Topic: Ever been in jail??? If so why???

Yup. 8 months.
12 grams of Mescaline. Not NOT that PCP crap kids call Mesc nowadays.

I guess we did way too much cause we started doing graffittis on the college walls so the police came and got us in. As I was the only one carrying it, the others didn't do time. What the H3LL was I doing with that much in my pockets is beyond me but nothing is logical on that dope lemme tell you. lol

I had Red Dreadlocks so the bad boys in the jail looked at me strangely but when they discovered I was diabetic and that I got the idea to let them use my needles to fix themselves they were protecting me.

I've always been a wise one. No idea what could've happened but I don't think it'd have been safe for me. Hahaha

Re: Ever been in jail??? If so why???

During my preteen years I was arrested for tagging a stop sign and building and a few years after that I was arrested and banned from a mall for a year for stealing clothes and hats. I did alot of stupid shit, but those days are behind me.

Re: Ever been in jail??? If so why???

I guess they're all behind us. Well hopefully that is. big_smile

Looks like we've got aa big thing for tags right??? Hahaha

Re: Ever been in jail??? If so why???

When I was in the Army, on a stupid dare, I attempted to steal a $200 leather jacket from the PX.  Plucked off the price tag, draped the jacket over my arm and tried to stroll out like it weren't no thang.  I made it about four steps out the door before store security popped me.  I was so guilt-stricken and ashamed that the MP commented they weren't even going to need the cuffs for me. lol  So they took me to the MP station, I sat in a cell for about two hours before my team leader came and picked me up.  Got an Article 15, 2 weeks restriction to barracks and a delay in rank.  It was only the second (and last) time I ever stole anything in my life.  The first time I was 7, stole a Snickers from a convenience store, then my mom marched me back in, made me hand it over, made me apologize, and asked told the clerk to punish me by making me sweep the parking lot. lol

Lucky it wasn't a car. You'd have been stuck in a cell for much longer...

Damn the stupid things we do sometimes. big_smile

Re: Ever been in jail??? If so why???

Never did any actually time, but have been thrown into the drunk tank numerous times. Nothing like waking up hung over on a cold concrete floor I don't miss that

Re: Ever been in jail??? If so why???

I personally miss that because it never happened to me. Yeah of course I fell asleep in the Subway but never been arrested because I was too drunk. And never had any hung over.

Damn, I wanna try that at least once in my life... lol

Re: Ever been in jail??? If so why???

Two years probation for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Ended up getting my record sealed. It became an issue when I applied for a gun license (hunting, I ended up getting it).
Hauled away with cuffs in the back of a paddy wagon. Only spent a night in jail.
Court case sucked. Cop outright lied. Was booked for grand larceny (auto). Ended up getting dropped to petty larceny. Thing is I didn't do it. Truly wrong place, wrong time. I was 18 at the time.
Never trusted cops since.

Urgh, very bad luck huh???

Sometimes stupid things happen. Like about 6-8 years ago, I was outta food so outta sugar and I was having one of my Sugar drops so I went to the hospital cafeteria and I took a few cookies cause I wasn't finding any sugar. The security guard came and I was sitting on a table eating them. He called the cops and I spent a night in jail. Then I didn't go to the court and let it pass. Then 6 years after last, not long ago really, cops came home and stuck me in their car up to the jail. While in the cell, I did another of these Sugar low so they got me to the hospital. Court happened in the morning so the judge said, yeah I read the papers and he REALLY said that:
Most stupid thing I've seen. He needed his sugar as you could have seen this morning.

NOT GUILTY. MWAHAHAHA
Strange that they waited so damn long though...

Re: Ever been in jail??? If so why???

Numerous times, but not like you think....I took Policing in College..I spent about 100 hours volunteering for processing, and clerical work...got so see some cool stuff from a relatively safe distance. 

I haven't ridden in the back of a cop car since I was 14...at that age, they don't throw you in jail

Re: Ever been in jail??? If so why???

^^^
Oh must have been cool. I don't like cops but I still admire the work they do. Strange but true. big_smile

And yes, why dya think I wanna get back to 16 years old??? You can do whatever crazy thing you can think of and get out of it without very big consequences. lol

Re: Ever been in jail??? If so why???

yeah, well...I didn't become a cop...it was too much for me..it's more than a job.  It's a way of life.  I like to keep my work and personal life separate and cops can't do that...so I just studied criminology instead..that's really what I was interested in anyways

Re: Ever been in jail??? If so why???

Heh...growing up, being a police officer was one of my two dream jobs.  The other being an English teacher.  Funny how things don't always turn out the way you plan...

Re: Ever been in jail??? If so why???

Never been to jail, but when I was 15 I got arrested (no cuffs). There had been an abandoned house and we broke in and smashed some shit. Nothing came of it.

Would've been a Trucker, a Fighter Pilot or a Race Car Driver. Missed my vocation totally. I became a Rebel Rogue Evil Punk instead. lol

JackBurton, crimes are fascinating I think it's because we wanna understand what made the killer do that. Or not, what do I know. Hahaha

And lucky I never been to jail for all the stuff I smashed down Theli, I'd be doing time for the rest of my life. MWAHAHAHA

Re: Ever been in jail??? If so why???

Never been to jail, but I've put a lot of people in there wink

Good job!!! big_smile

Re: Ever been in jail??? If so why???

Normally a lurker but just thought I'd post as have had a lot of jail experience - on both sides of the bars in England.

My Dad was a prison officer so when I left school - didn't do too well -  thought joining the Prison Service would be a decent job so I got in. I was 20 when I joined so was young enough as a Prison Officer. Got on OK with the job but didn't think it was for me for life and started to think about doing something else. My brother was in the Army and loved it and told me I should consider it so I did and signed up for that. I had done about 2 years 'in' prison by then.

I liked the Army at first and did well in training and then got posted over to Germany. Really enjoyed that but ended up getting into a bit of bother and stupidly went AWOL. I was gone for a few months but was tracked down. When I got back I spent a few days in the guard room and then got court martialled and got 3 months and discharged from the Army. I had to go back to MCTC Colchester (army jail) to serve my sentence. I remember being brought to the airport in Germany with two escorts for the flight and remember people staring at me as we sat waiting for the flight - probably because I was in uniform and handcuffed sitting between the two corporals escorting me.

Army jail was tough enough - loads of marching, doubling, drill and inspections and you had to earn every privilige. It was like being back in basic training but with less freedom and being treated like a screw up (I was I suppose) but I knew I would be getting out after it so just kept my head down and get on with it.

After getting out of the army I was just doing casual work and drinking alot and wasn't doing much with my life. I got arrested a few times over stupid things but then one night I got into a fight and ended up getting charged with GBH. I got 18 months for that. I was expecting something like that but it was still a shock to be back in prison but this time as a prisoner instead of an officer.

I remember going in and all the usual happening - handing over my property, getting strip searched and getting interviewed and thinking about how many times I had done that with other prisoners when I was a prison officer. I remember when I started off in the job thinking that prisoners were scumbags and deserved everything they got but it's very different when you are on the other side of the bars.

When I was in prison I got to do a few courses and things but realised that I had to change if I wasn't going to be going back again and I used the time as best I could but it was hard being in there - especially as an ex-screw.

I'm 29 now and since I got out I've given up drinking and haven't been in trouble since. I have a girlfriend now and  a kid on teh way so I think I am 'grown up' now and am a different person.

Re: Ever been in jail??? If so why???

Never been to jail. I don't think I could hack it even, I'd rather die than spend life in prison.

Re: Ever been in jail??? If so why???

spent a few nights in me local nick for possession of a Class A substance (Cocaine) Affray (got caught up in a fight with bouncers) and drink driving (banged to rights, blew 99 when the limit is 35) and I'm still banned from driving until February 2014. But Jail? Nah.

1 night in an English cop shop is more than enough for me. I'm far to used to me creature comforts like a comfy mattress to get sent to gaol. I still love me drugs but I never carry enough to get a custodial sentence for. Basically anything over a ninebar of pot or an ounce of Charlie is a no no so carry under that and you'll be released without a court hearing.

I refuse to answer on the grounds that i may incriminate myself. I plead the FIFTH!

Re: Ever been in jail??? If so why???

I spent a night in jail in Ottawa, about 20 years ago, for possession and drunk and disorderly.  I totally had it coming and was being a douche.

LOL

Re: Ever been in jail??? If so why???

I'm glad it was only for the night. I couldn't hack being in there for an extended period of time. I have delicate features and would no doubt fetch a high price on the cigarette market in the big house.

Re: Ever been in jail??? If so why???

A very nice wH3LLcome to the MADhouse jamie29. And very interesting story to read you've given us. And you know what??? I'm glad my small 8 months was beaten up by you. lol
Nice job on the new life.

A douche Joey Ramone??? Mwahaha
