    I am new to this forum. I am a former Gunny with the USMC and I now work at Miami Correctional Facility in Indiana. I have never seen such a clusterfuck in all my life. My fellow staff have no backbone, they pander to the offenders and management is more concerned with lawsuits than officer security. The only was to make rank is to get beat down(every officer assaulted at he facility has been slingshot up the ranks)by offenders. When I get a decent officer, a stand-up guy, he/she gets disciplined and/or transferred to a bad assignment. It all about hug-a-thug. I am looking at other jobs right now.

    hey
    I work in your neighborhood but as an officer. It does seem that we do have to think more about the offenders rights... however.. when I have a problem person... seems they find cell three in DCJ pretty darn fast and have no more rights.

    I dont work there so I wouldnt know about inside the jails too much, but on the road there are a fair number of sgts who are liability jumpy...

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    How ironic. I watched Lockup on MSNBC the other night and it was about your facility. Based on what I saw and heard, I have no doubt you are absolutely correct. Of course, the producers won't show that side of the story, but if one pays close enough attention, one gets a good idea that things are not as they seem. Sorry to know you are having to work under these conditions. Have you considered other facilities or is this not a possibility? Either way, watch your back and stay safe.

    Fixed that, Ducks. Moved to Introduce yourself so everyone can get to know Gunny while answering his scenario. Welcome to LEF, Gunny. So glad you could be here.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.

    Welcome!

    Sounds like you need to get out of there before it gets to you. Do you have Union protection?
