Weird question. So. Um. When you "suitcase" something is it just in-between the cheeks or is that bad boy going all the way.

Larry, I dont know if you will read this but I am the son of a prison guard and my father has made many inmate friends who care about him because he treats them as humans and doesnt take stupid shit away or act better than him. Were there any Guard that you liked or does everyone hate the guards?

Obviously you haven't been to a recent mainline prison because everything you say they don't say it said every single day kids are new kids are young your old school you went to an old school prison a long time ago the way people talk changes every day you and I both know that get off the gas

I remember when my now husband but fiancé then was on the inside they'd never let my letters through an would always send them back for some stupid bullshit reason an he got put on diesel therapy alot. I ended up having to join the victims notification system just so I could know where he was cause any other time I'd try to check on him or see where he was they'd come up with some bullshit story why they couldn't tell me anything yet.

Dry snitching. Is giving up the ghost without meaning too. Showboaters are dry Snitches. Staring at a fight is dry snitching. Shit like that. Accidentally ratting yourself or someone else out. Not what he said. Dropping a kite is straight full on snitching.

I don't understand how you can shoot heroin with a homemade needle. Doesn't it have to be hermetically sealed so you can pump the liquid drugs into a vein? And if you puncture a vein without a seal, it'll just keep shooting out..

Thanks for the heads up on some terms. Education exists everywhere and some terms are universally used. military, streets, gangs, hospitals, prisons. the shit is everywhere. Stay safe, stay smart. Keep teaching what you can. You never know what you pick up or whose life you’re saving in the process.

I began my tattooing apprenticeship in 1984. I’ve seen, fixed, improved and covered up tons of what we tattoo artist call “jailhouse tattoos” over the years. Some of the examples that came through the door looked good, but a lot of it was pretty bad. I just want to say that the work you’ve got on your arms is some of the best I’ve seen.

When I worked in the prison I heard the words: Robocop - a strict guard who follows all the rules Walk it off - you can go now (we used it when there was a group of 5 or more people in a group) Punked out - when a guard is bought or when an offender is turned into a bitch Lit up - when someone got hit with the pepper spray and it turned them orange

The only issue with this is, different area's say different things, maybe across the country they used different terms, so it could be that the person isnt full of crap, just got locked up somewhere super different.

I have an uncle who spent 12 years in a federal penitentiary for attempted murder. He contracted hepatitis from getting prison tattoos. Fortunately, he made a full recovery. He's a really good guy. The type to give you the shirt off his back to help you if you're friends, or cut the shirt off your back if you're not lol. I love'm to death. You definitely shouldn't judge someone based on their looks, or their past. We all make mistakes, and we all have the capacity to learn and grow from those mistakes.

I never understood the Cell Warrior mentality I had a friend who would talk shit to people at parties and then he would get beat up. Like why? Dont misunderstand his a nice guy and his not doing that shit anymore, but I couldnt understand why he do such thing repeatedly. After getting one beating shouldnt you learn to stfu?

All day was used or lifers ,but I think it was different depending on the era you were there. I heard a buncha different slangs . thorazine shuffle I remember that yeah. Haven't been in a stretch so it's probably changed. We used to wear street clothes my first bit. I never did federal, they could have there own slangs. Like I said it's been awhile and my life could be a book so I push things to the back of my brain. I remember dipping,just the word dipping. Someone would say don't be dipping or are you dipping. writing this as you run through em. If someone had aid we said they had the hot shit. A mirror was a hawk. Shit , you have a million subscribers, maybe you'll see this in a couple a decades. Aaaaaahahaha

I got mad respect for this guy but he did something in this video that seems to be pretty common today. The whole I never heard that so it didn't happen. Just cause you have never heard of something doesn't mean it isn't real or doesn't happen. Other than that good video very informative. I was surprised to not hear the phrase "out of pocket" I have heard it is pretty common. I guess it means crazy or fucked up or bullshit or nonsense. I guess it can mean a lot of different things. Like Larry if I entered your cell w/o knocking that would be out of pocket.
