Wild Horses Tame Wild Men

Wild horses help tame wild inmates

At the Northern Nevada Correctional Center, inmates aren't the only wild beasts that need taming.

Prisoners have been given the task of taming wild horses that have been rounded up by the states Bureau of Land Management which is in charge of managing nearly 40,000 wild horses and burros that roam on 26 million acres.

This year's goal is to remove 12,000 wild mustangs from the range, and most of the animals will be put in BLM holding facilities, while about 80 will be trained by inmates at the prison.

Warden Jack Palmer says of the unique prison program:

"This is in my opinion one of the best programs the Department of Prisons has. This program … it teaches these guys work ethic. A lot of them come into prison, and they don't have a work ethic."

It's not just the prison staff who believe in the program either.

Thomas Smittle, an inmate who is doing time for embezzlement, says:

"This program has forced me to look at myself and I really had to grow up to able to be successful at it."

Country singer and Let 'em Run Foundation President Lacy J. Dalton is happy that the inmates are doing this task and hopes it continues. She uses a western expression to explain the effect a wild horse can have on a man, saying:

"Out here, you hear it all the time, a cowboy will say, 'The outside of a horse is good for the inside of a man.' "

We think this sounds like a fantastic program for the horses and the inmates.

Thoughts???

Animal Drugs For Death Penalty Execution?

Filed under: Legal Matters

jail

Oklahoma thinks it is a good idea.

There is a shortage in one of the drugs that's part of the lethal injection, therefore Oklahoma is fighting to be able to use a drug that is used to put down animals.

Pentobarbital is a drug that is used in animal euthanasia, and according to Oklahoma officials it is "substantially" similar to thiopental sodium, which is used in the lethal injection.

The sole manufacturer of thiopental is running low, and the earliest the doses will be available are January 2011. Thiopental does not actually kill inmates, however it works as an anesthetic.

Attorneys of inmates on death row have said that using pentobarbital, the animal drug, takes longer to take effect than sodium thiopental and inmates could not be "fully anesthetized" at the time the other drugs are given.

Hmmm…what do U think??

Lil Wayne Gets Prison Guard Suspended

Filed under: Oops!Lil Wayne

lil wayne gets security guard suspended without pay

Lil Wayne is scheduled to be released from prison in a week, but he managed to cause a lil bit more drama before leaving!

Captain Raphael Collazzo, a prison guard at Riker's, has been given a 10 day suspension, without pay, for making an unauthorized visit to Weezy while he was in solitary confinement.

At least 2 other guards have gotten into trouble for unauthorized visits with Lil Wayne.

Guess these guards are sick of the same old non-famous inmates. Must be worth some discipline for them to get some excitement in their lives.

If U were a guard at Riker's Island, would U risk getting in trouble to chill with Weezy?
