In medium security prisons, they have 2 tv rooms. One is called "the quiet day room"

And yes, there is HBO, i served time years back.

The maximum security prisons let you have a 13" tv in your cell, and that only has 13 channels.

But yes, HBO in mediums.

Johnny was a good friend of mine when he lived on Taylor Ave. We were the same age. I remember his sister Penny too. When he was murdered, it changed my life as a little kid. Till this day, I think of him and remember his smile. He is in a better place, way better than this crazy earth.

Johnny Lee Bell was murdered in about 1978 or so, as far as I can remember. They found his body in the basement of an apt. building. He had been raped and then shot, I think.
It was tragic, and scared everyone who lived in that neighborhood for years after.I've been trying to find any original news reports about it as well.
He was seven or eight and lived in Cornhill, around Miller St. or Howard Ave. possibly.

It was in 1982. The African American boy had been seen skating through the neighborhood one evening and then he disappeared. Corn Hill residents were going door-to-door looking for him. He was found 2 months later in the basement of a 3 story home. He was shot and had been molested. The culprit was Gene Carter, a long time resident. There was a mix up because there were 2 men by that name and they got a tip and arrested the wrong man at first. They released him and then someone smelled a foul odor coming from the house. After searching, they found the boy. Pictures of Johnny had been sent throughout the community showing him with a 4-5 inch afro. Two weeks after the discovery of Johnny, Johnny's friend, a nine year old, hung himself.
