Pistorius is reportedly in shock and cried himself to sleep on his first night in the jail. He has been under strict supervision since arriving (Oct. 21) in case of an emergency. He was briefly introduced to the other nine inmates on the hospital wing. His routine involves a wakeup call at 5:30am, breakfast at 7 a.m., lunch at noon and dinner at 4 p.m. President of the South African Prisoners’ Organisation for Human Rights, Golden Miles Bhudu:
It’s no picnic. Once the doors shut that’s it. Other than a little grill bar window next to the cell door, through which to talk, there’s no other way of communicating at night. When you talk from your cell you have to scream. For people to have heard him crying, it would have been very loud.
