    Being in pine grove as an inmate was hell to begin with. From the jump guards felt the need to ACT like they were tuff. For no reason at all. Then you have the counselors who constantly lie. Do very little to get things done. Commissary is way over priced. And the violence in that place was off the chain. Every day some kid got his face cut by another inmate, gang related 99% off time. Guards have no clue of how deep and how bad the gans problem is up there. And if you speak on it, your called a rat, then your in trouble. Talk some truth to a guard, and he dont like it, he’ll set you up. The worst is these guard set inmates up with false misconduct reports. Yes they get away with it. White kids get rapped. Sadly its kept quit. Its crazy up there. I do however give credit to the security office, they do try to keep order and follow up on things. What they need to do is hire me. I’ll fire everyone up there, clean house, and restore proper order. Prison is in a level of its own. Dont break the law and you’ll avoid all this shit.
