Prisoner Hunger Strike

Watch Complete Episode: July 12, 2013 »

Gov. Brown has gone to the U.S. Supreme Court to fight a lower court's order requiring the release of nearly 10,000 prisoners to ease overcrowding in California prisons. Meanwhile, thousands of inmates continue to refuse meals in the largest prison hunger strike in state history. Protestors are targeting prison conditions, especially for inmates held in long-term isolation in "Security Housing Units" around the state. Prior hunger strikes prompted some policy changes, but many prisoners claim they haven't gone far enough.
