WRONGDOINGS AT KINTOCK

I HAVE 4 CARDBARD BOXES OF JIMMY'S THINGS FROM KINTOCK...BUT GUESS WHAT!  KINTOCK STOLE MOST OF MY HUSBAND'S GOOD POSSESSIONS, AND HIS MONEY TOO........THEY ONLY SENT ME HIS SHIRTS, A FEW PANTS, A COUPLE OF SHOES, A FEW BOOKS.  MISSING ARE 2 OF HIS GOOD SUIT JACKETS, HIS WALLET, THE KEYS TO THE IGA FOODSTORE IN ATLANTIC CITY........HIS MONEY (AT LEAST $200, or more),  AND MONEY ORDERS, TOTALLING OVER $200..........DOES KINTOCK THINK THEY WILL GET AWAY WITH THIS?....THAT THE PEOPLE WORKING THERE STOLE MY HUSBAND'S MONEY AND BELONGINGS?.......WHAT DO YOU THINK?...........I CURRENTLY HAVE A TRACE ON HIS MONEY ORDERS, WITH WESTERN UNION, AND I JUST HOPE, KINTOCK DID NOT CASH THEM...BECAUSE, ALAS!...THAT WOULD BE AGAINST THE LAW!...AND I AM SURE THAT KINTOCK WOULD NOT DO ANYTHING ILLEGAL, BECAUSE, AS MANY OF YOU MAY NOT REALIZE, THEY HAVE BEEN TRYING DESPARETLY TO GET "ACCREDITED," THESE PAST WEEKS.

SO, WE MUST BE CAREFUL THAT "KINTOCK" STAYS ON IT'S P'S AND Q'S...........THAT THEY DO NOTHING WRONG, SO THEY CAN GET ACCREDITED BY THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY......

WHEN LARRY WENT TO PICK UP THE 4 BOXES OF JIMMY'S STUFF AT KINTOCK, HE WAS TOLD ALL VALUABLES, SUCH AS MONEY, CLOTHES, AND WALLET, WOULD HAVE BEEN TAKEN TO "SOUTHWOODS PRISON,' WHICH IS ACROSS THE STREET FROM KINTOCK.  I WAS EVEN GIVEN THE PHONE NUMBER TO CALL, WHICH I DID.  WHEN I CALLED AND SPOKE TO "SGT. ...", HE SAID IT IS NOT IN THEIR POLICY TO ACCEPT ANY VALUABLES OR BELONGINGS FROM KINTOCK RESIDENTS.  SO, WHERE, I ASK, DID JIMMY'S MONEY AND POSESSIONS DISAPPEAR TO?  YOU SEE, NO ONE I SPEAK TO SEEMS TO KNOW.  EVERYONE SEEMS TO BE PASSING THE BUCK...BUT GUESS WHAT!.....THE BUCK STOPS HERE.....WE WILL NOT LET THIS REST, UNTIL WE GET TO THE BOTTOM OF IT.........

WHEN I WORKED AS AN R. N., BELONGINGS AND VALUABLES OF PATIENTS WAS ALWAYS A BIG ISSUE.  THE MONEY HAD TO BE COUNTED BEORE 2-3 PEOPLE, IN FRONT OF THE PATIENT.  EACH DENOMINATION OF EACH BILL HAD TO BE WRITTEN DOWN, IN FRONT OF THE PATIENT...THEN IT WAS LOCKED IN A CANVES BAG, WITH A SPECIAL LOCK ON IT, AND CARRIED TO SECURITY AND PUT IN A SAFE *(this pertained to all valuables, such as keys, jewelry, dentures)........THIS IS A LOT OF "BULL" THAT KINTOCK DOES NOT KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO MY HUSBAND'S THINGS...........IS THIS ANY WAY TO RUN AN INSTITUTION?  WE WILL GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS...BELIEVE ME, WE WILL.......AND I'M SURE IN THE LONG RUN SOME POLICY CHANGES WILL BE MADE TO PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING TO OTHER RESIDENTS IN THE FUTURE. NOW, I WOULD LIKE TO ADDRESS ANOTHER ISSUE...

MANY RESIDENTS AT KINTOCK HAVE CELL PHONES...MAYBE EVEN HUNDREDS..CELL PHONES ARE NOT ALLOWED, AND YET, IT IS A KNOWN FACT, IN THE INSTITUTION, THAT THEY ARE LETTING SOME MEN GET AWAY WITH IT, AND OTHERS, LIKE MY HUSBAND ,  ARE SENT BACK TO PRISON FOR IT, DESPITE THE NEED FOR THIS CELL PHONE ON HIS JOB.........NOW, LET ME EXPLAIN...THIS IS A VERY UNFAIR POLICY AT KINTOCK, AND IT NEEDS TO BE CHANGED.  ............MY HUSBAND BEING SENT BACK TO PRISON, WHILE OTHER MEN GO FREE, AT THE DOING OF THOSE WORKING IN KINTOCK, WELL THIS IS UNFAIR, AND NEEDS TO BE STOPPED, ASAP.........

NOW, I WILL TELL YOU OF AN INCEDENT THAT TOOK PLACE AT KINTOCK SEVERAL WEEKS BEFORE THEY SENT MY HUSBAND BACK....THERE WAS A RESIDENT I WILL CALL "JB."  HE WAS FOUND WITH A CELL PHONE, ON THE PROPERTY OF KINTOCK..HE WAS TOLD BY KINTOCK, WE WILL NOT SEND YOU BACK TO PRISON, IF YOU"RAT" ON OTHER GUYS, AND TELL US WHO HAVE CELL PHONES.  JB, BY THAT TIME, HAD PLACED THE CELL PHONE IN HIS PANTS, IN HIS GROIN AREA...HE REFUSED TO GIVE IT UP.....THEN HE STARED TELLING WHO HAD CELL PHONES....HE WAS THEN ALLOWED TO KEEP THE CELL PHONE, WAS NOT SENT BACK TO PRISON, AND WAS RELEASED ON PAROLE A FEW DAYS LATER.  NOW, DO YOU THINK THIS IS FAIR?...TO ME, IT SEEMS ILLEGAL.  AS FOR JIMMY, HE GAVE OVER HIS PHONE IMMEDIATELY, AND EXPLAINED HE FORGOT TO LEAVE IT AT THE STORE THAT NIGHT....AND HE WAS TAKEN BACK TO PRISON RIGHT AWAY...........DOESN'T THAT SEEM A LITTLE FISHY TO YOU..THAT THESE KIND OF INCONSISTANCIES ARE GOING ON IN AN INSTITUTION.  A GOOD INSTITUTION MUST HAVE POLICIES, AND THESE MUST BE ABIDED BY........OBVIOSLY, IT SEEMS THAT THE PEOPLE WORKING THERE, ARE NOT FOLLOWING THE SAME POLICIES FOR EVERYONE...IT SEEMS POLICIES ARE BEING BROKEN, AND THAT IT DEPENDS WHO "YOUR FRIEND IS."

ALSO, I UNDERSTAND THAT OVER THE LOUD SPEAKER, KINTOCK MAKES ANNOUNCEMENTS TO PLEASE TELL ON YOUR FELLOW RESIDENT, IF THEY ARE USING A CELL PHONE....THIS IS NOT RIGHT.

WELL, GOOD-NIGHT EVERYONE!..........fran

Well Fran, that answers my question as to why jimmy didn"t tell them why he had the cell phone, he always left it at work and only used it on the job. No hon, I agree with you , none of this is fair to you and Jimmy . Unfortunately, lifes not fair. I am keeping you both in my prayers and wishing the best for you. MERRY CHRISTMAS FRAN AND JIMMY, MAY NEXT YEAR BE BETTER. LOVE AND HUGS CYNDY, IL. USA

I hope you are able to get some more of his stuff back or at least let them know that that sort of thing should not be tolerated.  They often use rats to get what they want out of others in prison....they let one go so they can get many more others...sad but it seems many of them are willing to do it.
