Between the Bars,
Hello To All In The Real World,

I'm back yall, Sorry it took me a while but READ THE NEXT EIGHT (8) PAGES = PROOF OF BLATANT CORRUPTION IN Calif. Dept. of Corrections & Rehab (CDCR)! The last three (3) PRISONS, including CORCORAN, SALINAS & LANCASTER ARE bursting at the seams & fraught with: Abuse, Waste, Retaliation & Corruption! See the following pages - As I've been in & out of Administrative Segregation (ASU) - ALSO KNOWN AS Solitary! I've been too busy being set up by crooked prison guards & fighting & BEATING THOSE CHARGES! ONE GOOD THING IS ---> [image - picture of Michael Singh above the words 'Happy Mother's Day'] This picture I was able to take/send to my mom for Mother's Day & brighten her day!
I don't know who said it, but one of my all-time favorite quotes goes something like this: The Power of The People is Greater Than The People In Power! & "The degree of civilization in a society can be judged by entering it's prisons" by: FYODOR DOSTOYEVSKY. All that's left = Get Gov. BROWN to make these crooked guards (who've re-named themselves - Correctional Officers [funny because they never correction anything] to wear 'body-cams', so the public can see exactly how they earn $100,000 a year (highest paid guards - in the world)! Holla At Me! I'll reply to all! Been going thru 9/11 discrimination - since 9/11) *Respectfully, Michael Manjeet Singh

Dear Mr. Singh:

We received your recent letters and we are so sorry to hear about what happened to you. We are very concerned about your experiences.

On May 9, 2017, we represented a long and detailed report to CDCR about staff misconduct and violence at SVSP. The report we submitted to CDCR was based on 125 interviews that the Prison Law Office conducted with prisoners at SVSP. It focused on instances of staff misconduct alleged to have occurred between August 2016 and March 2017. We raised concerns about excessive force, harassment and verbal abuse by officers, failure to stop violence between prisoners, and interference with prisoners' access to programs and disability accommodations. We used prisoners' names in the report only where we had explicit permission to do so.

In particular, the report documented:

- Twenty-eight allegations that custody officers disclose prisoners' commitment offenses to other prisoners, including, in some cases, with express instructions to assault or otherwise confront the prisoner in question.
- Thirty-three allegations that officers interfere with the appeals process or retaliate against prisoners who file staff complaints, including specific allegations that two captains threatened or discouraged prisoners from submitting appeals.
- Ten allegations that officer facilitate assaults on prisoners, including five highly consistent reports about the same officer on D yard.
- Eighteen allegations that officers fail to respond to prisoners' serious safety concerns, ignore requests for emergency medical assistance, and force prisoners to sign "marriage chronos" with individuals who have attacked or threatened to attack them, despite ongoing serious safety concerns.

- Eighteen allegations that officers fail to respond in a timely manner to violence between prisoners, including by allowing prisoners to assault one another for several minutes before intervening.
- Thirty-three allegations that officers intimidate, harass, and threaten prisoners, including on basis of race, sexual orientation, disability, and mental health needs.
- Twenty allegations that officer use excessive force against prisoners, including several allegations involving captains, lieutenants, and sergeants. In several cases, CDCR medical records corroborate the prisoners' alleged injuries.
- Seventeen allegations that when officers do respond to fighting on the yard, they do so excessively, including through indiscriminate use of grenades.
- Fourteen allegations that officers actively prevent individuals from attending medical ducats, participating in their work assignments, or otherwise accessing programs and services as SVSP.

The allegations documented in our report implicated every yard of the prison and involved 100 officers, including captains, lieutenants, and seargeant. After releasing our report to CDCR, we visited the prison with executive staff from CDCR Headquarters and met with the leadership of the prison to express our concerns. We have requested that CDCR consider a number of measures to improve conditions and culture at SVSP.

In the meantime, we remain concerned about conditions at SVSP, and we are continuing to monitor conditions there. We plan to continue advocating for better conditions at SVSP if we do not see positive changes there.

Please keep us updated on your situation, including if you face any new or ongoing problems with staff. We ask that you include dates of new incidents and names of those involved. If you experience new or ongoing problems with staff members, we also encourage you to file a 602 (if you feel safe doing so). You can send us copies of any 602s you file, along with any responses you receive.

If you tell us about any incidents at SVSP, please also let us know if it is OK for us to use your name when reporting any incidents to CDCR. It is best when we can use names, but reporting anonymous information is also helpful.

If you hear about other people experiencing problems with staff or witnessing staff misconduct, please encourage them to write to us (whether or not they are Armstrong class members).

We hope you are doing okay.

Sincerely,
L C
