    Well sounds like Gavin [Newsom] needs to make it mandatory for all prisoners to wear face masks and if they don’t comply let them die.

      I’m wonder, now that Newsom has made it mandatory to wear face masks in California in most situations do they make prisoners wear them too?  If not, why not?

      Chris, have you seen the video of prisoners purposely trying to infect themselves with COVID?

      Chris, welcome to the Vanguard. We could use some more conservative voices on here. I hope you stick around.

        Maybe Craig Ross will make a comeback?

        How about Hewitt Dixon…..he played running back for the Raiders.
