An anonymous email send to the Detroit Free press say, yes.
In an email send to the Detroit Free Press, the writer said that the Ex-Mayor of Detroit is receiving special treatment. He was said to have been given a cell with air conditioning and has been allowed to make weekly telephone calls.
The warden, Warden Heidi Washington, who knew Kilpatrick when they both worked at the state Capitol, said she wants the former Detroit mayor isolated “for management reasons.”
“We want things to be run with as little disruption as possible,” Washington said. Because of Kilpatrick's notoriety, “it makes things run more efficiently, more calmly and more smoothly to keep him separated.”
Kilpatrick will housed in Jackson’s Charles Egeler Reception and Center, the center normally is reserved for prisoners with medical conditions -- another one to two weeks before he is assigned to a regular Michigan prison, Washington said.
Washington responded to complaints from corrections officer who said guards at the Jackson prison were in “an uproar” because Washington was treating Kilpatrick "like a rock star.
Washington said Kilpatrick's only visitors have been attorneys, and prison officials can't deny attorney visits. Kilpatrick on Thursday got his personal identification number that lets him make phone calls.
Washington said on the night Kilpatrick arrived at the prison he asked to make a phone call home and was told, no. Kilpatrick will be in custody when he turns 40 on Tuesday and his supporters plan to celebrate by holding a prayer rally in Detroit. Kilpatrick's mother, U.S. Rep. Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick D-Mich., organized the June 8 event at the Historic Little Baptist Church on Woodward Avenue in Detroit.
The event will run from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. . and Minister and the pastor of the church, the Rev. Jim Holley, will make appearances.
Cheeks Kilpatrick said the event will not involve politics or fund-raising, but it will be about prayer.
