Other inmates can walk by you and make fun at you. and 90% of the time your misrepresented as a pedophile or some sort of pervert. And if you do get out of your CELL it's in chains !!! shackles on your feet,and a chain around your waist /while hand cuffed ..your led around like an animal..Medications are NOT regulated properly if not with held,most meds are substituted for a cheaper fix, ?( There Motto,All inmates Lie And want to get HIGH !)....Being disabled is Not A crime but your forced to suffer all this Bull ..If you Tell the truth While your being committed.
