The rules and regs Raniere shall now keep in prison

toni natalie
20 years ago, Keith Raniere threatened Toni Natalie [above] that the next time he saw her she would be dead or in jail. Funny, how the smartest man in the world’s words were almost prophetic. He just had it mixed up. He is in jail and Toni, who is in NYC today, expects to see him in person again for the first time in 20 years. Needless to say Toni is not in jail [although the Vanguard tried pretty hard to get her there].
Keith Raniere is used to having his own way. But for now – and until he gets out of prison –  he will have little to nothing his way. He will now follow orders. He is not the Vanguard. He is Federal Prisoner # 57005-177.

From the prisoner’s handbook:


A general wake-up for all inmates is 6:00 a.m. It is the inmate’s responsibility
to participate in meals and work. Inmates who are assigned a job and do not report to
work are subject to discipline.

It is the inmate’s responsibility to check his cell immediately after being assigned there
and report all damages to the Unit Officer or Correctional Counselor. An inmate may be
held financially liable for any damage to his personal living area.

Each inmate is responsible for making his bed in accordance with posted regulations before work call (including weekends and holidays when he or she leaves the area). Each inmate is also responsible for sweeping and mopping his cell floor, removing trash, and ensuring it is clean and sanitary. Cardboard boxes and other paper containers are not permitted for storage. Due to their combustible nature, they become a fire hazard. Lockers must be neatly arranged inside and out, and all shelving must be neat and clean. Chairs are assigned to each cell, and will not be defaced or marked in any manner by the inmate.

For pretrial inmates, the same rules regarding sanitation apply; however, since most
inmates are in the housing unit daily, sanitation commences at 7:30 a.m., unless otherwise posted on the unit bulletin board. The sanitation expectations are posted on the unit bulletin board. Beds must be made by 7:30 a.m. Inmates may sleep on a made bed after 7:30 a.m.

The shower facilities are not private, but there is hot water. This is the opposite of what Raniere required of his slaves – which was to take a cold shower.

Toothpaste, toothbrushes, combs, razors, and soap for personal hygiene are issued by the
institution. Inmates may purchase name brand items through the Commissary.


At the risk of making light of prison rape – which is a true blot on this nation’s penal system – there is a joint showering and sex is common among prisoners. Some of it is unwanted.


Letters, Books, Photographs, Newspapers, and Magazines
An inmate will be limited in the number of letters, books, photographs, magazines, and
newspapers that can be stored in their designated storage space. Nothing is to be tacked,
stapled or scotch taped to any surface except to bulletin boards.

Ordinarily, photographs, particularly those of family and friends, are approved, since they represent meaningful ties to the community. A personal photograph is defined as a photograph intended for individual viewing, as opposed to a photograph published for commercial use.

Personal photographs may be stored or displayed in the housing units according to local
sanitation and housekeeping guidelines. Inmates may not retain Polaroid photos. Nude or sexually suggestive photos (individual prints or copies as opposed to those from
publications) present special concerns about personal safety, security, and good order,
particularly when the subject is an inmate’s relative, friend, or acquaintance or could
reasonably be perceived as such. For these reasons, an inmate may not be permitted to
retain, receive, or possess a personal photograph in which the subject is partially nude
or nude, or when the photograph depicts sexual acts such as intercourse, fellatio, or
sodomy. These materials will be returned to the sender upon receipt at the institution

{This indicates to me that Keith will not be able to possess any of the collateral he has coerced or tricked women into giving him.]

  • Now that Raniere is finally locked up, now we wait to see who else will be joining him in holding awaiting trial. One down and 10 – 20 to go.

    Do you think there is any time / room on the short bus to make a deal? Has anyone sold out their Master, yet?

    Here’s hoping that someone will wake up and spill the beans in order to get less punishment.

    • He will be petitioning for that along with his organic vegan diet, along with his Hooters pizza with hot sauce or whatever in hell he liked.

      I think we can all take joy in the fact that whatever kind of day we are having, Vantard’s say is far worse. And like Vantard says, he who has the most joy, wins.

  • He’s sitting in a holding cell with a bunch of new friends, all eating bologna sandwiches.

    9:00 AM – He arrived at the courthouse and was put into a holding cell with a bunch of other guys who have court proceedings today.
    12: 00 Noon – He’ll be given a brown paper bag that contains a bologna sandwich, a carton of milk, and an apple.
    1:55 PM – He’ll be taken upstairs to the courtroom.

  • J.T. Fetch, 5pm Anchor for @cbs6albany, is reporting live today on twitter:

    Thank you to commenter “J.T. Fetch says reporting live” for their April 11 comment on the “Raniere to be arraigned Friday” post.

  • Would still rather spend the rest of my life in fed lockup rather than spend the rest of my days with Clare “Two Bagger” Bronfman…

  • India just 6 minutes ago posted on her Instagram. A cookie sandwich. Everything seems fine in her world!!
