    They may be doing updates since they were behind due to the holidays.

    Yeap, when I ordered the care package they did have a hygiene pack for women that had deodorant so I'm not sure why they don't have it for men and toothpaste is just ridiculous that they don't have any.

    I just tried to access the site and got a message it's down for maintenance.

    Yes, a shortage of toothpaste and deodorant is ridiculous. My son said they got deodorant in the last time he went to commissary but they were limiting them to one.

    I talked to my husband tonight and he asked me about the deodorant. Told him it was a shortage throughout all TDC. Asked him about the toothpaste and he said he was glad he stocked up earlier. They also just got hot water back yesterday after having none since December 21st! Only 2 of the 8 sinks are working and only 3 of the urinals are for 54 guys! It's crazy what they have to deal with....not to mention no real heat or a/c in the summer.

    I can't imagine that!! My husband says hot water, but I don't know how hot it really is...for all I know it's more lukewarm...lol! But he did say hot so who knows! I wish they would treat them better than they do, I know they are where they are but I didn't think that meant treat them worse than an animal!

    Agreed! They have enough with being in there away from their families..... But that's not cruelty in their eyes

    I am going to chime in on this thread because we all know the warm fuzzys I get when we discuss TDC...LOl...We here in our great state have more laws giving animals better treatment than we do inmates...The last unit was called the dogpound for very good reason. That is the nice part of my part in this thread I cant write any more for fear of chavo booting me off...LOL

    Ok so I just got off the website and once again NO TOOTHPASTE smh TDCJ has to get it together. I don't understand why there is a shortage in the first place when they know they have millions of inmates that's just ridiculous. Also alot of the the foods are not on there anymore I'm to the point were I'm saying forget the website I just rather send him the money and let him purchase his own items.

    I agree, we are their advocates and their voice. I suggest we find out who to write about such things (flood them with letters) and get really involved in getting things corrected. As someone else said, there are laws about treating animals better than inmates.

    I was thinking the same thing. I ordered $40 worth of stuff . There wasn't much sweets or any juices. My husband doesn't drink sodas or eat candy. But he does love cakes and stuff and there was none. I couldn't believe there was no toothpaste or deodorant. I can't believe a system that makes money off inmates can't even keep simple necessities in stock. I was so mad.

    It was working earlier this evening, it goes down every evening from 9pm - 4am - but I have noticed it usually goes down a little earlier than 9pm, so that could be why you weren't able to access it - I hope this helps

    Thanks, in which region or unit was it possible. Yesterday it still wasn't possible, last time I heard of him , he said they were on lockdown for 4 weeks, and he passed classification and they took his file along to Huntsville and he's waitinf for the decision may be he'll be shipped to another unit. Thanks for informing me.
    I see that in region 1 it is possible but the people I know from region 2 and 3, still not yet, those who received a care package last period the first of 2013.

    Thanks, in which unit was it possible, for me it should go to Telford Unit, but the last I heard it was for one month on lockdown.
    I checked some other people I know and I see if they received a care package the first period, they couldn't yet receive one either.

    Not sure about the region... it is Robertson in Abilene...

    i ordered some stuff from ecomm and when he went to pick it up they changed what i ordered him . they didnt have peanutbutter,sardines, refried beans, or vanilla cookies. i was pissed they gave him a whole bunch of soup. this is at the lindsey unit in jacksboro. the lady told me to order again on friday before 1 pm because they are getting a new shippment of supplies on monday and that they should have the stuff then. apparently they only get shipments every 2 weeks. wit them only being fed twice on the weekend their actual food vending machines were empty so all they had was junk food to snack on. way unhealty!. hopefully he will get his peanut butter....we should find out soon for sure when his early release is. right now its looing like the first week of july or last week in june. which would be nice considering my birthday is the 2nd week in july.
    july 3rd cant come fast enough
