Wow. That's right down the road from me. This won't end well for the guards around here I can guarantee.

I'm sure it is like this and worse in the immigrant concentration camps.

This is a casebook example of why conflicts of interest aren't acceptable in the government.

Absolutely sickening. I think a lot of correctional facilities train their employees to be sociopaths.

It's a sickening environment. I don't think they literally train them to be sociopaths. But without proper training and education and attention they can easily become sociopaths. Being a guard and keeping your sanity is hard work. I was offered a really good job in the prisons teaching. I tried it out for a few months. I would not even do that for fear of what it would do to me. Much less be a guard.

I should have wrote a book.

Do tell. It seems like guards, even if they start out with the best intentions, or just looking for a check, eventually operate like the most powerful gang in prison.

This series has been extremely interesting. Honest takes from a guy that did 9 years in federal prison for armed robbery, interviewing people that went to state and fed prisons for a variety of reasons. To hell with Scared Straight. Just have kids watch this.

I have a friend that is a guard at the Sheriff's detention center. They stories he has a legendary.

One of his jobs was to open the mail and make sure the inmates are not getting nudes mailed to them so he would have to look to see if the photo was altered with a dry erase marker.

One of his last duties before heading to a new supervisor position was to supervise the visitor intake. One visitor had a cane and you had to check to see if was hollow. This man's was. It could be used to smuggle contraband or a weapon in, so he opened it. About 100 cockroaches poured out of the inside. They had to shut down the visiting area and call in fumigation.
