My Sweetie only has a minor parole violation to deal with and he's saying the same thing -- they only get to come out of their cells for an hour or so after each meal. It's gonna save money on the phone bill since I work about 80 - 85 hrs a week, but at the same time that really can't make up for the crap he's going through. Shoot, they probably won't even let him get a job in there because they don't want to waste the time training him for anything when they know that (at most) he's only got another three months to go. Why bother, right?
why are they on lockdown all the time? They don't get rec? They don't get wing time? Even at PCC they had rec and wing time. Has there been a lot of fights or something? This is the first that I've heard the place is that bad. MOst of the other stories I've heard have been pretty good. I was going to try and get him moved there cause it's closer, but I won't if it's that bad! He's better off at SECC

Jamal hasnt told me exactley why, he just said a bunch of crap is going down all the time and they hardley ever get out! He actually looks forward to any type of meal time...which he used to hate! At JCCC he got time outside and he wasnt exactley happy, I dont think any of them are, but he HATES ERDCC!!!!!!
My hubby to be is at ERDCC and he hates it! He has been to every prison in mo beside potosi and one other one and he said that the hole camp is ran so stupid he dose not under stand it they only get to go out side every 3 days and 3 recks a day 45 mins at a time and most of the time the co's make them lock down way befor it's time too!! I understand that it is a max leave camp but come on really the shit that go's on there is so fucked up!! And my man should not even be at such a high leave camp but he has a case pending and they keep pushing the court date back and puting it off and puting it off and untell this case is over he has to stay at that HELLHOLE!!!!!! I treat my dogs better than they treat aree loved ones l!!!!!!!
my fiancee is at erdcc and ive already been to one visit with him (hes still in diagnostics) but i was wondering if u have to wear tennis shoes like i did last time or if u can wear flip flops or opened toed shoes[/b]
you CAN wear flip flops. As far as time out of the cells, on the perm side they get out 45 min, 3 times a day, and every other or every 3rd day one of those times is an hour and a half rec time. i know that outside rec has been closed a lot lately due to the extreme heat. If they make it to honor wing, they are out of the cells MOST all the time. My husband is in honor wing and he says.... no matter what it is like, it is STILL prison. The best thing we can do for our loved ones is be an ear for them to vent to, and give them the emotional support they truely need.
Best of luck to ALL OF US!
The last update was about a year ago. Any new info on erdcc, as far as how long until they can call from when they just arrive. And can we still mail books while in diagnostics? I can't believe I'm here again. Uuuugggg ( in diagnostics)
