    You can tell that short white cop has a Napolean complex. Laughably short while constantly trying to maintain this facade of a stone cold killer. Plus he looks like he juices (wouldn’t be entirely surprised. My uncle is a cop and uses anabolic steroids (illegal btw) but doesn’t see the issue because he doesn’t “consider it a drug”)

    I have had loved ones in prisons over the years. The CO’s are either offensive or defensive, just don’t bring attention to yourself and do your time. But remember there is some prisoners who you would never want on the streets near your loved ones, and these officers keep them behind bars.

    A CO is a dude who wants to be a cop but is too stupid to pass the test.

    Why do clowns like that think that anyone owes them respect? Especially losers in prison. Listen, if you are a punk, gang punk, convict, I owe you nothing. Respect is an earned trait. Not given.

    When I first started the job I don’t think I made mistakes such as these. That’s why when you’re training they tell you to say no and if you don’t know, ask a supervisor to see if something is okay and then give what they need if it is okay. But sometimes the inmates will tell you how things go if they know you’re new and they notice you’re firm, fair, and consistent.

    Why would it be embarrassing for an inmate to tell you how to do your job ???? Their are some really smart ppl inside those walls......that's the problem with these cos......they look at inmates as subhuman or less than them. Show respect and you'll get respect.
