it still doesn't take away from the fact that if u put yourself in the position to go to jail then it's your fault.
Agreed! Although I doubt the abuse is truly happening as described on "Flopix". Most of these cases are loser convicts trying to scheme and scam with bogus charges. I agree with your premise though that if you decide to break the law often enough and subsequently get pinched then you pretty much got it comin.

Regional jail policy has changed in some of the recent incidents (use of pepper spray, and sexual abuse of female inmates), so the regional jail is aware that illegal activities are occurring among the guards against inmates.

Cops and guards are expected to put up with verbal abuse, it is only when an criminal or inmate attempts physical contact that they can use force.

These guards are beating the inmate first and asking questions later. Many of these people are awaiting trial and have not been convicted. In the U.S., we follow a "presumption of innocence until proven guilty." Any intelligent individual would understand that to be the case.

One inmate was beaten by three guards because she revealed that one of the guards used to smoke crack cocaine.

This is the kind of situations the state gets in when they pay guards very little, the guards have little education (typical authority goes to their head), and the guards have a code of silence where the truth is suppressed.

first of all they should not beat anyone...maybe restrain yes,but to beat someone is making them worse that the non violent offenders!And yes you can get a law suit against them...I personally know someone that did!And they were awarded money in their case.Some of the c.o.'s think because they are in the position to be mean against inmates that is alright.But remember they all have family members who love and care for them.Some of them might not be toothless and threaten to come after the ones who abuse our loved ones..some of us will go out and hire a lawyer and sue the pants off of them and make sure they lose their jobs!

Yes I know that happened.For a fact!Your the one that doesn't know shit!But yet you come one here to add your 2 cents in a conversation that you know nothing about!And to let you know you can sue them if they are in the wrong(fact)and I do know someone that went there for a petty charge and got beat for asking for a pillow!It took 5 or 6 that time too.His beating paid for his lawyer and gave him 7 grand to boot!And I also don't know what neck of the woods you come from to think everyone will send a toothless brother to even the score.But where we come from we get lawyers!

With that much money he could buy the Mediterranean.

They are housing all the female inmates in one central wv regional jail because of all of the abuse by male guards.
The entire regional jail system has changed its policy regarding pepper spray. It now can only be used in extreme cases. This changed because a lawyer had been arrested and was lined up with a group of other inmates on a wall, as ordered. The guards threatened anyone who moved with pepper spray. The attorney inmate sneezed and was sprayed.
Regardless of what these individuals did, they are considered wards of the state and deserve to be treated appropriately. Though the inmates have allegedly broken the law to get there, you actually do not abhor that the guards are breaking the law by beating them?
Couldn't agree more! My sister is a federal corrections officer, and would also agree with you.

Their claims are not debatable since they have been found to be believable by juries.

Women inmates were abused by guards. The regional jail changed its policy to house every female inmate from all over the state at one location to prevent this in the future.

Others have also won their court cases.

I have a relative that works as a guard. He says abuse happens more often than not and their is a code of silence to prevent guards from snitching on other guards. He is looking for another job.

The guards think they are Gods, because they have a uniform, just like the police officers, because they have a badge they can do what the heck they want. It takes a person with a CERTAIN MENTALLITY to do a job as a guard or a police officer...that is a low mentallity, arrogant mentallity, and a heartless mentallity. Because that is what they are.

Agreed. Usually power hungry people with little man syndrome get the above jobs. Anytime a CO or police officer abuses an inmate or citizen who is at a disadvantage , they are excercising their power over that person.

Look at what happened in New Orleans after hurricane Katrina. Police and Military were raping women and robbing jewerly stores. They were going door to door taking guns away from law abiding citizens violating their second ammendment rights. Leaving those citizens with no way to protect themselves. Welcome to emergency dictatorship Amerikkka.

these young gaurds and police are thugs. they are low wage earners with little man syndrome created by the local gov. The video game generation who is desensitized to the acts of violence against people.

Sounds to me like some of these people just can't obey the law. I am a nurse at the regional and I regret to inform everyone that we do have females here...so you haven't a clue what youre talking about. Also, it is possible to love a job in corrections. Nothing makes me feel better than knowing a help & make a difference with these inmates every day. Where else can you say you've helped repeat offenders through addiction, child molesters reform, parental neglect predators give a crap. Only at Western Regional Jail. I personally feel as if magic kingdom would be appropriate for a name change, because here is where dreams come true :)

does anyone know if there is any truth in the guards there that beat the inmates?If so do they realize when they get off of work that they are the same as you and I?And they can't hide at their jobs for ever!Have they heard of street justice?does it really take more than 5 of them to beat a 150 pound man?wtf,
I believe so. Does anyone know the names of the guards at reqional. I plan to TRY to file charges once I get all the details. The guards were on duty 11-09-12 through 11-11. I cant go into detail because I dont know all the facts. What I do know is the person that was released had multiple bruises, bleeding , and facial swelling. I was told by this person it was the guards. this person is not a repeat criminal, works, just made a bad choice resulting in a mist. No reason at all to lie about what happened.

I agree that inmates are USUALLY not your typical productive member of society. BUT....the guards DID beat a family member if mine who has never been in jail, works a full time job, pays taxes, just made a bad choice and ended up with a mist. I picked him I saw his face and I know he is not an aggressive person, nor was he on any drugs or alcohol. What they did to him was not right on any level. They did it because they could, they realized he was a newbie to the system and took advantage of it. They are COWARDS

I am a little jealous... Our tax dollars are paying for these freeloading bums to get the Hilton treatment in jail until they get out, and the guards are the only ones that get to beat them!?! They should let the tax payers take a trip down there once a week and pick a few to beat on!
