    Dear Rain, My heart breaks for you and I completely understand everything you are going through. I also have been living this nightmare for 17yrs. I also had “the rose colored glasses” about our justice system!! Nothing could be worse than ones child being sick & not being able to see them. Over the years at different prison’s my son has been very ill, his request for care go unheard or he is told he’s fine. He has also called and told me of these types of things and I can clearly hear that he is sick. He once had Valley fever lost 25 pounds, running such a high fever that his tongue turned black. Just recently he had bacterial pneumonia and passed out in the shower; he had been requesting to see a Dr. for over a week! They took him to the hospital and was to see a Dr. for a follow up a week later, that follow up never came. When he told the nurse he was to have new x-rays; her reply was “people get pneumonia all the time…live with it!!

    Very sadly I had a very good friend that my family has been helping for the last 17 yrs, my son had met him when they were together in county before prison. Mike was his name. I say was because he died Jan 15, 2011 at a Bakersfield hospital. Mike had been telling me for years of not being able to get medical care and how if he pushed the envelope the things they would do to him. I don’t want to make this a long story but finally when he had to be rushed to the hospital for surgery, they found two types of cancer, that was a year ago. His last year of life was horrible & we couldn’t see him because he was to weak to come out to visiting. They sent him back to his dorm which you know is no place for a sick person. He was 6’2 & only weighed 138lbs. He was to weak to bath or walk with a tray to chow, if it hadn’t been for some very nice men helping take care of him; he wouldn’t of lasted that long! When they finally moved him to “what they called a medical dorm” no different just all sick people treated the same way!! Mike was to carry all his belonging and walk to another building, Mind you he still was recovering from being cut open! When he dropped his T.V, typewriter, guitar,radio/cd player & cd’s the other inmates around scrambled to steal what they could while two guards just looked on and did nothing!! When I heard that I was so mad & I hurt for him…I just cried. My husband happened to be his attorney & there was nothing that could be done. After that Mike stopped calling because he was to weak to stand in line to use thew phone. He could no longer write beause he developed parkinson’s disease. For one year we had been trying to get him out on a compassonate release program to Canada where he was from and had family and a wonderful fiance. But no he was a lifer! But that Lifer “mike” Had taken a plea with the D.A. saying he would only do 11 more years since he had done 3yrs in Canada and another 2yrs in county, so he agreed.
    When my husband did his parole hearing in Dec 2009, Mike had a total of almost 22yrs; on a 15yr to life w/parole. Mike NEVER had a 115 or 128. He went in with a seventh grade education and at his parole hearing he had the most exceptional programming. He had earned two Phd’s, a Master’s & a B.S. There was no reason he shouldn’t have been given a date, they gave him a 5yr. denial. But that’s ANOTHER part of this broken down corrupt Calif Prison System! The only people that know it are the loved ones that are doing the time along with their son’s, husbands, brothers and so on. NO one else seems to care! They think…they should be treated like that. They are in for one rude awaking; the people of CA are all one foot away from being locked up. My son went to board; my husband by his side as his attorney, two yrs ago the board said if he continued this outstanding programing he would be going home soon! We where all so excited & he was given a 2yr denial. So he worked very hard on more self help & parole plans, he had everything. He even had two crono’s from C.O.’s which we’ve never seen handed out. The hearings last normally no more than two hours; that day my son’s lasted almost 7hours. The Parole board beat him up mentally that entire time, in the end they gave him a 7yr denial. Everyone including the prison staff was in shock over this! If the family shows up it’s anywhere now from a 5-15yr denial, if no one shows up and they’ve done what their suspose to, they give them a 3yr. Now that the Feds say inmates have no constitutional rights to be paroled, those that have been released may have to be returned to prison. It all make me sick…I would leave this state if it wasn’t for my son. He was 20 when he went in and he’s 37 now, in another 7yrs he’ll be 44! How can the parole board just keep adding years because they want too? His Psych report said he was as low to violence as the average person walking the street. Those two commissioner’s, one was an ex-warden and mean as hell…didn’t have degree’s to say different. And they wonder why our buget is what it is. Rain anytime you need me to stand with you & hold a sign, I’ll be there. I pray for your son’s health & keep fighting because that is all we can do. Thank you for hearing my story, nobody else seems to care anymore!
