Inmates don't want Arnold to sell San Quentin


For most people, the chance to move from a decrepit and unsafe home to a spanking new, state-of-the-art home, would be a dream come true. But tell that to the inmates at San Quentin prison. For them it's a nightmare proposition.

In early May, Arnold Schwarzenegger, governor of California, floated the idea of selling San Quentin to help raise money for a battered state budget. Currently 5,000 prisoners "enjoy" prime beachfront property worth an estimated $2 billion. But even with the current cramped conditions -- the prison is meant to hold just over 3,000 prisoners -- inmates don't want to go.
