    Shane made it exactly six minutes and 30 seconds before he started taunting the ghosts. I think we can be proud of him for that

    I don’t understand why you guys are being so polite to ghosts that in habit a prison. Clearly they don’t need you to be “friendly” unless you’re trying to reach out to Casper 🤷🏻‍♀️ They are criminals I think they can handle it but more rough-and-tumble. Or am I just encouraging something?

  • Julia Leonard

    This episode was so well done like props to Ryan for enduring that room and being able to read himself legit saying "I think I'm gonna black out on this moment"

    What's sad about John is that he was put in jail most likely for being gay. Crimes against nature would often be described as "sodomy", and many people in older times got imprisoned or sent to asylums for expressing homosexuality/transgender identities.
    That would kinda explain why he wasn't popular with any of the prisoners as well. It wasn't a very open minded time.

    i visited the yuma prison as a class trip and as a redhead i got a little curious when the girl showing us around the prison said, “oh, pearl doesn’t like the color red” (a couple guys in my class were all wearing red) and i walked away a bit to look at something and i felt someone grab my hand and squeeze. no one was around me. i promptly sprinted away from pearl and her little hangout area.
