Inmate-to-Convict Code Breaker – Territorial Markings Annotated

The object was to see what kind of “gang” markings the Bandidos and their support clubs and the Cossacks and their supporters would inscribe on the freshly painted walls.

But there is yet another prison-industrial complex technique in play in McLennan County, and many of the other 254 Texas Counties.

It’s called the Pre-trial Intervention Program, and it’s a lock-solid lead pipe cinch folks will peep and hide, roll and ride their way out the lock box if given half a chance.

    How did they know a month earlier that “Bandidos” & “Cossacks” would be in there?
