CCI Step Down Program is bogus

June 27, 2015

by Sitawa Nantambu Jamaa

Is this the way CDCr sees prisoners? The CCI Step Down Program is trying to play the men in Steps 3 and 4 for fools, and they aren’t having it. The artist writes, “The symbol N2O on the dart implies nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is what’s inside the balloon, invoking false laughter when the balloon bursts.” – Art: Richard Jackson, D-52210, PBSP SHU C2-218, P.O. Box 7500, Crescent City CA 95532

I have taken the position to shut down this fake SDP (Step Down Program) crap. So all of Step 4, who have the most to lose – meaning some of them are a couple of weeks away from completing their Step 4, and for some they are one, two, three, four months away from being on a mainline, and for some of them it’s been 13, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 and 39 years since they’ve last been in general population, and for Step 3 it ranges from 4 to 31 years – we all agree that these latest types of 115s, or RVRs (CDCR Form 115, Rules Violation Reports), are just another way to keep us held in SHU or a means of bringing us back once we make it out to the General Population mainline, and we’d rather take our stance now!

So, you can start spreading this good news to Corcoran, New Folsom and Pelican Bay by radio, news articles and when family members travel to PBSP (Pelican Bay State Prison) and the other two SHUs.

We shall stop participating Monday, May 11, 2015, indefinitely. We won’t be attending any CC hearings directly dealing with Steps 3 and 4, nor shall we go to those group meetings or do any more of those journals. Now there are two groups for each Step 3 and 4, and that’s a total of 40 prisoners who would have been attending those group meetings weekly. This SDP cannot function without prisoners participating.

I need for you to share that Steps 3 and 4 prisoners will not continue to participate in the SDP, which is corrupt and discriminatory against all SDP prisoners and has been trying to provoke all of us to rebel, get angry and act out.

Our problems come from Warden Kim Holland, Chief Deputy Warden J. Gutierrez, Chief Deputy Warden W. Sullivan, Capt. P. Metzers, IGI Lt. J. Tyree, Deputy Director of Division of Adult Institutions R. Diaz from the CDCR Sacramento office, former SDP Facilitator M. Tann, B. Snider, CC-II, and V. Ybarra, CC-I. All of these Tehachapi officials and the one Sacramento official have knowledge that we as SHU SDP prisoners have been denied our fundamental SHU rights.

As of two weeks ago, we are being denied the use of a razor, or should I say we have a choice to take a five-minute shower or a five-minute shave, but not both.

Now 90 percent of all SDP privileges have been denied us from January 2014 to May 2015. This is a failed program and all of the heads of CDCr know what is going on here at CCI (California Correctional Institution) in Tehachapi.

    Maybe if you lose your rights and have "no benefits" (because you committed how many felonies???) you will QUIT doing crime??? Think about it!!!! Again, we don't give a shit if you whine and complain because YOU ARE IN PRISON BECAUSE YOU COMMITTED A CRIME!!!!! Good God! We do NOT feel sorry for you!!!! You what?? raped, beat, committed fraud, stole, did drugs, etc, etc, etc, and you are complaining that you aren't treated like royalty????? Are you for real????? Do your time, QUIT doing CRIME and get your shit together!!!!

    JACK DANIELS it is obvious you care or you wouldn't be spending your time reading a prison news letter. You are probably a Correctional Officer who will never dare speak this way to anyone in the SHU. They are not Rapist or child molesters we don't believe in that. No judge or jury sentenced them to the SHU. It was IGI. YES they do have rights as human beings so SHUT THE FUCK UP YOU COWARD!!!! ANGIE

      Yeah your a moron…..must be nice collecting that welfare cause your man is in prison. Your probably some fat Mexican women who can’t get a real man on the streets so you turned to being an inmate pin pal. Man I bet your gonna have a great wedding in prison; I hope all your family gets to go and take pictures of you two. Don’t forget to bring your kid too so he can see his future home. Hey Angie your inmate friend or husband most definitely has other fat Mexican chicks writing him and sending him packages too. Your not his one and only despite what he’s telling you. When he gets a phone call he most likely isn’t calling you. It’s sad when you go to visit and they tell you that you can’t go cause some other fat Mexican women is already there too see him, then That real happy feeling you had turns to sadness and then your heart starts to pound and you want to faint. Awe……..then the anger comes because you finally realize you weren’t the only one hearing “baby…..I love you. You are my one and only. “

    Jacks friend as in Gay white friend. I advocate for Pelican Bay SHU and I have a Bachelor Degree in Business Administration. I don't have a boyfriend, or a husband in prison. So all the bullshit you are talking I could care less because trust me I can get any man I want. Jacks gay friend doesn't have a name you little fagot looks like you have been used yourself you know it all to well. You are pathetic and your life is miserable that you find pleasure in posting negative comments about inmates who will never read them. You are in the free world get a life, educate yourself or get healthy, hell the people I know in the SHU are far more educated than you. If you are ever in LA look me up @ Equinox Fitness Club bring this post and it will be good for a free pass for my Kick Boxing class I teach at 7:30pm MWF. Then you can tell me what ever you want to my face. Because everyone who reads this paper knows who I am, so Jacks gay friend step up or SHUT THE FUCK UP because you are a COWARD.
