I know no one will get the chance to go after her, but there is no doubt more then a few convicts would love to hurt her, then again, some cons would love to hurt or attack anyone rich or famous.

Well, I guess I cannot argue that point. Some folks have a peculiar honor system in the can. They'll go after snitches, rival gang members, and people who stroll in there and talk sh*t. Paris is about as tough as vanilla pudding. There is no "honor" in beating up a basket case. Regular people survive by just keeping their mouths shut, and blending in. My bf was sh*tting bricks when he went in, but he's a cool guy and there was no problem. Same with my ex brother in law. When there was a race riot, the guards hid him, being white and all ;)

We never heard of panic buttons in cells before today. I can see why they'd be needed in certain circumstances, though.

They will readily snitch each other off in a second. Most of them are pathetic and were really rescued from the outside world.

The really dangerous ones are those who are transported alone or aboard an aircraft in small groups, unlike those who arrive en mass like common cattle on a bus.

I've had a few friends do time.

They had or have different personalities.

That said, from what they told me, going after certain people or types of people, does get you a name and respect. Normal people might keep their mouths shut, but some might want to attack a rich and famous person just to keep from getting any crap from other folks (I haven't even bothered to talk about the gangbangers because its known they always want a name).

One of my buddies who is a prison guard told me he hated celebrity (celebrity being defined as anyone in the media, not necessarily an actor or something like that) prisoners because everybody wants to kill them or attack them so they can be a name for themselves.

Funny story, he was also one of the guards on the scene when Colin Ferguson beat the living hell out of Joel Rifkin......the two of them had an arguement about who was the worst killer.

Depressing when you think about it....also Ferguson won.
