The inmate is taken to administrative segregation, in the medical unit with only a mattress placed on the floor with 24-hour video surveillance with the staff making in-person checks. They are placed there with nothing to harm themselves, as the "watch" is designed to prevent hanging (the most common method in prison or jail). There are no bedsheets and the clothing is made of something that would rip if stressed. The inmate sleeps with an extra-thick blanket that can’t be tiedRead more
Yes, as do all of the federal facilities. For instance, if you are not a local call from Edgefield, we can get you a local phone line that will forward to your current number and drop the 15-minute call to only $0.90.Read more
There can't be just one thing that will turn your life around, here are a few that I go by that have helped me get back on my feet Forgive myself and forgive others that don't want to forgive me - I created this mess "Show me your friends and I'll show you your future" - gotta lose the old friends from the past, it's a dead-end street Set realistic goals and focus on what you can control BeRead more

You can try and maybe someone nice will answer, but it is unlikely to work as the rules prohibit staff from relaying phone messages to the inmatesRead more
Blackout? Or are you referring to lock down? A lockdown in prison basically means that you are confined to a cell for 24 hours a day. There is no outside recreation, church, library, school, or work for most individuals.

I was actually at the West Tennessee Detention Center in Mason TN near Memphis for three months, the visitation is in a room with tables and chairs, a platform for a single guard and some vending machines.

They are carefully looking for people trying to smuggle in contraband. They allowedRead more
