  8. David Berquist on February 10, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    I think money that a inmate gets should go to restitution and fines

  9. douglas macomber on February 10, 2022 at 7:27 pm

  14. Mitchell Riddle on February 10, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    Cons deserve no rights until they exit Prison. Your there for a reason, to learn what you’ve done wrong, not for a vacation.
    Constitutional rights are for citizens not criminals, criminals gave those rights up when they committed the crimes they committed!

  15. Mike Slagley on February 10, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    This guy is clueless. They’re prisoners, but they still have basic rights. You can’t deny them medical care or food. Letting them lift weights and play basketball is saving the state money in healthcare costs from having a bunch of sedentary guys suffering from illnesses caused by such.

  16. Carlitos07 on February 10, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    The best buildings for prisoners. Gtfotg

  17. claudermiller on February 10, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    They’re in prison. Why do you try to make it look like they’re on a Norwegian Cruise? Stories like this are horrible. The goal isn’t who can treat inmates worst. What’s wrong with you people?

  18. Jason Crawford (Justice) on February 10, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    Ok, this video is complete horseshit!!💯 Get ready because I’m going to rant about this bullshit. I have been free for the last year and a half from doing over 14 yrs in prison all over Texas. Want the truth? Here it is:
    At the beginning of this video, they said that this is McConnell unit. McConnell unit is built like this, but it’s nowhere near this f****** clean. It is not spacious. You get two sheets, I busted flat mattress that is 3 in thick, and you get one wool blanket, half the time you do not get hot meals. Not on McConnell unit. This unit will stay locked down at least half the year. That means inmates will stay in their cell and be fed sacked meals which are called Johnny’s three times a day. Your breakfast Johnny is two pancakes with peanut butter and jelly between and a boiled egg. Lunch is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and a bologna sandwich. Supper maybe two corn dogs. If you are served a hot meal, it’s a safe bet that the food was taken out and cooked two days prior to the meal. As far as schooling goes, you have to be minimum custody and meet standard requirements in order to go get your GED or any further School education. It is not given to every inmate as these people state. The library is used for inmates that are enrolled in school. This is a small percentage compared to the unit’s population percentage. They offered no medical assistance if you are not bleeding out broken bones or dying. Very literally. People that have severe mental health problems, are locked away in administrative segregation in a 5×9 cell I’m 15 minutes to shower every 72 hours. They are giving no recreation no mentally evaluation and will not be properly medicated or properly treated. And if these people do get out, because they could not get help inside of prison, society will reject them in every way. When they are a product of our own making.

  19. Boog Dennard on February 10, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    The guy that said you can’t just give them bread and water let’s put him in a 6×8 cell and give him bread and water and let’s see how he feels after a week

  20. Jenn Fox on February 10, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    Man them news guys are idiots first of all these men live there so how you gonna compare it to school… they are trying to give these men a way to reform so they don’t leave hardened criminals that get out and reoffend… this news anchor is a jackass… Also talk about the slave labor the state benefits off

  21. Fernando Facundo on February 10, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    Fuck Connally unit!!

  25. Gabrielle D on February 10, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    Not sure what is true or not back that time but today tdcj is having more dorms than 2 ppl "room". And they still work and get 3 meals a day + some recreation time but not hours like this video says. For medical there is but it takes often more than 48h to see someone and it usually is a nurse not a Dr… Then have to deal with inmates jalousy, anger and depression…

    All those things just make life harder for sure. But again we do not go in prison due to mistake but due to bad choice. And on the other hand, no one gets better hearted with angry guards, no food or mean ppl arround.

    Only with showing love and be strict and get them safe that MAYBE they will light up and change. Most will go back in sadly

  26. Robert Young on February 10, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    The news never changes always bull shiting the public

  27. Jersey200923 on February 10, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    I think that they forget that there punishing humans Texas has the worst system ever. In the summer they give you water like it suppose to keep you cool when temperatures reach over 100 degrees criminal or not there still humans Then you got the ones that say oh what if the criminal did something to your family what if that criminal was you some situations are just inhumane Texas is all about a dollar an that’s all they care about

  28. Casmiro Granado on February 10, 2022 at 7:53 pm

  39. Mike Larson on February 10, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    This is so stupid.. if only this reporter could experience this in his reality. His perception would change

  40. big c on February 10, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    This shit is stupid nice prisons got roaches rats it’s about 115 in the summer about 60 in the winter you ain’t going to rec every day. Texas prison is self supported they got beef chicken and hog farms images drive commissary. If you wanna see fraud George Bush built all these prisons now he’s got a company named bar b co that sells commissary to inmates

  41. Dwayne Clemons on February 10, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    I’ve served 5 years in TDC-ID, from 1993 to 1998, for possession of narcotics. And my experience, first hand and what I’d witnessed, was the complete opposite of what’s depicted in this segment. I know for a fact that the opinions of the inmates who were interviewed does not represent the inmates altogether. And I know too well that the administration has their picks, when it comes to inmate representation. After all, who in their right mind would enjoy being in prison because they and buy some damn Blue Bell ice cream off the commissary and play piano? What they don’t tell you is how the administration of TDCJ-ID thrives off gang violence/riots and the overall abuse and neglegence that goes on in these prisons, sometimes resulting in the death of inmates. Blatant rapes are unreported. Prisoners who are mentally disturbed and need help has committed suicide, attributed to the neglegence. And I’ve seen it all with my own eyes. But they’ll never tell you that! That’s just too much like right.

  42. Jenn Fox on February 10, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Did he really ask if you can starve a man for a week? My God how much punishment do they wanna give these guys they are not supposed to receive corporal punishment their punishment is losing everything they had in society family, friends, freedom to live how they want only a sick person would want these people punished further… There are constant murders beatings and suicides. What a sick fool, they should have him spend a few weeks in prison see what he thinks after that.. talk about all the men they murder in the death chamber

  43. WILL JENSEN on February 10, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    really stupid bs

  44. Jerome Davis on February 10, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    What happened to prison being tough?

  45. KaceyIlliot1669 on February 10, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    It doesn’t bother me that they get a little something extra to eat with their money..maybe it is better they get it than be disruptive.

  46. yveslo lou on February 10, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    Shoot every third that will solve some problems

  47. Boog Dennard on February 10, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    Yeah they got it made. Got to keep from being raped or hole stabbed do in their lungs hart oh and most guy’s that ain’t in a gang have to pay money to live in prison or be beat, raped and stabbed

  48. Jayne Hinds on February 10, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    In Scotland they get cell phones best healthcare ,colour TVs you name it! Look it up,,they let murderers live together running thier own units cook thier own meals and use all proper kitchen tools,,and these units are g
    For long term killers

  49. Nate Devilin on February 10, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    This is bullshit. I did 11 years in Texas. In summer it gets up to 140 degrees in the cells. Several people die every year. Texas prisons are trash. I’m not saying we didn’t deserve it just setting the story straight.

  50. $mall Dollar$ on February 10, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    You called those steel bars and concrete walls better than free world schools!! Boy, you’ve never done a day in TDCJ!!
