That's a shame. He should be doing hard physical labor for 12-16 hrs/day. Prison should not be pleasant. You've just verified that we waste our tax dollars carrying dirtbags around on pillows. Sickening

Trust me that place is no bed of roses its dirty and disgusting and the food is spoiled half the time. and for you mr silly I wish you were there as your comments are insensitive and I bet your attitude would change if you were ever sent there or even had someone you love sent there. and Tanya a prison is a prison and yes it is a very bad place to be in! if he tells you different then he does ot want you to be worried about him. recognize that. as far as the classes go, most are for sh*t however the education dept is probably one of the very few bright spots in there. they do try to help you if you want to further educate yourself. and yes it is what it is.

That would be MRS. Silly, thank you. "Insensitive"???? Give me a break. We're talking about CRIMINALS. No, I'm not concerned about me or my family being sent to prison, because,(and this is really simple if you have a brain and aren't a stupid criminal) we don't break the law. We're not criminals. Prison should be a BRUTAL place to be, as unpleasant as it can be made. Perhaps then low-life criminals would be less eager to break the law and go back when they're released. Prison should consist of a minimum of 12 hrs/day of hard labor with minimal food, zero medical care, and no TV, basketball, etc. to entertain the animals. Work them hard enough and they won't have the energy to et up to foolishness.

Too funny. All the crimninals claim they're innocent. It really is VERY simple. Even an idiot like you should be able to comprehend it. If you don't want to go to prison, don't commit crimes. I've never known ANY law-abiding citizen to be "wrongly accused". Dirtbags sometimes get accused of something that they didn't do, but they did something else at least as bad that they didn't get caught at, so it all evens out. Truly law abiding people who live normal lives have no contact with law enforcement except for social events and community activities. Perhaps a speeding ticket, and if you get more than one of those in a lifetime, you're an idiot. Again, I'm not concerned about me or a loved one being "falsely accused" and imprisoned. We obey the law and needn't fret about such nonsense.

You think you can insult me by calling me granny? No grandkids yet (my kids are busy getting advanced degrees and obeying the law), but I can't wait. DNA has proved innocence in a FEW cases, not a lot (that's two words, illiterate). If you spent more time improving yourself instead of crybabying because you got caught and have to pay the consequences, you'd be of more value to society along with improving your own lot. No, I haven't committed any crimes. Most people don't. You have a skewed perception of how people live because you are a criminal. Only you can change your wacko ideas and turn your life around. Or, you can continue to be a dirtbag and wallow in self pity because you got caught. Up to you, son.

No I do not think I can insult you, because you are to thick skinned to even feel compassion let alone the feeling of being insulted. but ignorance is bliss so just remain in your own little safe world. but do realize that our government railroads people all the time and it is because of naive people just like you.

I am afraid there are very few that read them. I always check back for updates. Did you know that when an inmate dies there, that the FMC sends them to the Lexington hospital in cuffs and restraints,
and that they do not pronounce them dead there at the FMC as to not have a high death rate statistic. We used to watch out the windows and see them get taken away by ambulance. it was a sick feeling really.
