Not saying anything against anyone, but claiming a corrections officer is "not confrontational and has never been in a fight" sounds weird. The entire job is confrontation and my uncle was a corrections officer for 2 years and had about a dozen fights with inmates.

You can get into fights and be non confrontational.Working corrections you can be calm and show respectful demeanor to inmates.Butyes fights are going to happen that cannot be helped.I think the isster was just talking from shock.If you don't work corrections it really is hard to grasp what goes on.Watching Lock Up Raw or Jail dos not cut it.What is amazing is the last killing happened in CA which has huge fed jails.This took place in a small PA town.

I have long thought that prisoners have way too many "rights" and freedoms. If a prisoner was a true prisoner and was stripped of the right to have access to things that can be used to make a weapon then stuff like this wouldn't happen.

She probably did, but really, it can't be true. That line of work is confrontational, there's really no way around it.

Well I have done it for 18 years and yes it can be confrotational.Let's not lose focus on a young man who lost his life to a criminal.And now after a short pit stop will be flying out to Colorados maimum facility til trial.This guy should get the death penalty he was a criminal who comitted yet another criminal act.
