They're going to switch Lincoln and Logan. Move the men to Lincoln and the women to Logan with the women from Dwight.

Maxx prison was suppose to have the worst of the worst why is your son in there for drugs ? Maybe that's why its shutting down taking in any and everything and they got caught with there hand in the cookie jar!!!! Now you all r pissed off because it's closing. I'm all for capital punishment if u take a life than u should die. If we had it we wouldn't have to worry about closing prisons or over crowding!!!!!
