Change means California prison inmates could get more sleep

SACRAMENTO – Some of California’s most dangerous inmates could be getting more sleep under an agreement announced Thursday that requires guards to hold down the noise.

Dozens of prisoners complained that they were being kept awake around the clock by overnight welfare checks every half-hour.

Under the agreement between attorneys representing inmates and the state, guards in Pelican Bay State Prison’s notorious security housing unit will conduct the checks half as often between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. to minimize the clanging of metal doors.

Guards are even handing out earplugs to help inmates rest.

    If you think this is outrageous type into your search window, prisons in the Netherlands They are shutting down 19 prisons due to low crime rates, a redefining of just who goes to prison and who doesn’t, and why. It is an eye opener, whether you agree or not, it is worth taking a look at, food for thought.

    My God, what has our Nation come to, when convicted criminal scum can start whining about Prison Security and get it changed! I worked for the Fed BOP system and we used to do Count every shift change and once, during the night, about 3am or so. They don’t want their sleep disturbed, then don’t be a criminal!
