Welcome to the Zombie Popcorn’s Post from Prison Series.
Zombie Popcorn is opening its pages to the words of an individual who is sitting in prison. We will get first hand experiences about life in prison. They will talk about their likes, loves, dislikes and what is is like being in prison. Our first ‘Post from Prison‘ goes by the name, “Z0mbi3Kid“. He would like to remain anonymous and he will post under that name. This ensures that he can speak freely without the fear of being reprimanded.
You will be able respond to his writing in the comment section under each post. I will then print out the post page and mail it to him for his response.
You can always find the other letters in the ‘Post from Prison’ archive.
- Letter 11
Well, it’s me again. I am still here at the Moore Unit. We are on yet another lockdown. Actually, this one was welcomed, because I was ready for a break from everything. I ended up getting my trusty status, which is great because it is a big plus for parole. But instead of making it to a trusty camp where I would have my own cubicle, my own fan, my own radio, my own desk in my cubicle, and able to go to commissary or recreation anytime I want and living in a building with no locked doors or fence around it. I am one of the less fortunate trustys who got assigned to work on a transfer facility like the Moore Unit. It could have been worse though. There is only a couple trustys here and we pretty much got things going our way.
I am working as the outside yard grounds keeper. Which means I do all the landscaping and stuff up at the front parking lot and out front of the unit – like picking up cigarette butts in the parking lot, mow, weed eat, etc. It is pretty laid back job. Especially, since I don’t have anyone watching over me. Pretty soon I am going to go to work at the dog kennel.
My job there will be to take off running through the woods a couple of miles and lay and hide for the dogs to come find me. I then put on one of those dog attack suits and wait on the dogs to find me and attack me. I will also be caring for and feeding them 7 days a week. My responsibility will also be to feed the horses owned by the unit.. I think it will be awesome to be able to interact with these animals on a daily bases. You really take that kind of thing for granted out in the world, being able to pet and love on a dog. I did anyway.
Other than all that – everything else if fine. I could leave here anyday to go to a trusty camp or somewhere else. I hope so anyways. That is about it for now, I am still waiting to see parole it should be about 4-5 months from now. I’ll write again soon when I know more.
