Hello,

My bestfriend is visiting her children's dad soon. How is the visiting process as a whole? ie: processing, pictures, clothes?

TIA

Default Big Sandy

My husband just left Atlanta and was sent to Big Sandy. Does anyone know if they are currently on lockdown? What is it like there? I have read there have been multiple murders, is it a race riot or issolated incidents?

They were off lockdown for a minute yesterday. I got a phone call first thing in the morning and my guy even seemed surprised they were up so I'm not at all shocked they locked them back down again. Don't know the specifics but heard it was something bad that happened. He'd sent me a letter at the beginning of the week and thought at that time they'd be down for at least 2 weeks. That place.........I got no words, for real.

Yep. He was really upbeat and happy to be up cuz no one expected it. We were supposed to talk again a bit later but that didn't happen, so they must have locked them back down again fairly early. I'm sure at that point he was like WTF!? As we all are.

I'm so sorry to hear that your guy is having health issues. I hope he was able to get the medical attention he needs and that everything turns out ok.

No markers. I send letters twice a week to my fiancé and pictures through Pigeonly which prints packages and sends from a website to the prison.
