Yes they do I agree unfortunately it happens every where all over in every facility it's sad they have to fight them or maybe try to talk to someone even if they lose they will earn respect by doing that there testing them to see what they will do and once you start doing and giving things it's not gonna stop I'm in no way condoning fighting

my boyfriend doesn't have issues with gang members but he has seen many get their commissary stolen and taken as a "rent". he stays out of everything and minds his business because hes short time and we don't want him losing gain time. he doesn't like seeing it happen but he doesn't want to get involved. if you guys are dealing with this im so sorry.

Prison Code: Hear nothing, see nothing, say nothing.

...and I do hate to say it, but 51littlemama, he's got to stand up for himself. If an inmate lets another inmate take his commissary, or anything else for that matter, it just gets worse. Its a scary thought, I understand that, but things really could get a whole lot worse. I hate this for both you & your son

Prison is a hardcore version of high school, either you stick up and fight for your self or you will be bullied. It sucks but he has to either stand up for himself or this will continue.

I wish I had some great advice on how to make it stop, but unforunately I don’t. People like to simply things by telling new inmates to just lay low and keep to themselves, but that doesn’t always work depending on the unit and the gang presence there.

My husband rode solo on his last bid, and keeping out of trouble just wasn’t an option. There were plenty of times when he wanted to walk away and let things go to stay out of trouble but he just couldn’t or the crap would continue. I remember one time a guy stole his radio out of his cell. He was literally praying as he walked to the guys room that he wouldn’t find it there so he wouldn’t have to fight - but Lo and behold, the radio was there and he’s been around the block enough time to know he had to make an example out of the guy or he would be extorted and stolen from the entire bid. As he puts it “you’re either the hunter or the prey.”

Your LO is going to have to keep standing up for himself. He can’t stop. He’s going to have to become someone he may not already be to survive. He might have to really hurt someone.

The tiny bright spot is that if he does hurt someone, odds are a gang member isn’t going to turn around and report him. That goes against the code. If you get beat up, you take it and keep your mouth shut.

I know it’s a no-win situation, and it’s so hard to be stuck on the outside watching. Just remember that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. This won’t last forever. He just has to do what needs to be done until the gangs move on to someone else because he’s proven himself or he’s released.
