    “Videos and photos posted to amicable media from inmates”

    Why do a inmates have dungeon phones and entrance to a amicable media sites? This is ridiculous!

    Look during their use of abbreviation and spelling and we can see given they are in prison. They didn’t even know how to spell out NAACP! When we select not to learn, we select to be a loser.

    1) dungeon phones are a outrageous problem, and some inmates will literally conflict an officer to give another invalid time to censor a phone. 2) Corrections Officers are busy and underpaid. We get NO honour from a public, nonetheless we are alone in a dorm with 100-300 inmates with usually a radio and some peppers mist for HOURS during a time. 3) We have tiny to no ability to repremand inmates given they kick a charges we write them adult for by pursuit their moms and angry about meant ole officer so and so, afterwards their moms call a WARDEN. The officer, who was usually doing their job, gets put underneath investigation. 4) Inmates have zero though time to consider of ways to get prohibited in, make weapons, and consider of ways to hurtful staff or get them fired. They don’t have entrance to many gym equipment, they make it with washing bags and books and a lockers that are dictated for a storage of their property, or their BEDS. 5) The open will NEVER know a feelings we as officers have when an inamte looks we true in a eye and tells we how they are going to kill you, given we put them in capture for carrying a dungeon phone, and we see them behind on a devalue dual weeks after given they contend a phone wasn’t theirs or we contingency have planted it on them. The open will never know what a like to be trapped in an officers hire incompetent to leave given if we do there’s no one to pull a nessicarry buttons to open doors while we call for assistance on a radio given your associate officer is being assaulted right in front of you.

    Inmates are peoples sons and husbands and fathers, though they are also drug dealers, drug addicts, rapist, thieves, murderers, and dangerous people. Stop holding divided a officers rights to give some-more leisure to those we are ostensible to be safeguarding YOU from.

    I wish for a rapid liberation of a ensure and warden. Sounds like they are unequivocally propitious to be alive.
    There are inclination on a marketplace that will jam dungeon phones, call dungeon phones, uncover locations, etc. all in one unit. And authorised for use by a FCC with correct justice permissions. Maybe not inexpensive though one section could be used in any trickery on a rotating schedule.
    The record exists if they wantto use it and of march spend a money.

    This is terrible what has happened during Holman Prison. we urge that a guards and staff who were mistreat will be ok. we am sleepy of profitable to keep these people behind bars and they are vital improved than I. we feel like, Nicole, an eye for an eye! We as Alabamians and Americans are permitting this to happen. The prohibited entrance in with staff??? And with visitors??? Where is a leadership??? It will be engaging to hear a news after a 100% audit/inspection. we doubt a open will ever hear what that entails.

    These inmates have finished a crime and been convicted……they need to be punished for what they have done. we determine also on bringing behind a sequence gangs! As distant as, assisting them with their preparation to make them a improved citizen when removing out. we am ok with this. They unequivocally need a trade some-more than anything else. The restrained themselves are a usually ones who can make a preference to be a improved chairman when out of prison.

    Most have no fear of returning to prison….that is given there needs to be a change and a change starts during a top! Who is a conduct of a prisons? Also, a dear Gov. Bentley needs to step adult and see that this is done. No some-more Mr. Nice Guy!

    I privately am sleepy of my tough warranted dollars going to compensate for these prisoners who do not caring about anyone though themselves!

    Thanks to William and for bringing this story and we demeanour brazen to see what else is to come.

    As we see it a jail have some-more rights than a Guards, They are to here to make a vital for their families though a complement is so messed adult a guards can’t pull a or skoll them given it opposite a rule. so a Officers get wrote adult for perplexing to keep these jail in line it a loosing battle. Why do jail get BBQ and picnics? these people eat improved than some of a families do. They need to start during a tip and get a manners behind in place.Make it protected for a guards so they can go home to their families during a finish of a shift.

    Well, we overtly didn’t compensate courtesy to possibly they were on amicable media around a computers in a prison, that we was told by an officer/guard they have “limited access” to, or a prohibited dungeon phone. Either way, they get it past a complement somehow. Everything else they get for giveaway isn’t contraband. we know medical caring is indispensable to forestall widespread of illness among inmates and staff, though a complement is injured from a belligerent up. we don’t have a answer of how to repair it other than it has to start during home when they’re young- Good parenting and God, and it’s not too late for these guys to find God. That goes for a inmates and a lawmakers. Maybe they will start doing some-more shakedowns and capture in there to find prohibited and retaliate those that have it. we listened a gossip that people chuck apparatus on a side of a highway and a prisoners who are on work recover or during a work stay pr whatever collect it adult when they’re out on detail. They need to shake them down before they go behind in. Do it good any time! Maybe they do, we don’t know, or maybe a guards get too laxed and trust too much, or maybe some are in on it too for money. we listened that a “good inmates” or “trusted ones” collect adult a things and sell it to a “bad ones” and afterwards they use for things such as this. Anyway, we usually wish all we request warriors remember all a mislaid souls in prison, and those who change them, when we pray. Peace out

    Prison is a JOKE! I’ve mostly wondered given don’t criminals consider like me? One of a several reasons we don’t do crimes is given we don’t wish to go to jail and don’t wish to be treated like a criminal, though I’ve schooled that prisoners indeed have it- and for some- even improved in jail than they did on a streets! You consider they had gym membership, cable, Internet, giveaway meals, giveaway health and dental when they were on their own, before they came to prison? we rarely doubt it! There are trusting babies and children and aged who’d never mistreat a flea who can’t get food, medical and dental! Meanwhile you’ve got these uncivilised barbarous criminals- AND YES- these criminals in this artical are usually that- duration they are in “prison” for in many cases repetitively possibly raping, assaulting, killing, stealing, doping and dealing, etc. usually chillin posting on Facebook, physique building and shaping on how to AGAIN dedicate conflict and attempted murder on trusting jail guards who might have also an trusting and law abiding family during home. The ones that stabbed a guards should get equal punishment in my opinion…an eye for an eye. That’s what’s wrong with this world…people like them consider – no, they KNOW, they can dedicate crimes and get divided with it…and get even improved diagnosis and caring than law abiding people!!!!

You are all unequivocally naïve if we don’t consider that people filch things into prisons that should not be there.
