Editorial Policy Statement

Jack Murphy (Murf the Surf), a past inmate of many prisons, once said that the only thing he learned behind bars was foul language and how to eat with a spoon.  We welcome any and all commentaries, including constructive criticism, controversy and political incorrectness, as well as uplifting stories, and even prison slang, all without censorship if editorially accepted.  However, this site will unconditionally reject any input found to include foul language or racial, ethical or religious discriminatory language. is dedicated to all the people that spend time behind prison doors–the inmates, the corrections officers, other law officers, administrative staffs, chaplains, medical personnel, visiting attorneys and civilian volunteers.  Any of these persons are invited to offer their guest commentaries or stories to this site.  This is your forum to air the pros and cons, the merits and deficiencies, and the successes or failures of the corrections systems.

We also hope that all persons that are trying to understand and improve the issues that lead to incarceration or reintroduction to society, or those trying to reform the correctional systems, as well as those who allocate funding for the penal systems will also feel free to offer commentary to this site.  And, of course, the general public that bears the tax burdens of our correctional systems are likewise invited to participate.

To propose a commentary, or submit one already in draft mode, simply email it to, being sure to include your name, email address and any other information you believe we should have, all of which will be held confidential.  We will evaluate the submission, determine its suitability for and accordingly advise you of our decision by email.  We reserve the right to make this decision solely at our discretion.  We also reserve the right to edit for spelling, typos, punctuation, font, etc., as necessary to maintain site uniformity.
