Although inmates at one California prison broke their fast and began eating on Wednesday, another prison solitary population decided to continue fasting. Across California, Wednesday began prisoners’ attempts to stop racial violence within The Walls.
About 300 prisoners at California Correctional Institute in Tehachapi, north of Los Angeles, also began refusing meals Wednesday. About 200 of them continued to refuse food Saturday.
Curiously, prison officials say they do not know what caused inmates to begin fasting.
