I was an inmate at Moriah back in 1992 and I can tell you first hand that the program works. Rather than do 30 months at a prison that does nothing but teaches you how to commit the next crime, I was given the opportunity to be "rehabilited" through military-style disciple.

The early morning runs resulted in me becoming an avid 10k runner. The 6 hours of daily hard labor gave me the ambition to get the proper education so that I would improve my lifestyle. The decision-making classes helped me realize that it's better to walk-away than to make long-term mistakes.

The things that I learned at Moriah are things that I would have never learned otherwise. Anyone that says that the program is a waste of time or money is an idiot (in my opinion).

Today, I live in Atlanta and work as an Electrical Engineer. And I'd be more than happy and stand up with my family to prove it to any nay-sayers.

I was corrections officer for 7 years. Most of the inmates I dealt with looked for excuses, instead of trying to imrpove. You chose to do better. Congratulations, you are one of the few success stories. Now, contact Governor Patterson because posting on this blog will never get your testimony heard in Albany!

This is a joke!!! All the people in Moriah bitched and went it when the state was going to open this prison saying that inmates would be escapping all the time and stealing from people in town. Now the state is closing it down and all these same people are mad. After living in Moriah I think ALL you f'n people are a buntch of dumb asses. Half of you still think the mines are going to reopen.. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Tommy, I too am a former inmate from 6.25. I truly hope they dont close Moriah. It helped me build confidence in myself and a foundation to be a positive person with a great life,great family and a very productive member of society. If it wasnt for that place I dont think I would be where I am today.

Good for you. This program not only helps the people doing time for their crimes, but the people who work in Shock Facilities. Anyone who wants a better life would benefit from the principles this program has to offer. Now a program for the co-dependent person on the other side of the offender would be welcome.
