Questions & Answers

Q: What would cause someone to willingly want to go back to jail?

According to Big Hurt, a former inmate, people who have given up on life or feel they have no value in society may commit a crime to go back to prison. This offers them an escape from the burdens they faced on the outside.

Q: How do other inmates respond to someone intentionally trying to get themselves locked up?

Inmate reactions may vary. Some individuals with a similar prison mentality may associate with those trying to get locked up, while others may not care. However, intentionally seeking prison does not typically earn respect or admiration from other inmates.

Q: Is there a difference between county jail and federal prison in terms of stability and programming?

County jails have more varied populations, including drug addicts, purse snatchers, rapists, and child molesters. In federal prisons, the population is primarily made up of individuals serving longer sentences and who have conditioned themselves to make prison their home. Federal prisons tend to offer more stability in terms of programming.

Q: Are there any aspects of prison that could make someone want to go back?

Big Hurt firmly states that there is nothing in prison that would drive him to want to return. He felt like a loser, let his family down, and experienced racism, hatred, and a loss of personal freedom. The negative aspects outweigh any potential benefits.
