4 year old rations, is NOTHING! When I was in the Army in 1975 to 1978, we ate C rations from WW2 and Korea. MREs were not invented yet or at least we never got them or even knew about them. We ate 20 to 30 year old rations. Good food? No but we ate them.

If prison was fun and easy, there would be so much more crime. People would be like hey I’ll rob this guy and if I get caught I’ll get to eat watermelon and play softball and eat steak and potatoes every night. It’s prison. A place for criminals.

Prisons need to be a place of punishment AND reform, but they only focus on the first one in the United States. Obviously there are people that are reformed, but I believe that’s rare. We need massive prison reform. Also I love your coffee cup.

If someone killed someone else in prison and the feds transferred them to another prison. Wouldn’t it be smart to send the guy to a state that has the death penalty? The only thing I think a lifer would actually have to fear is death.

I AM NOT INSULTING ANYONE, I COULDN'T HANDLE PRISON, WOULD RATHER BE IN THE MARINES. WHEN I WAS IN BOOTCAMP that WAS ENOUGH TO GIVE YOU PTSD.

I understand that prison is looked at as punishment, but that's no reason to treat people like shit, or second class citizens. As I've said numerous times, people in the penitentiary should have the resources to better themselves, and have the opportunity to be rehabilitated so they're on the right path once the time comes to re-enter society. If they're treated like shit the entire time they're in prison, they're going to be worse when they finally leave, not better. The way the prison system works in the United States is corrupt as fuck. No one should profit from putting a person in a cage. Everyone makes mistakes. That's part of being human. We are all products of our environment. So many people that end up in prison are there because they didn't have the education, or the means to support themselves, or their families. Most people have no empathy for people in prison because they are dehumanized in the public eye. It could easily be you, or me in that little concrete cell. Remember that the next time you say, or hear someone say they should just lock all those "criminals" up and throw away the key. That criminal is someone's son/daughter, father, brother, etc. Those people are the most in need of a helping hand. They're the most in need of a loving heart. They're the most in need of some compassion. They're the most in need of understanding. You have no idea what drove that person to do whatever they did. I'm not talking about the rapists, or murderers, or pedophiles. The majority of people in prison are there for nonviolent offenses. Until we change the way our prison system works, we're just setting people up to fail every time someone becomes institutionalized. I love you, Larry. You're a great person, and I appreciate you sharing your story with all of us. I hope more people take notice of what's going on in our prisons through your stories, and stand up to make the changes we need. God bless you brother.

Going to prison in itself is supposed to be the punishment for the crime. You aren't supposed to be punished IN prison unless you've done something to be punished after going into prison.

Just imagine having to wait for a few hours in line to talk to your family on Christmas day, but instead seeing someone get stabbed to death and then having to spend the day alone in a prison cell. If you'd wish that on others, take a look at yourself.

The idea that getting a holiday in prison is "coddling" is just entirely ignorant. If prison is about wrath and retribution then sure, don't give prisoners even a single day of rest. Our prison system NEEDS to be about decency and justice. Good old science-based, research-backed, real, proven methods for rehabilitation. Society benefits more from rehabilitation than recidivism. This simply cannot be done if it's profit-driven and relatively unregulated like it is, it's as big of a conflict of interest as insurance companies deciding for themselves whether they are going to cover costs for their customers. As long as recidivism is more profitable than rehabilitation, our system will be totally dysfunctional. You simply can not expect a _business_ to do the right thing when it costs less to do the wrong thing. Businesses exist to make money for their owners and shareholders, they don't exist to look out for people, they don't exist to do the best job they can, their bottom line is profit.

American prisons are so insanely barbaric for being a "first world country". It's hardly better than a middle ages prison. The culture is reinforced and _allowed_ The food is just bare minimum to keep you alive yet starving at the same time. How does a man like Larry survive on 2,030 calories a day without constantly losing weight and buying commissary? It's not set up to "reform" it's a rug to sweep the "undesirables" under. They want these people to just die and go away. Either that or they're just apathetic towards them hence the non existent medical care. You CAN set up prisons that _are_ to reform, that aid the human beings sent there and teach them methods to go about life on the "straight and narrow". I know these Nordic countries are more homogeneous but we can take their example and imitate and at least TRY. Innovation NEEDS to happen. Why take a criminal and reinforce their behavior or make them worse before sending them back into the community to harm society again? Why traumatize all these people locked up? Should someone be sent to prison for freaking weed, waste years of their life in torture, and leave with PTSD? Some stories I've heard it's almost like the crimes they committed were inevitable, like their life was a 1 way track leading to that conclusion. We also shouldn't have private prisons. Prisons should not be a money making scheme. And commissary shouldn't be a racket to take advantage of these people criminals or not. We need to evolve our society. Bring ourselves to the next level. So much about our country is so screwed up. I don't _want_ to vote for Biden but I _cant_ vote for Trump. At least Biden wants to get rid of private prisons. (Also he never insulted vietnam veterans, calling them suckers and losers, and wouldn't go to a military cemetery cause it's "filled with losers" & his hair would get ruined, refused to go to McCain's funeral & acted like flags shouldn't be at half staff for that POW. That he "likes people who weren't captured" and lies about ever saying these things. The list can go on. If we vote for him again we're intentionally fucking up our country even worse...)

I stumbled across your Channel and I've been watching quite a few of your videos. I really appreciate a lot of what you have to say. Especially in this video. I agree totally that locking somebody up and keeping them stagnant doesn't help. I think it would be a lot better to treat people in prison sort of as a troubled youth( for lack of better comparison) . Guide them, rehabilitate them...teach skills that they might not have had on the outside, coping mechanisms. Help bring them together with family and to reconnect with positive influences on the outside so that they have a better chance of making it once they get out and a better chance at successfully making it through their sentence . A lot of these people ended up in the prison system because of bad choices. Ehy were those bad choices made in the first place? I think it's because they lacked self-confidence, and they lacked the skills and the knowledge of how to deal with things in a better way. And I think that's imperative to success and to navigating through life, being the best person they could be.

I work in a house of correction for eight years ( first I’m not sure how I lasted that long but even more grateful I didn’t end up there) my self and the administration didn’t often see eye to eye. On the 4 of July I get 3 inmates try to tell me they should get fireworks on the rec deck. My answer to silly questions was always “ are you doing time or is the time doing you? “ they walked away. A few hours later a lieutenant does a walk thru he’s one the second tier I hear him call my name followed by a wtf! So I know right away one of these inmates is setting me up for failure. I get up to the cell he’s at and I crack the door. I’ve got 4 dudes in a 2 man cell with two foot lockers lined with trash bags filled with water. Before I can say anything one of the mates sitting on the butcher block ( he must have been the life guard) says to me CO check it out we’re are doing the time with a pool in our cell. Smoke is coming off the lieutenants head. I look at him straight faced and tell him to Waite his turn and if he’s got a soup I can get him moved up on the list. I got written up for that but on the plus side I got frozen on the next shift with holiday pay. It was dudes like them that made that job fun.

Larry the way I see it they took all insensitive away for good behavior! Why would the men and women that are serving time to be reformed from the crime they committed even want to behave? They took away any kind of incentive from them! It stupid give them something to look forward to! I would be willing to bet the prison system would experience a significant drop in violence against each other! Just because you committed a crime doesn't make you numb to enjoyment! It's very sad how bad the prison system has gotten and its being run by a bunch of wana be tuff guys. It makes me sick. Recovery reform...... bullshit. If prison was for recovery and reform you wouldn't see the revolving door that we see in prison. God bless you larry you are a good man and I'm glad I found your channel. I wish I could donate however finances are tight right now due to losing most of my left foot and not being able to work and ofcourse no help from our wonderful government.

At one point in the California state prison system they were brought up under investigation for feeding "food products " in the meals for inmates that the labels and boxes literally were marked, "NOT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION" , in big bold letters . And this was fed to inmates in all meals all the time. I remember reading or hearing about the federal government investigating them for it. And there was this period of time the guards punished the inmates in various ways and took it out on the inmates because all the prisons, some more so than others, had to toss out literally tons of boxes food products in the trash and creating more work for them as it cost the state millions upon millions of dollars to get new and " suitable " food for human consumption. All of which came from the billions of dollars these guards were hoarding and pocketing in scamming the prison system.

Fed pen vs State pen ..depends on the pen you go to..what state your in. I have listened to Larry enough to know how he describes the Federal prisons he was placed in. And he has said his experience with State prison of whatever state he was in. But my experience in seeing some of one particular states system and prison, it is no any different than anything he describes out of federal prisons he describes. In my particular time of custody at high level 3, in California, (level four is maximum security) the only difference was the time out of cell living. At that time we had what was called the "Green Wall". Which was a prison gang of officers and correctional officers, guards or whatever you wanted to call them. They were responsible for countless of deaths, setting up riots, taking bets on who was a better marksman and bet on who would get head shots on inmates when they set it up to open fire on rival gangs that they would purposely allow on yards together. They were known to take just about anyone into mop closets having them completley shackled and cuffed up where they are defenseless and beat them with short rubber garden hose pieces or with rolled up telephone books. As these left less proof of injury, marks and bruising. They were known to beat inmates to death with their batons.. multiple guards on one person...attacking inmates in a cell at night when they are sleeping just for the sport of it. There is full documentaries on the whole "Green Wall" and many officers where eventu6tried and convicted. There was a big overhaul of the system because how bad it was. This also led to the whole federal takeover of the prison medical system and such because for the most part inmates can be having a heart attack and no help would be given. It could be hours before any guard even decides to check it out.. and there were so many times where an inmate died of a heart attack or whatever complications and was left laying dead in their cell for many hours. I am not knocking on Larry..but his experiences are his.. and I guess one needs to of been there to know how bad it can really get. Ot would be tough to compare one to another.. no place of incarceration is "fun" or a place to be recommended in any way. I have seen many people who were stabbed to death, thrown from a fourth tier to metal tables and stools cemented in the ground and basically an immovable object. I saw peoples heads caved in with weights and other heavy objects. I have seen people get hanged by other inmates and guards just basically watch from a place of safety instead of stopping it. I don't see how any place can compare to much worse. The gangs are just the same.. and the politics relatively the same. I guess it depends where you go and what place your in. I have seen other documentaries of other prisons and federal prisons and I see conditions that were far better than where I was when it was the worst. But of course that time for me was quite some time ago. I have been free and living as a positive contributing member of society when the system in California finally got caught for all its corruption. I was discharged from parole in the mid late 1990s. Damn ...wait has it been that damn long??? 24- 25 years since I was released?? Wow.. i barely or rarely reflect back on all that any more. I enjoy Larry's videos. And can i find a commonality there. Wish him all the best
