    Default Gay prisoners in Kentucky

    I know this has been raised many times before:

    Beware of prisoners in Kentucky presenting as gay.

    I encouraged three of my gay friends to write to prisoners. They all wrote to different individuals at the same prison. The responses they got were all virtually identical in content, and two of them were in the same handwriting. None had any reference to things my friends had said. All asked for assistance with the costs of postage.

    Yep. A well known problem. Or at least, should be well known by public service messages like this one! What's up with Kentucky, I ask you!

    All those gay male prisoners in Kentucky, six pages worth on writeaprisoner alone.

    Not a single reference to Barbra Streisand?

    It cannot be coincidence.

    it's funny that they think no one's on to it by now. (like we all don't talk to each other, or at least glance at these forums perhaps.)

    Having lived in Kentucky I can shed a bit of insight in this. Well not this in particular but the attitudes in general. I know Im gonna offend some, but I lived there and seen it. There is more people per-capita there on "disability" then everywhere else n the country. They also have the highest car insurance rates in the entire country in south eastern Kentucky. You know why? I asked the insurance agent why, and he said that area has the highest rate of staged accidents and insurance fraud in the country... You know wh? The people there dont want to work. So they use fraud to get what they want without working for it. Same goes in the prisons there, and NOT just the mens. I worked (Im ashamed to say) for CCA, at Otter Creek Correctional, in Wheelwright, KY and knew many employees there... At that time it was a womens prison, and the guards would talk about some of the scams the women were running, and that the men used to run when Otter Creek was a mens prison. Which it now is again. One of the biggest for the women, and men, was to pretend to be gay/lesbian in order to get more money from the outside, as it was seen that gays tend to be more giving, and forgiving, to their friend, family, and penpals inside...

    In my time there, from may 2007 to july 2010.. I found Kentucky to be the most user personality state I have ever been in. Just for a frame of reference, I have lived in 47 different towns in 11 different states, so I do know whats good and whats not...

    So what is it about Kentucky that promulgates this "user" personality?

    What saddens me most, is that the genuinely gay and lesbian folk in Kentucky prisons suffer from of the bad reputation that the State has, as a result of these scammers' efforts.

    All three of my friends chose to find another prisoner to write to, but all agreed not from Kentucky.

    Maybe if enough of us wrote letters to random "gay" kentucky prisoners, explaining the situation, the scammers would be warned off?

    Along the lines of : "Gay Kentucky prisoners are suspected of being scammers, so I was reluctant to contact you. However, if you are who you say you are, and can accept that I will not send you money, please reply."

    Would only take 12 of us to email 5 letters each.

    ?????????????????????
