You mean the guy who asked a teenage boy to "suck my BoomStick" after the boy decided that his grass is nice to step on?

Or was it someone else? :scratch:

I worked in them for over ten years. Maximum, medium, minimum security, even spent a couple years as a drill instructor at a prison boot-camp. It would take a book to try to describe everything about life inside. I will say that you have to leave every social norm you've learned at the door and learn a whole new set of rules inside; rules and attitudes that allow you to survive in prison but that won't get you anywhere after you're released. As far as the danger to one's personal safety, I'd say that the population can be roughly divided into three general catagories: 10% are predators, 10% are prey and 80% are just doing their time without bothering anybody or being bothered. You want to be part of the 80% if you're smart.

It's just a family member who is in prison. He has major issues largely because emotionally he has not developed past childhood-- and when I went to visit him (despite not having ANYthing to do with his whole trial) he just waved that I leave...I am kinda scared what might happen to him in prison---> he's very easy to influence and really does not live in an "adult" world.

By being vulnerable. Predators sniff-out any weakness or vulnerability in people.

I knew someone from school, a very girlie-girl, and I didn't know her really well. But I noticed in a professional publication last summer that she had lost her professional license--for pleading no contest to two counts of DUI manslaughter. :o :sad: Anyway, she did a plea bargain for 5 years, with good behavior, out in 4. She's in a minimum security, women-only, prison that's supposedly faith-based and from the website, she's with other manslaughter convicts and drug people. I often wonder what her life is like.

That's one thing general population inmates usually have plenty of; time and access to recreational facilities. Motivated inmates get into the best shape of their lives in prison.

Hmm...

Well if i think of Sex starved, dangerous men...

Bright side - Big muscly men not afraid to indulge in each other's flesh :drool: :haha:

Down-side ... they will highly sexually frustrated and most likely be even more aggressive and dangerous. The confined spaces make this even worse.

A no go area for someone as delicate as I. *Pout*

Hel, why don't you tell us about your time on death row and getting gassed at San Quentin?

Hey, hon! It was such a great experience, a gal should be sentenced to death row more often. Basically, I had a 2,000 square foot trailor outside the prison that had air conditioning, a fully-stocked bar and gold-plated bathroom fixtures. I had custom-made linen prison "uniforms" lined in satin to hang well to show off my lovely figure. I had full theatrical make-up and $500 hairdo every morning before reporting to my "cell" and Robert Wise had champagne and caviar every afternoon at 3. The shoot was brutal in these conditions! Anyway, I hope I was able to translate to the public the hell it is to be on death row.

I don't know how you managed to survive. :o The closest I've been to a prison cell is the bottom left square on Hollywood Squares, squished between Shadow Stevens and Jim J. Bullock.

Not a joke. Most prisons have weight lifting facilities, gyms, outdoor tracks & baseball diamonds. I've even seen tennis courts & handball courts. For the most part, inmates don't have easy access to alcohol & a lot of drugs to tear their bodies down. They eat three square meals a day and sleep on a regular schedule. They have a lot of time on their hands. Plus, physical fitness is a status symbol, especially built-up muscles. There's a lot of time and social pressure to work-out. Guys tend to come out of prison "buff", then throw it all away within a matter of months when they return to their old ways.

What can I tell you. Nobody ever asked my opinion when the Department put all those facilities in the prisons. On one hand, I'm not too thrilled that the school my boys attend can't afford the kinds of recreational facilities our prisons have. On the other hand, I recognize the benefits of physical fitness in terms of good health and self-esteem. Good health saves money on health services in the long run. Self-esteem is an important part of rehabilitation. Plus, it provides a positive outlet for inmates to work-off some of their pent-up energy and make productive use of their time.
