After church today, I went to visit Lee. As I walked up the hall to the visiting room, I thought, “Ok. This is my last prison visit.” I certainly hope it is
We’re down to 2 days.
We’ve heard that the guards like to mess with people when their time is almost up.
I guess that’s right because the visit started out with Lee getting a conduct report for arriving in the visiting room at 12:16.
He was sent from his unit at 12:00. They aren’t supposed to have movement for 10 minutes before count which is at 12:25.
It’s not Lee’s fault that his unit’s guards sent him to the visiting room. It’s their option to send them or say that the inmate has to wait.
The guard on duty today is a horrible man. He screams and yells and humiliates prisoners on a regular basis.
We heard him screaming at a lot of people today and I also heard him bellering “You’re getting a conduct report” to a few other people.
Well, about 1/2 hr before my visit was up, Lee had to use the bathroom. I said, “even with him up there? You’re going to get in trouble.”
Lee went to ask permission to use the bathroom, there were a few prisoners at the desk.
I don’t know exactly what happened, but I saw Lee sit down at the table (where they sit until the guard gives them permission to approach the desk). Then the guard screamed, “You go in the shake down room” and all the guards left the room with Lee.
I heard a LOT of banging which frightened me . Then the nasty guard came to me and said, “Your husband is going to the hole for his attitude” He grabbed Lee’s jacket and I had to leave.
I don’t even know what happened yet. I really hope that Lee bit his tongue but I wouldn’t be surprised if he said something to the guard.
I am also worried that they were throwing him around. There was so much banging that I haven’t heard ever before when I’ve been there.
My afternoon was really stressful. I have to be honest that I am worried that they hurt him. I am almost certain that they cannot keep him past Tuesday even though he was sent to the hole today.
I don’t know though. Everything about his case has been opposite of what should happen.
I guess that I will see if I can go visit him tomorrow and hear what happened. I don’t know if they will even let me visit him. If they do, it will be in the booth over the phone.
During the visit this afternoon, my husband said, “You know we just can’t give up right now. It’s like we’re running a marathon and we have to run 25 miles and we’re at mile 20 right now. We have to keep hanging on.”
I was so encouraged when he shared this with me. I am praying tonight that he is still holding onto that thought. I’m praying that he doesn’t give up.
You can pray for me too. I am feeling like “What’s the use” tonight. Everything just seems to constantly go wrong.
