tv Lockup Holman--- Extended Stay MSNBC August 9, 2015 9:00pm-10:01pm PDT
america's prisons, dangerous, often deadly. there are 2 million people doing time. every day is a battle to survive and to maintain order. >> down on your feet. down! >> located in the deep south, holman correctional facility, where most are serving life sentences. we spent months documenting life on the inside, where the prisoners have nothing but time and nothing to lose. this is "lockup: holman, extended stay."
it requires a unique set of skills to run a violent prison like holman. >> on this side, on this side, all the way to the back of it. >> warden grantt culliver embodies them. he's authoritative. >> you know that! >> dynamic and tough. >> you are not going to win an academy award. >> he shows compassion for the inmates he oversees, many of whom will never get out. but when violence explodes in holman, his zero tolerance policy is in full effect. >> lock it down. lock down. we are under a lockdown.
administrative segregation is home to roughly 200 inmates. confined to their cells 23 hours a day. these men often become defiant and desperate. when an inmate acts up in general population, he's moved to ad-seg. but when he acts up in ad-seg, the officers' only option is to periodically move the inmate from cell to cell. >> jamie bell, we're going to move him out. be a little particular with him because he's already hostile, you know. let's just use caution with him, okay? >> put your hands behind you. cuff up.
>> stick your hands out. >> shower stall right now. >> jamie bell is temporarily housed in the shower stall until his new cell is cleaned and inspected. >> all i'm asking is that somebody stop harassing me! >> our crew first met jammy bell a month earlier when he was outraged over unsanitary conditions in his cell. >> i can't breathe in here. my toilet is full up with feces. >> today, he's moving to a new cell after an inmate threw urine and feces through his ventilation. >> you're going to have the same problem, man. [ bleep ]. >> you sit up there and what do you're supposed to -- >> that's what i'm trying to do. >> let me see your hands. >> [ bleep ]. the guy's all over me. [ bleep ]. i can't sleep.
>> jammy bell, listen, listen. >> [ bleep ]. >> the department has this thing about profane language. so you got a guy that's acting out. you go up to him and you say, joe, i need to you quit banging on that door. i'm trying to talk to you. i'm trying to talk to you. >> you're telling me a lie! you're telling me that you will be -- >> crazy as hell. you think he understands that? it don't click. >> if you would shut the [ bleep ] up, you might understand nobody would be so pissed off at your ass, acting like a [ bleep ] child! >> i ain't acting like a child! >> you're acting like a damn child! everybody tired of your ass here. >> i'm tired of your ass! >> if i can get to your language, if i can get to what you understand day-to-day, then
that's what we use. when all else fails, we take it up a notch further. >> take his ass, put him there, leave him there. >> put your hands out there. >> [ bleep ]. you'll kill me! >> you are going out [ bleep ]. >> [ bleep ] i'm not going to put my hands out. >> i'm not going to let one individual disrupt a thousand. okay? so, if force is needed to remove you from one area to the other, so be it. >> are you going to cuff up? >> you make me cuff up! this man threatened my life, told me he'd take me down -- >> that's good. well, he refused to cuff up and come out. we're going to move him out because he caused a disturbance, and the warden said move him out of the bull pen, let him get some fresh air and calm down. he's refusing to cooperate. wouldn't cuff up. i gave the officer an order to spray him. after a short period of time, he'll cooperate and be ready to come out and get the spray off
of him. it may take him a bit longer than normal today, he's pretty agitated. >> he sprayed me for no reason! >> let's go ahead and finish moving him. i'll check back on him. if he continues to get louder, i'll call the warden and possibly do a cell extraction, get him out here, let the unit get calm again. everybody is in an uproar at the moment. >> [ bleep ]. >> he's getting loud enough. i think i'm going to have to make the call. >> after more than an hour of continuous yelling, the sergeant is left with no choice but to inform the warden. >> we sprayed jammy bell. he's still refusing to cuff up and come out. he's pretty loud and getting louder, it seems like. go ahead and go in and get him? that's what i was hoping but i wanted to make sure you was good with it. thank you. all right, fellas, we're going to do a cell extraction. >> i'll give you one more chance to cuff up and come out, jammy. >> where i going? that's what i'm asking. >> listen to me one time. put the handcuffs on. come out the cell.
it will be all right. >> let's go to the bull pen. >> i'm mad because you-all doing your jobs incorrectly, man. >> any one of them. >> talking all that [ bleep ], man. [ bleep ]. you suck my [ bleep ], you coward mother [ bleep ]! >> he'll be out there till we get everybody else in. he calms down, we'll bring him back. if he gets in compliance, we'll bring him back. if we have to, we'll do whatever it takes. >> [ bleep ], [ bleep ] my ventilation, and they allowing it! >> somebody told me you were going to do an audition for "american idol." y'all got that together? >> we're going to get it together. >> when i came in five years ago, one of the things was to try and change the culture of this facility from a no-care type of an attitude to let
people know that we did care. you are locked up but then you should consider this as home, because the majority of you, that's what it is. >> let me step back in the barber shop. get your shirt on. like you're supposed to. >> i don't like sloppiness. i just think you can do better. if you can't do any better, it's one thing. but if you can do better, you need to take care of yourself. get your clothes together, guys. get your clothes together. get your clothes together. >> warden culliver is a sign of change. since he's been here, he's implemented several good programs. >> the facility used to be open. you could go and come as you please. so we implemented a few things. you're not allowed to go into anybody else's housing unit, we went to an armband system to help the officers identify which housing unit you should be assigned to. >> the band has my name on it. it serves as an identification as far as my living quarters. every dorm here has a band and the band indicates what color the door that you walk in.
it's a controlled environment, a structured environment. >> people feel a lot more comfortable now. you don't have guys that sleep with their knives as much now. but i attribute that to staff. i attribute it to some of the control factors that have been put in. i attribute it to the overall culture of the facility changing. >> once a week warden culliver walks the tiers of ad-seg, acting as a sounding board for these men locked up 23 hours a day. >> thought you liked lockup. you don't like lockup? why you keep coming back? >> i'm pretty much a straight-up guy. if that kind of steps on your toes a little bit, that's not what my intent it. but i need to give to it you straight. >> your mouth. you're going to have to learn to control that. if you're ever going to make it. >> we deal with people. that's what we do. it takes a hell of a person to deal with people that no other citizens want to be bothered with, to be able to walk among
these people day in and day out, give instructions, tell them what to do, manage them without creating problems. next on "lockup: extended stay" -- >> move it. lock him up. >> violence erupts in holman. and for warden culliver, that means no holds barred. >> i want the whole housing unit locked down. we are under a lockdown. r. i found her wandering miles from home. when the phone rang at 5am, i knew it was about mom. i see how hard it's been on her at work and i want to help. for the 5 million americans living with alzheimer's, and millions more who feel its effects. let's walk together to make an even bigger impact and end alzheimer's for good. find your walk near you at alz.org/walk.
that's why at xfinity we're hard at work, building new apps like this one that lets you choose a time for us to call you. so instead of waiting on hold, we'll call you when things are just as wonderful... [phone rings] but a little less crazy. we're doing everything we can to give you the best experience possible. because we should fit into your life. not the other way around. just as the crew is wrapping up for the day, the violent side of holman erupts. >> move it. lock him up. move it. move it.
>> i got a knife. >> get me some pictures. >> don't step in the blood. >> get my hall crew up. get a mop and pail. they'll come here and start the cleanup process. >> what happened, we were getting laundry in, come back here, got up in the receiving area. they were in front of the unloading the laundry. heard him screaming. looked up and he was bleeding. grabbed him, pushed him out of the way. where he had him cornered up at, he could have probably killed him if he wanted to. looked like he may have got an artery. he was gushing out pretty good. >> he was in laundry. >> he has possession of a
weapon. he's documenting that and processing the weapon as we speak now. >> didn't have a handle on it. it's been on a grinder. i didn't want to touch it with the blood. i didn't see him pick it up. it's a good chance it was dropped off there by the metal fab near where we were taking the laundry. he picked it up laying in the grass or something. this is not the first time. >> by the time we got there, blood just everywhere. >> come on, man. i told you folks. >> lock it down. i want the whole housing unit locked down. we are under a lockdown. >> all right, lockdown, gentlemen. let's go. take it in. let's go. >> someone just made it easy for you this afternoon.
just a lot of [ bleep ]. don't got to worry about no yard, don't got to worry about nothing. >> unloading the laundry outside the 53 gate, the guy that got hit was over in laundry. and he handed a barrel to terry. when he handed it to him, i heard him holler, oh, [ bleep ]. come down with a knife, hit him. >> they were on the inside? that was the handle? >> yeah, this is the handle. still got a burn mark on it. it just got bladed out of the metal fab. getting the laundry in, somebody had laid it out there for him. >> came out of the laundry, that's what you said? >> yes. he was just holding the barrel up. >> all he had to do was open the barrel and find a wet rag inside. >> we got a motive, tennis shoes. >> sold him shoes, tried to sell them back to him. >> they worked on the laundry crew together. >> we're going to lockdown.
i'm irritated with the stabs. we're having too many. we're having too many stabbings. not accustomed to it. we're having four stabbings a year. it's july, we've already had four stabbings. and we seem to be increasing. for whatever reason. we shouldn't be increasing. we're just trying to check. we'll go back through and check, see what we can find out information-wise. >> why does the whole prison have to go on lockdown? >> because that's what i want. that's what i feel like is best right now. they need to understand i'm just not going to tolerate it. another day in the penitentiary. another day. >> less than 24 hours after the stabbing, the warden has regrouped, taken the prison off lockdown, and is back in control. >> we get these out of here. we had the hall looking great last night. let's try and keep it like that. >> we learned a few things yesterday, which is always good.
if you have an incident, at least make the best of it, try to learn what you can out of it. and so we reorganized the laundry, the way we bring our laundry in. the piece of metal looked fairly fresh, coming off a grinder. i feel that took place in the metal fab. we have a couple suspects that may be producing weapons in the metal fab. we'll be looking at that to try to pull those guys out. it was actually about shoes being stolen. one of them said he paid the guy three bags of coffee. and the guy stole the three bags of coffee plus didn't bring his shoes back, so that's why he stabbed him. he had about three stab wounds. the one in his side was serious. the doctor told him they just missed getting his liver, which would have been, could have been, terminal. but after we got him back in from the hospital, he went on to ad-seg, and, of course, terry is in ad-seg. they both will go through disciplinary process.
moore is probably going to get a disciplinary for assault with a weapon. he's looking at quite a long time in the segregation unit. next on "lockup: extended stay" -- >> it's not my first stab, it probably not going to be the last time. >> stabber terry moore operates by a different set of rules. >> it's what had to be done. and later -- >> the warden shows a softer side. >> eat your ice cream cone.

(bark) they would read helpful hotel reviews... he would practice. (bark) until one day... .
that transformation. this nondenominational self-governing dorm provides opportunities for inmates to achieve personal growth. >> men can come into that environment, be nurtured in their spiritual needs, i guess is one way to put it. they have an opportunity to be productive, have a sense of purpose in life. >> good morning. how are you doing? >> living area, without a doubt, is much better than general population is. there are more tvs, there are more opportunities, you have computers, but everything is more structured, which means that there's a point systems, so if you mess up, you get points taken away, you have to keep a certain point level to be able to stay in the dorm. any type of disciplinary action, you get moved out of the dorm. >> this is sort of like the home away from home. hopefully, this is temporary. very temporary. >> michael jordan was sentenced to life without parole for charges ranging from rape to burglary. he has called prison home for
the past 24 years. >> after the honor dorm was developed, i was still a little reluctant. this was a concept completely new to all of us. i put in an application, got involved before i started doing janitorial work or whatever was needed of me originally. i went from that to taking on leadership roles. currently teaching classes. >> each inmate in honor dorm has a job. ray everidge is serving life for theft. his job is dorm security. >> my job consists of monitoring the dorm. i walk down each aisle and check what they call uniformity. uniformity is where you check to make sure all the beds are properly clothed and make sure all their living area is in order. >> in general population, correctional officers can write
up inmates for infractions. >> thank you. >> but here in the honor dorm, fellow inmates police the hallways. >> if you see anyone violating, you give them a warning, tell them to stop doing it. if you see a direct violation, it's your option to give them a write-up. if they're found guilty of that write-up, they go before a panel. and if you lose so many points, you get removed from the dorm. >> i love construction work. i got a building here that i designed that i hope to build upon my release. god willing. you get out here, all that tension seems to gradually just dissipate. this is a blueprint of what i built. maybe do something positive with my life for a change. it gives you a different perspective on the things that you've done in your life. >> still, the warden runs a tight ship, even in honor dorm, and has noticed a recent increase in marijuana use. in his monthly meeting with the representatives from the dorm, he tackles this issue head-on. >> you can't tell me that the people in the dorm don't know who's using the dope or if
you're selling or pushing dope out here. you can't tell me that you don't know who's doing that. it hurts the overall image and process of the community when it comes up like that. >> who's coordinator on duty? today, we're heading into the faith dorm. there are some that have not made the grade, and i guess the one fellow we're going to talk to now is one who tested positive for trace elements, marijuana trace elements. do you know why you're moving out? it's that reefer you smoked. >> i don't smoke no reefer. >> you were around it. some know how to beat the test. they don't know how to distinguish the difference between those that beat and it those that are around it. so you're suffering the consequences. >> a single infraction is an automatic ticket back to the hectic atmosphere of general population. inmate laurence stall learned that lesson the hard way.
>> there was a guy. apparently he thought i had disrespected him somehow, and he asked me outside. as soon as we got out there, he swung on me. so we get into a little scuffle, wasn't nothing real big. but that's what caused me to get knocked -- thrown out of the honor dorm. that was a year ago this may. >> honor dorm material. >> honor dorm material. >> that's me. >> hopefully pretty soon i'll be going back. i'm on the top of the list now. >> without the possibility of parole, lawrence stall has nothing but time to reflect on the events that landed him in prison 26 years ago. >> it was a homicide/robbery that got me here. i had never done any pcp. i'm high, not even thinking about what happened. we go rob a place and then two people got killed. we picked them up, took them out to a wooded area, and they were killed. it's not really something i like to talk about a lot. and i've come to accept prison, you know, as my lot in life.
we got one coming in on that bed. >> with a bed freeing up, chaplain summers informs the man at the top of the list that it's his time to move back to honor dorm. >> the lost lamb. we're coming to get you, man. >> i feel good. >> glad to get out of here. glad to get back out in the honor dorm. >> you're coming back? >> i hope not. >> that looks like it. >> looks like i'm ready. >> you got my name. >> i didn't realize i had that much tension on me. you know, it was just like a weight that was lifted. >> for a guy serving life without parole, the honor dorm is as close to freedom as you'll ever get. >> where we want to start? my bible. got to get a shout-out at my bible. step outside at nighttime, which is something i couldn't do for years. there's a lot of little perks i mean most people take for granted, little bitty things we think a whole lot of. just standing under the stars for a minute. this is really a job. coming up on "lockup: extended stay" --
we meet one of the most infamous and violent inmates in holman. >> i go into these zones where i've stabbed, cut inmates, strangled inmates. i just snap and i go crazy. i turn murderous and dangerous. it's like i'm in commando mode or something. no sixth grader's ever sat with the eighth grade girls. but your jansport backpack is permission to park it wherever you please. hey. that's that new gear feeling. this week, filler paper and folders just one cent. office depot officemax. gear up for school. gear up for great.

breaking news. the st. louis police department reports shotted fired at a protest in ferguson, missouri, on the one-year anniversary of the december of michael brown, the unarmed teen shot and killed by a white police officer. a group of demonstrators had been squaring off with police in riot gear when shots rang out. it's not clear from what direction the shots came or whether anybody was injured. all this follows a weekend of peaceful protests to mark the anniversary. we'll continue to follow this story. more news later. now back to our programming.
which are the most violent and dangerous. steven parker is one of the most notorious. >> i'm in maximum security. i'm stuck in a lockup cell. they may not ever let me out of lockup because i have a tendency, every time i get out, i try to kill somebody. i go completely calm. i make up my mind what i'm going to do. i go into these zones where i turn into this cold-blooded. i don't know what causes it, other than just being depressed and feeling like i have nothing else to lose and nothing else to live for. i grew up pretty rough. my mother left when i was real young. i lived with my stepmother and my dad. and my stepmother, she was really hateful. she was kind of mean and abusive. i just wanted to kill her, and i
thought that would be what ended the pain and the problems that she caused. one morning, i woke up about 4:00 in the morning and drove to where they was living, my stepmother and my dad, and rang the doorbell. and when she answered the doorbell, i shot her at point-blank range. and then my dad -- my dad come around the corner on me, and i shot him three times. i've always regretted shooting my dad because i felt like i was close to my dad. it almost killed him, you know? my stepsister called the police on me and i surrendered to the police that morning. i felt like i was at the end of my rope and i did what i did. >> our crew first met steven parker more than a year earlier during our shooting of the original "lockup: holman." he was in ad-seg back then and considered very dangerous. >> steven parker is crazy. he's not a person that's very intelligent. >> it wouldn't take much to incite a riot or whatever. you know. you could take four officers hostage at the same time and it's going to domino. it's going to domino.
they don't have control. it's just a delusion. >> he's quite an individual. here a few weeks ago, he called me up to his cell. he was having a real problem with his next-door neighbor. in fact, he just told me, he said, if you don't move me or my next-door neighbor, i'm going to kill him. if steven was having -- if he was having these kind of thoughts or these kind of problems, the guy next door -- somebody needed to be moved. that's why we did it. again, steven's a big man and -- but i have to say in much a way, he's a big man in a little boy's -- with a little boy's mind in a lot of different ways. open l-38, please. >> once in prison, steven parker, whose friends call him the worm, became more violent.
>> stay away from him. we don't want him to have fun with the cameras on, anyway. >> he slit one inmate's jugular vein with a box cutter and nearly strangled another to death. >> this happened several times in prison, where i've stabbed and cut inmates and strangled inmates. >> worm! don't do it! >> i just snap and i go crazy. i turn murderous and dangerous. i'm not nervous at all. it's like i'm in commando mode or something. and i'm very deadly with it, too. it was one night, about 10:00, a guy come in, tried to take my cigarettes from me. he came in and snatched them off the bed and he called me a bitch. i let that brew on me for a while. i thought about it all night. about 2:00 in the morning, i went and stabbed him 18 times. >> deputy warden patterson, along with the other senior staff members, make their weekly rounds in administrative segregation.
>> this is a place of confinement for those men that need to be down here, be isolated from contact with the general population. through their behavior, through their disciplinary problems, or the fact they just simply can't live in population. >> they review each status to determine who is ready to return to general population. >> what would it take for me to get a transfer? >> what would it take for you to get a transfer? if you go anywhere, it will be down to just doing a request, maximum assignment. okay? >> we just completed our weekly segregation review board and now we would go into our deliberation about the status of the men being incarcerated down there. steven parker. he needs to stay where he is. he is a dangerous man. we did recently find a weapon in his cell.
he will do good and he will tell you he will do good and his behavior is good right now, but not so long ago, he came out and assaulted an officer. he's a big man, he's hard to control, he's a dangerous man, and he is appropriately assigned in that segregation cell at this point. >> he is dangerous. as far as my vote, i don't think he never need to be in a population setting. >> segregation is a place of confinement for men who you must separate from the general population. and steven parker is one of those guys that must be separated. we must keep him controlled at all times. >> i guess i'm going to go crazy. i don't know. i guess i'm going to spend the rest of my life in prison and keep doing the same things i've been doing. i don't know what else to do. until somebody kills me, i guess. i don't know. next on "lockup: extended stay" -- >> life on death row was a very traumatic experience.
death was definitely next. >> eight years on death row can make any inmate question his sanity. >> i feel confused, went through a mental stage where i like to lose my mind. which saves paper, which saves money. they have smart online tools, so you only pay for what's right for you, which saves money. they settle claims quickly, which saves time, which saves money. they drive an all-hybrid claims fleet, which saves gas, which saves money. they were born online, and built to save money, which means when they save, you save. because that's how it should work in the modern world. esurance. backed by allstate. click or call.

inmate over a pair of sneakers. he says a mixture of fear and anger fueled his attack. >> if you take something like shoes, they took shoes, i know who it is. the other guys in the block, they know i know who got it. so if i don't deal with it, then that's a weak spot on my point. so they say, okay, he's weak. we'll go back, we can steal all the rest of his stuff. and that's what's coming next, eventually. it's not my first stabbing, not the first time i've had stuff stolen. and probably not going to be the last time. it's what has to be done. >> since he's serving life without parole, it's unlikely he'll receive any additional time. the victim of the stabbing is recovering, but remains in ad-seg until the warden feels he's ready to return to general population. with no parole date in sight, terry moore feels he has nothing to lose. and so fear of breaking the rules isn't much of a deterrent for him. but hope is not lost for all inmates serving life without parole.
>> what did you do with the sunglasses you had the other day? >> i put in drops. >> what kind of drops? >> eye doctor. the eye doctor gave them to me. >> the culture has changed because i think people have more hope. what coincided with that was a couple of laws that changed. some of our life without parole inmates, when you serve life without parole and all your crimes were habitual offender, they were all nonviolent, then you had the opportunity to go back before the judge and have the sentence overturned. some of the life without parole guys, instead of being violent or having a no-care attitude, they really have hope that they'll get their case overturned and one more chance to go back outside. >> and the inmates serving life without parole aren't the only ones getting the second chance. mitch rutledge was on death row before his sentence was overturned. >> i came here in 1981. june 17 i came to death row. i did approximately a little -- eight years on death row. came off 1989. reversal from the alabama supreme court find the d.a. said
there's no such thing as life without parole and gave me a new sentencing hearing. the jury recommended life without parole. the judge went along with it. i'm guilty. there was a man, he was shot and robbed. >> by? >> by me. >> on december 23rd, 1980, rutledge and two friends carjacked a van from a 28-year-old man. after robbing him, rutledge then shot the man five times, killing him instantly. the victim's wallet contained $20. when rutledge arrived on death row at 22, the threat of execution pushed him to the edge. >> life on death row, to me, was a very traumatic experience. i stayed in the cell 23 hours a day. i felt lost, confused, devastated. and knowing that you're going to die, that they sent you there to die, it have an even more
vicious effect on your mentality and that death was definitely next. i went through a mental stage where i like to lost my mind. >> since coming off death row, mitch rutledge has taught himself to read and write and earned his ged. now he expresses himself through his writing. >> i consider myself a poet. but i wrote this because at this particular time, it was a friend of mine being executed, and i was deeply wounded by that. and i was deeply touched. "tonight, death has been called forward once again from the world it resides in to carry out the wishes of the state of alabama in the execution of another death row inmate. death all smiles tonight. it didn't have to hunt man down. it didn't have to catch man by surprise from a fatal gunshot, a stab, or while he lay in a deep sleep. no, tonight death is the hero.
a feast is being held in his honor. everything we all feel is being worshipped tonight. the evil is the evil man do." >> everybody inside. everybody inside. >> jeremiah jackson called death row home for ten years, but he's just caught a major break. >> today, lieutenant came to my door. he told me, jackson, call your lawyer. i just said a little prayer and i called my lawyer. he said, guess what? i'm off dead row. he said, yes, you is. he said congratulations. i said praise the lord.
