I have recently  been released from TDCJ, and after working for them for four years upon my release the good time they gave me for working was taken away from me. I did nothing wrong for them to take what I worked for away. Its crazy how  TDCJ can house their inmates for years and give them this fake good time and work time that means absolutely nothing. What's the point in  giving us some thing when it means nothing it is cruel and inhumane.

The law says that prisoners have no constitutional Right to be paid for working while in Prison, but  the law also says that people are sent to prison to be separated from society as punishment for their crimes,  they are not to be sent to prison to have further punishment enforced upon them by inhumane treatment. To give an inmate good time for following rules and doing what is expected of him, then giving him work time for doing a good job working for them, then taking it away from him for no reason,  is for sure inhumane treatment. While it maybe true prisoners have no constitutional right to be paid for their work while in prison, if the State does decide to give them what ever for their good time and work time while in prison and the inmate earns it by doing what is expected of him it belongs to him, and the state should have to show just cause for taking it away from the inmate. Every person in TDCJ that earns good time and work time is effected by this corrupted way TDCJ runs their prisons.

I truly believe you break the law you have to pay the price. I also truly believe when you work for some thing and you are paid for that work it is yours and you are entitled to Due Process before it can be taken away from you.
