I worked in a Max Prison for 12 1/2 years. I would be careful not to get close to any inmate. They will say and do anything to get what they want or need, money, drugs, sex, alcohol just to have that contact on the outside. Just be careful and be aware.
"About Eastham not having phone or phone privilages, it s very true. At first I thought it was a lie or something, but it is true. I have no idea why, but I hope this changes because it s only a very basic right for some of them who have people that can t go visit them, at all."
I have been pen-friends with an inmate at Eastham for the last 8 years. I am shocked to find that they (the inmates) do not have access to telephones. I ve been told the prison is in the process of installing phones. Does anyone know whether this in indeed a fact?
