The main difference is the federal budget is $7 billion/year, the inmates are well fed and well cared for with a lot of programming options. In general, the guards are paid better and trained better. The state system is as different as the 50 states they are in. Some are okay and others are miserable - like no air conditioning in the hot southern summer. We would say with 100% surety that the federal penitentiaries are better for the inmate thanRead more
Very silly question. I did 66 months and never even came within a hundred miles of someone raping me. In fact i dont think i heard of more than one in my whole bid, this was a cho-mo being held for all kinds of child porn charges. He got his teeth broken out and his mouth was violated.Read more
Yes, you read about it the news probably once a week, however the statistics about murder in prison are actually lower that on the streetsRead more
If he is in the hole, he is safe. The hole is used for disciplinary reasons but also for protective measures, too. If he told the staff that he was scared for his life, he basically asked for help, to be "checked in to pc", or protective custody. He is likely to remain in the hole for the entire sentence unless they transfer him.Read more
It is like the movie "Groundhog Day", where everyday is the same, over and over where nothing changes. It is 100% true that if an inmate tells a guard about a situtation and others find out about it (and they always do), the inmate will forever be tagged as a snitch and will face retribution for the balance of their sentence. In many cases, the snitch will either need to be placed in protective custody or asked for transfer.Read more
Prison/jail is a scary place. The worst part is the boredom, not the violence. Every inmate wants to go home, but they know there is time to be served and the ones that can handle boredom the best, are the ones that survive. The magazines and books inmateAID has on the site are there for your convenience of ordering, but staying in touch with the outside world keeps them focused on what they'll do when released. Your son will need toRead more
TV tends to pick the most extreme situation that could happen. If they were to film a day in a jail, it would put you to sleep. Nothing really goes on... it's wake up, eat, clean your cell, watch tv, eat again, watch tv, play cards, read a book, read a magazine, play basketball, do puzzles, eat a third time, watch tv - read - play chess, go to bed. Tomorrow and tomorrow are all the same... like the movie GroundhogRead more
It is not better or worse than any other prison. Fights happen in all prisons and jails. The inmates that get into fights are the same type personalities that get into fights outside of prison. If your inmate wants to steer clear of fighting, they should learn about the "rules of respect" - not interrupting others, don't butt in line, don't reach over another's plate, don't be a snitch, don't be in other's business, don't listen in on other's conversation,Read more
County jail's biggest problem is the limited amount of things for inmates to do. Boredom could cause conflict when you have dozens of guys sitting around and getting on each other's nerves. County jail is three square meals and a lot of down time. If you inmate has some street smarts he will figure out who not to mess with. Most of all, this is nothing like what they show on TV. County jail time is a collosal waste of valuableRead more
Any of the state SCI facilities in Pennsylvania are serious institutions. It is possible that your son has been in a few fights or so if he's been in the RHU a few times. But we are not wanting to alarm you becasue it is also possible he beat up someone, instead. The RHU is either for disciplinary reasons or adminstrative reasons. The latter could be protective custody, but we do not think that is the case or he wouldRead more
