Default MSNBC 'Lockup' Crew coming to Santa Rosa CI

http://www.postonpolitics.com/2011/0...-to-fl-prison/

Florida officials have opened the gates at a Panhandle prison to MSNBC‘s “Lockup” film crew for two months, according to a Department of Corrections press release.

A team from 44 Blue, the production company in charge of the series about life behind bars, began filming this week at Santa Rosa Correctional Institution in Milton this month, the release said...


Well, what do you know....this should be nothing but interesting, nothing at all.

Wow! I am addicted to watching Lockup because I want to try to understand what my husband is going thru because he will not discuss prison life. I am glad they will finally be showing a Florida prison for a change. The only thing they have ever shown in Fl was Miami and Tampa county jails.

very interesting, indeed!!

I actually did wonder if they would come to FL after Buss took over. I recall some episodes when they were in Indiana where he was interviewed by the Lockup crew.

Thanks for sharing

Well, yes...they will be here.

But, it's TV....yall please don't take that mess for real life. That's how it looks and that's real prisoners and employees, but that's about as far as it gets.

I might watch one or two myself. I have always wanted to see what a dorm and other stuff 'on the inside' looked like....

But, really....I watched several when it first came out and I just couldn't beleive they were showing all these enraged prisoners and no reason for them to be that way and not showing or at least explaining why they were so donkeyed up. These prisoners down here don't act like that with out damn good cause because these brown boys and girls down here will mace the living day lights out of them.

There's just too much left out and it kinda makes me sad that folks fall for this mess.

It's TV for goodness sake. Do you think beat down or every day, but severe mental abuse is going to make it past the editing?

What will be interesting is when our loved ones are home and what they think of how these shows compare!

Yeah, they went a couple weeks ago to do interviews and get the layout and feel for the place and see who all wanted to be involved. Filming isn't supposed to start for a minute.

I watch this show too...just started to actually...they had a marathon on it last night. I'm scared out of my mind now. I want to believe that it's all just for t.v. and ratings...but these gangs fights and stabbing attacks scare the living daylights out me. Someone please tell me that BC (who's respectful, not a trouble maker, and surely not a fighter) won't up with stab marks all over his body like some of those inmates in the show and that he won't die...tell me he won't get killed in there. He's medium custody now. But only because he just finished orientation and I guess they can lower your custody level over time. Today is not a good day for me, and after watching that show I'm more scared for his life than ever before....

I would almost want to say it's doubtful, but no one can promise that. This is where the prayer and faith come in. Extreme hard times....when you don't know exactly, you can't be there to see and you don't know just what is going on...brings new meaning to faith, hope and love and will.

i always wondered when they would come here. i always figured the corrupt DOC here doesnt wanna have hide stuff

they shoulda came down to brevard when it was open...

these shows are not that accurate tho. guard throws down the n word and rips up ya photos, but MSNBC will only show u cussin at them in order to justify use of force. its bs.

Gov. Scott shut down production and sent the Lockup filming crew from Santa Rosa. A statement from his office said Buss did not have the authority to approve any filming in FL prisons.

I hate these shows and refuse to watch them. My hubby watches sometimes. I don't get the fascination. Seriously. I never have.

From the article:
Quote:
"I have no qualms about them coming into our prisons. I'm proud of our staff and how well our facilities are run, and I hope this will help Floridians understand the challenges we face with our inmate population, as well as the benefits prisons provide to their communities through our programs and re-entry efforts," Buss said
.

What kind of drugs is this guy on?

I read the article at work today.. I figured Scott would do this.. he is just once again showing that he has power.. He is a power hungry man who doesn't stop to use his head.. He hired Buss to run the prison's, why does Buss have to run something past him?

That is good because I heard he thru a
monkey wrench in before and said that all
filming of any Florida prison will not be allowed.
I am glad it is back on to educate the public and
families that support the incarcerated on how their
love one lives from day to day.

A better and more accurate statement would be 'so we can see what makes it past the editing floor and Rick Scott.

Cause I'll put a year's worth of pay checks on the truth and the whole truth NOT making it to the public.

I'll add to that year's worth with a year's worth of my own. We all know how this is going to go down, inmates will end up looking like animals while staff with be the angels who save the public from said animals.

Well since they are at SRCI they'll probably just show the guys on CM and talk about why they are there...
