Dibujosi Faciles, Lakeland Correctional Facility, Texas Jail are a disgrace
Dibuijas Faciles and the Lakeland Jail in Texas have been a disgrace, according to the owner of the facilities.
“It is disgusting that the government would be able to have a facility with a name like Dibulios,” said Sushant Sankar, a father of two who runs the rehabilitation facility at the Lakelawn Correctional Facility.
“They can’t even do it with the same facility.”
Sankar was talking about the facility that is named after him.
“Dibuija is an extremely dangerous name for any facility,” he said.
“I have worked in jails for over 40 years, and I know that if a facility is not named after someone, it’s not going to work,” Sankur said.
“The people who have been there for so long, they have had the best facilities.”
A former corrections officer, Sankartha Sankaran has been running the rehabilitation centre since it opened in 2011.
He said he was in the process of selling his facility to another company when he learned about Dibujas Facile and Lakelays Correctional Facility in 2014.
“There are two other facilities that were being used, and that was Dibunios and Lakeland,” he told The Hindu.
“I was the owner and had no idea that this facility was going to be called Dibutios and it would be the same as the one I have.
I thought this was a joke, a joke of sorts.
It was the worst thing I had ever seen.”
“It’s just so offensive that you would be trying to put your name on something that is going to hurt somebody, to hurt a community.
It’s like a slap in the face to people who are incarcerated,” he added.
According to the Lake Land Correctional Facility website, it was established in 1959 to provide rehabilitation services to people convicted of crimes.
In a written statement to The Hindu, the facility said it was aware of the name change and that it was “reviewing its operations”.
“The facility was named for the former correctional officer who was the head of the facility,” the statement said.
The facility is also known as the Prisoner of God’s Paradise, the Jail of Heaven, the Lake of Hell, the Hellfire Pit, and the Devil’s Camp.
Sakti, the prison service provider, said it did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
It is not the first time a facility named after a convicted criminal has come under fire.
The Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) in 2010 renamed a prison in Virginia as the D.C. Correctional Facility after the late John Wayne Gacy, the serial killer who was eventually convicted of killing at least 27 people.
A prison in Georgia, known as Camp Perry, was also renamed in 2006.
