Does his special "reading machine" also twist the scriptures for him, or does he have to do that manually?
Probably a combination of both since he is the ultimate master scripture twister. That must be one worn-out "reading machine" between scripture twisting and porn pics.

I hafta wonder how much he paid that kid to punch him, so he can get back in ISO. W/ his pedophilia record, he has got to be scared shitless of General Population.

Altho, he does know how prison life works. Like Charlie Manson, alamo has been in and out of numerous Institutions for criminal activity since he was a kid.

Wouldn't surprise me a bit if he had his "wife" visitors smuggle him some drugs to use as jail house currency. Or offer cons and gangs on the outside, money and possibly some underage sex.

Tony Alamo in isolation in prison
Evangelist placed there after a fight
Evangelist Tony Alamo is in isolation at the federal prison in Tucson, where he is serving a 175-year term for sex crimes, according to his lawyer.
Attorney John Wesley Hall Jr. of Little Rock said prison officials placed Alamo in the special unit after a physical confrontation with another inmate ((( and allegations Alamo made verbal threats to harm prosecutors and others connected with his criminal case.)))
“He’s a crime victim and they locked him in the hole,” Hall said.“That guy must really be proud of himself to beat up a blind, 76-year-old man.”
Hall said he is uncertain as to what caused the altercation but thinks Alamo was attacked.
“I’m not sure of the extent of his injuries,” Hall said.
Hall said he is concerned that Alamo’s diabetes is not being properly managed in the special unit and said Alamo has not been allowed the use of his eyeglasses or the machine he needs to “read the Bible.”
“He can’t see a punch coming to duck,” Hall said.
Hall said Alamo’s seeing machine is in storage at the prison despite a promise from officials to position it in the library for his use.
Hall said Alamo has had to give the combination to his locker to other inmates because he can’t read the numbers on the tumbler.
Hall said Alamo has been confined in the isolation unit for at least 60 days.
“There are a number of reasons an inmate could be placed in segregation,” said Bureau of Prisons spokesman Edmond Ross.
Ross said the “special housing unit” is like “a jail inside a prison” where inmates are locked in their cells for most of the day.
Ross said a disciplinary infraction or a pending investigation into a disciplinary matter can lead to placement in the unit. Inmates can also be assigned to the unit if they need protection.
“It’s hard to say,” Ross said when asked abou the typical length of stay in the special housing unit.“It could be short, just a few days, or it could be weeks or months depending on the circumstances of the individual.”
Ross said BOP policy prevents disclosure of specific information concerning an inmate’s status or disciplinary record.
According to a recent post on the Website hosted by Tony Alamo Christian Ministries, Alamo is a “political prisoner.”
“The true reason for Pastor Alamo’s imprisonment is exposing the one world government cult,” the Website said.“He is being held in the ‘hole’ for no reason. He cannot make phone calls. His incoming and outgoing mail is rarely received in a reasonable amount of time. The one world government cult and media will use all means to silence the truth and deceive the whole world.”
Alamo’s phone privileges were suspended for more than 400 days in March because he was attempting to conduct business over the phone, according to previous interviews with Hall and a former Alamo attorney.
Inmates are prohibited from running an enterprise within a federal prison.
Alamo, whose real name is Bernie LaZar Hoffman, was convicted in July 2009 in Texarkana on all 10 counts in a federal indictment accusing him of bringing five girls he wed across state lines for sex.
He was moved from a downtown Texarkana jail to the Arizona lockup (Tucson Federal Max Security) in February.
I like it, I love it, give him some more of it!

tony alamo in a scuffle? Am sure the ole man was not the one on top.....aint no kolbeks in there to stand in for a pedophile.

Maybe an uppercut would serve a real purpose on the ole boys jaw, releasing some finances in the way of falling fake and expensive implanted pearly whites. Then he can be put on a list for some really poor sustitute replacements that will never come in his lifetime. Gumming it where he is, is the signature of a losing proposition. C'est la vie!

Just goes to show the ole boy should have been paying those taxes for his own social security, so that in the twilight of his life he might of had a safety net instead of being a full blown pedophile now in captivity, at the mercy of some socialpath just like him, that has his number. C'est la vie, sport!
