no my best friend was though, i think i would cry if i ever went to jail, i would never survive i'm to weak for all that!
No but I did work in a Jail library once.
There's not too much to tell, it was a Maximum security, and we'd get the inmates come in with their guard, or we'd take the books out to the different areas. There was one area where the real crazies were who were locked up in solitary cells. All the inmates were very polite, because if they were naughty they'd get privileges taken away. We had this guy who in America killed these two boys, and he was always photocopying all this law crap, thinking it would get him off from being sent home, but they sent him home anyway.
sent home????? They sent a killer home? I am sure that is not what you meant.
As in they sent him back to America to get tried and locked up.
Once, overnight. It wasn't bad. All that stuff about rape is exaggerated.
Clearly, the odds were 0.0% because it didn't happen!:-) I say it's exaggerated not based solely on that experience. I've worked alongside many men who did hard time, and prison culture was explained to me. There's pitchers and catchers, and they mostly keep to themselves. They do the same thing in daily life. Most inmates just want to do their time and get out. In the US, the threat of rape is used by law enforcement as additional incentive for citizens to behave. It's barbaric. Most civilized nations don't behave that way.
Maybe I have. 💀
Yes. Once. For a few days.
18 months as a guest of the state of California
I went twice. Once for bringing explosives to school when I was 13 and another time for hitting my spouse.
I was different then and as for the explosives, I wasn't trying to hurt anyone. My friends and I had a pyrotechnic club, just for fun after school.
