Imprisoned In The Parent Trap

, , , , | Related | June 18, 2017

(I’ve chosen to take Legal Studies as one of my Year 12 courses. As part of the course, we’re allowed to go to a local prison to meet some of the inmates and hear about their experiences with the criminal justice system. Since the bus to the prison leaves fairly early from school, my dad agrees to drive me to school.)

Dad: “Hey, [Radio Station] is having one of their contests on in five minutes!”

(He calls, and manages to get through to the station.)

Operator: “What are you doing up so early today?”

Dad: “I’m taking my daughter to prison!”

(Thanks, Dad. On the plus side, that particular statement DID get him on the radio.)

    Wait…is it weird for students to visit prisons/jails?
    That was a favored Field Trip destination for my school system. Especially in middle school. The other two “groups” in my grade got to go to places like a theater or park. My group got to visit the county prison.
    Prison was still more itneresting than the Senior Trip, which involved a local “park” (ball field with no balls, and playground for tiny kids) and soggy hotdogs. Nothing to do except sit on the grass for several hours. (Especially after we managed to break the merry-go-round.)

    …OP’s school sounds more interesting than mine.

    Field trip in fifth grade was to visit a local brewery. Still not sure if all the kids made it back from that.

        I didn’t just spring up out of the ground as a Merc with a Mouth. I don’t remember it very well since they haven’t showed any flashbacks in any movies yet, but yes, I went to school.

          Ah, of course! That definitely makes sense!

    I seem to recall going to Fremantle Prison. Which, for those who don’t know, is defunct.

    I went to Greystone once in a psychology college class.
