I spent more years in those moutains then I care to rememberbut unless things have changed drastically the inmate must have really screwed up to get served by two shifts IMO. And yes in the ten years I was there in the old jail I got my clocked cleaned at least two times and I did deserve it

And you thought this new secretary had the backs of the Correctional Officers. Inmates still can assault staff without at will. I am sure that these Officers will suffer and then be awarded their jobs back with back pay. Maybe it is time for a new secretary, one that has actually worked a TIER.

Why don't you idiots learn the real story before mouthing off. They hit those inmates while they were handcuffed all over one of them mouthing off. Oh yeah he deserved getting his jaw broken for that. Those guards at RCI are nothing but a bunch of punks that get off on ordering people around. They do what they want there and get away with it. It's time someone did something about it.

RCI officers are still at it. On segregation there were 2 inmates that were beefing so while they had one cuffed they popped the door and let the other stab the inmate multiple times. In addition those cowards are planting contraband and lying on tickets to pursue further criminal charges against inmates already housed. I think some undercover officers should be planted to bring all Roxbury dirt to light!

I'm a guard at RCI. I'm neither a punk nor someone who gets off on telling the inmates what to do. Next time no what your talking about before you speak ignorance.

Better yet keep your butts out of jail and you wouldn't have to deal with it in the first place. Tired of paying tax payers money to keep idiots in jail that can't act right in the first place .

not all officers are without honor. we want these rapest, murderers and drug deals locked up to keep us all safe but dont let anything bad happen to them? give me a break! act right and dont get locked up theres a thought. i dont think a badge gives you a right to act like an inmate youself but come on we arent talking about girlscouts here. these men and women these officers go into the lions den everyday to the place we put all these people who make us feel unsafe. lets not forget about the officers killed by these poor defenseless inmates too. it makes me sick to be honest

During my stay (1994-'96) at RCI I discovered a simple rule that applies outside or in ... if you give respect you get respect ... I had no beef with the CO's there ... I wouldn't like to have their jobs.
