Thank God prison officials are trying to curb sexual behavior that was so obviously out of control. There should be no sexual behavior or cohabitation visits, regardless of sexual orientation. Something needs to be done to give more power to prison officials, police, and courts. A new generation is coming on that wants less and less to do with the deviant, criminal behavior the prison guards and administration officials are having to tolerate because of a false sense of what rights are.

They make it sound like the staff there was purposely segregating inmates based upon discrimination against sexual orientation. People don't think that prison is very much a predator and prey enviroment. There are predators and there are prey, and there are people who willingly partake in same sex relationships or consider themselves situationally gay. All of the above, are breaches of security, and have to be treated as such. Sexual misconduct is against the rules, inmates are aware of that and are told the rules, and if they do not wish to be seperated, then don't break the rules. Period.

First and for most if you knew how idiotic you sound then you would shut that hole in your face ASAP!!!! I was incacerated for 11 yrs and by no means is there predators or prey in fluvanna. You my dear have watched too many movies PERIOD!!!! The rules are NO SEX not NO RELATIONSHIPS. For most women it is about companionship and emotional comfort not the getting F***** part, and that geinus one is not against the rules. So before for you go bashing and passing judgement on something you know nothing about do some research! Then by all means speak your peace, but until that day comes SHUT IT!!!!!!
