Strife in Pleasant Valley

In August and September of 1996, Pleasant Valley State Prison (PVSP, in California) had several incidents resulting in shots fired at unarmed prisoners. Three incidents on C yard with at least one serious bullet wound to a black prisoner.

There are four level three yards and a level one yard here at PVSP and all have had serious incidents and shots fired with resulting lockdowns and mass searches. The Fresno Bee has covered unrest, fights and shootings at Avenal, Corcoran, Tehachapi, Mule Creek and New Folsom, but seems to not get the "news" from PVSP. Thought you would be interested.
