you work you're way from level 1 or 2 witch have a lot personal visits rec rooms and the list goes on but if you stay in trouble or are always causing it you can and will end up at a level 6 23 hours locked down 1 hour rec in a cage 8 by 10 so if u can take a first offender and help him change his life for the better and be a help to others instead of staying in trouble we all benefit and also some people don't understand you treat some one like a dog they will finally bite you if we can fix our young why are people complaining its cheaper to fix the problem than throw them away if they are willing to change

A good friend of mine spent 3 years there and said it wasn't horrible-but it is a jail with prison characteristics; mind your own business, follow the established code and treat people right and you will make it out a better person. He made it and is productive, positive and much better off-but he made these choices on his own and used the program as a tool.

Regardless of the bias and opinions of the comments on here, one thing is true-the criminal justice system is broken and needs major overhaul. This mindset of "lock em away, they deserve it" must change. The bulk of the convicted will re-enter society much like a high school graduate-with little more than they entered the sytem with.

Many of the solutions will be met by the free market through vocational training, interpersonal skills and re-entry programs. For the smaller minority that need to be down for life-we still should create an environment that is conducive to healing and wholeness verses being pushed around by miserable government employees who are only living for a pension and their free time-and yes, there are still some good guards and goverment employees..... but overall, the system is broken and failing.

That is what you are there. The first 3 months you do volunteer work at habitat for humanity or red cross if you stay out of trouble. The last 3 months you work at a furniture factory or tysons chicken factory. You make $8 an hour and pay rent. You come home with about 2000 if you spend $50 a week. You can get money sent to you and can write and talk everyday. Visitation is twice a month and you can hold hands, but only hug or kiss at the end. There are two large rooms with four rows of bunkbeds each. There is a tv and basketball court and weights. Working out definitely keeps your mind positive while there. There are books to get from library but no computer access. There are church services every sunday, which even if you are not religious gives you something to break up routine. The food is awful. Mystery meat and peanut butter sandwich everyday for lunch. Eggs and toast for breakfast and various for dinner. You will always be hungry. Any food is good food. Bathrooms are awful too. Four sinks, shitters, and showers. Find odd times to go if you want privacy. Especially before people get back from hanging chickens. No need to smell like em if you dont get paid. Its better than jail or prison overall and gives you a chance to improve if you want to. Lots of temptations though. People smuggle lots of stuff in...tobacco, which is $1 a cig or dip, fake weed spice, which is $5 a joint, subutex for opiate fans, $20 a whole or $5 a 1/8...it all comes through one way or should i say out...use your imagination. So there is opportunity to better yourself or be better at doing what got you there to begin with. Most people here are users or dealers and there is rehab before you start work. Typically you go to detention first and they seperate the dealers from users. Love the substance or the life.
