Let me know what you think. I also have another backdrop that I'm going to put up as well, so stay tuned, okay, without further ado, let's go ahead and get started. really good question so in prison the day is exactly the same you can't celebrate your birthday it's not like the staff are like oh kent it's your birthday happy birthday round of applause no the day is exactly the same every day is the same but on at the end of the day many people not always some people choose not to celebrate but many times people would get together and make a meal for their friend and he was there if it was his birthday they made nachos or a log. or a brick or a burrito or any of the recipes you've seen me make before cooking in that bag and making a big meal for everyone.

pr son q a your questions answered...

There are many different names for it, so yes, they would make a meal and then do it. make a cake so whatever kind of cake that person lights up whether it's cheesecake or chocolate cake or fudge or whatever so yeah they would celebrate in their own way whether you do an interview with a friend from prison on this channel yeah definitely have the friends I've still been in contact with after prison who are doing really well so yeah I can definitely do it. I really want to do it for the podcast, at least, oh, if you didn't know, I have a podcast, it's linked. down well, what books did you read in prison? anything and everything i can get my hands on anything there was a time in my prison beds i just wanted to read legal books legal stuff so i would read anything i could get my hands on if i could get a series even if it was kind of boring, even if it was like Twilight.
pr son q a your questions answered
I would read them all just because I liked having a series, so I knew I was going to get down to business with this book. I had another book. to get on with it so i've liked books i could over-like so i've read every kind of book series you've ever seen in a movie i've read tons of what other people say are boring legal books, I've read every John Grisham book every Hunter Thompson book every single there's so many guys anything I could get my hands on I'd gobble up good can you at least get ibuprofen if you were in severe pain?
pr son q a your questions answered
Yes you have to pay for it but yes you can get ibuprofen. Do you miss someone you met in prison? few life sentences that I definitely miss I think about today when someone is serving a life sentence it's very difficult to serve a life sentence I guess obviously I'm not serving a life sentence but there are only people who have been to prison. 20 30 40 year olds have a different outlook on life and a lot of times they want to share the wisdom they've learned over the years with someone and I've had a lot of really deep and meaningful conversations with women who are serving life sentences there were times where she disagreed as to why they were serving life in prison as a victim of domestic violence who killed her husband.
I've met a lot of people in that situation so you know there was a lot I didn't understand A lot of people I've met serving life in prison other times I agreed with the sentence but it's something that's very different to see you know they just walk around different after being there for 30 or 40 years, that's their life and I was always very interested in talking to lifers because they usually have a very different outlook on life and they usually don't always generally want to stop seeing you go back to prison I've known a lot of them that just don't like short timers don't like to see people come and go because they would do anything for that chance to get out of jail and when they see people keep continually going back to jail affects them a lot, you know?
I had plenty of chances and in many cases a mistake led to life in prison so yeah is there anyone to give you insight into how things work or did you just have to figure it out to let the prison staff know if you are a first timer they don't know what to do they will tell you what to do don't worry if you go to jail and you don't know what to do there is someone who will tell you what to do they yell for everything you know chow hall it's hard to eat when you're new you've never been to one jail before it's hard to understand what they say because these dormitories are huge you know they're like huge gyms so when an officer opens the door and yells OH it echoes and if your country I didn't get them right so it took me a while to understand a southern accent so not only did i have a hard time in the south to hear it but it echoed so i was like oh there was even a correctional officer at the county jail who kept saying my name in the mail and you know what i was sitting in the living room and she said she couldn't she couldn't and i guess apparently she said it so many times like so many days in a row and she finally walked up to me she said "you can't" and i was like what and she said it again new like you're kent is what he's asking I'm like oh yeah that means I got your email I'm like oh sorry I misunderstood you but I love southern accents it was just hard to understand at first so I don't know if that answer your question, there are certain facilities that have like an admissions barracks so it will sit there until you're sorted which could take a couple of weeks and then the folks in the admissions barracks will tell you what to do and they will tell you there is a time posted and you can schedule to go to the doctor and they will just give you the ropes. i feel like yes ok i feel like he

answered

prison affected his mental health at first he felt defeated being locked up for the first time um i didnt have the mental health knowledge or the verb in me to know that what i was experiencing It was PTSD I just didn't have I don't understand, so it affected my mental health, but I didn't realize that until a long time ago. later until i had been going back and forth a few times you know what i mean so yeah but at first i didn't know what was going on.
I didn't even really understand that I was fighting depression. sad as hell sometimes and it was hard to get out of it. I didn't really understand how that worked if that makes sense, so yes, but I didn't understand and start to heal until many years later. where does a prison inmate usually have three three pairs of underwear three pairs of socks one pair of long johns three uniforms a hat sometimes a jacket and gloves if you're serving time in new york those upstate greens and yeah that's everything and what is it a sheet set? A set of sheets.
Two blankets. Yeah, what's the best snack you could buy at the commissary? been beaten by other inmates yes yes how do you groom your body hair in prison? oh you can buy r razors in the commissary at certain facilities and other facilities you have to sign a razor and then you can use it and then you have to throw it in front of the correctional officer and you have to show them the blade and then you can put it on them in a bit like band of danger or whatever every facility is different but you can shave your legs and your other bits in prison what do you do if you get busted with acrylics on how do you get them off in jail oh girl um through the pain dont you just have to let grow a little and then you can take one of the threads you can pull from the commissary and put thread between your nail and pull it out or just rip them off like an OG would do you know this sucks there may be a video I didn't see but can you tell us how is giving birth in prison? yes that video is always linked below how much money do you need in prison to survive that too and i will link it under our son Children are allowed to visit their relatives in jail.
You are amazing. Thanks. Yes, that is up to the family and parental discretion. They want to take a child to a visiting gift, but they can. There are many female guards. If so, were they more lenient? That's a really interesting question in my experience, hell no, in my experience the female officers were a little bit more aggressive than the male officers because they had to prove they were tough, prove that people couldn't walk over them and she was just different so out of all the female correctional officers i have known in my time i have only met one maybe two who were forgiving and understanding and kind if that makes sense a lot of female correctional officers have to prove they are tough , which shouldn't be, but it is what it is and there weren't a lot of corrections officers in women's prisons and I know it sounds crazy, but it was the majority of corrections officers.
Women in women's prisons are men did you have a relationship close to small euphoria in prison? I always get asked this I'm straight I've never been in a gay relationship so no I haven't but I was in a relationship with my ex boyfriend and I was a prison girlfriend but while I was in prison no which one did you like better? Open beds or individual cells. Individual cells all day because at least you have some privacy. You're just pooping in front of one person. all day I really, really, really didn't like open bedrooms because as you can imagine living with 50 women with 50 different personalities and 50 different crimes and 50 different mental illnesses because we're all hurt is not good, it's just not ok so it was very hard to live with so many women and share a small bathroom with so many women, yes so single cells all day they allowed you to go to the bathroom anytime you wanted to go to the bathroom?
Do you mean shower? I guess this person is not American if you mean the shower no sometimes they were locked in certain facilities I was in you couldn't go to the shower during the day and it was open at certain hours in other facilities it was open but really they didnt like you back the shower during those hours so every facility is different if you mean laundry no you cant go where you want to go like in wentworth or even orange is the new black there just walk there just wandering around walking around ti know they only go to the food hall or to the doctor there everywhere the right card they can come and go as they please that's right it's not like that there are certain times for everything certain times for Chow certain times for laundry work certain times for the showers at certain times for the library so yeah you can't just walk and there are doors you have to go through wherever you go so what e yes, you can't run somewhere very fast unless all the doors are closed. pen and i promise it won't be the most important thing prison taught you that's hard prison taught me how strong i am because you don't know how strong you are until being strong is the only thing you can do prison taught me the need to reduce speed and reflect and be self-aware there were many there were many lessons I learned while in prison but if I hadn't taken that time to learn those lessons I wouldn't have learned them, really I used my last prison sentence as a moment of self-reflection as a moment to take a long hard look in the mirror.
I really took that time to figure out what kind of person and what kind of mother I wanted to be. Is there any musical art activity at the prison, such as choral art classes or photography? No, but it would be great if there was a music class or an art class, even photography, that's epic. Yeah that's happened in some jails but I've never seen an art class or anything so it's cold in prison girl it's cold in the winter and hot as hell in the summer so don't break the law can you show us how to make a homemade tampon?
Do you really want to see me do it? I don't want young girls to see that and think they can do it because it's so unsafe, that's why I haven't done it yet, but if they really want to do it, maybe I'll put it on my Patreon page. I don't want you to know what I'm saying like young girls just starting their cycle to see that it would be like oh I can do mine you know I say so I've been hesitant to do it. that, so I don't know, let me know in the comment section below and if you really want that video, I'll film it and put it on Patreon.
What is the average time that inmates stay in jail until they are given a jail term? sentence that is that range is all the way from three to six months toa year or two depending on what you're fighting if you're fighting a murder case we're not going years you have to wait if you don't have bail or can't post bail so you know I've seen people like me go through a probation violation and you know I'm through the system in a few weeks but if you're fighting a new case it can take months the fastest I've ever seen someone come in with a new case and be sent to prison for months maybe it's faster in New York which in the south so in Arkansas it took six months but I was fighting my case and I turned down a couple of different ones please my friend Jason who had a federal case it took him about 15 months to get to prison and he was a habitual felon had been through the process many times, but if your case is federal, it takes much longer.
Is it easy to hide things in prison? It is if he were professional. Yes and no. sense, whereas yes, it's how easy it is to hide things from an inmate's point of view if officers keep finding their hiding place. Whether it's in the open areas or in your cell, you have to keep thinking of new creative ways to hide certain things. things, so yes and no, there are conversation groups or support groups, you could go to NA or AAA and that would be as a volunteer. I would come once a week for a while and a lot of times the spaces were pretty full and it was hard to go to them not always I mean there were certain facilities that were smaller and I could go I could go when I could go when I could I wanted to go as far as to support groups, not as often as you'd think mental health would do certain types of group sessions, like self-harm or certain very specific things, but I didn't see it often, I just saw it, you know? maybe once or twice, a lot of times they would create support groups and then some of the women who were apart were able to come together and then there would be fights or whatever, so it's complicated to run a complex. from three to you know five thousand inmates cert Some inmates have to be kept apart for certain reasons and I can do a whole video on that if you want but a lot of the support groups closed for a lot of different reasons so yeah do they have what to pay taxes? prison no, because you're not making money unless you have permission to work and those slots are pretty rare and women don't get permission to work as much as men so I guess you're going to pay taxes if you're on permission to work because that it's technically a job but if you don't make an income you won't pay taxes so no if you were there for life you can go to an OB/GYN you can get an annual check up there is a doctor there if you need anything or something is bad, but you can get an annual checkup with your OB/GYN.
I think I'm pretty sure you've ever seen people cry from being so scared. I saw a lot of women come in crying terrified and shocked because they can't get a tampon I mean it's a lot when someone who has never been to jail before going to jail is hard and it's emotional and they're scared so yeah I've seen women go crying terrified and shocked by the conditions in which you have. live so yeah its hard for people i have never been through it before and i think everyone should spend a night in jail just once just to see what it is like before forming such hard views on prison reform just my opinion how do prisons handle medicine the same way nursing homes have a medical cart and it's locked all the time and inmates will have to line up for my call you line up for everything it's just lines forever in prison and one by one, you go upstairs and take your pill and they have to make sure you swallow your pill and then you can go back to your unit and it's usually pill calls like three times a day or something.
How long would it take you? to collect all the ingredients to cook in prison you buy it in the commissary commissary like once a week if you don't have money they send you from the street I would have to hurry so I didn't have much money I would make eyebrows I would trade contraband for certain things. He would pass kites if he had to which was a letter from one inmate to another so he had a lot of different hustles he would do in prison so yeah he would rush them like ok do you want me to? your eyebrows that's it I'm going to need two soups and a bag of chips or whatever I needed so if my hands were really cut and bleeding midday eyebrows would happen all the time all the time my hands were always so dry and the rope would open my fingers.
I would charge a little more. How do people respond to someone who says they are innocent? He usually rolls his eyes. Many people say they are innocent in jail or say they didn't. he or his boyfriend did it or you know a lot of people blame others yeah i met a lot of people who said they were innocent and we are usually like that that sucks but don't think about it too much cause i'm sure some people are innocent i'm sure they are but you hear it so often you're like a man i don't want to say you don't really think about it too much and as i said before i have met people who i believe 100% are innocent that i think they shouldn't be serving a life sentence for killing someone their husband was beating them for two decades you know what i mean that was hard for me to see that was hard for me to see but i haven't lied to an inmate before they said that she didn't do what she did and then when i got out i was able to find the police report there's a whole story about that i just haven't been ready to share it because i thought that person was my friend so anyway did your kids know what were you in prison?
PS I love your channel yes I love you for saying that yes my kids know I went to ha. I do think it's important to have an open home where we talk about our past mistakes. I think it's important to talk about addiction, prison, and mental health, as long as it's age appropriate, but I want my kids to know they can come to me with anything, so sharing my past with them hasn't been the little girl, she is three years old, but sharing my past with my eldest daughter has been something that I think is really important, do you regret going to prison? that was so negative and so horrible and turning it into something positive you know i don't regret my last offer especially because i learned so much it saved my daughter's life it changed mine i don't regret prison and i'm thankful for that time i spent away off the streets and sober do you think prison do you think prison is an effective deterrent not usually any prison is like a war zone awash in drugs and chaos and drama and negativity so no i don't think prison is a good deterrent maybe for some but those of us who have been through it before see it for what is corrupt and wrong and there is no rehab behind those walls if you want to change your life it's up to you you're not going to learn anything in a prison class that will change your life it's just me speaking from my personal experience and the experience that I have seen that you know in my life with other friends that I have met you have to decide that you are going to change your life you can decide to do your time as a criminal or you can decide to do your time wisely and learn about yourself and prepare for the street so yeah i don't think i think prison is a deterrent for drug addicts i think prison it's an important part of our society I think violent criminals absolutely need to go to prison I think drug addicts need treatment and I'm very firm in my belief that if you save money by working in prison today I'll let you take it when you're released yeah like if your family is sending you money or you really have a job that pays you money yes you can the prison will write you a check and take it with you when you get out of prison people have pets like flies or other strange animals yes they do I have seen women treat of keeping all sorts of things from a frog to a cricket so yeah do you think women focus more on beauty in prison than when they go in no more than usual normal? we want to feel better about ourselves so it's good for you sometimes it's good for our mental health to put on a little makeup and feel like a normal person especially behind those walls because you don't feel like the person you feel like a number anymore, so it's very demeaning, it's very dehumanizing to go through that process, so yeah, I don't know if that answers that question, were different jobs paid differently?
I did not earn money. I don't know why this is a very common question as I never go I didn't pay for any work I did in prison I didn't fill the equipment Neither the laundry nor the kitchen Never I never earned a penny working 12 hour days in prison Never even once You have to have a specific job on work-release to earn money while you're in jail from prison, apart from that your family has to send you money so you can buy food and hygiene or you have to work hard to get it so yeah i feel like i said that too harshly but i'm like ah guys always ask me that and i'm like no no no no no i don't make money unless you're in federal prison in federal prison you made money for jobs what do you have in state prison the Genki of all prisons you are nothing nothing zip zero nothing you did some fun activity in prison you just got out of prison mind it was a fun day um yeah i mean you can play volleyball i guess basketball im solid with a 3 point you know i mean i can shoot hoops pretty good im playing on a team thats not really my forte introvert but yeah do you think i will never run out of things to say about the prison. don't think i'll never run out of things to say what did you do to pass your jail time you don't sit around all day in jail that's the county jail in jail you have to go to work you have to know you're going to eat you're going to work you're going to the playground there are a lot of things to do you know how to read a book write a letter it's busy the prison runs like a small town so you don't sit around doing nothing usually unless i mean usually just We will say that I do not want to confuse you, are there children in prison like 15 or 16 years old?
By the way, I love you and your channel. In many cases, they would be at a different Center. juvenile detention center but I've seen 17 year olds in prison, I was one of them, there were a lot of race/ethnicity exclusion clicks where how long did we split by race? I had friends of all different races and I never felt like I couldn't be friends with them, so it's different in a women's prison than it is in a men's prison. I definitely know a lot of guys who said they couldn't associate with a different race which sucks because there is only one race the human race in my opinion so you know how you are the toilets are pretty bad and how hard and uncomfortable which is to poop in front of everyone. like your first two weeks in jail, maybe you think, oh, i don't even poop after that, you like it, you don't even care, it is what it is, we all have to get over it and poop if you have food allergies to gluten. and dairy so exedra you are aren't you housed in prison if you're allergic to soy and you go to prison in nyc they serve soy meat so I'm really that would work um I think you're accommodated for kind of kind of I don't have any of those problems if you're allergic to dairy just don't drink the milk you can drink water you know there's not a lot of that stuff in prison anyway how is christmas in prison it's like any other day except maybe we'll have a cinnamon bun or something for breakfast there are food options for people who work vegetarian or vegan yes but you know in nyc you get soy meat so would you rather spend a year in the county or a year in jail?
Oh my gosh, a year in prison all day. County jail time is stuck. do anything you know what i mean like me a year in county seems like hell a year in county is a hard time i know it seems otherwise but like prisons are so much better than county jail what happens if women or men have piercings, do they get them removed? or let them stay you taking everything out everything you have a piercing take it out you have a tampon inside you have to take it out like everything you have to take everything off every little piece of jewelry every little piece of everything and if you have an earring and plant it in your face, good luck how many inmates are actually interested in programming many times not interested at all they just want to take the program to get a time reduction does prison feel like a quarantine in an absolutely no way?
In my house this doesn't feel like a prison to me at all no and I hate that comparison because prison is a horrible place and I love my home so no no not even a bit hey last because I feel like we've been here for a while. What is your worst memory from prison giving birth to my daughter? It was the hardest for me. It was absolutely the most traumatic and the most difficult thing for me that I have ever experienced in my life. I hope I have answered most of yourquestions. I know there were some I didn't understand, maybe we can make this a part for you.
I love you guys stay safe stay sober please don't break the law. I will answer your questions about the prison. good bye guys
