How are inmates treated in Nevada Southern Detention Center

Has anyone spent time in the Nevada Southern Detention Center in Pahrump, Nevada & how were you treated while there? The reviews I've read sound like its hell there.

Nevada Southern Detention Center is a CCA facility which means it is privately run. I've been in a CCA prison in Tennessee which could not have been more strict. The CCA staff follows the rules to the letter. In my opinion, when the guards stick to the rules (on the strict side) there are a lot less problems. The inmates take the position that it's not worth going to the SHU because there are no second chances to avoid punishment. And punishment, while you're being punished sucks.
