GO TO "PRISON TALK"

HI EVERYONE!

WHEN YOU GET A CHANCE , GO TO THE FOLLOWING WEB-SITE...IT IS REALLY GREAT, AND YOU WILL LEARN ALOT ABOUT THE PRISON SYSTEM IN OUR COUNTRY, AND EXACTLY WHAT IS GOING ON.  THERE ARE 2 WEB-SITES, AS IT IS CURRENTLY BEING SWITCHED OVER TO BLOGSPOT.  WHAT I READ ON HER MSN, LITERALLY GAVE ME NIGHTMARES, TO KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE PRISON SYSTEM, IN OUR COUNTRY.

STEFFI, THE EDITOR, IS LOOKING FOR MALE INMATES TO WRITE THEIR "VIEW" OF PRISON.  SO, YES, YOU GOT IT!  I TOLD JIMMY ABOUT IT EARLIER TODAY, AND HE IS NOW WRITING SOMETHING, WHICH HE WILL SEND ME....ALSO, HE IS TELLING OTHER INMATES, AND I'M SURE THEY ARE ALL BUSY WRITING ESSAYS.....JIMMY WILL CALL ME IN ABOUT 20 MINUTES, SO I'LL FIND OUT THEN.

A LOT OF YOU ARE WORRIED JUST WHY JIMMY HAS NOT BEEN MOVED OUT OF "CRAF," AND INTO THE NEW FACILITY YET....WE ARE ACTUALLY HOPING THAT IT IS WEDNESDAY OF THIS WEEK. YOU SEE, I HAVE SOMETHING IMPORTANT ON TUESDAY, AND I NEED MY HUSBAND'S SUPPORT ON THE PHONE....ONCE HE MOVES TO THE NEW FACILITY, WE WILL LOSE CONTACT FOR AT LEAST A FEW DAYS, UNTIL HIS PIN NUMBER CAN GO THROUGH.....AND SO, ONCE AGAIN, MY WONDERFUL HUSBAND IS ACTUALLY SACRIFICING HIMSELF, IN THE 9X8 FT. CELL, JUST SO HE CAN STAY IN COMMUNICATION WITH ME.....SO, ACTUALLY, WE ARE PRAYING HE STAYS RIGHT WHERE HE IS UNTIL AT LEAST WEDNESDAY.

THIS PAST WEEK THERE WAS A NEW SHOW ON TV, CALLED "IN JUSTICE."  I THINK IT WILL BE A BIG HIT, SINCE THE TREND IN OUR COUNTRY SEEMS TO BE TV SHOWS ABOUT CRIMINALS, THE JUSTICE SYSTEM, AND PRISONS, ETC....AROUND 10 MINUTES INTO WATCHING THE SHOW, I KNEW I LIKED IT.  WHY?  THE WIFE OF THE PRISONER, WHO IS WRONGFULLY LOCKED UP, FOR KILLING SOMEONE, IS TRYING TO PROVE HE IS INNOCENT.  SHE STANDS IN FRONT OF THE LAWYER AND SAYS, "HOW FAR ARE YOU STANDING IN FRONT OF ME?"     "AROUND 8 FEET," HE REPLIES.  "THAT IS EXACTLY THE SIZE OF MY HUSBAND'S PRISON CELL. FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE.  THAT IS THE EXTENT OF HIS WORLD, FOR 24 HOURS/ DAY,...EVERYDAY." SHE ANSWERS.  WELL, I IMMEDIATELY LIKED HER.  THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I HAVE BEEN TELLING YOU HERE, THAT JIMMY HAS BEEN IN A CELL THAT SIZE, SINCE THE FIRST WEEK OF DECEMBER.  AND AS YOU KNOW, JIMMY WAS CLEARED OF THE CELL PHONE CHARGES.  IT WILL BE COMPLETELY REMOVED FROM HIS RECORDS.  BUT BECAUSE OF THE SLOWNESS AND OVER-CROWDEDNESS OF THE PRISONS, JIMMY IS STILL IN THAT SMALL CELL, AND I FEEL IT IS INHUMANE, AND VERY UNHEALTHY, PHYSICALLY, AND MENTALLY, TO PUT PEOPLE IN SUCH TINY AREAS......WHO AM I TO SAY?  I'M NO ONE. BUT NOW, EVEN A POPULAR TV SHOW, IS SHOWING THE PUBLIC WHAT GOES ON, BEHIND CLOSED DOORS...................AND SO, "IN JUSTICE, " THAT WOMAN'S HUSBAND, STARING BLANKLY, SITTING ON HIS BED, WITH BARS BEFORE HIM..................AND OF COURSE, YOU GUESSED IT...HE WAS INNOCENT AT THE END, AND SET FREE.........

NITE...JIMMY WILL CALL ME SOON.............FRAN
