Today, few know how bad it was for Black and Brown people back in George and Yogi’s day

February 28, 2016

I have been in the system over 30 years and was in the system when Yogi and George Jackson and the rest were all in the Adjustment Center, and the guards and George were killed in 1971. An entire generation has come and gone since then. Very few in the system today even know who they are. Nor do they know how bad conditions were back in the ‘60s and ‘70s, especially for Black and Brown people both in the system and out in the streets.

Ending hostilities means no more violence on the yards – period!

August 30, 2014

I believe that a lot of racial tension in California prisons comes from this: The end of hostilities is being misinterpreted.

Everett Allen, MD, discredited for being sympathetic to prisoners’ medical needs

October 29, 2013

I just read the article that Dr. Everett D. Allen, former chief physician and surgeon at Pelican Bay State Prison, wrote for the Bay View readers in and outside prison walls and agree with everything he said. Dr. Allen has done all he could to help prisoners in the SHU in their court complaints. He is being persecuted for exposing how prison medical staff cuts corners, delays treatment or totally denies it – and I’m glad he spoke up.
