I am so excited for the premiere of 60 Days In Season 3! I cannot believe they are filming in the Atlanta Fulton County Jail. That jail is legendary for being really, really bad. Is this even safe?
First of all the first seconds were clipped due to multiple tapings. But the scariest thing so far is that the inmates are familiar with 60 Days In and very suspicious. Oh fuck. I won’t be able to pull my eyes off the screen to type like other shows so this could take forever. We are two minute in and even knowing what I thought I knew my jaw is on the floor. Gangs are rough in Atlanta. I woke up one morning to go to work in the ghetto and my neighbor across the street whose side yard faces me had their wooden fence tagged by the local gang. These ain’t easy streets like you see on RHOA. And I live just outside the perimeter (OTP).
Fulton COUNTY jail houses around 2,500 inmates. That’s a COUNTY JAIL. And the COs have a history of bringing in drugs and contributing to the problem. It’s mayhem in there.
This episode will be about the new “inmates”and what the hell motivated them to go in.
Calvin is a teacher of high risk youth. Which makes me wonder, was this filmed in the hot summer time? Teachers need the summer to decompress. Did he really choose to spend his “down time” in prison? Wow,on top of it all he’s a SPED teacher. So much love for Calvin. He’s married with three kids. I want to give him all of my money. If I had money.
Fulton County Jail is a high rise. The male inmates will be on either four south 500 or four south six hundred. Both are medium security. Six hundred is for the older folk.
Jon is a criminal justice reform activist. He is white. He is movie star good looking. I am extremely worried for him. He’s has lots of experience in law enforcement and homeland security. I predict he will have movie agents calling him as soon as the show airs. He’s also kinda douchey. Like Zac. Zac has taught us to be wary of his kind. I’m already wary of this one.
The women’s jail is just as bad if not moreso. We won’t see people like Barbra treating the whole thing like a sleep over. This will not be a fun experience. They women in the South Annex do not play.
Mauri is a former corrections officer in a male prison. She hopes to see things from the other side. She worked in a maximum security prison and after writing up an inmate she was confronted by him with a cup of feces to her face. She’s tough. She should be alright. She’d like to see prison reform. I like her.
Don’s father was incarcerated. He too wants prison reform.He’s been married for 17 years and has four kids. I love him.
Nate is a white marine who thinks jail should be tougher. No phone calls. No TV. He’s going to see some suffering. White people in FCJ don’t fare so well in this jail. He just graduated college at 28 after doing two tours of duty. He wants the drugs out of the jails. He’s overconfident.
The men will be locked down with one other inmate for 15 hours a day. The women will be locked down in dorms of 8.
Jessica is married to an inmate she met while he was incarcerated. Her husband Rueben was incarnated for almost 11 years for a non violent crime. Sounds like drug dealing to me. Allegedly. They are now living very well it seems. They got married the day he got out of prison. She should be on RHOA. She could be BFF with Phaedra! She is leaving him with her kids even though she talks about how aggressive he still is. She thinks this will save her marriage. She’s Porsha stupid.
Speaking of stupid women, we have Michelle a white woman who is willing to do this. Her goal is to go to college. And you know to get a job. And she thinks her jail time will help her achieve these goals. I already predict she will tap out the first damn day. She’s dumb. But very pretty and she has a great relationship with her daughter. I can see myself loving her as the show goes on. But I really want he to tap out. Ha! Her daughter thinks she will tap our early. We shall see.
According to the FBI there are over 4o,000 gang members in Atlanta, according to Tamara Tattles that number is way low.
Gerson is a youth minister from El Salvador. I love him. He has a healthy fear of the experience.
Matt is a forty year old HVAC dude. He’s normal. He says he is a rebel that never got caught. I love him. He jokes that he might end up staying in jail. I believe that is foreshadowing because this time, someone agrees to stay for two seasons.
I like that the first episode is not about giving the their directions but how they deal with leaving their families. And off we go to lockup.Or not. We are going to training. Dammit, man.
Since the inmates probably loved the first season the tells are different. Gone is the white towel and the I miss hot coffee stuff. The new distress signal is hands behind your head and twisting. Instead of wishing for hot coffee it’s “I wish I had more TV channels.” Oh these people are so fucked.
Jon (the white pretty boy)is the first in. His covert is he is a paramedic arrested for distributing narcotics from his job. His intake process is insane enough to make him want to tap out. But he does not. It’s a group shower on intake. All clothes are gone.
On the women’s side Jessica is up first. same group shower. Jessica is a moron,
During the men’s intake a non member flashes a bag of drugs he brought in. WTF? He literally tells the cameras that is how the drugs come in. AND HE SIGNED A RELEASE. He’s Porsha levels of stupid!
The plant points out they do not do cavity searches or very serious searches at the Fulton County Jail.
Next week: It looks like Gerson drops out. I thought he would last longer… but I respect him for dropping out. I expect a LOT of drop outs this season. Yet some asks to stay another 60. So we shall see .
