Question to Glenn Langohr: Should California Governor Jerry Brown Negotiate with The California Prisoners Who Are Participating in the Hunger Strike?

Victoria Whitney from Al Jazzera America asked this question to former prisoner Glenn Langohr, who spent time in Solitary before becoming a best selling author.

Glenn stated: “The Governor probably won’t negotiate because it is to his political detriment to do so. He has a number of District Attorney’s with a 99% conviction rate waiting for him to look weak on crime, so they can seize upon it and say, “‘I wouldn’t have done that.'”

“Should he? Yes. If this issue was about animal cruelty, he would…If it were about global warming, he would…If this human torture were happening in prisons in Russia, he would speak out against it.”

“Here’s why he should negotiate with them, the path for inmates to get placed in Solitary Confinement isn’t regulated by a court of law. They are asking to be treated like humans, not dogs.”

Glenn Langohr spent 10 years in California prisons on drug charges with 4 years in Solitary Confinement. He wrote Prison Riot to shine a light on how an inmate can be sent to Solitary and become mislabeled and get stuck in the system, without a court of law to oversee the process. Prison Riot is based on his true story where he was involved in a riot where northern Mexican inmates rushed the southern Mexican inmates and he and one other White inmate happened to be in the way. While in the hole, Solitary Confinement, the Prison Administration assumed he was a southern Mexican inmate and the label stayed with him for 6 months until he was sent to another prison. At that prison, the prison administration placed him back in Solitary for another 7 months while trying to pressure him into saying he was part of a Gang.
