Closing Advice

Interview with Zach

JM: What else would you want a friend or family member to know if they have a loved one going to this jail?
Zach: Do not expect the staff to care that you have a problem. They are there to collect a paycheck and nothing more. I witnmessed three guards verbally abuse an inmate who was behind a glass wall for an half hour just for the fun of it. The female guard of the three yelled obsenities and sexual insults at the inmate that shocked me beyond belief. This pales in comparison to when an inmate was suffocated by six guards who couldn't restrain him, when they sat on his chest. He died and the whole thing was covered up.

JM: If somebody knows they will be serving time in this jail what is your advice to them?
Zach: Do not give the outward appearance of being weak. You will have your stuff stolen and be abused at every turn. The guards are even in on this, since they despise being there as much as you do. No one there has any respect for human life, including the staff. it is survival at its very best.
