Thanks for taking a stand and saying something.....my son has been there for almost 4 years and regardless of what the media is saying, still....nothing has changed there...just last week he told me some very disturbing things....until the day he is released I try to keep faith that he survives...mentally and physically. I wish the best for you and hope that you do not have too many flashbacks from that place.

Unless you know how my son has been raised, you have zero to stand on....the fact of the matter is that you obviously have blinders on and live in your own "perfect" world.

The likelihood of you not having a loved one in prison is highly unlikely! So before you start making comments about other peoples loved ones maybe you should pray because even God would not allow his children to be treated this way!! So I will pray for you because God know you need it!

My son was there for 3 years for a non violent crime. I have never seen heard or seen the horrible things that happen in this place. This needs to be shut down!! It needs to begin with the administration and the so called guards there! Although there is a huge turnover in their staff, the majority of problems are contributed by the staff and their croocked and unethical behavior and interaction with inmates!
I agree if you do the crime you have to pay the price, however we should expect to some degree the safety of these kids. You have some there for a year and some will be locked for life. Those for life have nothing to loose and their violent behavior is extreme due to their youth. Very sad for those who want to do right and just do their time.

I could be wrong, don't really know, but since the dark days of the dungeons of London and Rome, prisons were not intended to be a "Holiday Inn." I'm not condoning the ill-run administrative wrongs that are supposedly taking place but adult or teenager, they're in prison for doing something illegal, tried and sentenced and now have to pay for it. They'd better come out better for it.

None of my children have ever committed a criminal act and By the Grace of God, I don't have a child in this awful place. However during a recent visit to Mississippi, I heard a radio ad for a bonding company that claimed 1 in 4 people in Mississippi will need a bondsman in any given 12 month period - ONE IN FOUR? WOW! Perhaps its just me, but that created horrible visions of innocent people facing trumped up charges, just so the "system" could make money and I immediately thought that perhaps the outgoing Governor of MS knew something we don't.
If you can read of atrocities against anyone, especially young people and the comment you posted is all you can opine - my heart goes out to you and I will say an extra prayer for you, because obviously your raising lacked a little something too.

Thanks for acknowledging those of us who have children in the "system". I do not mean to be too upfront, however, when you stated that "your raising lacked something"....you are 100% incorrect in saying that. How do you know? Do you know the "raising" of each and every son/daughter who is in prison? Do you know their charges, what the sentencing was, who was and is at the backbone of the entire system in MS? It is a bureaucratic game and it all boils down to who you are and where you come from in the state of MS. Every single person from the governor on down to the people that "run" the prisons are in it for one thing and one thing only....money...greed....NO ONE Cares whether my son or anyone else's son dies while in "their" hands. NO ONE o.k. If they did, then obviously the recidivism rate in MS would not be as it is and certainly no one in prison would die (suicide or otherwise)...Unless you have "been there", then I do not feel you have relevancy to even post anything....

Justice; I apologize if my comment was unclear, as I said I am new to this and unsure exactly how this works so please give me the oportunity to clarify. My comment regarding raising was specifically intended as a reply to "Fitus" and that post about "raising them right", my post simply states that in my opinion "Fitus's" raising lacked the essential element of compassion which should be part of every human being. I completely agree that you have every right to be outraged by the situation. Furthermore I believe that you are absolutely correct that unless someone has experienced a similar event they do not truely understand it; however we can still feel compassion and sympothy for those who must endure trajedy of any kind, but especially those where children are involved.

Lynn, Thank you for taking the time to clarify what was mentioned earlier. Not to many people in our society today have respect or even care enough to reply, so thank you. Also, it is rare for some people to have compassion or sympathy for something they have not been exposed to. Most of the individuals making inaccurate hard core comments have no idea how badly it grips one heart and soul. They do not take into consideration that those incarcerated are human beings....those that have loved ones incarcerated are human beings....WE ALL have emotions...feelings...etc etc. Thanks again....

Lets remember what something wrong can mean! All kids make mistakes and all kids fight, so if you believe because they may have been one of those kids, instead try to have compassion for those kids who come from bad homes or may have just simply had a fight with someone and not only are they learning but they are witnessing and experiencing a world of hell. Yes it is wrong to put our hands on anyone one, but that does not mean now they deserve abuse and terror due to a fight which most boys will have. Of course I can only speak for my case not for others. May god bring peace and compassion into your life because if you just think things are black and white then you are sadly mistaken!

Hey Jons,(right above). I think you've read something into my post that was not intended. Just saying that, sure, I was younger once, fought, got into trouble and had to pay for it. Everyone should! I do feel for the homeless and maybe less fortunate, but don't use it for an excuse or pry bar. Live, learn and .....never make the same mistake twice. If a person does, he/she is not worth caring about, let alone spending any of our tax money on.

it's been my experience that the "green dot" card runs the cmcf, and yes it's not just inmates getting paid. I have a daughter there. the conditions are bad for men and women alike, but the women are sadly neglected, and medical care is at the soul descretion of whoever happens to be in charge at the time you make your" three" request. the task force recommendations are up to be voted on this session in the legislature, if they are approved, it will help with reform, as far as the crooked officials go, I just don't know, the illiteracy rate is pretty high, and the pay is lousy, and that is a bad combination.
