All I was attempting to do is set the record straight. Personally, I have always felt the purpose of the Department of Corrections should be to make prison a place you wouldn’t want to come back to once you’ve done your time. Unfortunately, our legislature has never agreed with that idea.

There’s no gym for him to access, and the weights were taken off the prison yards in the 1990s when things like the shaving policy were instituted. He may get a job in PI (Prison Industries) such as making hardwood floors for Anderson Flooring and if he does he makes minimum wage. Out of his wage he pays room and board, restitution (whether or not he has a victim). It may be better than he deserves, but it’s not as good as people think. Oh yeah, there’s no cable TV either. They may purchase a 7″ tv for themselves, but it costs them around $250 Plus postage. The postage is in case they catch a charge, the TV is mailed home and once they go 1 year incident free, they can petition to purchase another one.

When Jon Ozmint was leading SCDC, he requested that the FCC allow him to block signals inside the fences of his institutions (this would make cellphones useless) and was told that was illegal and he could not install the scramblers. Furthermore, there are individuals who for a fee will guarantee you they can get a package to the inmate of your choice for a fee and they do this by throwing loaded footballs over the fences and if they are spotted by the officers in the towers, there is nothing we could do to them by law. We were required to notify the local sheriff’s office and have them come out and investigate (the guys were always gone by then). The problem with SCDC is that EVERYONE from Trikki on down the line wants it to operate like a submarine….. silent and deep. They don’t want to fund it like other law enforcement agencies. When I worked there we were required to wear “stab vests” in our lock-up units which were actually surplus bullet proof vests discarded by the Highway Patrol several years earlier. When I inquired with Safariland (the vest manufacturer) about the vests, I received an e-mail stating the vest panels were more than 5 years old (they were manufactured in 1993 and it was 2008 at the time) and the vests offered NO stab protection. When I showed the e-mail to the Captain, he read the letter and asked me if I liked my job and if I did I would keep my mouth shut. This is the mentality of the Department of Corrections.
