I hear it all the time. “San Quentin is unique,” “If only we could take what’s happening here and reproduce it in other prisons,” blah, blah, blah.
You know what? That was kind of overdramatic. Let me start again.
I have yet to meet anyone here who doesn’t think San Quentin is the best prison in the state, and possibly on the country. As a person who has been here for nearly six years, I can confirm that the opportunities at this institution make this far-and-away the best prison experience I’ve ever had. Of course, that’s kind of a low bar, isn’t it?
