Potential incarceration requires knowledge to obtain the appropriate mind set in preparation for such a difficult period in ones life. Answers to all of your questions. Knowledge is power, what you should know before you go.
(PRWEB) September 28, 2004 -- You probably won't be introduced to any
murderers, rapists, or child molesters at a federal prison camp, though you will
meet your share of pathological liars, con-artists and (in my opinion)
sociopaths. Not unlike myself however, there are also several very decent people
who just so happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time, got sucked in,
caught up, or simply just made a stupid mistake.
On the basis of this premise, I have committed to abstain from judgment and supposition, directing my focus to the potential inmate's current state of mind. A range of emotions can come into play when someone is faced with incarceration and the perception of helplessness or vulnerability is often the result.
Again, the role of this website is not to judge nor is it to defend. The objective is purely to inform, increase preparedness while strengthening coping skills and hopefully, set the stage for a more constructive experience.
When I eventually made it to the camp, I was told by several individuals to "stay below the radar". I had no problem with that but unfortunately, I had already been in the dreaded "hole" for 16 days while waiting for a bed to become available at the camp. Time spent in the hole is a very unpleasant experience.
To add salt to the wound, nobody had explained to me that a form needed to be filled out in order to get phone numbers approved prior to making any calls (be sure to ask for this form the day you arrive). So for 16 days, while everyone at home worried and wondered why they were not hearing from me, I lied awake in the hole wishing that I had been better informed. Unfortunately, there was nothing that could be done at that point.
I have taken the time to identify the most common areas of question and curiosity concerning life at the camp, and compiled the information into a unique and one of a kind resource. Informative, compassionate and everything you should Know before you GO.
