When I think of juvenile, I think of stanky kids with nappy hair runnin' around in green scrubs and broke sandals.
I think the BS food, that may be nutritious, actually taste like nothing so people gotta put a lot of salt and pepper and sugar on it to make it taste like something, sometimes even using all of them at once. At the end of the day, your blood pressure is gonna be as high as its ever been, or you might get diabetes so it defeats the purpose of eating this "healthy food."
The lights come on at 6 am and we eat breakfast around 7 am. After breakfast we go back to our cells until it's time for school at 8 am. We have 3 classes: English, Math and I don't know what the other one is, and we transition between the 3. There are about 15-20 kids per class. Lunch is around 11 am. School ends at 3 pm and we have a recreation for one hour from 3-4 pm.
We had two rec courts: An indoor rec, which is half a basketball court on the southwest side and an outdoor rec which is a full basketball court on the "roof." I say "roof" because it's like a concrete courtyard with brick walls on all sides about 50 feet high.
After recreation, we would have leisure time until lockdown at 7 pm. For the kids that have already graduated, so they say, or the kids that don't want to go to school, they go to the North Side day area from probably around 9 am til after lunch then they get put up. They come back out at 3 pm to "enjoy" leisure. On weekends or days we don't have school, everybody has that schedule.
On weekdays visitation is from 6 pm to 8 pm, on weekends it's 11 am to 1 pm & 6 pm to 8 pm. You get 30 minute "touch" visits from family only.
There are two cell blocks, or houses. The North side, which is way more more new but the rooms are way smaller and holds 72 kids. The South side holds, I think around 40 kids.
People smuggle drugs through visitation all the time, most commonly bars or Xanax. When it's time to go to court you just go down the elevator. There is no commissary, but you may get special food if you are tight with a guard or get selected for detail or cleanup.
Everyday there is going to be a riot or fight, most likely. When there is one there is usually 2 or more.
When I was there in 2016, from June to November, everybody there was black except me and Lt. W.
Most kids will go home or to the Department of Child Services after leaving, but some, depending on the seriousness of their charge or if they keep coming back, will get sent down the road to Jail East if they're still under 18 or to 201 Popular if they're older. Either way, once that happens it's time to stop thinking like a kid and man up. After all, you're now an adult in the states eyes so you will be charged as one. No more slaps on the wrist.
