Woman who met Allison Mack at MDC describes life there

[Editor’s note: This comes from a woman who evidently met Allison Mack during the four days Mack spent at MDC in April 2018, between the time she was arrested and when she made bail.]

Frank, I really relate to you and have been following your articles. I too got mixed up with a narcissistic psychopath who ran something similar to a cult. He and his flying monkeys set out to silence and destroy me and succeeded in having me arrested and battering me with the legal system to cover up their own corrupt activities.

As fate would have it, I was actually locked up in MDC at the same time Allison Mack was arrested and brought to MDC and I got to meet and speak to her.

This is why I have been following your writing, as I was curious, after meeting Allison, how a girl like her could get so mixed up with a cult leader. I often wonder if perhaps I landed at MDC for similar reasons as Allison because I too got mixed up with a narcissistic psychopath who had no regard for anyone but himself.

My case was minor and different than Allison’s charges. I did not have to serve much time, a very small stint compared to what Allison is facing.

I was able to still have a nice life at MDC because I made wonderful friendships and met women from all walks of life who had committed a vast array of crimes I will be very sure and careful with my freedom not to commit, lest risk landing in prison again. No thanks, never again.

The man in my case actually ended up committing suicide while I was locked up. Unfortunately, he was famous and pathological enough to escape prosecution, but he did not escape his own undoing and eventual self-destruction.

At MDC, I was a good girl, a model, well-behaved prisoner so I never took a trip to the SHU, but the girls that got sent down there told me how awful, smelly and cold it was.

If what Keith did to all these women is anything similar to what I survived with the vainglorious narcissist in my case, then Keith’s karma has come upon him, so it seems, with his redundant, captive, rat-caged life at MDC.

There are some similarities between Allison and myself. The narcissistic abuse, brainwashing, expectation of loyalty and unwavering devotion, which is how I was groomed and conditioned for with my narcissist.

At MDC, I was told, it was much worse on the men’s side due to gang members.  We went on lockdown several times while I was at MDC because fights between rival gangs often erupted and they would stab each other. I’m surprised Keith hasn’t gotten stabbed by an MS-13 Mexican gang member for what he did to those Mexican girls.

If they decide he can’t return to general population, they might move him over to Metropolitan Correctional Center [MCC] in Manhattan.  I saw that happen a lot when fights broke, out, sometimes they would ship prisoners over to MCC to completely separate people who fought.

I would write lengthy articles about my own experiences in what I was mixed up in, but the narcissist’s family has threatened to sue me if I speak out and reveal all the gory details of what really happened and why the man in my case committed suicide.

I wonder how I may share my story without getting sued or further prosecuted.  The #metoo movement perhaps?

The man in my case is more famous than the dinky Vanguard who’s now getting his “Crybaby Jane” ass kicked by the hardcore thugs at MDC.  Keith Manson, that shit is funny!!

Why in the hell would Allison give up her career and assets to this inflatable douche?? The cognitive dissonance must have been astounding.


[Editor’s note: Anonymous you can feel free to tell your true story on Frank Report about your famous narcissist who committed suicide. I’m pretty sure you will not be sued. Perhaps it needs to be told for the benefit of others.]

  • Well let’s just look at it this way when he starts off by not telling anybody who he is the story is pretty much fabricated right from the start there’s no proof of anything he say. it doesn’t really talk about Allison at all people are just writing stuff the right stuff they figure if they rated about her or put her name in there they’re going to get a lot more people to read it, you know what’s strange how every time somebody writes one of these whole bunch of people answer and nobody really knows what’s going on hail the judge doesn’t even know what’s going on let’s just all week to the end and see what happens if she’ll get her just do if she’s guilty or maybe she’ll get sent to mental institution you never know

  • Since we in the US are all being gaslit by a narcissist who threatens silence with lawsuits, I think we can all benefit from understanding how someone like you or Allison could come under such a spell. We can also use to understand how you managed to get away. Sorry you had to experience it so personally – it must be devastating still.

  • The writer can not be sued successfully…

    …. However, as my wife always points out to me, and many members of the Frank Report can attest, you can still be brought to court and dragged through the mud even though the lawsuit has no merit.

    Submit your article anonymously, label it allegedly, and you will be fine.

    • I was sued 13 years ago. The case had no legal merit. It took 3 court appearances until the case was dismissed. I could not bring a counter suit and was unable to get my out of pocket legal expenses paid by the other side. In summary it can be a major ball buster… even a frivolous lawsuit.

    • Good advice, NiceGuy, totally agree. Also add a lot of “It was my experience/expression/belief that…” to your sentences, too.

  • So was Allison in denial? Was she sad? Does she understand how serious the charges are?

    More deets plz

    • I’m the woman who met Allison at MDC. Allison seemed a little sad and like she was in shock, but she was very nice and friendly to her fellow prisoners. (The food at MDC absolutely sucks by the way, it’s seldom cooked properly and they always give us this brittle rice that is hard enough to break your teeth.)

      I didn’t immediately recognize Allison, I just remember walking out onto the rec deck and seeing this tiny blond woman sitting on a gym mat, squashed in the corner. I thought she looked familiar, but I didn’t know why. When I went back to my bunk, one of my friends announced, “The Smallville actress is here!” And then it clicked and I said, “Oh that’s why she looked so familiar to me, I used to watch that show all the time!”

      Someone had loaned Allison a grey swearshit and it was much too big for her so her tiny body was swimming in it. I don’t think anyone really discussed the details of her case with her, but we were watching it unfold on the news while she was there. When she made bail, she was blowing kisses to all of us as the guards escorted her away. If a women’s empowerment group is truly what she is seeking, prison is actually an unexpected place to find it.

    • Surely in denial, but for some reason my intiucion tells me that the problem is his family that maybe he is not giving his best effort, you may be believing the lies that clear bear solved everything

  • Keep in mind anybody can sue anybody else for any reason or no reason at all. However, I doubt the family will have standing if you write about a dead man.
