What’s worrying is this really reminds me of my school days We used to use gum and we used to brew cider from apple juice and some other things along with making a stash in a wall or table. People also used to hide things in the toilet basin. People used to hustle all the time and they spent around £20 ($30) a month on things in the “store” but hey it was nice to make some money as a kid, best cider I ever drank

5 dollars a month is chump change dad made 1 dollar a day at the governor's mansion said it was the best job in the joint. ( He had a clean record his whole time in prison this is why he could do this and on top of that this was the big house)

In Italy where i was living, many of my friends where going in and out from prison and rehabilitation house for drugs, many of them had always tell me that they will find more pure drugs in that places and more easy than in the streets. It's very strange they go in for something that they can do it easily even there.

Larry before I forget can you please try and do something about the audio in your videos? I am constantly trying to listen to them on my phone while driving but I am unable to turn them up loud enough to hear sometimes. if you could please make the video on average louder so that people like me can listen to them better and other people can just turn the volume down if they need to!

My perspective on prison is that the system should put a stop to prisoners acting violently and attacking other prisoners, but it seems like they want that kind of a system since it reinforces the sort of "topsy-turvy negative zone America" life that occurs in prisons. Prisons should be used for punishments, not for the govt, large corporations, or anyone to enrich themselves. People don't get this because it's out of sight out of mind and they assume that being bad means you deserve that kind of a fate.

The prison industries need to be paying the going wage for every job a prisoner fills. The prisoners should get some of it, and while 10 cents is a bit low, it still should be a relatively small amount. And most of that "wage" should go to cover the costs of housing the prisoner, the cost of their trial, the costs of the investigation, and to repay damages. There is no reason the taxpayers should have to foot any of the bill for their crimes. The amount a prisoner gets to keep needs to be carefully considered. That pay can be a moral booster, but on the flip side as that pay goes up it will cause inflation in the prisons "economy".

My friend Tim is an appellate lawyer out of Ohio. You're absolutely right about scumbag/overworked lawyers screwing people; at least a third of his public defense cases involved filing very basic paperwork that the original lawyers had never bothered with.

Funny! Other officer/cookforeman allowed or gave inmate contraband/food therefore; the officer doing his job by confiscating is a jerk for taking it. Just because one officer is weak and lets inmates take contraband from Food Service doesn't mean every officer should do likewise. An officer should do his job as an officer because of Honor. If there is no Honor in one's service and loyality to those one works for, then one can not be trusted. Mobsters understand the meaning of Honor. When a person violates his code of Honor he pays and when he works as an officer and violate his Honor by introducing contraband or allowing prison violations, he is held accountable.

I made jewelry and greeting cards in prison. I actually sold jewelry to the guards and the inmates. For the greeting cards, I used to get a bag of coffee or three stamps per card. For the jewelry, it was $20 to $80 per finished piece sent straight to my books.

Being clean is a big deal. I had a cellie who wouldn't shower. I asked him nicely twice. Then I pulled him off the bunk and scrubbed him with a dirty toilet brush. He got up every day and showered after that.

So in the example of the shakedown hustle, what would happen if the mark refused to pay? Say either they just didn't have the money or flat out refused? Would 'Big Al' follow through on his threat? Maybe fight him and if the mark defended himself decently move on? Or keep at the mark until he was forced to check in?

I first used charity and used drawings to get items I needed, then started crafting to get more items. I had legal money on the outside from working labour but didn't know how to access till a few months later. When I learned that then I was golden. I shared though, I'd give guys stuff if they had absolutely nothing to help them out at the start. Sh*t was cheap to buy.

I had a job in "Clothing&Issue". I would walk out of there with brand new whites(socks,boxers,teeshirts). I never wanted for anything, lol. I also had the list of all new inmates every Tue. Guys would come by the window and we would hold the list up so they could see who was coming in, for what, from where etc... I also wrote people's G.E.D essays.
