@Glen Bellefonte uhm. Uncle Mikey got out after doing 15. First thing he does is run around lifting his shirt saying, "blood on my knife or sh** on my d**k" lifting his shirt he says, "ain't been stuck once." People are different.

@Dster Its a real rare time when quards get attacked. Unless the inmate is mentally off. The punishment is off the charts. Disciplinary action from the prison as in write ups, is not the problem. Guards, in general, are on a power trip and if you hit one ,the guards will beat the living hell out of the inmate, sometimes every chance they get. Usually, a guard will get attacked when they disrespect inmates. Guards that treat convicts as human beings won't get attacked. It's a rare as hens teeth for one to be killed. I spent 14nyrs as a guest of the NC prison system.

You know Larry, it's amazing. I'm 42 years old now and did one short term back in my early 20's. I was just shy of 25 when I paroled, so it's been 17 years. All 10 of these bullet points are dead on. I'll never forget that 2 years and change I spent in the joint. And if I ever had to go back, this shit would all be second nature to me. And this was California State Prison, so it was especially political. But God bless you for putting this out there to any guys that might be rolling up on a yard soon for the first time. Because most people don't know shit about prison politics and go in blind. I sure did. Thankfully, when I got to reception, I had a good cellie that filled me in on all the do's and don'ts. They didn't get greener than me and I could have walked right into wreck and not even known why. Take care brother.

Two unrelated observations: 1) No prison inmate should have to worry about any of this. There should be sufficient guard and surveillance coverage so that no prisoner ever has to worry for their safety at any time. These people are serving time, they're still human. 2) I can tell that Larry has used his experiences to build himself a better life, telling his experiences, and just becoming an all around entertainer and personality. Kudos for finding life after.

I would love to tell my story. I’m Asian an went to prison. How I survived all the gangs. Heart checks. Non affiliated. An drawing saved my life. That look. Being small. I looked at everyone. Didn’t stare. The hard one that tried to stare me down. I would knod. No smile. But knodded. I my cell was a shot caller on the unit for tango blast. It’s a great story. Respect, be clean, don’t gossip, pay your debts, make sure people pay you. I left tdc with 10k. I set up my account and people paid for my art work. I drew ever tattoo. Drawing saved my life bro.

I love how he started the video . I've only been inside a couple times ( small timer ) it was more or less a jail that you'd be in while awaiting trial or if you'd been sentenced for less than 30 days but my 1st time as an 18 year old my cellie was up for 2nd degree ( he admitted he did it ) and 2nd I was on range with another up for 2nd ( again admitted he did it ) they were good guys legit , everybody makes mistakes , 1 big mistake that you regret can cost you a lot but it doesn't make you non-human

After doing 9 years, I was let out, unexpectedly, due to some friends in high places. I had been told that all parole chances were over and I would be in for another 8-10yrs. Anyway, I was in close custody( gun towers) and one day they just told me to pack my shit, but wouldn't say why. I was put in a car with two goons who wouldn't talk and drove 150 miles to an honor grade camp. Then I figured it out. I was given $50, pair of keds,white pants(one size to small) and tshirt. A parole officer picked me up and dropped me off at my parents house. I had my parents and luckily, money. What about all the people who get out and all they have is 50 bucks and the clothes on their backs. Is there any surprise that people go back to prison on a regular basis? When I was arrested, bank robbery, the officer putting the handcuffs was a rookie and trying to juggle a gun and handcuffs. BANG! I got shot in the left cheek of my ass. Bullet went in ,hit thigh bone and shattered into million pieces. I got a good lawyer and nice settlement to draw from when I got out, but I feel for those who dont have what I did. Keep up the great job. Now I'm 67 yrs old, five grandkids, two daughters and a wonderful wife. I've had a hell of a life, lucky to be alive,but even luckier to be here to write this.

I spent 14 yrs in. I did time in the olden days, 73-81 and from 85-94. I was one of the founding members of the N.C.Prison Labor Union. I was on the board of directors, we published a news letter to all the inmates in NC and we fought the system, legally until they finally shut us down by ruling we were a secret organization inside the prisons. We weren't, but after years of legal hassles ,it went kuput! We had the Teamsters working with us. Some of your tips are spot on. The prison system has problems that are deep and no matter what, have no easy solutions. I was first in prison back when the central prison in NC was a rock building, exactly like the one shown in the movie with Eastwood at Alcatraz. Seems the same guys built a lot of prisons. Now ,they are building soulless building with a central tower, where they can watch people 24-7. The prison system might not even need changing, its the legal system that needs it. We are locking way to many people up for crimes that should have an alternative to prison. I got out in 94 and have never been in the back of a police car since. See next comment for the zinger!

I gotta say, you seem to know what you are talking about. I spent 14yrs as a guest of the NC prison system in two stretches 7 once in what I call the good old days and 8 in the modern ,eyes on you 24-7, days. Old days were better. You could rely on a "convict" to act like one and follow the hidden rules. Now, the younger generations are ruining the system. A legendary warden of central prison once said in the newspaper, that," if you tried two convicts on top of two phone poles,gave one a match and the other a cigarette, when you came back in an hour,both would be smoking.!". See my next comment. I might be able to help you.

We got one Rule in Germany. Never take food from a guy who's guilty for sexual crime. They sometimes work in the kitchen and bring the food to locked cells. If someone is take that food and eat it it's gonna be a very bad week for him.

Why? I don't get it, by sex crimes you mean like pedophiles? Like you wouldn't wanna be seen even being served food by one? Does no one eat on the days they work the kitchen?

And interestingly enough cleanliness is big that might be surprising to some people but personal hygiene is huge if you smell bad and you're not doing anything about that expect problems. If you make your cell a mess and someone else lives in it with you that can be a problem too and never bite off more than you can chew and start a fight but you can't finish and probably the biggest rule of all that I know of is pay your debts if you have any if you are not sure if you can pay then don't play probably the number one reason other than disrespect although it goes hand in hand with that is debts when it comes to violence in prison. One perhaps strange factor is that a lot of prison violence is perpetrated by people who don't really want to hurt you they do it because you did something that by prison code they are expected to react and if they don't they could be punked out for the rest of their bid

Pay attention don't stare, table manners matter don't disturb sleep or be loud. If called out you must fight if called a bitch c word or other similarly disrespectful word then be ready to fight and don't let anyone talk to you like that. Don't ever feel like a minor slight against another is ever minor it's not ever minor. don't ever allow anyone to disrespect you especially in front of people period people will try to say things subtly when you're new to try you and sometimes you won't even realize what it is that they're saying. You might think they're joking 9 out of 10 times they're not joking they are looking for someone to punk out for commissary.. now also don't start things yourself unless necessary. Avoid conflict but not to the point of looking like a wuss. If conflict finds you you have no choice you must fight if someone disrespects you you must fight. and if you disrespect someone be ready to fight because they are going to fight you but if you're not about that life you can count her a lot of this by simply being respectful don't kiss people's asses because that will only make you look weak but if you just want to do your time and not catch a new charge then don't be rude don't push people to the point of wanting to fight you get a few friends that are just pretty chill and don't brag because trust me if you go in there talking about what a great fighter you are thinking that people aren't going to pick a fight with you you are sorely mistaken. They will tell you to put your money where your mouth is and your mouth may have no teeth the next day . It's a lot like high school except when it comes to respect there are deadly consequences and there are always bullies but just be tough enough to defend yourself don't ever back down but don't cause problems be polite don't kiss ass though. And don't be a drama queen don't gossip mind your own business don't rat and if you are some kind of informant or sex offender you're pretty much screwed anyway so yeah anyway it's pretty simple just remember that rather than being verbally corrected for chewing with your mouth open you may very well get punched.
