    He wasn't in there long enough for them to make any significant improvements. :)

    Well it has to be a Federal Penitentiary, not just any old jail. :)

    Seriously you don't - Have you not watch some of those TV shows that talks about life inside jail?

    LOL, it's not that bad, especially in the southern part, lots of good fishing down there.

    I'm in the southern part... southern IL is fine and nice but its poor, all the money goes to Chicago it seems. Lots of great fishing holes down here yes. I know of many that tourists have no clue about, too. Lots of good hunting in these parts too.

    I live in Hurst, about 20 minutes from c'dale. Carbondale has gone to crap though, lots of issues over there - if it wasn't for SIU, the town would be a ghost town. Marion on the other hand is really improving, besides all the road construction.

    I don't know why, but I thought Ozzy was Australian.

    Shawn, question for you. I had to refresh my memory of the correctional facility, but was what I read about the female guards true, and that some people "escaped" by simply walking to the highway and waiting for their family to pick them up? That the place is more like an honor system center for white collar sentences?

    The "real" prisons are what they do the shows on. I'm sure going to a high security penitentiary would be no joke and not a fun place to go. But I was at a camp... no fences, no cells, a full time staff recreation coordinator who plans and coordinates stuff to do (like softball tournaments). It *literally* was like going to summer camp.

    While not the greatest picture, I found a picture someone took from the parking lot... https://inmateintake.com/locations/taft-ci-camp.19/ As you can see, there's no fences or anything. It's more like living at a community college than anything.

    From what I was told, the female guard thing was true, but it was a few years ago and no longer going on. But people that have been there since then said it was true back then. There were 10 "escapees" while I was there for 5 months (more on that over here). But yeah... you literally could just walk away if you wanted. One guy went to Walmart to get stuff to sell (like cigarettes) and came back when I was there, but he got caught and sent to the SHU in the adjacent low-security facility.

    Hmm, I remember him from Vbulletin. This was an interesting read :) Though perplexing at the description of the facility a bit.
