With only three undercovers left in the Etowah Jail, my duties writing 60 Days In recaps is rapidly coming to a close. Wikipedia is showing one more episode and it doesn’t seem like it is a reunion. We definitely need a reunion for this season, A&E!
Listening to Sheriff Horton talk about the jail he inherited and how it was full of drugs. Why did it take 60 days in to do simple things like start searching the inmates and doing a full drug sweep of each pod? Why don’t they watch the security cameras with the security personnel here and there? We are getting a review of all the tap outs and Ashley’s pull out. Perhaps the next episode is a reunion. It’s time to pull out the last three.
Dennis managed to buy meth from Megatron and then he gave some to Megatron for his personal use. He is such an idiot. Then he turns what little he has left over to production because he is afraid to have it on him. They give it to the Sheriff.
Tony is getting too full of himself. He’s starting to have an inmate mentality for real. We have seen this on other seasons. Is he saying he has $300 of earnings from his commissary in cash? Or in trade? How would there be cash in the jail?
Dennis gets released and he walks like he has been riding in the rodeo for year and his legs are stuck on bow legged. He runs to the van. He has smuggled his shank out of jail. Why is that a big deal. I can’t believe they have to go through a metal detector on the way out.
Tony is released. And he leaves his massive commissary to his two cell mates to split. Tony is so happy to be out. So, you know they are going to ask him to do 60 more days.
Jennifer is the last one standing in the women’s pod. She is at a church service in the pod praying when she hears Ciara going off in her cell again. She stays on the ground floor with the church group and looks up at Ciara and starts praying for her. Ciara seems to calm down. Apparently, Jennifer’s plan is to pray the demons out of Ciara. I am all for that but she needs to be taken out of there and put somewhere where she can get on some medication.
Much later, Ciara has popped her locks (again, why is this a possible thing?) and is running around the pod talking about demons in her cell. (gee I wonder where she got that from?) Ciara tell the others that all it takes to pop the locks is to throw a bottle of water on them.
What Are The Requirements To Be A Guard?
On a side note, perhaps there should be a physical exam for the guards. Check for medical issues and also have them pass a physical test and show they can run quickly to the scene of a disruption. The one on duty now at least seems to know she should stop Ciara from threatening people. However a glacier could have grown out to reach her faster than the guard, who seem to give up on the first landing of the staircase. Jennifer actually is the one who talks her down. So the guard wants Ciara to sleep in Jennifer’s cell.
When Ciara goes in for the night with Jennifer she seems sane. She starts talking about how being locked up alone all the time makes you crazy. She says it like a perfectly normal sounding person. They are basically having a sleepover. Ciara says she has a prescription for Adderall and Xanax in jail and when she doesn’t get them she takes ICE to hold her over. Why is she not getting her meds?
And what idiot prescribed those to meds together? They literally do the opposite things. She doesn’t need the Adderall. But she is probably addicted to it by now. Oh wait. Those her prescriptions on the outside. They give her NOTHING on the inside. They don’t give anyone their meds on the inside. So that is why she takes the ICE. That is insane. It’s even crazier when Ciara says she was focusing on Jennifer in the church service because she was the only one she could see. She says it calmed her down. Jennifer is released what seems to be the next day.
Showdown With The Sheriff
Both Sheriff Horton and Chief Peek are not thrilled with Dennis’ performance in the jail. Dennis walks into the meeting expecting some sort of reward. The seem grateful for him getting the shank out. But it seems he did too little too late.
Jennifer once again mentions the fact that the intake process is a joke. They were told that the cell locks could be disengaged with water. Sheriff Horton says Jennifer was fine from an evangelical standpoint. However, they really need more information.
Tony has a ton of information especially about the guard training. They don’t have enough equipment on their belts. It doesn’t appear they have been properly trained. During the stabbing they basically did nothing at a no time was the attacker even restrained. Tony also had two shanks, a razor blade, coke, clone and just a ton of information.
During the debrief with production Sheriff Horton says he would do it again if they had more people like Tony. So they are doing another 30 days with all law enforcement types. The next episode title is Special Ops so it might be just one episode of highlights? I dunno. But it looks even rougher than the first round.
