Just some tidbits gathered from my visits to Lee.
1. In the hallway on the way to the visiting area, there is an area with photos.
They are of the prison with lightening striking, the grounds, and the guard tower at sunset.
I always snicker. As if it’s something beautiful. They should sell postcards! (just kidding)
2. There are female guards in this men’s prison. Feminism run a muck I think.
Lee says the women guards walk right into the shower if they want to say something to the inmates.
It’s humiliating to say the least. I think it’s highly inappropriate.
3. Listening to the couples around us fighting during their visit is not pleasant.
I try to remember that they are hurting people. Unlike Lee and I most of them don’t know the Lord. I don’t know how I’d make it without God.
4. One guard in the visiting area is a very cranky man. I pray for him. I don’t know his name. I think he outranks the other guards. Yesterday, I saw guards jump and scatter when this guard entered the room.
He seems to enjoy humiliating the inmates in front of the entire visiting room.
I absolutely know that the guards are in charge. I know there are rules that must be followed and order that must be maintained.
I just think he could do so without screaming at inmates in front of the entire room. His actions always add an unpleasant atmosphere to the visit. It’s hard to know what will set him off.
