4.0 out of 5 stars Do'in Time In Lavenworth, 30 Jun. 2006
This review is from: The Hot House: Life inside Leavenworth Prison (Mass Market Paperback)
The USP prison at Lavenworth in Kansas is one of the Federial Bureau of Prisons Maximum Security prisons. Other jails in the Lavenworth area are Lasing and the USDB at Forth Lavenworth which holds sentenced military persons NCO and officer rank from all 5 stands of the US military who are serving 7 or more years. The USP at Lavenworth holds many maximum security prioners sent to prison by the Feds. Lavenworth is known as the second worse prison in the US after USP Marion ILL. This book tells the story of those who are serving time (alot of time in most cases) in Lavenworth. It tells the stories of some of those who live within its walls. This book is not a defender or an oppressor of the population of Lavenworth just a look at life as most of us (thank God) will never see it. It exposes the cruelties of prison and the belief that who you know inside might be better than what you know. It is sad too sad that so many peoples lives have been ruined. The victims, the prisoners and in some cases the guards. No person in there right mind would want to spend any time in Lavenworth but reading this book may make you think about those who sit on its wings and its death row. Not just in Lavenworth but in Terre Haute, Marion and all the rest. It should also give you an insight into a huge fedral prison. Good work Pete

Why does she keep misspelling the prison's name?
