    I think that some of the officers that run the visiting are some of the most rude and awful people on planet earth. I’ve never seen such heartless and disgusting people in all my days. I drive 18hrs from Richfield, MN to Cumberland, MD to see my husband and I can only visit for two days out of the week when I’m there and then they won’t give you enough time not caring that I’m so far away and it will be a while before I’m able to come back. One of the stupid women had the nerve to tell me that they where only required to give me an hour. Even though we request a special visit every time I’m coming, I still get kicked out of the visiting room just as fast as everyone else and there’s no exception and so I’m wondering why in the hell do we even bother to request the special visit if the officers working the visiting room just feel to hell with it. I’m thinking of contacting the commissioner and if there’s no help there, I will write the attorney general about the conduct of those people there.

      Hi Tinikia,

      We at prisonpath are sorry to hear of your visitation problems. Unfortunately, it is not an uncommon occurrence. In terms of your issues, I would also recommend contacting the prison chaplain for help. You should also contact the warden’s office about the visitation room’s obstacles to visitation.

        HAD THE CHAPLIN SET UP A TWO HOUR VISIT WITH OUR MINISTER AT WCI TO TELL OUR LOVED ONE HIS DAD HAD DIED. WAITED ONE HOUR TO SEE HIM. ONLY HAD ONE HOUR AND HE WAS STANDING BEHIND A GLASS WINDOW. VERY COMPASSIONATE PEOPLE IN THE DOC AT MD. DO NOT TELL THE CHAPLIN ANYTHING BECAUSE THEY WILL TELL ALL YOU TELL THEM. GO TO THE TOP !

      WOW I am so sorry about your visits, I to have 2 special visits next month, I am traveling from the UK to visit my love at NBCI I am not sure you all know but they have cancelled all Monday visits from now on and also they have changed the phone company to Global Tel which charge you $2.00 connection fee’s and then 12 cents a minute, that is a local call, nit sure how much long distance will cost, they seem to do anything to make the inmates and their families suffer, speaking to Bobby Shearin ( Warden ) his not very approachable so I may put a complaint into Gary Maynard.

    I UNDERSTAND THAT THE INMATES ARE THERE BECAUSE OF LIFE CHOICES. THEY ARE THERE TO PUNISH THEM AND TO PROTECT SOCIETY. TAKING AWAY PRIVILEGES TO THE EXTREME THAT MAKE THEM WANT TO REVOLT, FIGHT EACH OTHER OR KILL THEMSELVES IS INHUMANE. THE GUARDS ARE RUDE AND SHOW NO RESPECT FOR VISITORS. THEY WON’T LET YOU SEND ANYMORE BOOKS, WELL IF CONTRABAND WAS COMING IN BY WAY OF BOOKS IT HAS TO COME FROM THE GUARDS. THEY ARE VERY RACIST THERE AT NBCI. IT APPEARS THAT THE STATE OF MD. AND THE PRISON DO EVERYTHING TO MAKE IT HARD FOR EVERYONE FROM THE INMATE TO THE FAMILY. THE COMMISSARY PRICES ARE OUT OF SIGHT AND EVERYDAY ITS SOMETHING ELSE. I HOPE THE ACLU FOLLOWS UP ON COMPLAINTS THAT ARE BEING FILED BECAUSE WHEN ITS BETTER TO BE DEAD THAN IN NBCI SOMETHING IS SERIOUSLY WRONG.

    WHEN YOU TAKE EVERYTHING AWAY FROM THE INMATES, HOW CAN YOU NOT EXPECT THE INMATES TO FIGHT BACK? NO MORE SENDING BOOKS, NO COFFEE, NO FRIED CHICKEN, HARESSMENT FROM THE GUARDS, LOCKED UP LIKE ANIMALS AND NEVER SEE THE SUN! NO WAY TO USE THEIR TIME PRODUCTIVELY AND NOW NO TV, SUCH AS IT WAS. THE GUARD THAT WAS STABBED SHOULD HAVE BEEN MOVED TO A DIFFERENT TIER. NOT ALL INMATES ARE OUT TO FIGHT OR START TROUBLE.THEY ARE STILL HUMAN BEINGS.
