A New Orleans parish released a shocking video on Tuesday that shows inmates doing drugs, gambling, waving a hand gun and drinking beer.

usnews.nbcnews.com...




The full video is about 30 minutes long it shows inmates using heroin, drinking beer, popping pills, having cell phones, and a gun with bullets, inmates gambling with cash, and the real kicker inmates leave and go hang out on bourbon street and interact with civilians and police.

This all was recently brought out in court and now is making it's way across the web, towards the end of the video I watched an inmate was saying he was going to call CNN when he gets out because of this corruption. The condition of the prison was dismal, it looked very unsanitary.

I had also read about a man who was suing due to his son committing suicide in this prison he says because of the abuse that was allowed, There are accusations of rape by prisoners with the guards not doing anything about, and guards instigating fights.

Nobody is sure when exactly the video was recorded. Makes you wonder if this is happening to this extent in more places or if this was just the extreme case. Unchecked corruption over floweth.

Thankfully it was closed last year, disgusting it was allowed to ever be like it was.

I'm wondering what the purpose was for the video, who made it and who let it circulate? (Video cameras would be a trick to smuggle in? Camera phone?)

If you watch the video in the part that still photo is taken from, he does precisely what proves the gun isn't functional. You see him cycle the slide, ejecting what appears to be a live round and then, amazingly, pulling the trigger all the way to the rear of the trigger well.

Now it's no big secret of course, drugs get into prisons...even cell phones in shockingly large numbers. Beer though?? LARGE beer cans? I do believe some guards need to join the inmates without much question. Those were't smuggled in a body cavity by any inmate, I'd think.

What a corrupt horror show. Functional or not on the handgun, those sure looked like live rounds? The whole thing is just insane. California was busted hard many years ago on a huge state prison scandal for guards setting up "Gladiator" matches between inmates in one of the more hardcore of the prisons ..but even they weren't outright insane enough to hand or allow inmates to touch guns ...in working order or not. Geeze.. I'll bet some of those guys could fix it better than a gunsmith and with no "official" parts.

If inmates really had guns, why would they choose to stay in jail?

I don't buy it for one second.

I havent been able to watch the video but going off that statement alone, how does that prove the gun isnt functional? I think it proves it is functional but he only had one round chambered with no follow up rounds..

I can't watch the video, but I'll take your word for it... it's still curious as to why anyone would choose to stay in jail if they had the means to escape, and I see being armed as a means to escape... that's all

That's why I don't buy it... perhaps they stay because the gun doesn't work? O.o still very curious, and an IMMENSE failure on the part of the judicial system.

Some people in Canada commit minor crimes to they can go to jail for the winter time, most of these people are homeless and the quality of life behind bars beats winter on the street. What a sad world we live in!

Where there's a will, there's a way. Going by the dumbness of these criminals, it seems it would be beneficial to allow all inmates to own video cameras and upload their footage to youtube, in the absence of staff willing to carry out regular cell searches.

I am not in the right mindset to watch this video, but wanted to say that it could be more conditioning for FEMA camps and the way the lesserthanelites behave with one another. It is all propaganda, and we average Americans are the object of a worsening world view. The world is growing to hate us with no compassion every day.

Edit to say, oh crud I did watch a few minutes of the video posted above... life can be so corrupt, so dark and lost.

If you watch the vid through that part, the next thing he did was drop the magazine ..after cycling the slide, to show two rounds at least on the top of the stack. So, unless it malfunctioned on cycling, he ejected one and loaded another to look cool...but he pulled the trigger all the way back on a loaded chamber.

Now..I'd wonder on something else, to be honest. I load dummy rounds for myself and family to use in shooting practice. They are 100% indistinguishable in weight and appearance to a live round, unless you see the back end to see the last spent primer was never swapped for a fresh one. I use silica in place of gun powder on those and for mine, I use bright red nail polish on the base of the of the case and around the ridge so there is no doubt, seeing it at a quick glance. (they are for dropping on a dead click and seeing how much "jerk" there is in fighting recoil which, for that one, doesn't come ...but they cycle for real, so it's purely random for when they come up when someone else loads the magazine first)

It is a fair thing to say that we can't know those were live rounds just because they looked like it.

They would stay in jail because sometime they are tasked with running things not only on the inside but from the outside. I know where I work the kids are more comfortable in jail than on the outside...safer and three meals, laundry and video games...gain some weight, see the nurse or dentist and get out in a few months...drugs, cameras, guns can all be brought in by guards or snuck in..female staff fall for inmates all the time and soon trouble follows behind because the inmates threaten to expose the relationship or the partner is to dumb to figure out how a bad thing can get so much worse..

many would choose to stay in prison because they can do anything they want there if the gaurds are all bought and paid for who is going to stop them?
they can run their criminal organizations, do drugs, socialize, make money, etc. all in the safety of an environment they have near complete control over..... they are using what was supposed to keep the outside world safe from them to keep themselves safe from the outside world
it allows some to have a higher standard of living than they would otherwise as you yourself have alluded to

I'll tell you. 3 squares and a cot mentality. This might come as a shock to you ( it is for most folks) but not all prisoners want to be out of prison. Many prefer it to the Outside. Many if they do get released commit crimes for the sole purpose to get right back in - and stay in. These are called Lifers, even if they do not have a life sentence for something like murder.

It's like an exclusive club but more than that it's a family, a familiar comforting place to call Home. These guys find in the cell mates a brotherhood a family they never had on the outside. 20 or more years go by in prison and suddenly the idea of leaving that familiar place becomes frightening. The world has changed, moved on without them and they can't bear the thought of being taken from that and forced into an alien world.

Then there is the Other kind of prisoner who stays because they act as a go between between the inmates and the crime bosses on the outside. They help smuggle contraband for profit, place hits on people the boss could not get to on the outside and set up a hierarchy of mob like control. It can be big business. This is how all these things guns drugs etc. find their way into the prisons in the first place.
