CYA ain't nothing nice, but it's also not as dramatric as some make it seem. I first went when I was 12 in 1995, for a attempted murder/ robbery case. When you get sent you have to go to Norwalk which is the receiving/reception facility. They sent my young ass to Drake where I was the youngest but all my homeboys where up there and It was my dream to make it there since I was nine. That's the first time I ran in to everyone from everywhere, I mean this unit was pretty harsh for a first timer. I had to bunk up with this older cat from PJ Watts and this was the only place you bunk interracially and I'm from OTwsNC Insane Boys, which is located in SOuth Bay San Diego for does who didn't know. Truthfully, I picked up a lot of game from the blacks in Norwalk like some Blood from Skyline put me up on the pimp game and now homeboy got me three bitches strong and he's in Seattle with a flock of bitches. I earned my respect as the little rowdy rider ese with the "BS" tatted by his eye and I don't regret one moment. I then got transfered to Nelles which is located in Whittier and a young ese got his rid eon in there. I got stabbed by some Nortenos but they sucked and they were older because I strong armed some fag for his spank new nikes and walkman from NS GONZA and he was a bitch leva. So, I had to get my runback and the consequence of that was a new charge and then I was sent Paso Robles at 14. I started out in MORO then Los Oso west then they sent me to CAMBRIA which is similar to what homeboy was talking about in the second post a little cage for 23 hours a day and 1 hour of sitting in a chair. They kept threatening me to send me to the New Folsom or Pelican Bay but I didn't give a fuck because that would complete my goals, but they never did. CYA is pretty hard because you have young kids who go to state prisons and then sent back to YA and they usually run the entire facility like Pelican Bay. Now I'm tatted on my head, sleeved down, and crazier then before for mingling with real hoggs and killers. You just have to make the best of your time like learning some new shit about making and stacking chips. I'm not gloating but I hope I never become incarcerate dbecause there's some much money for all of us to make. I was just a dumb and ignorant child and if you have any more questions about me or the YOuth Auhtority System hit up big BANDIT from OTwsNC13.
