Ya know correctional officers do a very hard job. If you ask any police/sheriff if they would work down in the pods they will tell you VERY FAST not no but Hail NO.
Yes part of the "experiment" is correct BUT to paint with such a wide brush only puts co's under more stress and negitive sterotype.
If you want to "call attention" to the problems of working in a prison how about working a week in one. Hail depending on the week you could only work 3 days. At the most it will be 4 unless you want to work Over time. Most shifts are 12 hours but really come out to 13.5-15.
You will have to deal with drug addicts who are either high or coming down looking for their next fix...YES there are drugs in prison. So have issues with dealing with anger...LOL they want to do what they want WHEN THEY want to NOT when it is schedualed or if they are even allowed. You can deal with drunks who can and do get poisoned and your the one who has to do cpr .....have you ever seen someone who dies/ dying from drug or achohol poisoning? They foam at the mouth and have convoltions. You had also better have atleast 2 other officers watching your back or you will end up laying next to the inmate.
Now you have to deal with the public who thinks your nothing more than a hired thug who takes great delight in bullying misunderstood young men.
For all the officers out there who keep these convicted felons where they belong and YOU safe do a bit more checking and talk to a few CO's who have walked the runs and keep going back to keep your family safe.
