This just in: “Visitation for the Atlanta Federal Prison Camp has been suspended until further notice.” This is the word from that main grinch at this prison, Camp Administrator Johnny Butts. This announcement was made yesterday, December 11, 2014.
How long the lockdown will continue is anybody’s guess. This action has been taken because prison officials can’t seem to control the influx of cell phones that are in this prison. Every day someone is caught in possession of a cell phone. And when that person is caught, he does what any scumbag does, he rolls over on those he knows has cell phones.
The person caught becomes a “snitch.” There is no honor among thieves. And its amazing to see these so-called tough guys strutting around here flaunting authority. Then when they get caught it’s a different story. One such tough guy started sniveling and crying like a baby when guards placed the handcuffs on him. It was amazing. Where was the glib, self confident guy who thought he was above the rules and regulations before he was caught???
They are all the same. They want to be tough guys when faced with the punishment they deserve but are not willing to be quiet and accept their punishment. Instead, the first thing they do is start singing like canaries. They tell on everybody they know about and they don’t stop talking until they have spilled all the beans.
The result is the rest of us are locked down until further notice. This is not unusual. We have been locked down continuously since September 3rd. The rest of us get punished for the activities of the tough guys.
So with less than two weeks before Christmas, a lot of inmates may not be able to see their families. Visitation is suspended until further notice and there may be other punishments as well.
To the readers of this short entry Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
