Had my first ones yesterday. BOY! LONG DAY! LOL! Started at 8:30 am and
I got done at 7pm.
Did 57 inmates. I will say, glad I have the amp thing as I used my extension wire and
placed it right in front of the TV where the video comes from. All they use
are the speakers from the TV for the inmates. After I did that, I could
hear them MUCH better. The room seems similar to ceilings that
can suck up the sound.
I will say, I looked at the inmates a LOT more, lol. I really never made
eye contact with them before. It is kind of creepy tho when the inmate is
sitting there 'looking' at you thru the TV until the Commish starts talking.
It does move along faster, as they mute the sound and the Commish give their
decision while the next inmate is brought in and waits.
The CR is really not shown to the inmate on the video. You can see what the
inmate sees, as there is a tiny box in the bottom corner of the screen of
'our' room. I like that they don't look at me now, lol. Dan used to pick
on me that the inmate will be 'dreaming' of you tonight, as you look nice.
Ok, finishing my other Boards then have to work on these! I was SO stiff
from sitting all day! Felt like I ran for miles, even tho we sat, lol. Had
an inmate who the original Kojak 'movie' was based on....the criminal, not
Kojak...he was an odd duck.
