Background: USP Coleman 2 is part of the Coleman Federal Correctional Complex (FCC). According to writings from former prisoner Nate A. Lindell, USP Coleman 2 was “a so-called special-needs prison — a ‘safe’ facility where informants, former cops, ex-gang members, check-ins (prisoners who intentionally put themselves in solitary confinement to be safe), homosexuals, and sex offenders can all, supposedly, walk the Yard freely.”
