My son is currently in Mahanoy state prison. He is there because of addiction problems. Yesterday his girlfriend came to visit him. She put her hand on his leg(not penis), and the guards watched for 3 minutes before they sent him to solitary confinment for 1 to 3 months. They WATCHED this for 3 minutes or more. Why? They wont show the video they supposedly have of this. But they snatched him up like an animal to go and be abused and tortured. You may say what you like, but if this happened to your son, you would be upset to.

I read your comment about Mahanoy Prison and I feel for you. That is so SAD! One to three months of SOLITARY CONFINEMENT for a silly thing like that. I grew up in Mahanoy City and I couldn't wait to get out of there. They have MEAN and GREEDY people in that town. And the worst part about it, there is NOTHING there. Pretty soon, it will be a GHOST TOWN with a PRISON in it!!! I am terribly SORRY that incident happened to your son and I FEEL for YOU!!! My prayers are with you!

Has anyone heard of mahanoy forcing medication on the inmates? I have an issue that needs to be raised but I can not get in touch with anyone that will listen. Any suggestions?

This is a prison. They are all the same--filled with people on control trips that can't work elsewhere because they themselves are misfits. So what's new? My son has been in trouble since 12yrs and continues to do things wrong. No excuses. I have been subjected to guards lying about situations and then he is punished for things he never did, because some guard lies and is believed. Prison is a joke and most inmates are abused by a majority of the guards mainly because they can. Also, nobody is there to protect the inmates and no one on the outside knows what is happening. Also, if you're related to an inmate you're considered and treated like piece of crap too. It's never going to change because that's prison. Don't get yourself there...because your life is basically ruined after a stint in there.

I spent 38 months in Mohanoy and it was crazy, guards for black inmates and others for white.
All persons are the same in my eyes, hatred is a bad thing.
Some guards were decent to their credit and I have been in many prisons, camphill was the worst, try coming to a canadian prison, no more work programs, methadone for all.
Mohanoy had an auto cadd course which is good, not sit idle.
