  1. IT’S SAD WHEN CORRECTIONS OFFICERS SUPPOSE TO HELP INMATES .BUT DON’T THEY STEAL FROM THEM. AS A CONVICTED FELON SOMETHING MUST BE DONE ABOUT CROOKED CORRECTIONAL OFFICERS.

    • you are so right but the worst part of it is that they know that we are captives by our own design and that they think that we are never going to find out.
