Interview with Sac Bee Reporter Who Uncovered Abuse in California Prisons

leave a comment »

The other day I linked to the Sacramento Bee‘s investigative report on abuses in the so-called “behavior modification units” in California’s prison system. A reader pointed out that the Bee reporter who broke the story, Charles Piller, recently gave an interview to Democracy Now. Audio and transcript are available here. In response to the Bee articles, Governor Schwarzenegger and state Senate leaders have announced an investigation into the BMUs. More blogging coverage is available at California Corrections Crisis.
