CDCR releases new regulations for SHU placement

From Prison Hunger Strike Solidarity

Last week, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) released  new regulations pertaining to how prisoners are placed in Security Housing Units (SHUs) and how prisoners can be released from the SHU back into prison’s general population.

These new regulations are in part the CDCR’s response to the CA hunger strikes, however they do not fully address the torturous conditions prisoners were protesting. According to attorney Charles Carbone, these regulations could expand the number of people classified as “gang members” and increase the number of people imprisoned in SHUs.
