It’s an interesting article. I don’t work in the corrections field at all but I have heard that there are some prisoners that have been in so long that they are totally “institutionalized” meaning that they are psychologically incapable of living outside of the institutions environment.

The end result is that they become permanent “trustees” and they are put on welfare and the welfare payments pay for them to live inside the institution.

Now once again I DO NOT know if this is true, I’ve just heard about it from others who say it is.

Ed McDonnough: You mean you busted out of jail.

Evelle: No, ma'am. We released ourselves on our own recognizance.

Gale: What Evelle here is trying to say is that we felt that the institution no longer had anything to offer us.
