It will really depend on if they are off of lockdown. I would probably call before I went. It may save you a trip. I haven't heard from my son since Sunday.

It's a really inhumane operation that is going on there. Yes, it is prison, however, humans have needs and rights. The "gang banger's", "homie's", "thugs","young punks" or even "old school" inmates...whoever/whatever/how ever/ this lock down, AN ENTIRE WEEK OF INMATES THAT ARE CAGED LIKE BARBERIANS!!! STRIP THOSE WHO ARE ACCOUNTABLE!!! PRISON IS ACCOUNTABILITY AND CONSEQUENCES related to one's own actions...yes again...ONE INDIVIDUAL'S ACTIONS!!!
PLEASE HELP THESE MEN WHO HAVE LEARNED SELF WORTH YEARS AGO...now continuing on day after day, doing "their time" peaceful. "Prison reform" "HOPE"!!!

Why are they on lock down? This place is ridiculous and the rules change daily. Grievances and request never answered. Very unprofessional and rude employees. It needs to be shut down

It really is inhuman...I wish there was something we could do or someone we could have look into it. You would have thought they would have been investigated by now.

Whiteville is nothing but a joke the CO's don't want to do their jobs and when they have to the inmate gets in trouble for it. They just want to treat everyone like crap and use their power to get away with it. If they write grievance or anything it either don't get answered at all or they just throw it away. They put them on medications and then just stop giving it to them. The rules are a joke everything changes daily they get put on lockdown when it's only a few people that mess up. This place is a total joke and needs to be shut down. I have been emailing tdoc and the asst wardon and the wardon. More people need to be calling and emailing about this place and maybe someone will do something.

Yes I agree....I have emailed tdoc but they just forward my complaint to whiteville and they call my son out and have a so called sit down with him and make he and I look like a fool. I just called a week ago about his credits he didn't get and they told him he didn't tell anyone abouut it which he most certainly did. He also filed a grievance and they told him it wasn't greiable. They told him that I yelled at him which was a lie. Who else can I make contact with some authority or is there anyone at this point?

I will keep calling and emailing about this place. I will not stop if I can't get anything done with these people I will start emailing and calling the comissioner and then the governor. This place is a joke and something needs to be done. I know it's prison but what whiteville is doing is not right at all.

I saw on another forum that the FBI and TBI were GoPro be there shortly. Someone posted that in January of this year. I wonder if that might be what's going on now....we could only be so lucky.

I was on the phone with my husband when they got put on lockdown Tuesday morning around 7am. They came in yelling facility lockdown and i haven't heard from him since. I am sick of this place. I heard someone got killed. They need to stop punishing all of them and take care of the ones that cause the problems. All CCA facilities need to be shut down!!!

Someone that I know whose husband is at HCCF right next door said there was someone killed at Whiteville early Tuesday morning and that's why they are on lockdown. HCCF was on lockdown Tuesday but came off Wednesday morning.

I have not talked to my loved one since Monday night. Omg just hearing this makes me sick to my stomach. I know everyone is worried when something like this happens it's their loved one. I hope they come off lockdown soon. I call everyday and ask are they still on lockdown I don't care if it gets on their nerves or not. I start calling at 7 a.m. and call every 3 to 4 hours until about 8 p.m.

I have called and notified my local news stations of the news I was given hoping they would investigate further.
