“In a recent OpEd, CDCR Secretary Beard, defends his agency’s use of torture, and justifies it by vilifying and dehumanizing some of its victims,” as law professor Caitlin Kelly observes. Fortunately Beard’s piece has not gone unanswered. Here are three responses:
“A Response to CDCR Secretary Beard,” by Caitlin Kelly Henry in California Correctional Crisis
“Another Reply to Beard by Berkeley Student and Former SHU Inmate Steven Czifra,” also in California Correctional Crisis
- “Indefinite solitary confinement violates human rights,” by Angela Y. Davis in the Sacramento Bee.
