  19. Charlene Thu, Mar 28 2013 11:11 PM

    I dont know what the hell is going on there but no one will tell you anything! if you are EVER fortunate enough to talk to anyone they wont tell you anything! I am told through relieble sources that this place is all about money and dont bgive a damn about the inmates OR their families! am told there are 3 toilets to 75 people! only 2 hours for all those to shower! no place to put everyone seperate in the event of a huge fight,etc. if they get commisary the prices are outrageous. if moved from somewhere else they cannot take items they have bought such as tv,etc. must send this stuff home! their visits are only 2 or 3 hours even for family that must drive 10, 15 hours to see them! cant have any pictures of their loved ones. the list goes on and on. we must all band together and find out why this is going on. these people are treating our loved ones like animals! they are also treating us as prisoners by taking visitations that have already been earned by the inmates. I was told by Santa Fe that they would still get their trailer visits yet I was told by Otero that they ndont have trailers for visits! what the HELL! someone needs to get their stories straight! the families have a right to answers. I have been told by Otero "oh we wont know until they get here"!!!! It is my OPINION that this is ALL ABOUT MONEY for Otero and to hell with the inmates and their families! come on people! lets here from you if you have someone there or going there. lots of questions need to be answered and if they have nothing to hide why wont they answer these questions???!!!! is Otero equiped to house level 3 prisoners? dont think so. send comments please.

    Just fifteen minutes ago I heard from my dad. He got transferred out of Santa Fe this morning and just arrived. He could only tell me the address and nothing more. I'm going to have to wait for more info. and from what I've been reading, I'm nervous and worried like hell. Dad's old and infirm and this general population/congested situation is scaring me. Do they really have such minimal bathrooms/showers? Is this just a stopping point to another place for everyone? Can someone tell me anything? Thank you.
