I did about two years at the hoy unit and I feel the pulic needs to know that notonly are the cops abusive on the outside but they are on the inside as well. families need to help their loved ones on the inside and take steps farther than the warden. there are a lot of inmates that abuse others in there and the officers laugh about it and or allow it. it is ghetto hell there and lots of discrimination there. black officers rule the whites and are verally abusive to the inmates. yes a few whites too. you will not be left out. bogus cases that affect those that are really trying to go home. news staions need to set up your post.

I just got out tuesday I am a very large (fat) person and I was ridiculed and belittled by guards as well as some ranking officers the guards cursed us out calling us bitches and hoes with little or no provocation a guard was heard telling inmates she was willing to risk her unborn child in order to make sure they never get to go home there were worms in the shower rats in the kitchen contaminated water we were locked in our cells with no running water overnight one day I ate something and began having an allergic reaction in which my tongue and lips started swelling when i asked to go to medical i was told i needed to just drop a sick call which can take days to be answered

When I first started my prison sentence, I was sent to Dayton, was there for eight months, from there I went Reception unit for almost a month, then was assigned to Hobby, had to work the hoe squad for months, before I got medically unassigned for three months, then was assigned to the kitchen, after awhile I laid it down, refused to work, I got so many disciplinary cases both minor and major, but somehow I was never sent to medium custody, I did a lot, saw a lot, met & bunked with people I would've never chosen to. I'm not an angel, but some of those women weren't worth knowing. The guards let the little power they had go to their head, some women could get away with anything, especially if it was a stud, or a pretty girl. I saw and felt enough hatred in that place that would make your blood run cold. Cold blooded killers, that never showed an ounce of remorse, they laughed when they talked about what they did. I saw women get cut up on the rec yard, under the stairway, in the gym. I had roommates that tried to control me, but that's all they did was try. If you don't stand up for yourself in there, then you'll always be just another little mouse. I did 12 flat years, from 1997 till 2009. Most of my time was on Hobby, but I did time on Riverside, Terrace, and Sycamore. Whoever reads this, if you've never been to prison, please stay away, it's not a good place. I 've been out for five years now, and I'm doing good. I never want to go back to those pieces of hell on earth.

    Wow! Thanks Cheryl. Hobby Unit sounds like a really bad place.

    Cheryl,so When you left had they done anything to fix the nasty water they had to use? I see and read a lot of bad stuff about Hobby I can't understand how the state allows this prison be allowed to run like this and be so nasty I'm very worried I have a daughter that just got transfered there and I don't think she will be able to handle what goes on there unless there have been some changes made since you were there. After she told me she had to move to that unit I Googled it I was shocked and got sick right away knowing she had to be there and I don't know what to do for her...with all the reports these girls tell about Hobby I can't understand WHY it remains open...Praying for my daughter very hard. .and thank God you are out.....

i was on Hobby from 2010 to 2014...I must say its all what you make of it..the guards are ghetto and rednecks and prejudice and the rank is just sorry..but there are good people on this unit and I made a couple of good friends that I will always care about. I have been out 3 months and have a job and a new car ...I have no plans of EVER returning to prison and especially not Hobby...I had a good job but had to work the hoe squad for about 3 months when I lost my trustee but even with HIGH Blood Pressure and over 45 they still had me out there in that heat but its what you make of it like I said...its best to try to be in 5 bldg even tho its hot and cold back there..its somewhat safe!!

I was in Hobby Unit from 2008-2013. I wouldn't wish that place on my worst enemy! Just about the whole system is corrupt and treat the inmates like animals!
