Heman G. Stark Califonia Youth Authority facility will become an adult prison

This is a followup to something I posted earlier, after the Chino prison riots. Some of the inmates were housed at the Heman G. Stark facility, which seemed to worry people who were concerned for the poor kids at Stark. Never mind that one of those poor kids once murdered a worker and sent her body to a trash dump. You're probably safer at the grownup prison.

Well, hot on the heels of the Chino prison riot is the news that the Heman G. Stark facility will undergo a change.

Bernie Warner, the director of the state Department of Juvenile Justice, said Thursday that Heman G. Stark Youth Correctional Facility will be outfitted to handle adults from the state's overcrowded system.

The 400 youth wards at Stark will be moved to other facilities in Southern California, Warner said.

And the mayors of neighboring Chino and Chino Hills are worried. We'll see what happens.
