Hays State Prison

Mother Of Slain Inmate Sues Prison Officials

There is a lot of stuff going on that the general public is not aware. Even If the locks were working properly, inmates gain access to other inmates cells because correctional officers fail to follow policy. Sources tells us that any inmate will ask an officer to 'pop' a certain cell door from the control panel and the officers just do it. This without verifying who leaves or who is assigned to that cell. Why? Laziness. Laziness on the job is a contributing factor as to one of the main reasons why many correctional officers fail to follow policy. The poor maintenance upkeep, mismanagement and the deliberate indifference to concerns from inmates, families, and some staff has cost more than one life and thousands (if not millions) of dollars to taxpayers.

@Tax Paying Citizen, prison is no where close to even a one star hotel much less than a five star hotel. Your ignorance speaks for it self. Let's hope that you, a family member or anyone close to you does not get caught up in the legal system because is a nasty beast. And you don't realize how nasty until you or someone you know is in it. WE ALL make mistakes. But regardless of what those mistakes may be we are all entitled, by law, to a just system. Which is not. We are entitled to basic human rights which are denied in prison and covered - up. Since you are a law abiding citizen and tax payer you should focus that the state implement programs that will help rehabilitate offenders upon fulfillment of their sentence to prevent recividism. The doc does not have good programs for rehabilitation. Hence the state's recividism rate. The state is more focus on mass incarceration than anything else. You should focus, as a concern tax payer, on the mismanagement and corruption on part of the DOC's administration. Their inability and negligence is the reason why the department has over a $1 billion dollar budget. If you would like to learn more follow us at www.facebook.com/i nsidegeorgiaprison s. You can also, as an example, do a search on Hays State Prison and see the events that happened early in the year that resulted in four inmates death and officers hurt. You'll find everything you need to know on our Facebook page.  (Aug 16, 2013 | post #6)

Smith State Prison

@whatstheproblem, there is a lot going on at every prison in the state that you will rarely see in the news. Fights, stabbings, rape and even murder among some of the things are a regular thing in prison. While you are right in that prison should not be (and is not) a comfortable place, the wellbeing of the inmates cannot be ignored. Everyone makes mistakes and some are paying for it with time in prison. Most inmates are just trying to do their imposed sentence. Unfortunately, you have a few who continue with their criminal behavior but you cannot punish or judge all inmates because of those thugs.

The doc often places inmates wherever there is an empty bed. The administrators often ignore gang affiliation, rave or disciplinary history when doing this. And as the article shows mental health conditions are also ignored. An inmate who is currently in death row, Warren Hill, was placed in the same situation some years ago. He is on death row for killing his cellmate. Warren has a history of mental illness. To learn more follow www.faceboook.com/ insidegeorgiapriso ns  (Jul 24, 2013 | post #1)

The Hispanic inmate population are a minority in the prison system. The numbers vary from prison to prison. In some prisons you may have as many as 150 (out of @1400 inmates) and in others as low as 50. Naturally, the minority group is going to stick together in order to survive. Nevertheless, the doc places inmates where ever there is an empty bed knowing the rivalries and tensions between gangs and race. The fact that a person is serving time for whatever the crime maybe it doesn't mean that his or her safety van be ignored.

What type of forgiveness is that if you still sound like you have hatred for what he did? Anyway, the DOC still has a responsibility to ensure the safety of all inmates. The State should reform and implement programs that will rehabilitate a person. Just locking someone up for a length of time will not solve the problem. The prison population is beyond capacity because of that. To find out more follow us at www.facebook.com/i nsidegeorgiaprison s  (Jul 13, 2013 | post #23)

Hays State Prison

I do not agree. If they take everything into consideration then why put someone who has a life or multiple life sentences with someone who has, say, 10 years or lest as roommates? Why put a Crip, for example, with a Blood, when they are known enemies as roommates? Why put a Hispanic inmate as roommate with a black inmate who is affiliated with a gang? These are just examples. But the doc administration knows and is well aware of the problems between gang members and race. Yet they do nothing about it. It's an ongoing problem that places inmates and staff in danger. Inmates are place anywhere. Follow 'Inside Georgia Prisons' at www.facebook.com/i nsidegeorgiaprison s.  (Jul 2, 2013 | post #3)

The doc's top officials and administration's mismanagement places both inmates and officers in danger. There is plenty that could be done to avoid placing anyone in a position where one has to defend him/her self or take preemptive measures to guarantee ones safety. To take action and help us with change within the doc, follow us at 'Inside Georgia Prisons' at www.facebook.com/i nsidegeorgiaprison s.
