Incarceration reports have become publicly inaccessible while rebranding California’s Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation website. Kamala Harris is said to call attention to her arrest record from candidate for 2020 election Tulsi Gabbard.
According to the report:
Twice a year, the CDCR releases information about the number of new individuals incarcerated in the California prison system as part of its “Offender Data Points” series. These reports provide important information on demographics, sentence length, offense type, and other figures relevant to criminal justice and incarceration.
Until recently, these reports were publicly available at the CDCR’s website. A search using archive.org’s Wayback Machine reveals that as of April 25, 2019—the most recent indexed date—ODP reports were available dating back to the spring of 2009. As of August 2019, the same web page now serves only a single ODP report, the one for Spring 2019. The pre-2019 reports have been removed.
Gabbard urges Harris to apologize to the “people who suffered under [her] reign as prosecutor” at Wednesday debates.
“I want to bring the conversation back to the criminal justice system that is disproportionately, negatively affecting black and brown people today. Senator Harris says she’s proud of her record as a prosecutor and that she’ll be a prosecutor president, but I’m deeply concerned about this record of Senator Harris’,” said Gabbard.
CDCR assistant secretary for communications Jeffrey Callison denounced that the modification had nothing in common with the Harris campaign but sanctioned by California law towards web-access standards.
“Making our website fully compliant was a significant and ongoing undertaking. It required a redesign of the look and feel of the website, and a need to evaluate all of the thousands of documents and other files that were linked to our website,” Callison commented.
Callison asserts that the old reports have the access by firstname.lastname@example.org and any deletion will be re-established.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson did not believe officials blaming them for “making that information very hard to find.”
