We have a local prison in our area, and living in a small town this can only mean one thing; everyone, and I mean everyone, works for the prison. And boy do they leave with some farfetched stories!
Apparently, they have their own version of the cough test for inmates which do not include checking for hernias in the least.
I suppose that's because so many things are restricted with inmates, that they sometimes feel the need to hide what they know will be taken if found.
And, it would appear that they hide these things really well. I don’t want to think about some of the things that they do, but apparently one very common method is to actually insert objects into the rectum.
So, when officers go in to search cells, they are often also required to conduct strip searches that include the squat and cough procedure.
If there is anything hidden in this way, some or all of the object will be visible as a result of this test.
