“i was asking a qustion about my son in deer logge montana
how long he will be there for 20 years with 10 suppended and after
sex offender treatment and how long does the treatment take?”
[Sharong]

“Hey there sharong, My husband was in msp for a long time
and i asked him about your question and this is what he said : If
your son has to do only phase 1 of the treatment program then he'll
do probably 2 1/2 year's. If he has to do phase 2 it'll be 3-3 1/2
year's.
Hope that help's.” [skblackcrow]

“In an effort to stem a tide of recent inmate suicides at
Montana State Prison, Corrections Director Bill Slaughter said Friday
the agency is bringing in an outside expert for a top-to-bottom
review of the prison and is immediately hiring a deputy warden.
‘We think we're doing pretty well,’ Slaughter said.
‘We want an outside peer review to ask: Are we?’”

“I am writing with an inmate who is doing live in prison
in Deerlodge. I have asked him if it is possible for me to order
books for him at Barnes & Nobles… Does anyone here know
what the rules are at Deerlodge.” [Amanda]

“Amanda, I am sorry that I cannot answer your question about
sending books.... I hope someone comes along with more information
about packages to the prison. When I wake up in just 743 days...my
life will change forever...” [tebkrg]

“I sent Fred an Apache-English dictionary book from Barnes
& Noble for Christmas. Well, the property officer rejected it
because it didn't come from the Billings Barnes & Noble and
it wasn't ordered by Fred himself. Not only that, but Barnes &
Noble hasn't received it back and neither have I. Their rules say
books can be sent from Barnes & Noble, they don't say it has
to be the Billings, MT store, and they don't say the books have
to be ordered by the inmate, nor do they state that foreign language
dictionaries aren't allowed, so I think I deserve to protest that!”

“Is there anyone out there who has some really good love
poems that they wouldnt mind me using to send to my loved one. He
likes for me to write him poems but I'm not much of a poet?”
[ttnt]

“I miss you, my baby, and want to see you so bad. Your love
for me is the best that I have ever had…” [GG3]

“When You turn Me down, When You walk away, When You lose
the fire, When You disobey, When You scream My name, When You say
to go, When You push Me back, When You tell Me no, When You bruise
My hands, When You pierce My side, When You slap My face, If You
change inside, Will I still be there?” [xWickeDreamsX]

“Someone asked me to define what I mean by ‘normal’
… Normal, to me, is someone that just wants to be left alone
and minds their own business, and you can turn your back on them
without worrying about being stabbed...” [“Dead
Man Talking”]

“Have you seen what they feed our loved one? I was in the
visiting room when one of the guards came in with a tray, I asked
Dean "is that what they feed yall" yes he replyed. The
tray had a piece of bolongia, rice(dry), plain maccironi, and beans.
This is not a good meal. If a diabetic had to eat this his sugar
would be so high. I have seen this on many occasions, no vegatables
just starches. No wanunder the need canteen so much.END DOMESTIC
VIOLENCE” [rabbitala]

“I received a letter from my brother yesterday telling me
about the food.One day they served mexican food for supper at 5
pm and by 7am every unit had a waiting line for the bathroom and
500 people reported to sick call. Raisins have dead cockroaches
in them, rocks mixed in with the potatoes, spoiled milk for breakfast
and the beef is multi colored. Mice run somewhat freely in the kitchen
and coackroaches are everywhere in the kitchen, dining area and
food warehouse.LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!!!” [Pj'slittlesis]

“Don't eat anything with bacon, cuz it's all gonna rip you
a new one.” [Soul Sliver]

“We put chips on our burgers. It made them sort of crunchy
and gave them flavor.” [danielle]

“You mix one individual serving of crushed corn chips, one
crushed noodle soup, one crushed bag of BBQ potato chips together
in a plastic bag - thourghly combine these fine gourmet items then
add one to 1 1/2 cups of hot water to the bag, mix throughly, evenly
and seal the bag wrapping in a towel or a month old newspaper. Let
sit for 15 to 30 minutes unless you're starving. Empty the contents
into a paper plate, paper bag, or anything somewhat clean. Eat with
a fairly clean plastic spoon. It's a delight in convict cuisine…”
