Skip to comments.Gosnell in Solitary Confinement: Prisoners “Frown On Snipping Babies”
Posted on 05/01/2013 5:08:41 PM PDT by Morgana
Kermit Gosnell has been in jail since his January 2011 arrest after authorities raided his abortion clinic.
The jury in the Gosnell murder trial is expected to deliver a verdict soon, and the abortion doctor is housed at the Curran-Fromhold Correctional Facility.
He is currently in solitary confinement pending the verdict and his expected sentencing. Thats because, according to one local reporter in Philadelphia, fellow prisoners dont take his crimes of killing babies in infanticides too kindly.
Rapists, child abusers, gang snitchers and the like are normally viewed as the lowest rank of prisoner by fellow inmates. They are often confined to solitary or placed in SNY, or the Sensitive Needs Yard, with other fellow prisoners who are at risk for violence if allowed to reside in the general population.
Should Gosnell be convicted and face a prison term, he would likely remain in solitary or in a sensitive needs population for the duration of his time in prison term.
Curran-Fromhold Correctional Facility is named in honor of Warden Patrick N. Curran and Deputy Warden Robert F. Fromhold, who were murdered at Holmesburg Prison on May 31, 1973. They are the only Pennsylvania corrections system officials known to have been killed in the line of duty.
Opening in 1995, the Curran-Fromhold Correctional Facility (CFCF) is the largest such facility in the state. It consists of four housing buildings and an administration/ core building. Each building has eight housing units, or pods, four on each floor.
Each pod consists of 32 cells, divided into two tiers, organized around a common living and dining area, the corrections web site indicates. Inmates housed on each pod have access to indoor and outdoor recreation, medical triage, law library, and program areas.
The core building includes the administrative offices for the Commissioner of Prisons, central administrative staff, the warden, and facility staff, it continues. Facilities for intake and reception, along with industrial shops, educational classrooms, and program areas, also are included in the core building. A bail commissioner, court staff, and public defenders are on site, and lineups are conducted at CFCF.
Typically, prisoners in solitary confinement, sometimes called the SHU or the Segregated Housing Unit, are confined to their cells for a 23-hour per day period, with one hour of supervised recreation done in a secure area by themselves. Prisoners in solitary are usually denied interaction with fellow prisoners that occurs in the general population yards.
CFCF serves as a 24-hour intake center for adult males, and almost 30,000 males are processed through the facility´s receiving room on an annual basis. All new inmates undergo an admissions and diagnostics process, which includes classification; orientation; medical examination; issuance of an inmate handbook, clothing, and personal care items; and social service assessment, the web site says.
I know you are NOT surprised.
Release him to the general prisoner population and let him get Dahmer’d.. Or Dorner’d.
Even hardened convicts have more morals than this guy.
NO!!! It’s ok as long as Republicans get votes!!! Conservatives said so a couple months back. We have to moderate!!!
Of course a couple got the Zot...
I’ll bet he’s pissed that he’s in jail after doing women’s health so much good all these years. And Obambi, the heathen muslim that he is will surely pardon this slime-ball before he leaves our White House (IF he leaves our White House).
I think there’s a good chance that, if convicted of anything, it’ll be manslaughter. Anything higher than that will be a judicial verdict affirming the inhumanity that we’ve had in abortuaries these past 40 years.
Even hardened convicts have more morals than Obama.
That won't matter much.

Why are my tax dollars being wasted on his solitary confinement?
You have admit even hard core criminals has “a code” here Morgana LOL!
They not look kindly on this dude LOL!
Because we want him to live long enough to be found guilty. A guilty verdict in a trial such as this will set a precedence on future cases.
I wasn’t being literal. Then again ...
And it shows exactly what we are dealing with in DC - in Obama, Reid, Pelosi and all that ilk who are pro abortion. Common sense knows killing the defenseless is wrong but only evil relishes in killing them. "For the thief has come to kill, to rob and to destroy."
I hope someone kills Gosnell... violently and painfully.
BTTT your every word.
The main thing my dad always said to keep safe was to allow them to constantly engage in contraband schemes which included booze, weed, and downers. (and chicken for some reason). If they kept busy sneakin all that stuff in and around, they had purpose.
Absolutely no speed, uppers, meth, crack, cocaine, pcp, etc.........
But if I saw Gosnell getting lifted by a giant black man and having his spine torn out with rusty shears, I'd look the other way. Exactly what those babies felt...
