Good story but harrowing just to read it too [never mind read it]. Ever have nightmares about that time?


Why do you think youth diversion camps are such failures? All that "Sir, Yes, Sir" yelling and screaming and pushups teaches kids that a jail is not all that bad. They don't have fear of the unknown anymore.

Most jails today have DUI, Druggies and Mental Cases. If you eat in the commissary you avoid the General Population violence but you gain weight eating all those crackers and pastries.

Prisons are generally segregated by race and gangs, rules are the same. Guards don't care what happens, just what obviously happens. So there are inspections where the look for facial bruises from a fight. Now in reality a facial bruise usually means you have a friend but the guards see the bruise and take you out of your cell and transfer you. Thats often how real fights are ended. You don't have to win a fight but sure as hell better not wimp out by running from one or trying to call a guard. Most molesters get hell in prison solely because they are loners and not gang members.

So someone serving a DUI or a Domestic Beef has fewer worries in prison. Gambling in prison? Heck, what else does a prisoner have to do? In Nevada jail inmates are wakened for breakfast at three in the morning. In a real prison gambling passes time better than anything. Just remember the one iron clad rule: If you is got enlightened racial views on the outside, that be cool, but inside EVERY dude be an arch segregationist or he be dead.

Any comment on that, rudeboyoi?

As for myself, I feel quite enlightened on racial matters, usually succeeding in seeing the individual and not the race etc. But for the few times when "shit was happening" in mixed race situations, it was a stunning thing, almost eerie, to watch yourself segregate off into racial grouping.

The standard response for having a black eye was I slipped in the shower. The guards even put a sign up on the wall. Shower - 99 Inmates - 0

Sure racism runs rampant but it runs in both directions. You hate the races that are your enemies and like the races that are your allies. And I'm sure it varies depending on what region of the country you're doing time in.

Nah. It was fun. I got to gamble and play games every day. Only nightmares I've had were about the person that put me there.



How long were you in?

A really good friend of mine is on probation for 5 years. His PO has now tossed him in jail for 90 days at a time 5 times. Each time he goes in the judge restarts his sentence or gives him a new one. Not sure how they are doing it. He has now been on probation for 6 years and still has 4.6 to go. Although I feel he needs punished for his crime at this point I think it has been rather excessive.

Yah that's why a lot of convicts prefer to just do the time. Probation can create a never ending cycle.

The guy literally wanted to kill me after the fact. He was actually in there on a 2nd degree murder charge. The head of my people end up talking to the head of his people. They come to an agreement that my people would handle my punishment and my own people end up beating my ass but it was totally worth it.



Ummm, how bad did they beat you up?
