Eric’s list: Ways the adx is different from SHU

Ways ADX is different from SHU:

1. 2 doors

2. No cell-to-cell contact

3. TV

4. Books

5. You ‘program’ in your cell

6. Rec is totally by yourself—indoor and outdoor

7. Bunk is made of concrete

8. Desk is made of concrete

9. Every door is 100% electronic

10. Every man is 2-man hold

11. Guards have batons in hand

12. No screaming or rapping-thank god

13. No one is ever coming and going, in the SHU people are constantly coming back with news or transferring, everyone is stationary here

14. We can wear sweatpants and shoes

15. We have to slide ‘cop-outs’ under the outside door. Never hand to hand.

16. No standing count ever

17. I control my lights

18. Guards drop off trays—if I don’t want I don’t have to say or interact in any way with them

19. I have all my sheets, blankets, and laundry. Tues and Thurs are laundry day

20. Often feel dizzy in these cells

21. Campers do laundry, canteen, and make our food

22. No radios

23. Hella coffee

24. Entire prison is on the same status, mostly

25. Heard absolutely zero shit talk or antagonism from staff – yet

26. It’s so quiet, eerily so
