n.— «Some have been so desperate to do violence against their jailers that they’ve patiently stored the elastic from their underwear to use in constructing makeshift crossbows; others save their feces and urine to fling at the guards, a practice known as “gassing.”» —“Is Pelican Bay Too Tough?” by Howard Mintz in Pelican Bay State Prison, Del Norte County The Recorder (California) Sept. 19, 1991.
