So prisons are a mix of people who need each other to survive. Prisons mix two classes of people the victim class which are the prisoners and the victimizer class which is the prison staff. Stir in mega doses of racial hate, ignorance, stupidity, gangs, drugs, rape, vice and politics and watch all the excitement that results. Lock Up Diaries is an unflinching look at life in prison laying bare all the evils and hostilities that prison engenders. Amazon.com hates when I review a book about prisons because; I am brutally honest about the product and story told therein. Thank God I've never been to prison as an inmate but, I taught prisoners computer skills, community living skills and job seeking skills in preparation for release. The evils I saw were beyond beleif. I saw both the best and worst in humanity play out before me while teaching in prisons. I saw prison corrections officers who tried within the limits of the institution to treat their charges fairly. I saw others who relished their role as overseer with a sadistic pleasure that would make the marquis de sade look a novice at his craft.
Lock Up Diaries serves up prison life with a soul nourishing realness that makes one think long after reading its many unique and profound messages. Lock Up Diaries makes me happy I come home each night to the waiting arms of a luxury home, a few good friends and people who love me. Reading Lock Up Diaries and books like it remind me just how blessed I am to live free, have a nice job, friends I can trust and a beautiful home. I know only too well that I might have too easily been condemned to prison life in all its ugliness. There are likely so many mentally ill inmates in the snake pits of todays prisons since institutionalization. My hearts go out to the prison officers who must bring some order to the society of monsters prisons become by virtue of their populations. Lock Up Diaries is a real look inside the hellish walls of prison and everyone in prison is profoundly changed by the experience. Amazon.com will likely censor this review because; my prison reviews tell it like it is an autistic trait that keeps me in hot water everywhere.
Prison Killers Book 2
Another adventure of life in prison as we see it through the author's eyes. From entering the extreme heat of the desert prison to cataloging the area as BJ walks through another new prison. Getting the feel of the tensions between the races and the good and bad guards. And even the joy to find you have a good cellie and that you have a friend in the same prison. Lock Up continues to expand on the segregation of the races within and the tension it causes. Once again waiting for the moment they feel coming....when the one race has an opportunity to attack the other in senseless acts of violence. Driven by some unknown pride and forces that are hard to understand.
Sometimes it can be hard to read the truth about how the blood lust takes over these men, driving them blindly to attack someone because of their color or even the same race. Often so many men against one, even when the man is down the others are still driven to attack. How the adrenaline is so high that they continue warring although being pummeled by the block guns and their minds don't seem to clear until the rifle goes off and one of their comrades fall. Glenn writes in an extremely visual way....being he lived through many similar situations.
Lock Up Diaries is the 2nd book book in the Prison Killers Series. The first being Race Riots, the third is Gladiator and the fourth is Underdog. These are all shorter stories that can be bought separately or all four in one in Pelican Bay Riot. His two novels are Roll Call and Upon Release from Prison....following the author's life that led to prison and the struggles of life afterward.
**Language and violence. Considering the background of this book with drugs, gangs and prison, the author has kept all of this at a minimum.
I highly recommend this book. I am looking forward to reading the next book Glenn wrote.
