The people who committed the crime will not tell the truth! My son was tried and heard by a tainted jury, and the DA buried crucial evidence that would have cleared him. The photo lineup was fixed by the detectives who arrested him in such a way it put up a flag for my son, He was railroaded and kept in jail for 15 months before being transferred to prison. I am fighting really hard now to get him home. It’s amazing how someone commits two murders and gets nine years, and my son is innocent and got nine years! Corruption within the judicial system has sky rocketed. I am starting an organization that will fund people to be able to hire good attorneys. A good defense fund may help many who are innocent to go home. The people who committed the crimes were released from jail. He is in Chino now two weeks.

You want a story from an articulate and brilliant 32 year old who doesn’t belong and trying to navigate the gang system and was smart enough not to go into protective custody for not ratting out a drug using dorm mate at Norco? He’s your man. Oh, the stories I’ve heard. Blessings to all the lost ones there from a middle class mamma.

Unfamiliar with the justice system over there I just hope hes ok.I hear the sentences presented there are way too harsh for most. I wish they could have just deported my uncle and let him serve his time at home. He really has no one there. And hes missed his fathers funeral. Now were afraid his mother may never get to see him before she passes.

My name is Jason Rutherford. I am the guy on the bunk in the last photo. It was a pleasure to be noticed by the world as this growing problem swells out of proportion. I have been in and out of prison for well over a decade. Ive seen alot of changes occure inside those walls of insanity. I seen some changes for the better, some for the worse, and now in this day, Ive seen my own release again, with the California Department Of Corruptions dumping me out onto the street to be homeless and wondering what next? This is a huge problem that occures everyday in this state, and yet nobody addresses it. You can have a million plans to do good, but once discouraged by your parole officer’s additude, and lack of recources, most will end up back in that cesspool once more. Then you have those that have no remaining family members in the state of california. left alone without support. leaving california would increase their chances for success. However, it could become very difficult to transfer if the state don’t except you, or california denys you. so then what? well. You will be returned to the county of your commitment, or last legal residence whichever they chose. That could mean for some of us to return to our old stomping grounds. Gang members dropped right back on the streets they got that prison number. This is absurd. California would be better off without its worthless parole system. Parole does nothing to stop recidivism, does not deture crime, or prevent it. It is a huge babysitting bill that is impossible to monitor,or keep up with. Just think of Amber Nicklas, ask her how the california Parole system saved her from getting kidnapped. It didnt, in fact the child molester’s Parole agent even met her on occasion.Do away with Parole. It is a waste of money and is pointless. There should only be a parole system in place for those getting out after serving life sentences. Child molesters hould start getting gassed, and Rapist aswell. You just saved a fortune with that.
Oh and by the way, that last line about prison rape is exaggerated. It dont happen on the G.P. yards. Their is a strick policy against homosexuality enforced by the mexican and white races. but on the Protective custody Yard, like the one in Chino prison gym, who knows whats happens over their and who cares. There scumbags.
