Prisoners Need Support Too!
This thread has been set up to encourage the communication between prisoners and the outside world. The first page of this thread will change on a regular basis in regards to current news and information, so please refer to this page for updates.
Posts of letters or pictures received from inmates are also welcomed in this thread. It gives lonely inmates a sense of belonging and hope to be able to say things to those of us on the outside.
"So what can I do to cheer up a prisoner of war?" you ask?
Here are some ideas on what you can send to any inmate.
-Cards (no raised pictures)
-Photographs (printed on paper)
-Printouts (CC Forums, passages from books, poems/song lyrics, famous speeches, etc.)
-Canteen Money (most jails will allow money to be sent through the mail to be used for an inmates canteen)
Every institution has different rules for their inmates. Each institution in this thread will have a short description of rules as information from each is gathered.
If there are no rules posted a simple letter is always a safe choice.
Please do not include any "contraband" (i.e. string, laminated items, pornography, and violent material...)
Inmates will be listed in alphabetical order by their last name for your convenience. Current Drug War Prisoners
