I just got this mail from my son so I am forwarding you his message.
Yes the FCI is on lockdown. Mex's went at it over there.They said about 150 of them.
Now you know what is going on. Talk to you later.
Thank you Pam,
My son was finally able to write.I did find out they were in lock down.I am beginning to wonder if FCI is any better than USP.My son does not usually start anything, but you never know what they may get drawn into in a place like that.I did not get any notice when some one writes on here like I used to. I re signed up.I like this site.
What did you mean by units on the e-mail.My son never told me about this.

It costs the inmate 5.00 per every 100 units they use on the e-mail site. I am not sure what the units stand for if it is per words or letters or what, but if I can find out, I will send you a post, Glad he's out of lockdown.

There was a lot of trouble recently in the penitentiary with the ABT. Many ended up in ad-seg and others got sent over to the FCI in an effort to try and water down their numbers. While in the FCI they again set off trouble. Many have since (late last week) been transferred out to other places. A handful have made their way down to Coleman II in Florida.

John,
What is ABT and ad-seg? Why would they transfer someone to other places?

ABT - is Aryan Brotherhood of Texas (a bunch of nazi skinhea losers).

Ad-seg - is administrative segregation (the hole, solitary confinement, etc...)

Others would be transferred in an attempt to breakup the gangs or if someone wants out of a gang (for that person's protection).

My son said when he was transferred to FCI, from USP,about 9 months ago, there were about 150 to 200 people in this FCI, and now he said it is pretty much full.
They keep moving more in.

Trying to break up the gangs in the main house. The only thing they're going to end up doing is allowing the gangs to branch out and recruit new members in the medium houses.

I was wondering where you get your info? I check the pollock local news, but don't seem to find the data that you do. Could you tell me your source(s) so I am able to check into status, etc? The Lockdown site from the BOP never seems to be up to date. Thanks,

USP POLLOCK, is on what they call a partial lock down, they keep trying to integrate the population back together since the riot, but it has proved unsuccessful due to the stabbings and fights that break out each time integration is introduced.

Just a ole retired Hack here. Dont know if anyone cares, but gonna throw my two cents in. After 25 yrs, there are a few things I do know about prisons, Federal, State, etc, dont matter.

Not all inmates lie. Not all staff tell the truth.

There are good and bad in every profession, prison staff included. However, I will say the BOP works hard to rid itself of the infestion of bad or dirty staff. Nothing a real hack hates worse than a dirty staff member.

Sorry for hurting the feelings of some of the mothers on this post, but the bottom line is this. No inmate ever goes directly to a Federal USP just for drug use, or even selling drugs. There is much more to this story than just drugs. The only way a inmate gets to a USP directly from the streets is if he has a very long history of violence. The only other way to get there is to start out at a lower level prison, screw up getting lots and lots of incident reports for rule infractions to get sent up a level. And even then, if there isnt violence involved, the BOP will not send a inmate up in level. So if you son is in a USP, he is a violent violent individual.

Lastly, Pollock will never be shut down...they might and could do as they have done in Beaumont in the future, send out the Pen inmates, replace them with mediums, give admin a chance to retrain some of the retards they have working there, and then start sending Pen inmates back, and replace the mediums with High security inmates. But the bottom line, they built it as a USP, it will always be a USP. Costs too much to build a Pen, to use it as a FCI for any length of time. Further, all the Pens are pretty much full, we need Pen space.

Lastly, Gotti...your a moron....I am betting you are actually a young know it all rookie that is just spouting off...Kinda remind me of that punk office on the Green Mile...Ole Percy...lol...

And...AD SEG...No such thing. The proper terminology is Administrative Detention, or Disciplinary Segregation.

The pen had another killing! They were on a "food strike" and someone took a lunch while on lockdown, and when they came off lockdown, people found out and "stompped" the guy to death! I am sooo glad that I am not there anymore!. I will mail you again in the am.

LOL...John...ur a trip. You been in prison before, you know how it works. Hell, when you were locked up, before you died, you were paying protection money to keep from getting whipped.

Taking up just a little for Pollock guards...well, there is normally one one in a housing unit...the ratio....hmmmn, probally 1 to 132 or so...cant be everywhere at once.

Lastly, from what I see, hell, the pollock hacks are scared of their own population...there are videos on the net showing that...scared to death...wimps. Before I retired, worked in alot of joints, never seen staff so scared.

Whats different than a USP and an FCI? My boyfriend was sent straight to FCI Pollock for selling. He had no major priors. No reason for them not to put him in a lower security level prison. The judge gave him the maximum sentance he could. I just dont understand. He did what he felt he had to do to help his family. Never any malicious intent.
