In Jessamine County jail, in Kentucky, up until about 2 weeks ago, the prisoners who had the money, could buy their personal choice of drugs from the
jailers. Oops. An inmate exposed these guys and gals. More arrests to follow after the first three, which included the arrest of the Captain of the
jail. Yep, money and/or influence can make your incarceration a more comfortable experience. Heh. I served time in the Cincinnati Workhouse in the
1970's. It was a facility built in the late 1860's. It was basically a most uncomfortable experience for me. Heh. I deserved it. I earned it. Yeah,
there were some inmates that seemed to have it easier than others. Lucky them! No exercise facilities other than a basketball court outside. But, if
you were white, you were not allowed to participate. No way. No how. And the guards didn't patrol or control that area. So I used to go to this one
little cell that was set aside as a library and check out books. I did learn a lot there. I learned a lot about how to commit crimes. I did not use
this knowledge, however, because, duh, it was taught to me by people who were repeat offenders. heh heh. But I read books and expanded my mind much
more than I had while I was in school. I suggest everyone go to hell for a little bit and learn.
Strange, though, the one man who helped me expand
my mind intellectually the most, by directing me to different books, was a repeat offender. Meanwhile, I learned many lessons and never went back. I
was actually sad when the place was demolished a few years later. The place certainly was an advantage for me. And I guarantee you, the county jails
in Hamilton County, Ohio, now, do not provide the good guidance that this place gave me.
