"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."

"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."

"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."

6 years sober-free

"I did 3 years at St. Gabriel. LCIW. The first day I was scared and didn't know what to expect. You walk into a private 2-person room with a wooden door and your own light switch, but that's it. Of course, certain guards took advantage of their authority. One girl with a life sentence was sleeping with a guard and when she got sick and finally got permission to go to medical they immediately shipped her to the hospital where they performed a D&C and didn't even tell her they had aborted her baby. She didn't know she was pregnant until a lawyer contacted her a year later. She got quite a settlement from the facility, which made several of her years there more comfortable.

But geez, as far as the facility goes, it is pretty and they take pride in their landscaping. I went in with a horrible drug addiction and left there a much different, wiser person. There are no words to describe the things that go on behind that plexiglass. I watched my next door neighbor jump from our balcony on the second floor. 30 feet into the day room during count time. It was the most awful thing. She died shortly after. It took them about 3 hours to get her to the hospital.

Another of my friends just recently passed away there. She was 76 years old and died of a heart attack right before she was to go home. So sad. Every single woman in that place has a story. Some not so nice. Some just involved with the wrong boyfriend. Some tired of getting beat on every day. Now there are many many women there that definitely deserve to be there. But 16 years for a crack pipe. It's crazy."

"Rape still take place in prison, they just have different ways of getting away with it. I was threatened with harm if I did not have sexual intercourse while at Angola. This way, the guards say that the sexual assault was consensual, but that's bullshit. You give it up or you get fucked up, then you get fucked. Please don't believe that rape is dead at Angola. Many of the young boys that I saw coming in got turned out by older convicts, eventually."

    "I did 21 years in Angola, I went when I was 17 years old, I got out when I was 38. The way I went in is the way I came out. The first old head that threatened me I bashed his dam head. There were some guards who tried to set me up to get turned out, but I was dropping predators one by and my rep spread from there. I feel bad about what you experienced while in there and I hope things are better for you now. Keep your head up and don't look back."
