Have you ever been to jail or prison? How was it?

I spent half a day in jail because of a DUI.  It wasn't so bad.  Nobody bothered me.  It was almost all 20 somethings in there.  I was no threat or competition to them.

      Nope.  How old were you when that happened?

    Only as a visitor, and I still found it a bit frightening.

    Only a couple hours in the police lockup, then released with a warning. I chained myself to a bulldozer.

    You'd have been better off chaining yourself to a Caterpiller...  Like me,Sleeping large male Cattle can get quite aggressive if chain yourself to them.....:(

    Oh yes, I remember that, Slartibartfast (if I switch the b and f and move the l so it follows the b, would that offend you?)   
    Good for you!  I've made some personal sacrifices for the greater good also.

    When I was about 9, the local YMCA sponsored a tour of the local jail.  My grandfather was in law enforcement and I was curious about jails.

    I tend to be a little claustrophobic due to some experiences I had when I was about 4 or 5.  The tour scared the bejesus out of me.

    When I was in my 30's, the jail and the city offices were in the same building.  I hit the wrong floor button and the elevator took me straight to the jail.

    It seemed like the elevators took forever to close and take me down a floor to where I had intended to go.

    yes. in 2016, i was homeless and i made a fire in a abandoned building. People saw smoke and called the police... when police caught me that night, they brought me to the police headquarters, and i stayed there an entire night until tomorrow... They eventually created a police file under my name... took a mugshot and took my fingerprints. 

    it sucked cuz i was jailed the whole night and it was loooong .

    I will say this.  ONCE.  I will never go to jail.  NEVER.

      We know, we know: they'll never take you alive, we've heard it all before.

    Not as a prisoner.  I have been to the jail to talk to clients as an attorney or investigator/data collector,  and in the earlier years as a court appointed advocate in family court.

    Criminal law is not really my bag.  This post was edited by Thriftymaid at May 3, 2019 5:29 AM MDT

    Do you expect to go to jail in the future?  When will that be?  Will you tell us about it afterward?
