My brother is in prison for murder. He is doing his time and rightfully so. Having said that he is 60 years old and while the crime he committed is horrible, he is still a human being. Having the Dr at Tehachapi tell him 'I don't agree you need a cane' and 'I don't agree you have IBS' is simply unconcionable. Time for an undercover investigation!!!!!

    The CO's are thieves and thugs themselves! Those with all the tattoos and bald heads would look like inmates if you put them in an orange jumpsuit...they think they're above the law!

My boyfriend is in the shu at Tehachapi. He wrote to me and told me a story about falling off his rack and breaking his nose. He said he was in 3 different hospitals and had surgery on his nose. They told him he had brain bleeding. He told me that when he was released they put him in a cell with no bunk, just the floor. He kept telling the CO that he was dizzy, all night long he was telling them. They ignored him. He woke up in puddle of blood. The morning staff saw it and sent him back to the hospital. They told him he should have never been left in that kind of condition. First of all, he did not fall off his rack. What the hell is going on inside Tehachapi and what can be done to get the inmates their civil rights back?

It takes over 3 weeks for the inmates to get mail, and about the same time for family member to receive mail from inmates, what the heck is going on there? What can we do about it and who can we write concerning this matter, that prison is horrible, and the CO's are rude and lazy.

Has any one you know petitioned for early release?

SACRAMENTO (CBS SF) — A ballot measure passed by voters last week has already freed hundreds of inmates from California county jails after their felony charges were reduced to misdemeanors.

Sheriffs across the state immediately began implementing the Proposition 47, which calls for treating shoplifting, forgery, fraud, petty theft and possession of small amounts of drugs, including cocaine, heroin and methamphetamines, as misdemeanors instead of felonies.

Two-dozen suspects who were being held on those charges walked out of Sacramento County jail two days after 58 percent of voters approved the initiative on Tuesday. They were among the more than 400 Sacramento jail inmates expected to be freed while they await trial on reduced charges that in many cases will no longer keep people behind bars after arrests.

Bay Area Judges barely even waited for election results to be certified before resentencing inmates and reducing charges, according to the Bay Area News Group.

On Friday, two Contra Costa judges signed orders for the release of seven inmates serving sentences across the state for crimes committed in the East Bay county. Contra Costa Public Defender Robin Lipetzky told the Bay Area News Group that about 35 inmates had been released as of Friday from the county jail after some of them had already served enough time to be set free with reduced charges, while others were released on lower or no bail.

The state corrections department also began notifying nearly 4,800 inmates in California prisons that they can petition judges to have their felony convictions and sentences reduced. Convicts serving time for the felonies in local jails can also petition for release.

Prison reform advocates celebrated the passing of the ballot measure saying it will drastically reduce overcrowded prisons while cutting the rate of mass incarceration.

The measure intends to save hundreds of millions of dollars a year in reduced prison and jail costs. Under the initiative, savings will be diverted to rehabilitation programs intended to reduce crime, though the programs will lag far behind the criminals’ release.

The initiative is projected to keep about 4,000 inmates out of state prisons each year, more than enough to help the state meet a population cap ordered by federal judges.

    But at Tehachapi Prison, they try to deny all and ever early release. If you do get it, you had to write many complaints and contact Sacramento plus much more. The staff is a piece of shit.

November 2014


California approved a major shift against mass incarceration on Tuesday in a vote that could lead to the release of thousands of state prisoners.

Nonviolent felonies like shoplifting and drug possession will be downgraded to misdemeanors under the ballot measure, Proposition 47. As many as 10,000 people could be eligible for early release from state prisons, and it's expected that courts will annually dispense around 40,000 fewer felony convictions.

The state Legislative Analyst's Office estimates that the new measure will save hundreds of millions of dollars on prisons. That money is to be redirected to education, mental health and addiction services -- a novel approach that reformers hope will serve as a model in the larger push against mass incarceration.

The approval of the ballot measure could also help California grapple with massive overcrowding in its state prisons, which are still struggling to release enough inmates to comply with a 2011 U.S. Supreme Court order.

Although California once led the nation in tough-on-crime policies, like the state's infamous three-strikes felony law, Proposition 47 has led in every poll conducted since it was certified in June. The measure's supporters have been an eclectic bunch, from conservatives like Newt Gingrich and business tycoon B. Wayne Hughes Jr. to liberal performers like John Legend and Jay-Z.

Ms. Sherman

I know several inmates there at tehachapi, its the worse, and these guys are there for drug charges, nothing but hurting themselves, and the CO's there are horrible, they commit crimes themselves everyday, they are cowards and get paid to mistreat human beings, its a disgrace. Calls to the Ombudsman does not help, she could care less, we need to continue writing letters and making complaints. Exposing these people, getting paid to mistreat human being. Hiding behind there badge which they don't deserve.

The practice of the prisons policing themselves needs to be revoked/reformed.

Don't get mad...get involved!


Incidences of abuse and violence involving prison inmates and security personnel is an ongoing issue regardless of the facility's level of security and supervision. Overcrowding is chief among the factors that contribute to the violence that has become closely associated the prison system in the United States. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, nearly all prisons in the U.S. operate at either 100 percent capacity or are significantly over-crowded due to a 600 percent rise in the population of prison inmates since 1980.

With the 600 percent rise in our prison systems, there are now more of a percentage of us who have loved ones incarcerated which also means we are large in numbers than before! Speak out! Write your congress members and Senators about the need to reform!

    Yes, easier said than done. Write and complain as an individual is a waste of time. Plus all people have lives and are too busy with their every day la di da wonderful lives to do anything. You need to be a lawyer of some kind or higher to get anything done. But soon we shall all unite and get them pieces of shit.

Proposition 47 would allow more than 7,000 inmates already serving time, including those convicted under the "three strikes" law, to petition courts to reduce their sentences. The nonpartisan Legislative Analyst's Office estimates that annual savings to the state prison budget as a result of reduced sentences would eventually be $100 million to $300 million.
