I served a 20 year sentence at LSP (Angola). The place is a living Hell. The prison is run as a slave plantation. The majority of the guards are related, and generations of their ancestors all worked at the prison. They all have the same mentality, Slave Masters. The employees commit murders, are the number one source of drugs entering the prison, have sex with prisoners, and falsify disciplinary reports on prisoners that they do not like. They nearly killed me. There are very few prisoners that will ever be released. "Life" means just that, life. Not eligible for parole. The pay scale for the vast majority of workers is 4 cents per hour. Most prisoners do not Haagen any contact/connection to society. Family members have forgotten about them. Year after year no mail and no visits. Security officials show no compassion or respect. When you die they do not put your name on the Cross on your grave. Just your prison number. Corruption is rampant throughout the entire State Judicial System. Innocent men have been executed there...and the State knew it at the time of execution, ignoring the condemned prisoners "new evidence" due to time limitations to produce new evidence had expired. LSP is a criminal operation operated by the State of Louisiana. LSP has very few gangs within its walls. The Dixie Mafia is there. They are close knit and actually help many prisoners. "Uncle Pete" is a very kind and respected man. He has been there 40 years, and counting. I bunked right beside Dixie Mafia member Jeffery Todd-Carter. He helped me in more ways than I can count. I trusted him with my life. I am a firm believer that there are thousands of prisoners that could be released from prison who would never reoffend again. But after serving decades they still will never be given the chance to prove it. Most at LSP have served their debt to society (compared to other States) but that doesn't matter to the Louisiana Department of Corrections. Each prisoner equals money from the government. It is all about the money. It is a business...and that business is Human Warehousing Inc.

My name is Theodora and i am from The Netherlands .For more than two decades i'm corresponding with men at Angola La ,State Pen. . They, though they might have done things wrong ,after so many years i dare to say that it is not always for them we should look down at them. Circumstances and poverty are main ingredients for some to go wrong. I feel sad to know that there is no Bill at there available helping the many at there serving a life sentence being given a second chance .From my point of view i dare to agree with our God that even the ones that made the wrong decisions will still being loved by our God. I won't give up encouraging,loving, and taking care of the best given to me ever to leave him behind with no hope and no love and no perspectives or whatsoever to keep him believing in God's mercy and deliverance will come his way soon. Let's pray for all and for those in charge ,the system will turn milder . Please pray along with us for this day will be coming soon. Love and prayers .

Everything you said about LSP is 199% true, especially abut Warden Cain! Thank God he is gone! I have a pen pal there that I have been corresponding off & on with. He tells me he is suppose to go in front of a judge regarding his sentence as he has been there for approximately 16 yrs! I really don't know the charge, but I do know it wasn't for murder! He told me "robbery" I believe, and not armed! Anyway, he still hasn't see a judge, and he told me this in 2015!The Judges name starts with a K, that's all I remember. He is thinking he can & will walk out soon! I do pray he will! That's all I can do! His last name is Schneider and is the A/C instructor there. I pray this new warden will not be as corrupt as Cain was! The way that my pen pal talks, things are changing for the better at LSP!
free my homie boosie!
Is Richard Durr Dixie Mafia? He dresses and looks like Fabian from the Dixie mafia. I was locked up with him for a little bit and he trya to put on like he was a part of all that. Anybody know anything?

No. Mr. Durr is not a member of the DM. And to say that anyone looks like Bobby Jo Fabian is a real insult. I was in a couple different Camps @ LSP with Fabian, and there was so much BS within the camp that all stemmed from Fabian either ratting to security ( to gain favoritism from security ) or him setting other convicts up just to get them moved to another camp all in his effort to eliminate those who he perceived as some sort of threat to him. He wanted to be looked upon as strong and smarter than everyone else. He was neither. Please do not compare him to anyone.
"Louisiana has the sickest prison system in the world. It's just a dark hole. In the day time it's like everyone is being godly, and closer towards meal time it's like the inmates who pray on younger people if they are not in a group or talk will just get sacked. Mostly starts with someone asking for something then it's "I'll see you later," knowing. Unless you're in a gang they usually come back to bother the individual almost routinely.
Louisiana has almost just a big background of racism usually not exposed to the public eye. It is like hate is always going on between people if you're black. And if you're white, well, whites who know where their ancestry is, usually look to other white men to fight with, as if they are proving that they aren't racist. They often do that in private or in open dorms while there are mainly just minorities around, trying to prove to minorities their trust. And then they claim that the other guys are racists . It's just all over control, and the state pays for the game."

"I m looking for my Love, William Scott. He was supposed to get out in May of 2011. Please help if you can."
"The Louisian State Penitentiary once was the bloodiest prison in America. Today, it is the safest prison in America. I have visited this prison on and off for the last 11 years as a volunteer. I am amazed at the changes God has made in this prison. Warden is to be thanked for being an awesome leader and Warden. God has used him to make sweeping changes within the prison. The offenders are to be commended for changing their world. Today this revolution in this prison is marked by opportunities for children and fathers to spend the day together in a program called Returning Hearts. How could this happen in a violent prison? It's CHANGED!
I've walked all over this prison and I am never afraid. The presence of God is stronger than the presence of Evil. The world should investigate and visit before announcing a judgement on this prison. I am thankful for this prisons leadership and the Warden."

Wow. Your comments are so far off from reality that I honestly do not know where to start in a rebuttal. You feel "safe" walking around Angola?! You probably do with Security escorting you to the camps that they want you to see. I.e. Trustee camps, Infirmary, ect. 80% of the population are murders and you feel safe? Ever visited camp-J, alone? No. Safest pen in the U. S. ? Nothing further from the truth.
"I live in England and have always been fascinated by crime and punishment. I watched a program on the Angola farm prison and basically it shocked me that it seems to be a living monument from the dark days of slavery and apparently there is still total acceptance of racism. I agree that murder, torture and rape etc should be life at least or death, but in Angola the crime seems to be irrelevant.
The guards don't appear to be regulated in any way. The place should be run by humans not those sick nutters with batons. Surely there are plenty of white fellas who would benefit from such treatment. I mean, if we are going to be unfair, lets be fair about it."
"My dad is in Lousisana State Penitentiary (angola). It was once the bloodiest prison in the south. My dad has been in prison for 11 years now. He got locked up in 1999 when I was 3 years old I am currently 14. My dad was in for armed robbery and some other stuff.
I have been looking for people to help my dad in court, to testify that me and my grandfather have been in this thing togther with my dad. Everyone gave up on him. I have 3 brothers and I'm the only girl. Even though my dad is incarcerated I'm a daddy's girl and I hope my dad gets out before I'm grown up. He did something wrong but has learned from it. Angola is cruel and unsual punishment for some people. One of the amendments says no cruel or unusual punishment. So I have been a child without a father but I will never give up on my dad."

My son in law just got a Life Sentence, (in Louisiana), for something he did not do. I KNOW he IS INNOCENT! Yet since we did not have money to pay a High Priced "lawyer" to help him in the "Just-us" system, he was railroaded.
I have tried over & over to help him & do not now what else to do. If anyone else has any suggestions, please email me at email@example.com
