All TDCJ prisoners go through shakedowns. usually they conduct a major shakedown of an entire unit at least twice a year, more often than that if there's a riot, stabbing or some other major incident. Since your son has a trusty job in county, he might just prefer it to TDCJ. I can't think that TDCJ could be any worse than Harris County Jail. In fact, with what I've heard about Harris County, TDCJ would be the better of the two in most instances. That's just my opinion.
