Now that the trailers have been reinstated with revised rules, anyone with a violent offense is excluded. If you have any violent or Class A infractions in the past five years or any drug related infractions in the last two years you are excluded. There are other stipulations in the new rules that I am not aware of due to my present situation in the IMU, but I can tell you that the changes made in a program that was once very beneficial to prisoners and their famines, and had more than 110 CBCC prisoners participating now has only 27 who are still eligible.
Days before we went to press with this issue there was an uprising at CBCC on April 16, 1995. We have no first-hand accounts of the uprising, but according to the Seattle Times the disturbance was limited to one living unit which was extensively damaged. The uprising was reportedly quelled after three hours by guards using stun grenades
