All new inmates must through Admission and Orientation (A&O). This is where the staff goes over the different resources and policies at the institution with the new guys. The camp administrator told the new guys at yesterday’s A&O that the camp associated ten previously confiscated phones with the inmate-owners. She said that the hole was full so they were going to pick-up these cell phone offenders as space becomes available.
In addition, they “know” that there was a drop of more cell phones earlier in the week. The shop guys were told not to report to work today so we assume they are shaking down the shops today. We are expecting a shakedown in our units this weekend.
The camp administrator also said that they were shipping the cell phone offenders as far from home as possible. There are some North Carolina guys going to Texas and California. I keep thinking, “what are these guys thinking?” Apparently, at least one of the guys had nude pictures of himself on his phone that he was sending to girlfriends. I would say that is proof positive – dummy!
Why work yourself down to a camp and then blow it on a cell phone? Now, they go back behind the fence permanently and are far from home. How can this possibly be worth it?
