I can’t wait for his annual. Hopefully he’ll get to leave.

That's so crazy, because everything you just said my husband said last night. They offer them nothing to get their milestones. My husband is currently working on "GOGI" courses. He enjoys them a lot and he says they have helped him. Has your husband heard of it? My husband also wants to transfer out. We'll just have to wait and see only a few more weeks....

I don't know that this will work but I'm thinking of maybe encouraging as many wives and inmates on A yard as possible to write letters. Have the inmates anonymously write letters explaining how the gang activity is negatively impacting their program, have the families write letters explaining how we see the frustration it is causing our loved ones when they can't attend their self help classes. These guys are on an SNY yard because they wanted to grow up, they wanted to prove to the CDCR they had changed, they are focused on their rehabilitation and these riots, the drugs, the gang activity is all negatively effecting that, making it harder for our guys to be successful. I want to take these letters to the warden at an IFC meeting and force the issue and show him how many people actually want a calm programming yard. I dont know that it would work but I think it's worth a shot. When these guys cause problems on the yard they need to be separated and shipped elsewhere so they can't team up and cause sh*t. I think leaving the letters anon is best so the guys don't worry about people knowing they're doing it but I think the warden needs to have the truth put right in front of his face. That all the other yards are functioning but A yard has gone bass ackwards because they aren't addressing the issue.....I'm just ranting but I think the administration at the prison needs to have their hand forced to look at the yard and make changes...

It's a program called "Getting Out by Going In". It's a self help program created by other inmates to prepare for release and how to handle certain situations. My husband gets handbooks and turns them in upon completion. He's gotten 2 certificates so far. They have anger management, parenting classes, and preparation for release.

I love the idea. Although I'm not the best at writing those kinds of letters. I'll definitely bring it to my husbands attention and see what he thinks. I'm sure they are well aware of what's going on, they're just turning a blind eye and that is NOT fair to those of our guys who actually want change. I'm in to help as much as I can.

We're a much stronger force if we work together.

They absolutely turn a blind eye and they have admitted that too. I think the confrontation of groups of people writing and saying this is not ok would make it much harder for them though to just blatantly ignore the problem.....

I think itís a good idea. But I donít think any good will come or it. Regardless if they are anonymous or not, the guys will sill be affected in a negative way. That happened almost a year ago a wife said something with a group of them anonymously and every cell got searched and the guards took all their food and purťe shampooo on it. They will always find a way to retaliate. And itís so sad and so wrong!!!!

I think my hubby might be apart of the GOGI. Because heís enrolled In those classes!
Has anyone gotten a call this morning ?
