  1. When this RAT is caught and they do have video cameras there, he will get assault with a deadly weapon (attempted murder) and his life will start over at one of our many CDCs that have vacany; San Quientin, Vacaville, CRC, Soledad, Folsom, Corcoran or take your pick. This rat will now become someone’s PET!
