    Well they don’t realy do meds in UK prisons .

    They have the liquid cosh for prisoners that get violent lygartill it bacicly zombies one up an leaves them drooling.

    This isn’t given at a med line its given via 4 screws holding you down whilst the alchcholic of an excuse for a doctor whom thinks the hypocratic oath means the hypocrite oath injects it anywhere he can.

    For your normal aches an pains theres a placebo given out laughingly reffered to as codine.

    Got a cold or flu ..codine

    twisted shoulder codine

    severed leg codine.

    We do have sadistic screws though most of the officers are indifferent there for the pay .

    A few are genuine an kind an intrested in prisoners welfare both inside and on the out

    The sadists are the minority but there exuberance more than makes up for lack of numbers.

    There the ones when starting a shift at 4 am always find something hilarious to laugh at the top of ther lungs capacity.Make sure all the cons can hear an awake them.

    When they enter the wings whilst others head of to check
    the daily roster.They mount the stairs to the landings as if goose stepping

    They do a pointless head count opening an slamming the metal veiveing portals as loud as possible.Also love to take out there battons an drag them along the railings like a little kid with a stick to make as much racket as possible.

    They also love to censor the out going an incomeing mail so they can make snide remarks about relationships.An if a con gets a dear john its like Christmas to them.

    Thing is its not the job that turns them thus .Ive seen screws just out of traing be as inhumane as the long termers.

    The job of power an authourity draws a certain type an of course theres the famous experiment done in the 70 with students takeing the roles of cons an screws .

    An how quickly they became indocricated into abuse.

    Very good writing Crane, have you considered writing a book? I don’t know if I missed a section, but what is the outcome? Please direct me to the right place if I missed it.

    Crane, Fred thought the Kingsmen Louie Louie that I posted was so amazing wtih all the white guys on their little white pads on stage, with a backdrop sillouettes of dancing girls. (I think he was funnin’ 😉

    So, how about this one, Jack Ely is singing in a much more natural setting, no dancing girls, unless that’s the name of his pretty horse! The description says this tune prompted an FBI investigation of the Kingsmen over the supposedly obscene lyrics, lol.

    The little bird, Crane, is a powerful representation of the treatment of human beings at the design and will of others.

    Reading this morning’s news articles, a Canadian freelance journalist along with an Australian photographer, captured by criminals posing as freedom fighters in Somalia in August 2008, was freed, and the media agreed to not report this story until the two were safely out of Somalia.

    The bird represents so many things, a chck displaced from its nest is pure innocence and pure helplessness in need of compassion and care. Those, along with any hope for life, for understanding, for compassion, for freedom, was stomped with the coldness of a psychopath’s glee at the pain and condition of others.

    The bird is powerful in your story, and shows your humanity and compassion, it’s all the more powerful in understanding your life within those walls, and a tiny glimmer of hope from a helpless living being. That bully took it as his object of power, as only a coward can do and illustrates to the world, his treatment of others.

    Alberta woman held hostage in Somalia
    by The Canadian Press – Story: 96728
    Aug 18, 2013 / 7:11 am

    After about a year of being starved, beaten and sexually brutalized, Amanda Lindhout decided it was time to kill herself.

    The Alberta woman, taken hostage in Somalia in August 2008, says she reached her breaking point after spending three days trussed up like an animal, her hands and feet pulled so tightly behind her back that she could barely breathe.

    When her captors did untie her, they told her it was only a reprieve. They promised to use the same torture technique on her again each day until they got their ransom money.

    Left alone, Lindhout resolved that she was better off dead. She would take a rusty razor to her wrists.

    But as she held the blade in her hand, a small, brown bird flew into the doorway of the room where she was being held. It hopped on the dirty floor, looked at her and flew away. It was the first bird she’d seen since shortly after she was taken.

    “I’d always believed in signs … and now, when it most mattered, I’d had one,” she writes. “I would live and go home. It didn’t matter what came next or what I had to endure.

    What heartache! So well written. I’m so glad you got out of there more or less intact. That much as he needed killin’ you didn’t do it.

    I love how you had to make do with whatever was available to create your artwork.
