CALIFORNIA PRISONS

Folsom Telegraph

It’s been nearly 50 years since Johnny Cash performed his legendary concerts at Folsom Prison, when the iconic song “Folsom Prison Blues” put the prison – and the city – on the international map.

Today, we are honoring one of the world’s most famous country musicians and his influence on the City of Folsom with the Johnny Cash Trail Art Experience, which will include eight larger-than-life public art pieces, a three-acre park honoring the ‘Man in Black,’ and two-and-a-half miles of paved Class 1 trails.

In October 2014, the City of Folsom opened the first segment of the Johnny Cash Trail and the iconic pedestrian bridge at Folsom Lake Crossing, designed to resemble the prison’s east gate towers.

STOCKTON — In spring 2008, multiple law enforcement authorities held a joint news conference at the Stockton Police Department to describe a months-long criminal investigation dubbed Operation Monster, culminating in 15 raids and multiple arrests earlier that day.

Among the weapons, drugs and cash on display for the media was an organizational chart showing who was in charge of the local NorteƱos, a notorious criminal gang ultimately controlled by the Nuestra Familia prison gang.

A federal judge in San Francisco on Tuesday, April 25 blocked a portion of President Donald Trump’s executive order that called for denying funds to areas that defy U.S. immigration authorities.

U.S. District Judge William Orrick ruled that the Trump administration could not impose restrictions on the so-called sanctuary jurisdictions that have policies to protect undocumented immigrants, given that the president does not have the authority to dictate new federal spending policies.
