Assembly Speaker Nunez is about to get a taste of what the Ca. State prison system is all about. I wonder if he will get special visiting rights, or if his son will be put into special custody. My son got 20 years for an accidental motorcycle wreck where a person was not deliberately killed but 19 years in prison has turned my son's health into a total disaster. Legally Blind, wheelchair bound and diabetes out of control caused by a lousy prison diet and a long term lack of appropriate medical care. Nunez will probably end up getting his son out like Marlon Brando got his son out in 5 years. Celebrity status usually end up getting a lighter sentence than the rest of us working taxpayers who end up hiring attorneys and get no where in the criminal injustice system for our love ones. Maybe at long last former speaker Nunez (who has stated numerous times in Sacramento that prison is for punishment) will learn first hand the inhumane treatment, over crowded conditions and failure to provide medical care that currently exist in the State prison system. There is no rehabilitation in the prison system, and such a system should not be allowed as it currently is with no oversight. Maybe some of the higher ups in Sacramento will finally get the message of what torture is all about in a prison system that they so actively support. A long term prison sentence is a death sentence.

Former Assembly Speaker Nunez, will soon find out what the State prison system is all about. Or will he? I wonder if he will get special visiting rights? Special housing, and protected custody for his son. If he is treated like my son, who had an accidental motorcycle wreck and got 20 years, very little medical care, and is now close to death, then Mr. Nunez will be in for a rude awakening because, there is no rehabilitation in the Ca. State Prison system. This prison system is inhumane, and should not be allowed to exist under the current lack of over sight, overcrowded conditions, and gross failure to provide a community standard of medical care. A long prison sentence in California is a death sentence.

Release the very sick, either to go home to their relatives or send them to a nursing home. The CDCr gets more money in their prison budget for sick prisoners, they keep them in prison regardless of who has agreed to take care of them. These prisoners are too sick to cause another crime. My son is one of those prisoners. I am willing and able to take care of him, so why not release him. He is wheelchair bound, leggaly blind, and dying of out of control diabetes.

The big boom of prison building with increased jail and prison terms have bankrupted California. The budget is no fix at all for a bankrupt California. We better start rehabilitating some of the prisoners and get them back out into society working and supporting their families. yes prisoners do need to be released with an appropriate support group, and not with a parole officer sitting around the corner just waiting to throw them back into jail. We cannot afford to lock people up for life, and then have to support their families on welfare, food stamps,and free health care for the rest of their life. This is an insane theory that will never bring in one dime of financial benefit to the State. We need to change our punishment mentality and start educating these people with intense efforts to keep families together and supporting one another.

Prisoners do need to be released and put back into the community with appropriate support agencies, and not a parole agent aligned to throw them right back into jail.

Tell Republican Sam Blakeslee to meet me on the steps of Sacramento Superior Court on Sept. 4Th. to ask a Judge for a Writ of Mandate to force the CDCr, Board of Parole and legislators like him to abide by the Law that was passed Assembly Bill 1539 an "Extended Compassionate Release" for disabled prisoners, like my son, Mark Grangetto D-40372. I want to bring my son home and take care of him. The CDCr is denyng a request for a sentence recall even though he has served almost 19 years in prison for a motorcycle wreck. Wheelchair bound, diabetes out of control, Hepatitis C, legally blind and the list of medical problems go on and on. All of these conditions were caused while he was in prison. The prison diet is unbelievable and will kill any diabetic. They even cut the food diet in the prisons. How can you cut a 1500 calorie diet when he is on insulin. He is nauseated 24 hours a day. Prisons are a glorified concentration camp of starvation. They won''t release any prisoners even to the family members who want to take care of them. You are all seeing the crushing results of a punishment mentality, and they have the nerve to call this rehabilitation. Nora Weber, Bakersfield, Ca..

Anytime someone receives a paycheck from a public agency, be it, Federal, State, County or City, everything they do while on the job should be a matter of public record. All actions should be open for every taxpayer to attend hearings, read transcripts and publish articles in the public forum as to the events taking place, and the conduct of the person(s) involved.
Cameras should be in every Courtroom. Allowing any Internet user and news media to pick up the feed. It would put a stop to all the back room deals made by Judges between attorneys while the client is left sitting the Courtroom and knows nothing that is being said. I believe everything said should be said from the bench and in open Court for everyone to hear. The "Justice for all" sign on the Court house might just begin to take on the meaning of "Justice".
Release does prove one thing, our sentencing laws are completely out of control, and three strikes was never intended to be used for the sentencing of minor crimes. Now that the Courts have seen the wrong the "three strikes Law" have imposed, what will they do about it? $100.00 and a ticket out of prison will stop some of the judicial financial waste, but will it stop the petty crimes and change the person's crime pattern, NO! We must create an honest to goodness rehabilitation program and a hand-up for all those who are generally discarded in society. We can no longer ignore the poor and mentally ill and expect them to survive on the streets or warehoused in the prisons. That is a recipe for human disaster. This case describes the details of just such a society problem. Three strikes is an abuse of judicial power and must be stopped. How do we stop the distruction of a human being brought on by an ever increasing population without a safety net for the weakest among us?
