Prison Pete

Thursday, May 10, 2007
One interesting item. I was called down to the Sergeant's office last night. This was announced to the entire dorm. "Pete, report to the Sergeant's office. ILC Business." Usually there are only two reasons one goes to the sergeant's office. One because you are getting a hearing for a violation of the rules or you are going to rat out another inmate.

Since everyone knows when you get a ticket, and I certainly did not get one, that left it looking like I was being asked to rat. That is what indeed was being asked, but at least they used the ILC as a cover.

When I arrived at the Sergeant's office I talk with the sergeant that is responsible for the ILC but in this case was working on the arson investigation. He told me he knew I knew how the correction game was played but wanted to seek my input to be sure they had all the guilty parties and no innocent victims were being caught up in the wide net they had cast.

As a self protection mechanism, I purposely do not get involved in any of the dorm gossip, so I know next to nothing about who is doing what. I only know on at least two occasions I was on the receiving end of a thumping, but I did not know at either time who did it. It was only after two of the inmates got packed up that two different inmates told me that one of the individuals shipped out was the one who recently thumped me.

After confirming that one piece of information, the sergeant did mention that he thought I should stay on the ILC for another six month term and that he thought I would make a good chairman. The irony of this compliment was that when I first "volunteered" to be on the committee, this same sergeant tried to have me excluded. But having spent the last six months dealing with a really obnoxious chairman, all of a sudden I look good. Ha.

While I will still need to first be voted on by my dorm and then convince the other ten to fourteen inmates to let me be the chairman, it is by no means a shoe-in. But I will probably give it a try.

So that is my life for now. I will pen another opus to you upon my return for this taxpayer financed nose job.

[Editor] I have no idea what "ILC" stands for and Pete did not elaborate. Does anyone know?
