    What's going on within Florida's Correctional Facilities

    I don't want my name to be mentioned or face to be seen, but I am willing to offer information regarding Florida correctional facilities.


    There are weak inmates that are being threatened to give oral sex or be killed. So, they give oral sex to the one that is threatening them, because they have no protection by the Florida Correctional Institution from the stronger inmates. If you asked that inmate, "Why don't they tell someone about the threats? They will respond as followed:

    1st you tell someone
    2nd Florida correctional facility will lock you in confinement.
    3rd they will investigate
    (Note: When they investigate, they will call the men who are threatening the weaker inmates to tell their story. The stronger inmate coheres other weaker inmates to testify for them or they are threatened in the same way.)
    4th The weaker inmate back into the general population.
    5th That weaker inmate is killed or beaten half to death.
    6th No one saw a thing, because of the threats from the stronger inmates. The weaker inmate that is just trying to do their time get beaten to death or nearly dead.

    So, the weaker inmate is damned if he tell on the stronger inmate and he is damned if he don't tell.

    Therefore, there is no protection for the weaker inmate. He would have to give oral sex to an inmate or die.

    This is a story. The two places that this has taken place is Appalachee Correctional Institution and Jefferson Correctional Institution.

    If you asked them, they would say that the weaker inmate can be in protected custody, but what they don't tell you is that some of the officers and workers are working for the stronger inmates, which puts the weaker inmate in danger.

    The warden would give you a number of reasons why their way works, but the questions should be asked, "How many of your inmates been beaten or killed in this facility in the last 4 to 5 years?"

    My son is that weaker inmate and have seen other weaker inmate get beaten to death or nearly dead after being put back into general population.

    Something needs to be done!
