Luke has been there before...he said Lansing is the worst facility. I want him to move there to be close to me, but he says it's all about beat-downs and stabbings and that it's really hard to stay out of trouble there.

oic.. yea the good things ive heard is from minimum.. i just wasnt sure if it actually is different for minimums in lansing.. or if minimum is just as bad as medium n up..
i kno that lansing would be closer but id rather him be in a better enviroment..
i wish i knew what the difference would be if i was to ask him to get moved lol

Hated it at Lansing, there is lots going on there and lots of reasons to get into trouble. Also the visits are just way crowded...But that is in medium. My kids dad was in lansing like about 9 years ago and it was minimum and it was really nice, if it could be called that.

I liked larned, matt did to. It is sort of a laid back camp. The visits were nice and all that. Yeah I wish he could go back to larned, he did not get in as much trouble there. He has been to lansing, ellsworth, hutch, eldorado, and larned this time around and yeah I think and so does he that larned was the best, but they don't offer alot of programs and that is why he got transferred.

well.. me i think larned is pretty good.. even with some guards that have powertrips.. and i only been to 1 visit so far, prob will finnally get to go on sat again.. but i agree the visits are pretty nice there.. which is kinda another reason id rather my hubby just stay at larned even if it means less visit. but as far as all that ive heard its best at larned, and yea seems like there isnt too much trouble to get into there, which is good, sux bout the programs but luckly the hubby started his ged classes recently. im gonna just tell the hubby that ill try to come n visit as much as possible bc i think larned is good for him rt now.

Have you thought about maybe car pooling with someone, ellsworth is only about 1 hour or so from larned, if you couldn't find someone that goes to larned to car pool with maybe you could find someone from ellsworth. Just a thought

thanks for the post,
see i guess my hubbys been getting alot of diff things from other inmates.. some saying its great and wish they could b there instead and some saying its the worst lol.. but as far as i see it.. since hes good where hes at why risk it ya kno.. ill juss deal with having to travel further for now rather than him losing good time and what not..
i think that alot of the write ups and DRs r just because some guards have power trips and also look down at the inmates or something.. inmates can get written up for just the littlest thing.. there supposed to be helping them be a better person but how is treating them like a child doing that? lol.. i mean getting a DR sometimes for juss having an attitude? lol comeon..
idk mabe its just me and mabe they got some reason for those kinda things but thas kinda what i think

I agree with you on the guards have power trips . My man just lost 17 days for work performance ! Yeah really sucked . I understand that he is a prisoner but he's not a dog and they want to work them like they are ! And Brian has a big mouth . And has to say somthing . Gotta love him lol . But then because he does things like that he has already lost months and we end up getting into a fight and whatever .So yeah if your man is happy where he is and things are going well Id say stay ! . I know just how you feel about being so far away though because I am about 7 hours from Lansing . We tried to get him moved to Winfiled because that is closer but it never happen . I am just so ready for all this bs to be over .But arent we all lol .. I do hope that things work out for you though !
