    99% of the time people in jail are just trying to do their time, mind their own biz and get out. There are always a few bad apples, but it's not like the movies.

    I spent two days in jail in my youth. One in Palm Beach, the other in Atherton, CA.

    comparatively speaking, i bet those are some nice prisons.

    Spent a night in Houston PD jail a about 3-4 years ago. I was the first one bailed out out of about 200 people in there. I was bailed out right before they started processing people to go to Harris County jail. Once you get into county, you're in for at least another 24 hours and you get the orange jumpsuit. City jail you can still wear your own clothes.

    As an undergrad I worked a crappy job that got a good portion of their labor from the prisoners that had daily work release.

    They had to be back in county by a certain time each day otherwise they were in serious trouble. Their normal ride got in a minor car accident one day, so they begged me to drive them back to county.

    Not very exciting.

    I go to prison at least two or three times a month.

    Side note - I had a conversation with a guard at the local county prison recently. The prisoners were given a special treat over Christmas. An ice cream sandwich. That's right, the one bright spot in an year of incarceration was a single ice cream sandwich as donated by some local charity do-gooder group. I can't imagine my life being so empty and devoid of enjoyment as to anxiously await the one day per year I could enjoy the sweet-sweet deliciousness of an ice cream sandwich. It actually got me a little sad.

    In my previous life I was kind of a wannabe and kicked it with some dumbasses who were bigger wannabes. Landed me in real jail (as a minor) for a day when i was 17 for being associated with driving a car. That wasn't mine, or my friend's. Or anyone we knew. Interestingly during the same period I found myslef in the Drunk tank twice only because I didn't have any ID on me and they couldn't call my mommy to pick me up. Managed to get this all done before I turned 21 and have not had over one drink in a sitting since. [​IMG] me no mixy good with alkeehol. (I'm sure I'd be fine now to have a few, but I just decided I don't need it in my life and do fine w/o it [​IMG]

    I only visited someone in jail once, he was in for drugs trafficking. He was a friend of my parents and was caught in Denmark. So when I was about 8 or 9 we went to visit hem in his cell in Denmark and after that my parents took me and my brother to Legoland. Very cool stuff.

    I spent a week in county when I was 20. Since I was only in for a short time I was in the easy wing - no strip searches, cells were small rooms with four bunks apiece, etc..

    Spent it reading shitty Stephen King and Patricia Cornwell novels and playing spades with gangbangers. Also lost ~10 pounds because the food sucked.

    It was not the worst week of my life.

    If your internet personas are like how you guys act in real life 99% of you would become someone's bitch within 48 hours.

    Worked in a downtown county jail while earning my master's...big midwestern city...

    Not recommended to spend time there as an inmate under any circumstances, but people get used to it, I understand

    Ok guys, Enough with the one liners. Let's hear some stories with some meat and potatoes. Ex. I shot some guy because he touched my motorcycle. After sitting in clink for a month fighting for my fucking life I was released on bail. Eventually, I was found innocent because I was clever in hiding the gun so the prosecution couldnt produce a murder weapon.

    The trick is, kick someone's ass the first day, or become someone's bitch. Then everything will be alright.

    Exactly....either way......an ass will be involved.....either someone else's or yours!

    One night - was caught drunk driving.

    Fortunately, they did not find the joint in my pocket. I was not brazen enough to light it, though.

    Within a year-and-a-half, all three of my siblings were incarcerated, for completely unrelated crimes. My sister's crime made national news - literally (and no I won't elaborate), but my brothers' were pretty small-time. My older brother was out in less than a month.

    My younger brother spent over a year in (dealing a buttload of MDMA, but he turned state's witness), but was enrolled in a program for good prisoners. He says it was the best time of his life [​IMG] . He missed women, but he had everything paid for, was making money at a prison job, and just hung out and played basketball all day.

    I've luckily never been arrested in my life. I remarkably managed to elude the police twice in my younger days (once for vandalism, once for what I guess would've been drunk & disorderly). The vandalism bit they actually brought the K-9 out for. WTF!?
