So anyways I had this friend who I used to hang out with a lot, he was actually a really smart guy its just that he was really wild. He actually had to go to rehab when he was 17 and did all types of crazy stuff. One day he stopped answering his calls and so I call his ex girlfriend after a couple months and I find out that he went to jail for burglary and selling stolen goods. Apparently he got on a shit load of drugs, broke into her house, stole stuff, and then got caught by her parents. Her parents call the cops and he runs away and sells the stuff on craigslist and gets a ticket to Alaska, only to be caught at the train station.... This is all crazy to me because the dude just turned 18 in December and is going to jail for like 4 or 5 months with 2 felonies.

Well anyways I was just wondering, who here has been to jail/prison and what was their experience like? If you havent been there, then maybe you know someone who has?

I kind of want to visit him but Im trying to save gas money and its a good 30 minutes drive from where I live. Thoughts?

Reference to an old rap group with a piece of their lyrics (Do or Die) who may have done time themselves.

Umm... I'd be kind of careful with a type of guy like that.

I've never been to jail... But the cops stole one of my older computers due to the fact that I've downloaded a butt load of music onto it!

Fun fact, I still have my 2TB music on my external HDD!

I dont think I have anything to worry about with him. Hes pretty normal around me except for a couple times he took his ex's father's truck for a joy ride and kept asking me to sell electronics for him to Gamestop when he was 17. Other then that, its cool. Its funny because he looks as if he were the most innocent guy in the world.

That's all? You didn't have to pay a fine or something?

I've had friends/family like that. You try to help them but most don't want it, just what they can get (or steal) from you to get their next fix or a place to crash. I've learned to just cut people like that out of my life, I've been burned too many times.

I've never been in jail or prison as an inmate, but I did work at a county jail as an officer for a time. It was when said county was laying off highway patrol officers left and right, it was a good paycheck filler.

You're story basically happened to a friend of mine, who nobody thought would have done such a thing, but the drugs will do that to you.


I'll tell you a story of how I came really close though, which is probably just as interesting. I'll start off by saying I've actually never done any drugs, and only have been drunk like 5 times in my life (yes yes I know, by actual definition alcohol is a drug, but w/e).

Anyway when I was like 17, me, my brother, and a bunch of his friends and my father went on a trip to ocean city. One of the nights there, while we were on the beach alone (without my father or anyone else near by), my brothers friends decided to whip out a huge bag of weed and whatever other drugs and started smoking. I just stood there. Now I don't know how, but some damn super cop ended up being like right behind us, and my brother and friends were caught red handed. Of course, I was there, so I got screwed. We were all cuffed and walked across the boardwalk like the scum we were (lol) and brought to the station.

EVENTUALLY I had to go all the way back to ocean city for court where the judge told me if I didn't want to end up in prison for the giant bag of weed (I was 18 by this point) that I'd have to go to rehab, so I did.


This had a hilarious outcome. Before the whole rehab thing, me and my brother had to go to some meeting where we would both have to sit one on one with some guy and he would ask us some questions or whatever separately.

Well I went in there and sat down, and looked this guy (or girl I don't even remember) directly in the eyes and told my story. I said something like: Look, I know this is probably unbelievable, but I've never done a single drug, smoked a cigarette, or been drunk in my entire life. Anything you tell me will be well noted but it'll be a waste of time. Then I told the story about how I was just with the crew who was doing the drugs.

She sent me on the way and I fully expected a letter from her or a call to see what the second step was, but they never even contacted me. My brother however, had to do all this other shit for them. It felt pretty good that someone had actually believed me. The people in the waiting room for the meeting I had to go to were all literally crack heads telling their story and I'm just there like.....yeaaah.

I went to jail last month. Due to self-defense with a guy on drugs that jumped me. I was arrested and I think the guy on drugs got to walk home. So i'm thrown in jail that night. The next morning I see the judge and he orders my release immediately because 1. It was my first time in jail. 2. The judge said I should have never went to jail in the first place. When the judge heard the names of the cops that arrested me it made him laugh and he knew who they were so I'm guessing this happens often with innocent people being thrown in jail.

BUT because I was in the mental-watch ward I couldn't be released that day because it was the weekend. People on mental-watch for some reason cannot be released or see visitors on the weekend. Even though the judge ORDERED my release be immediately. So I had to stay in hell for three days and one night. It was the worst experience of my life and I hope I never go back there.

So my court date is actually today. I go in a couple hours and I'm most likely going to have the case dropped but there is that slight chance that I may be charged with battery. Hopefully I'll be free and back on Crunchyroll!

LOL it was honestly a crisis. Now that it's long and past I feel like the whole thing was just a dream, but this ridiculous event actually happened! I'm so lucky I didn't have to go to rehab man. I would have freaked out. I feel like the chances of me doing drugs would have actually been higher if I had went to rehab in this case.
