    I work at a prison

    I work at a prison and we are getting many inmates who dont speak english and dont want to.I notice I tend to have more respect from them when I speak Russian with them.can I have some help with phrases, I know these sound harsh but I want them to sound as plite as possible.amongst inmates respect is given and it is showen when earned.

    Go home\davayete payedete pishkom k sebe domoy?
    Stand up
    Sit please
    Count time
    can you do this for me please?
    vi mozhete dilete dla menya (I feel my grammar on this one is wrong)
    line up facing left/right
    please be quite
    I will respect you if you respect me.
    against the wall
    I need you to leave your room, shake down
    what do you have?\shto u vas? kotory u vas?
    go to sleep, lights out
    where did you get this?
    church is over there\church tom?
    do you need to see the doctor?\vam nozhno u vidiete vash doktor?
    be good\budete horosho?
    walk on the right\pyety(hodete) pishkom na prava
    do you have your property sheet?
    Whats going on here?
    Im not going to give you anything.\ya ne seberius vas shto-nybudt\ya nechivo diat vam?

    thats all for now sorry its kind of long and its late sorry for any typos, I use these phrases every day at my job.No the Russians dont give me any trouble. I just it would be better to tell them in thier own language.I know it sounds weak but, I notice asking someone instead of telling them, gets me much further in life. from these things I have earned respect from most of my "good reports"

    Thankyou, ваш друг Крист

    Фразы слишком вежливые для разговора с заключенными.

    Фи, как некультурно.
    Правильно говорить:
    "А не кажется ли вам, деточка, что ваше место около параши?".

    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    "Фразы слишком вежливые для разговора с заключенными."
    I dont want to look like I'm friends, because that'll cost me my job.

    "well its good to know if i ever go to prison i'll have company!"
    you might like minimum American prisons think, unlimited cable unlimited food health care,a place to sleep, you re taken care of .its sad at prisons theyre so many rights that protect prisoners.some prisons say you cant touch an Inmate cause that constitutes as assualt-we get many people from very por countries such as Mexico and some inmates like it, caue in mexico they have nothing.

    This is sad but true we have a guy and is running an American bussiness outside of prison.most of the guys get send there for drugs or beind illegal or some sort of felony, and when they get to prison they meet "contacts" in which they make thier drug better and quicker for the next time they come to America.-most of which are mexicans cause its easy to get over. we had a guy deported and he came back in an hour of his deportation.
    "Russian fellas, aren't you helping an enemy screw here?"
    No, as long ad I dont violate the ruels, give them stuff help them and keep in mind that these arent my friends and can't be as long as I work in this job. I have inmates that work for me, saddly its made me lazier than heck,but I always show respect for it. you'll come to find most prisoners are not the "hardcore" ones you see in prison. most are immature or have problems (need help)or cry a lot cause of not having family.

    Thank you all for your posts

    Man, your typing sucks! Haven't you heard of Spellcheck? I mean really, there are Russians trying to read that stuff!

    PS The reason that there are so many soft types in prison now is because of all the ridiculous "victimless crime" laws in USA. And what about all the smaller crimes that have been reclassified as "felonies" now? Why hell, it is even a "misdemeanor" to be in the park after sunset here!

    Думаю что с этими вариантами что-то не то...

    А можем ли мы их так перевести?
    -ведите себя хорошо=be good
    -идите по правой стороне=walk on the right (not to the right)
    -Что за шум?!=What's going on here? (Мой вариант) или "Что здесь происходит?"

    I think Wowik's traslation is fine, though I'd not said Count time\Смотрите за временем. The Truth would be следите за временем.
    Я так думаю.

    Judging by your statement, I am sure your solution to the middle east involves nuclear weapons ?
