Court tells prison to stop race-based punishment

 An appeals court has ordered California's Pelican Bay State Prison to halt race-based punishment except during riots and other dire emergencies.
The California Court of Appeal on Wednesday ruled that Pelican Bay authorities were wrong to deprive certain ethnic groups privileges such as family visits, outside exercise and religious services during lengthy periods of heightened racial tensions.
 
The unanimous three-judge panel upheld a lower court ruling in favor of Jose Morales, a Hispanic inmate from Southern California.
 
Morales filed a lawsuit in 2010 alleging he was denied certain privileges afforded other inmates because of his ethnic classification.
 
Prison officials argued unsuccessfully that such "partial lockdowns" of certain ethnic groups is a vital tool in combating racial violence.

Maybe the judges should be there when they get off the bus.if they listen to the first question the inmates get asked(who do you run with?). then they might understand the lockdowns.All of the inmates are gang members or are under prison gang rules. judges need to wake up and visit pelican bay and be educated on what is going on before the have any say of what happens there.

Maybe if we mix em up and let em fight, we'll only have time to do prison work, instead of pampering and serving the inmates.

Lots of fights equals less church time and special unlock times.
