why not turn it into a MOTEL.. That would be cool. We could all stay in the same cells as murderers and rapists. woo hoo.

I believe that it would be really awesome to go on a tour. Do they offer tours yet? I like going through old buildings and houses. I'v always wanted to go into the old Sinking fork elementary school on Hopkinsville rd. Any ideas of who owns it now??

I would say it is youngest getting in trouble time after time than maybe this would be a good idea for them and maybe it wouldn't, I've just been in some trouble before myself and locked up wasn't a joke. I can say one time was enough for me.

i went to wkctc and we went on tour there for american government, it was neat to go, but the inmates feel like their being shown in a circus, and are pretty vocal about letting you know. I cant say I blame them.

I dont care if you are pissed i would still like to spend 48 hours in the KSP just to see what it is like. I have murderers in my family so i know how to deal with people like that so no i dont think they would "EAT ME ALIVE".

I actually want to sit in the electric chair where people have been electrocuted. I want to take exact measurements of the electric chair so i can build one myself.

How is Eddyville? I have son in Lee Adjustment. He is thinking of transferring there. It is closer to home. I have heard it has changed. Eddyville used to be bad. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

So would I!

And I'd want a picture of myself sitting in the electric-chair, and I'd want to take home a T-Shirt that said "I was strip-searched and figer-printed at the old Kentucky State Penitentiary in Eddyville!"

Well I work there now, and I know that it isn't that bad of a place to visit. Turn it into a bed and breakfast and get some more tourist dollars in lyon county. that and build a REAL max prison somewhere else

Bill Cunningham has written a couple books about the "Castle". How it was built and if I remember correctly he didn't show it as a pretty picture.

I find nothing cool or funny about that place. I don't believe I'd take a tour of it.

Are you sceered???

Im not sceered.

Like i said...i would like to spend 48 hours there to see what it is like.
I want to sit in the electric chair to see what it is like knowing that im sitting in the exact same chair wher murderers and rapists were electrocuted.

And i also want to eat the prison food to see what it tastes like.

tellmemore = one sick puppy!

The first night you'd be cryin' like a little girl.

You say you want to know what it feels like?
You still wouldn't know, because you would always know that when 48 hrs went by YOU would get out.
The prisoners don't have that feeling.
So I say again, you STILL wouldn't know!
