Video visits for Yakima inmates
The gist of it is that there will not even be visits behind the glass, in British parlance 'closed visits' for inmates at the Yakima county jail. I want to know how it is contraband is an issue in a 'closed visit'? As well not mentioned in the article, if someone leaves money on an inmate's book so they can use the commissary, it's got to be a money order, which of course is an inconvenience to the families of inmates. Now I don't like criminals any more than the next person, and I realize that yes they are in jail and usually for good reasons, but making it harder on their families, and them than it's got to be isn't a useful thing. I do understand that the video option has certain advantages, such as maybe not needing to search people, making the visiting process go smoother, but it's got disadvantages too. I overheard a woman on the bus talking about it with her friend, that's where I got the detail about the money orders. She was in the paper and quoted in the story.
Well today was a hot day again. I was able to donate the adjustable bed to a boy's home. That leaves me with a book shelf and an entertainment center that have been rejected due to their age. They'd look fine if they were painted. I also have two school desks to get rid of. I am trying to arrange getting those items out of here. As things stand I have like one or two pick up loads of things that can go to the shed, kitchen things, and my luggage. I recieved papers from the title company of the buyers, and I filled those papers out and hand delivered them to the title company. Came home wiped out, rested for a bit, and then went out with a friend to go hear some music at the park. It was great fun. Got some more shisha work done while listening, my friend and her baby went to the pool since it was free. Anyway it's not like I didn't warn you that things will be erratic for a bit.
Then blogger ate my post, and I can't find the 'recover post' button. I wonder if they got rid of it, I had to re do it, and re-finding a couple stories was a problem.
