I meant to post earlier ladies, sorry. My guy confirmed they are off lockdown and apparently the lock down was triggered by a fight, aparantly a gang fight. Is itjust me, or is this facility run like a Max? Feels like every other day/week these guys are on lockdown. My man was just let out of the SHU last week for an incident where a cell phone was found in his unit, unbeknownst to him. Yet, with no proof, several guys were thrown in the SHU for weeks while an investigation took place. Results, no link to him and luckily no changes to his release date. I wonder what can be done under such circumstances, I am sick of this prison life! Sometimes I feel like I can't take it anymore....ugh, woosahhhhh. We're almost at the finish line.

I'm glad you are nearing the end of his sentence. The only way to get past either the bop, or US probation is to complete the entire sentence. It is similar to having a large weight removed from your lives.

Unhappy

Just found out our son is being transferred to Berlin FCI. Anyone know if they have a leather working shop, or any info about this location? He is currently at Hazelton in WV, this transfer is going to limit his visits by virtue of travel time! Sad, is an understatement!

Hi ... There is next to nothing at FCI Berlin. They are understaffed. Next to no programs up there... definitely not leather craft.

The queens majesty goes from NY to Berlin FCI. You can look them up online. You have to book way in advance because it fills up fast and the visitation room is packed on those days.

I don't know a ton in terms of the safety but my boyfriend is there and seems to know a lot of the guys in the visiting room and they're always super nice. I'm not seeing the everyday life though so I can't speak to that. There seems to be more rules at Berlin compared to other prison visits but I can only speak of what I've been told because Berlin is the first prison I've visited. It's a very nice facility.

It sucks that FCI Berlin does not no longer allow you to send cards. Well they do but they photo copy them and send you your card back. I think it takes away from the true feeling of getting a card. Makes me wanna not send any cards, and I also feel like Im wasting my money.

that's where my hubby is at

My husband is in Berlin as well. From what he says it's not that bad in their. As long as your son minds his business he'll he fine.

Oh and the calls are only 15 minutes at a time, and the only get 300 minutes month. They go pretty quick. My husband and I talk for 5 min a call or at least try, and he'll call twice a day. When we do it that way the minutes last. It helps a lot that they have emails where you can email back and forth too so that helps with saving minutes.

My visit was ok. Some of the things they do i dnt 7nderstand but ok. U habe to walk up to a square to give a hug then you have to sit and they come youband sit. But staff didnt bither saw a couple of staff that seem cool. They do tht to try to stopbdrugs. If thats not stopping it it should let them see its not always the visitors. We spent the weekend in a hotel. Sad because we so far away that he cant have that many visits
