If Arrested, How to Survive Safely in Jail Until You’re Released
By Robert Davis
Greetings to all again;
I was asked by a loyal reader this question. He assured me he was not planning to commit a crime. He only thought if he was ever arrested by a rogue cop, or a couple of simple charges were placed against him and he had to go to jail,? he wanted to know what to do or not to do until he made bond. That’s a fair question.
First understand this, in a jail environment all? social issues and norms don’t apply. You are literally in what could be a dangerous environment.? So here are a few proven tips.
1)? Don’t walk in jail trying to make friends. Don’t introduce yourself, don’t extend your hands to shake another inmates’? hands.
2)? Don’t ask an inmate for anything. This means don’t ask for a cigarette, pencil or pen, food, nothing.
Believe me, you’ll? pay back more than you borrowed. This could be in the form of sexual favors, etc.
3)? Don’t stare at other inmates.
4)? Don’t be the first to say anything.
5) Find a space or corner of the jail that no one has claim, and sit there.
Things to do.
1)? Do walk in as if you’ve been there before. Inmates will sense a first timer and try to intimidate you. The inmates refer to this new inmate and his circumstances as ‘ being in his first rodeo’.
2)? If asked a question or if small talk is started by another inmate , by all means conversate, but only about that issue. This is also the perfect moment to say, ‘this is not my first rodeo’. Tell them you’ve been in jail five times or more!
3)? Get most of your sleep in the daylight hours, stay awake most of the night (most attempts of rapes occurs late at night ). The guards patrol more in the daylight.
4)? A follow up to the last sentence. It’s rare to be assaulted in a jail. Much more common in a state prison.
So don’t worry excessively about assaults of this nature.
5)? And finally, be the inmate that rarely speaks, that’s always daydreaming, that’s a little weird (talk to yourself if you must, OUT LOUD). Pace the floor.? Inmates are usually scared and afraid of someone who seems to have slight mental problems. They understand that this kind of person may harm them.
Listen, I don’t wish for? anyone to become incarcerated, but if for some odd reason you find yourself in this predicament, think only about surviving. Read my book COP OUT, an learn many more things.
Your friend, Robert
