I’ve done a solid year in county. It sucked. But I’d do it again for $5 Million. I wouldn’t do 7 though. Shit even in state prison I could pay a gang $50,000 to protect me for a year.

Fair enough but it’s a dice roll, even if you roll it up and do your time in the SHU. If the gangs know someone is papered they just extort for more $. At 36m who cares lol but again you just never know !

I don’t think I could spend a year in solitary for any amount of money. That’s a decent point about the extortion, depending on the environment it would probably be best to keep to myself but you never know.

Now, minimum security prison is no picnic! I’ve a client in there right now. He says the trick is: kick someone’s ass the first day, or become someone’s bitch.
