This is because the criminal can easily turn him in for the violations that he knew the officer committed. Ironic as it may seem, the supposed guardians of justice can become the very people who defy it. With the inefficient punitive system that California has, it cannot afford to employ an atrocious staff.

Until all these issues are fixed, retribution and restoration in California are at the mercy of a few hands. Until all these issues are fixed, the Folsom State Prison will not be able to serve its purpose. In one of the toughest correctional centers in the United States, an admirable warden made use of religion to convey ethics and morality to the incarcerated. It is one of the toughest penal colonies in the United States wherein most convicts will never be released. At present, it is home to 1, staff and 6, offenders. Such digits make it the most heavily-populated maximum security prison in the United States.

Aside from the given fact that some of those who are admitted to the Louisiana State Penitentiary have committed the gravest crimes in all of America, the penitentiary also holds a bloody history. During this time, prisoners carried rifles pretending to be guards. Homosexual slavery was also very rampant. In addition, murders within the prison walls were also frequent. The penitentiary also witnessed physical attacks by prisoners against personnel and 1, prisoner-to-prisoner assaults in When Burl Cain became warden in , he thought of progressive ideas to pacify a very vicious prison.

He conceded that there was something critically wrong in the manner the criminal justice system was observed. In the end, he decided to resort to a very bizarre strategy to pacify the inmates. His prison reform? It was to employ Christ as means to mollify Angola. His prison reform was based under the assumption that religion was the most effective giver of morality. He needed prisoners to realize what morality was to crack down all the violence behind the bars.

At present, hundreds of prison-ministers are converting thousands of their imprisoned brothers and sisters to Jesus. Although he invited Baptists to teach the inmates of the ideal way of life, Cain supports other religions. He confessed that he is not concerned about religion per se, but rather on faith that is instrumental to conversion. In , there were cases of assaults in LSP.

Although that number is still alarming, one cannot deny that there has been progress in the reduction of violence in LSP. The figures suggest that the United States of America would not have been labeled as the universal capital of imprisonment if it only knew how to arbitrate on the lives of juveniles before they could engage into unlawful acts, rather than after. In the end, everyone should realize that imprisonment is not because of the law but because of justice.

Guardian (Prison Planet, #1) by Emmy Chandler

In fact fights upon fights are a daily occurrence within The Stateville Prison. Ambulances specifically designated to the prison are seen coming in and out 24 hours a day.

As for the visitors and their own experiences of visiting the Island, many have complained about the hassle of going back and forth from the harbor and the bus towards the facility.

Item X-rays and substance-testing may be part of the protocol, but by the time the packages reach their rightful recipients, it would usually have a crack or tear. The San Quentin State Prison SQ is a correctional facility for men which opened its doors back in July , making it the oldest prison in California.

This prison is located north of San Francisco in the unincorporated town of San Quentin in Marin County and is one of the most popular ones managed by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Overcrowding is such a very serious issue that over inmates are housed in the gymnasium. To make matters worse this increase in the inmate population is not equal to the increase of the amount of prison guards.

So frustration, intimidations, assaults, rapes, violence and riots are common things nowadays. The latest most memorable largest riot occurred back in August 9 in which 80 white and Latino inmates fought for six minutes. It took 50 riot officers to stop this massive brawl. The aftermath left 42 inmates injured which three of them seriously enough that they had to be transported to a nearby hospital to get proper treatments.

He was killed in another state prison Sacramento at the age of He was released in But as the other very wise ladies have said, it's a very small minority that ever even see their pen pals once they're out. Some people do use a fake surname when they begin writing to protect their identities. I've never done it, but it seems to make some people feel a bit safer.

Thank you everyone for the nice welcome and advice. I think I am going to do it -- I have things narrowed down to 5 people, but then I am having a hard time choosing among them. I guess I will do some more thinking on it and decide. Also I know its not the crime but it made me feel better to write to someone that didn't commit a crime that I would feel was really morally iffy. Bank robbery was a stupid decision for example were rape I had more of a dillemma with.

I hope that I havnt offended anyone in my honesty. Most definitely have a look around and read other peoples stories. I think it will help you understand how writing to a pen-pal can be.

In some cases it's awkward, or there are misunderstandings and in some cases inmates can be total douchebags. For me it's been a wonderful experience and a lot of people around here have found great friendships. Just like anything great, there is a bit of risk involved.

Although I highly doubt you have to worry about anyone coming after you. If that is something that worries you a lot, maybe choose a pen-pal who will be inside for a long time to come.

Also, if you don't strike gold with your first attempt, try again. Don't let one bad apple keep you from such a life changing opportunity. It's really interesting when you word it that way. When I was searching for a pp I knew I didn't want to speak to someone who was convicted of hurting women or children. Why doesn't talking to a murderer bother me as much? We're a weird bunch here on WAP, that much is certain ;.

Maybe its because were all capable of murder. I'm still waffling about the 5 I picked. Maybe I'll just drop all five of them a short letter -- even if they aren't interested in writing back, maybe it'll pass a few minutes of their time. Don't worry, Jaenelle - my guess is that the letters will come. I couldn't imagine your correspondence being rejected, in any part, by an inmate.

They are at the mercy of the mail personnel, or they could be moved, etc. I have been writing my PP for 4 years and we don't wait for the other to respond before sending another one out : The best part of it all is how much the smallest thing is appreciated. I tend to flood him with mail all out of paper, of course - whether its hand crafted cards or little articles I cut out of magazines or even the word search or comics from our Sunday paper.

Hell, I've even sent the entire paper too - minus the ads. I don't know, I guess its just the joy it brings to me to put his mind at ease that he is cared about, in the simplest way. Yes, he is in for Murder 20 years ago - however, in a previous blog I mentioned that I intended on writing someone who was doing hard time so maybe that is the basis for all the appreciation. I look at my life alot differently now - I don't take for granted the freedoms I have and I place myself in his shoes more than I ever realized I would in having a prison pen pal. Its an amazing thing!!

A very rewarding and eye-opening experience. I am committed :. Being married doesnt really mean anything to a lot of people.

Infact my boyfriend and I write letters together. I'm new to this myself but have an easy solution to ur small town worry. I use my email address instead of posting my last name. I am a person recovering from addictions and I write people in prison for drug and alcohol related issues, and it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made.

I have written both men and women and it has been very rewarding, and helpful to me in my own recovery. I have have no problems, I have had a few non responses, but in general I have been well recieved and appreciated. Now, I have used my home address and had doubts about that at first but to be honest, I figure life itself is a risk, and I certainly threw caution to the wind, when I was out there running and gunning.

New -- Is it safe to write to prisoners? Who should I choose?

Was that a run on sentence? I think writing people in prison is much safer than meeting somone on other networking sites. At least I know excactly who I am dealing with. These are my thoughts. To your own self be true. I would encourage you to write. As a former inmate I know the value of having mail from someone on the outside. I had a number of people that wrote me and we were all just friends.

I did not expect more than that. A kind voice, an understanding person to share thoughts and dreams with is very precious in prison. As for the issue on safety writing someone in prison, there is always a risk just like there is a risk in crossing the street. Using a PO Box is a good way to go and offers some security. Just see how the conversation goes, if it goes strange, just stop writing and let the prison know you do not wish to receive mail from that person anymore. Choosing who to write is really up to you.

Read what they say in their ad and I would suggest that you check out their listing on the prison website to make sure that they are being up and up with you. Then just take time to share and listen to what they are saying. I think you will be surprised by the intelligence and wit that many inmates possess. Go by your instinct. Your friend might be having difficulty coping with everything right now but one day he may come around, just keep writing him he may surprise you. As for myself I have friend who was falsely accused of sexual assualt to a minor.

I write him almost daily but his wife doesn't, not because she thinks he did it she's afraid people will read her letters. I myself am writing other people, I feel it will do them so good for those who don't have a lifeline to talk to. If you have PO Box it really wouldn't make a difference if I'm correct I believe it's harder to trace, and they only know where you live if you give directions.

If your that concern stick with those of a life sentence. Good Luck Jaenelle. All Rights Reserved. Must be 18 to view this website and have read our Terms of Service. Skip to main content.
