Will Jerry Brown Close Pelican Bay Prison? (tags)

Democratic Governor Jerry Brown is under a federal mandate to release thousands of prisoners from California's overcrowded concentration camp-prisons. Abolishing the entire prison-punishment system and the death penalty would be best, replacing it with job training for decent-paying jobs in one year for those under 50 and lifetime good pensions for those over 50. He could start by closing Pelican Bay Prison, a vicious hellhole that would make Hitler proud.

Editor's Note: President Bush promised a "modern, maximum-security prison" in Iraq -- and the destruction of the notorious Abu Ghraib complex -- as a way of giving Iraq a more humane prison system. But so-called "supermax" prisons in the United States are far from humane, the writer says.

The threat, as Lincoln so eloquently foresaw, comes from within and it is here, now, well-established and growing.

But sometimes they were never returned and they disappeared, the prisoner disappeared. I was there.”
