JM: How often could you receive visitors? Zach: You could get a couple of vists per week from
the same person, but I don't think there was a
restriction on the number of visits you could
get. If you were causing too much of a problem,
they could restrict your visits or force you to
have them behind closed glass. Then you would
talk with a phone.
JM: Was the check-in process lengthy for those who came to see you? Zach: It would usally take about twenty minutes to
check in, but if there were no openings, you
could not get a visit at all. They could not
bring anything in, except bottles or diapers for
a baby. They could strip search your visitors
if they suspected something so many people would
not bother even coming.
JM: What was the visiting environment like? Zach: You would sit across a table from your loved
ones with everyone else without being able to
touch them. You could only get thirty minutes
to see them and most people didn't even want to
visit. The guards would be stnading right there
making sure you didn't get anything passed to
you, or become too violent with your visitor.
