Very well said the hardest thing is the not knowing and every small part of information we can receive is helpful. We are not only their support but each others as well. I am very thankful to all. After I told my brother about all this he says a minimum of a 1 month to 2 months lockdown until they move all of the gang/groups out.

Youíre welcome.K is going to try and find out.
They go up in shifts ( every other day) ...he will go up again tomorrow.
We kinda get stuff piece by piece and I know itís frustrating...this whole prison thing is frustrating. All of us are fighting a battle that most people donít understand..Thank God we have each other. ❤️

And we have to remember we have a new warden, who is supposedly very tough. What K heard was , heís not only tough on inmate rules, heís tough on the guards too.
A guy who is in his camp came from Ashland ( one of Kís Stops for years, but not this warden) well, apparently a Lt. was walking and this warden told him to pick up something and the Lt. Said,ĒIíll get someone to pick it up..Iím notď. ..WELLLLLL, this warden had him take his shirt off and go pick up trash on the ENTIRE YARD!!!! LOL.
Sooooo, he isnít playing!!!!

Yeah the new mail policy went in efrect a little over a month ago. All mail is being photocopied. Must be front of page only and only written in black ink. Inmate is given photocopy of envelope and pages. Can have a total of 10 items--paper or pictures. All pics are photocopied as well. A few pages back in this thread is a photo of the policy someone posed if you need further info.

Hello, I will post the update regarding the policy change as I have the information. I don't think colored ink matters since it's copied in black and policy doesn't say.
Mail is super behind since I just now got a letter I sent 12/5 that was written on the back so it took over a month and a half to get it back. Praying everyone hears from their man/loved one ASAP

Yeah I wouldn't think that colored ink would matter anymore but it was a policy that was in place prior to this change so we're assuming it wasn't lifted. They did say that any piece they think is laced will be sent to a lab and since that's supposedly the reason behind the colored ink ban I'm not trying to find out the hard way. Haha.

Hi all..... nothing new is being said or the name of the injured...except that they heard it was one of the heads of the Mexican Mafia.
I wouldn’t mess around with the mail...I’d use black ink and white paper...it copies better anyway.....
That way you know it will get through...UGH

The camp has no TV for a week...another cell phone found, they are saying it’s number 27 in a month. K thinks that’s BS cause they’re is only 85 guys at camp. He said , “chit , you mean to tell me 1/3 of these knuckleheads had phones.” I don’t believe it.....

Now, with no TV there will be a lot of talk, I’ll keep you posted.. ❤️

Crazy about the phones and the COs probably have "no idea" how the phones are getting in.

With the First Step Act being implemented, how do you know when they are being released. Are they released to a halfway house?

For answers, you can check the inmate locator to confirm that the first step act release date has been changed to the correct one, 54 days of good time for each 12 months of his initial sentence instead of 47 days/year. That is the day when he will be released, from bop custody to supervised release (probation),
https://www.bop.gov/inmateloc/

Once that is correct. he can find out the bop's plan for sending him to a half way house (if any) from his unit team case manager. The date the bop initially requests for HWH is not the actual date he will go there until the HWH replies that they have a bed available on that date, otherwise the HWH will notify them when he can arrive. The unit team will then tell him the actual HWH arrival date.

He will still be a bop prisoner at the HWH, just living there instead of in a prison. If he is sent to home confinement from the HWH, he will also still be "in bop custody" there.

Hello all,
Received a letter from my husband. He said he asked a counselor walking in his unit how long the lockdown will be and he said earliest coming off LD will be March :/ I’m praying that’s not so. He said mail is running on time however the mailroom is mixing up people’s letters and passing them out wrong. I don’t know it it’ll help putting on the envelope the cell number and unit to avoid that issue. Hope this helps.

Wow, I pray that March isn't true. My loved one told me recently that the warden was working on trying to lift the lockdown as early as next week. So, I'm going to put my thoughts and energy into that goal. Also, I've been sending and receiving mail with no problem and in a timely manner. But I've also always put the unit letter on the envelope. I hope that helps!

That facility is horrible. My husband said it's been freezing as well. He mentioned the AC being on blast and it being freezing in the unit. Praying the LD is lifted asap!

Well, yesterday there was a HORRIBLE thing that happened to one of the camp guys up there doing food by two of the Food Administrators....
It was like the 1950’s .... taking him in an office, stripping him, tying him to a chair and threatening to beat him and calling him BOY because he said he wasn’t washing walls he was there to deliver the food cart.... Well, guess who walks in???? THE WARDEN!!!!!!! Let me just say, heads must have rolled....today, guards were NOT just sitting in the TV lounge room, and heads were down when the guys went up and no one was saying chit!!!!!!!!! Sounds like Administration and others are in trouble now........let’s see what the warden does now....Racism is alive and well at USP LEE!!!! It makes me sick that people have to treat other humans this way, Karma always has its way of finding you....SMH

Wow!!! That's ridiculous! I hate that happened to him but I'm so glad it happened when the warden could walk in and see it happening, not just hear about it and get nothing but denials. I'm liking this warden already. Nothing surprises me about this happening in Virginia although granted it could happen anywhere. Clean house, warden, clean motherduckin house!
