Hi Mona, My son is also on B yard and I was concerened when I didn't hear anything by Friday. I contaced records who put me through to his counselor. If the counselor doesn't call you back ask to speak to the lieutenant. I at least found out my son's name was not on the list of the injured. good luck

With your attitude, no wonder your brother is in jail. Half of your relatives have probably been locked up at one time or another; that's how Your Kind have family reunions...

My husband is also on B yard.... I have received mail from him however, yet this is still the first that I have heard of all of this. I am still worried due to the fact that my husband is in that prison.

It sucks to be in prison, things like these riots are part of prison politics. I have seen this many times. But it is what you have to deal with if you end up in prison.

Thank you! The dumb azz's speak so casually of B-Yard, as if it is common nature. They are lock up and should suffer the consequences, whatever they may be.

I'm not ashamed of my son. And although I love him with all my heart, I am disappointed with the choices he made and do feel that he deserves to be in prison. I truly believe that God has a way of humbling those that think like you and pray that you too won't find out one day that these things don't just happen to other people.

Life itself can be dangerous. Just going out to the grocery store at night can be dangerous, especially all these youngsters shooting each other over stupid reasons. I say if they want to kill each other do it out in the country where you will not hurt innocent people!

I just want to say, these people made poor choices in their lives, but you know what, they are paying there debt to society by being incarcerated. Let's not forget that they are still human beings and that they slipped up once or twice. Not all people are bad and maybe the people that judge so harshly should take a good long look at themselves. Have some compassion for the family and friends who support their loved ones in prison, it's hard to imagen how difficult it must be for them, what they don't need is ignorant, small minded people like you judging them. I'm glad I don't live in America where your laws are unbelievable. In Australia I feel safe in knowing that I or my loved ones won't be imprisoned for petty crimes. Currently 22 million Americans are incarcerated, that is almost the intire population of my country Australia. Think about that for a while.

DEHUMANIZATION.....is the psychological process of demonizing the enemy, making them seem less than human and hence not worthy of human treatment.
This can lead to increased VIOLENCE, HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS, WAR CRIMES AND GENOCIDE.

DEHUMANIZE....to deprive of human qualities, as pity, kindness, individuality, or creativity, MAKE INHUMANE OR MACHINE LIKE.

I feel for all of you, especially those who think human life means nothing, I pray that you nor not one of your family members ever end up in juvenile, thats where it begins, then jail time, before you know it then prison. Regardless of it all, God created all of us, yes even you those without compassion for anyone else. I will soon have a son going to prison, for a 187, I don't condon his actions, but I keep telling myself, that God is the only one knows what will happen, for God Knew each and every one of us before we formed in our mothers womb, he knows, all the pimples on our face, freckles, scares, color of eyes, skin, etc. I have prayed that my son know Jesus as his one and only savior before he enters the gates of hell(prison)for God said if "you come to me all your family will be saved" God never said we would not have any problems, he said all of our family would be saved, which means all will recieve Jesus Christ and their Lord and Savior, and at the end will enter the pearly gates of heaven and you shall be able to see each and every one of your family members there. This should be enough get you through these tough times, which includes not being able to see your loved ones, or hearing ignorance being slammed all over. Feel free to cry out to the Lord, and ask him into your lives, just say Jesus I need you in my life come live in me and be my guide for the rest of my days. Yes, even you those whom feel no peace and hate on everything and everyone. GOD BLESS!
I really don't want to judge, cuz it aint my place, leave that to God,
