FTR I don’t think Irv deserved to die, and placing him in San Quentin’s genpop was tatamount to a death sentence.
Irv Rubin was set up like a bowling pin. Did a year in solitary and died the day of his hearing. The jailers said he ‘cut his own throat’ then he jumped off a balcony.
Oh, and by the way, I am one of those who believe that Pollard has done enough time. They should let him go.
