“M.C.C. Recreation” – Bob Hopeful – M.C.C.

      1. M.C.C. never ceases to amaze me, I found out that this afternoon they closed the rec yard for the men in minimum custody. The source stated that they couldn’t go outside because there was no staff to watch the yard. What the Fuck? Those inmates are minimum custody because they have proven them selves worth of it. The other minimum custody facilities in Maine (Charleston and Bolduc.) Don’t Have Fences! With that said why should the minimum custody inmates at MCC be treated differently? It’s down right degrading to these inmates to be treated in such a fashion, compared to their fellow minimum inmates at other facilities. Mr. Commissioner and Mr. Superintendent just because were a couple incidents in the rec yard in 15 years and one being recently (which would have been avoided if the officer on duty would have done their job properly.) Regardless, of the fact minimum inmates should be allowed to roam the rec yard with out supervision. My opinion Mr. Commissioner is do not allow classification to under classify individual with violent tendencies just to move them out of the pods in a timely manner. (Something I’ve heard you have allowed.

 

Sincerely,

Mr. Bob Hopeful

“Accreditation” – Bob Wire – M.C.C.

Somethings in life Stymy me, other things just baffle me, yet there are still other things that befuddle and perplex me beyond my means. One such item that has me befuddled, perplexed and more is: Why in God’s green earth is Maine Correctional Center straining for accreditation and what will that accreditation mean to the quality of life for the inmates? I mean is not like the inmates get a choice as to where they will serve their time; they can’t say “don’t send me to MCC” it’s not accredited! So will accreditation bring better treatment for the inmates? Will it provide better medical care? Will it provide even moderately adequate medical care? Better Food? Will accreditation provide foul weather gear/clothing? Will it weed out the C.O.’s who’s soul mission at MCC is to fuck with the inmates? Not because the inmates have done things wrong but solely for the CO’s entertainment? Will it keep commissary open? Will it put quality books in the library? Will the school department get more and better? Will inmates get better quality foods? Will they get foods C.O.’s and staffers get? If you haven’t figured it out yet. The answer to every question above is no… What accreditation will do is paint hand rails and remove trash and wash floors that’s it…
