Dannemora NY, rough place in the vast frozen tundra in winter, rough deep woods in summer. That’s where convicts who are too difficult for Attica or Auburn go.

Lovin' these video's...Larry's bio film should have '7th Sense' involved in some capacity to the the title...Based on the premise that he seemed to survive his prison life always being one step ahead of the game...Although he went through hell, he did manage to meet that light at the end of a very long and dark tunnel...Bad Ass Inc.

In the 80's early 90's there was only 5 USP's. At the time population was 50- 70.000 overall. The drug war saw population explode and they built alot of FCI's. Yes, an FCI was an FCI but they were different. Some were what we called 'high mediums' and others 'low mediums'. I never made it to a low medium ( didn't want to go nor did I behave in a way that would've gotten me there) but fro observing transfer of people it was clear that high mediums had way more 'convicts' then what came out of the low mediums. Alot of guys got transferred from the USP's to the higher mediums so it had that sort of feel on the yard. We had some good yards out west not that I'm trying to put a good spin on the whole experience.

Funny/true story...I got out of FCI Phoenix after doing 11. I fly to Seattle x ol lady ( she did * on same case) picks me up at airport. We get to the car, we're talking and she looks at me and asks what I'd like to go do first. She's looking at me like, 'yeah just go ahead and say you want me to blow you'... I'll admit it was on my mind but before I could even engage my brain my mouth says...'can we go to Applebees'. She looked at me like I was nuts. I wasn't a big tv watcher in the pen but it seemed like whenever I was watching tv I would see an Applebees commercial with this delicious looking chicken alfredo pasta meal. My mouth would water and I wanted it so bad. Well I ate, the meal sucked ( I wasn't used to that sort of food anymore) and ....we went home and I had her blow me.

I was a C~Unit Counselor at FCI Edgefield for 20 years but i'm not here to refute anything Mr. Lawton. As a Christian, if I had seen or heard of any iinmates being abused, I would have reported it. If the term "hug a thug" means everyone's life is important, then maybe I was then.

I came across this guy's videos by accident months ago, and have become a big fan ever since. That said, I don't think I really care about prisons being a very unpleasant place to be with shitty food, uncomfortable conditions, and less than favorable treatment by staff. I don't think there should be abuse by guards, but you have to figure that guys who wind up in a maximum security prison, have done things that have forfeited their right to walk amongst innocent, law abiding people.... a lot of which includes violence perpetrated on said innocent people. Larry himself said in another video that he considered assaulting a random person when he first was released from prison because he couldn't handle making choices on the outside and wanted to be put back in. He didn't do it, but society needs to be protected from unstable, violent people, and those violent people need to understand their bad decisions cost them any sense of entitlement they may have.

I was a max guard at Florida State Prison. The Guards and Administrators were sadistic and totally out of control. The put cameras up and microphones to try to stop the guards from fucking them up. I was respected and got along better with the inmates/convicts than the staff. I worked alone in the end. Didnt really associate with staff. Just went to my post/kitchen for a long time 8 hours then went home. Like your channel. I'm from Long Island, and your 100% accurate on everything.

Hey Larry, does anyone ever get a hold of people like lieutenant Cartrette in prison or when the prisoner gets out? Also, a long time ago, I started listening to the musical Les Miserable. It has a few plot stories in it and the music is good, but the main story is a prisoner named Faljean who gets out and he is hunted by a guard who hated him. The guards name is Javert. Here's the lyrics and perhaps the songs (I didn't check the songs. I just quickly googled it to find the lyrics for you): I bought the cd a long time ago and listened to it over and over. It's good. Eventually I read the lyrics on the cd and understood it more. Who knows, you might like it.

It's weird how the feds have the same designated lunch meals wherever you go. Chicken patty tue, burger wed, chicken breast Thursday and fish Friday but the meat is different. It wasn't bad when I was at sheridan but when I got to texarkana it was actually really good. We had a culinary arts program there so that might've had something to do with it but I was actually pretty impressed. We had big chocolate muffins for breakfast every morning like something you'd get from Costco.

San Quentin isn't as bad as it used to be back in the day anymore. It's actually become a pretty chill reception facility at this point. Yes they still have death row and still have some issues here and there but it's not what it used to be. Now it's been replaced by Corcoran and Pelican Bay.

Its funny when people look down on "criminals" never knowing that a "criminal" only seeks happiness far greater than most, is more motivated than most. Put it this way, who do you think is happier, the guy slaving and complaining everyday trying to save money for a boat. Or the guy already at the lake who "borrowed" a boat. I ain't saying nothing here about right or wrong, remember that. So the next time you meet a "criminal", you remember, they only wanted happiness to.

Larry, you are a gifted speaker- I stumbled upon your channel by accident, but since then I’ve non stopped been watching and have been a huge fan since! Your videos are very entertaining, educational, and teach incredible life skills and lessons to people everywhere. You are a perfect example of your saying “ I don’t believe in bad people, I believe in bad choices.” It’s amazing and remarkably inspiring to hear your story , and life- and the unimaginable horrible challenges and scenarios a ton of people will never have to face. I struggle with addiction, and your videos serve as therapy and a tool to keep a good mindset to remain steady to avoid having to go through your past experiences. I’m buying a hoodie to support!! Subscribed, and like and share your videos. It’s not much, but I wish I can do more. You tell it like it is, and have made a great life, and impact viewers like me. It gives me that fire in my belly that if Larry can do it, I can get through this! I support you all the way, and hope you see this comment. Nothing but love, respect, good wishes, stay healthy, and keep using your gifts. You are a gifted individual. Keep making videos Larry!!! Shout out from Long Island N.Y!!!!👍👍👍👍

Larry knows his stuff, did time and saw many things that blew me away. I was in a cell next to a guy who slit his wrists vertically, all the way down from his bicep to his hands. He put his shirt over his arms so coming back from chow his cell mates didn't notice. He laid down and as I heard beating on the door and shouting. I looked out my 6" window and saw a pool of blood dripping from the upper tier walkway dripping down off the edge. After 15 minutes watching 👀 the blood keep seeping from under the door and the pool of red get bigger a guard finally walked up the stairs and they wheeled him out in a wheelchair. I have never seen sooooo much blood in my life. I have gutted deer before but I will get to that later.....never saw the guy again....

What about the prisons, same thing we have in Russia, do you think prisons want ot let you go? No. Its remind me "the shawshank redemption", moment about institutionalization, you know, no one wants you to start you life again, i dont know why, ofc there is a lot of psychos and something, but there is a normal people too, people, that make a mistake.

Kaczynski (spelling) is a bizarre case. I've read enough about him to know he would definitely be a flight risk in non-super max prison. He has a staggering intellect... what he did with that intellect is horrifying of course. I wish a place like that in Florence CO. didn't need to exist, but with criminals like him and his neighbors...

Larry should have a show on A&E or Travel channel. Maybe National Geographic. Where he talks about the history of the penal system in America and discusses famous prisons and prisoners, miscarriages of justice and corruption and abuse of power and exploitation of the incarcerated. I would watch the fuck outta that, lots of people would im sure. Maybe it could be on Netflix, too. They like making shows like that.

This guy reminds me of that bullethead in the county jail in that Clint Eastwood movie "Heartbreak Ridge" that was talking shit to that young kid trying to play him. Seems his greatest (achievement) in life was being an inmate (not a convict). Old time convicts knew how to do time without all the theatrics. This guy wouldn't have lasted two months in Pelican Bay, or S wing at CMF. The boys in Folsom would had him making their beds, and morning coffee. He's a figment of his own imagination !
