Two prison guards beaten and its sad cause they can't defend themselves due to those animals having too much rights and the warden and the majors can't not even checking on there employees

the state of texas needs to shut down the smith unit,it is too dangerous for the guards,and its getting worse.the smith unit has become so under staffed with guards and the inmates know it.i heard there was a riot in the cafeteria at the smith unit.its getting bad over there at the smith unit.

Those inmates may have screwed up big time to have ended up where they are in the first place. In contrast, when people are treated like animals, you might expect them to bite when backed into a corner...just like an animal. They are still people whether you agree with me or not, and I'm sure you won't. Just because they royally screwed up doesn't mean that a C.O. has a right to judge them and issue whatever punishment he feels is appropriate. Those offenders have already been tried and found guilty. Just as in law enforcement, or in any other profession for that matter, there are going to be some bad apples whether you like it or not.
I'm not saying those C.O.s deserved what happened, but at the same time you are not giving us much more information to support your viewpoint. There's much more that is required to validate your argument.
In closing, consider the mission statement: The mission of TDCJ is to PROVIDE PUBLIC SAFETY, PROMOTE POSITIVE change in offender behavior, REINTEGRATE offenders into society and ASSIST victims of crime. Therefore, if a warden or a major is not following up on it then this unwillingness to "assist victims of crime" directly violates that mission statement. At the same time, I have been in the prison environment as a C.O. and can say that I have seen many more bad apples than good ones.

It's BS that they couldn't defend themselves. Everyone has that right. I'm not worried because it does no good to sit around worrying and thinking that it's sad. Quit being the one that couldn't stand up and defend your friends...try standing up and doing something about it for a change. Just because I personally feel that inmates should not be treated like animals does not mean that I agree with what happened. I have faith in and truly hope that the powers that be deliver swift justice to those responsible for this violent crime. But again, if that isn't happening then you aren't helping the issue by sitting around posting your feelings, without facts, on topix.
The problem with the Smith unit as that training consists of new boots walking around with officers that have been there a little longer than they have. That is NOT proper training.

i still dont know exactly what happened at the smith unit yesterday,but,thhere are big problems not just at the smith unit,but,in lamesa,texas.if you are not a drug dealer in lamesa,what rights do you have?none.same thing at the smith unit,the inmates have all the rights,and the prison guards,who only make 2000 dollars a month,have to wait on these people like should hear these prisoners every day:give me this,give me that.inmates are muslim one day,and the next day they are buddhist,and again,the guards have to cater to their part time religion,which means special diets.the facts are clear,smith unit guards are quitting in droves with little to nothing to replace the,a bunch of rookies are running the place,the unit is under staffed,the inmates know its under staffed,the warden doesnt know what to do about it,..the smith unit is a disaster waiting to happen.what ever happened yester day is nothing compared what might happen if this is not resolved SOON.

Officer Ambriz and Lopez were injured by the inmates that supposeably were being fed and they (inmates) jumped on Osario another officer but both Ambriz,Lopez ended up injured been that Ambriz took the most beaten but like it was said before" those animals attack when cornered but the shoes (OFFICERS)were the ones cornered and still the WARDEN doesn't consider it important to have Smith Unit on lock down or check status of employees

You were obviously a dirty CO who gave into your inmates. If you are a female more than likely you spent 12 hour shifts on your knees giving into to your caged animals... your postings show what an animal you truly are... the MEN that were assaulted are seasoned officers and are good people who do not deserve to be treated this way.. My prayers go out to the old school bosses and their families ...... to the asshole who is not worried rot in hell and post who you are and the reason you more than likely got walked off the unit!

This is a sad and eye opening event, these guards need proper training and my heart goes out to the injuried c officers no one deserves to go through something like that. Hope things get better out there

my prayers go out to the officers who were for the inmates,its hard to talk about it unless you have walked the walk...the co's involved are good men..we cant say that they got hurt because they asked for it..if you have ever been around inmates, they are like everyone else, if u piss them off someone might get the backlash becuz u are not around to get the butt whooping they want to give u so someone else gets hurt. but may God bless everyone and may the officers have a blessed healing!
