People go to jail if they breath wrong anymore. We have innocent people in jail now! It doesn't matter! The point is, that guards and officers are there to do a job. They are not there to beat a inmate!!!!!!!!!! Give em a badge and they think they are GOD!
Oh, I agree they should not be treating inmates badly. A lot of people think they are God and are the law, are above the law, or just plain better than others...... welcome to the real world. Nothing will ever change.

I was a CO for Regional Jail Authority...how many of you get shit/piss/vomit/blood thrown at you at work ? have to work with people with AIDS, HEP C, and any other number of diseases ? How many of you are locked in a large room with 30 inmates everyday ? Unless you have done it ? you don't have a clue...inmates beat each other worse than any CO ever has...IF you can't do the time, don't do the crime...Jail is not a vacation...don't blame CO's for your friends or family breaking the law and ending up in Jail....If you want to do something about it ? go apply and work there, they are always short handed.....

You and others choose to work there! If we didn't have ppl that broke the law, u would have no job! CO should never lay a finger on a inmate period! Unless it is in self defense. I have never been in jail or have family or friends in jail. I beleive that if u take a oath to serve and protect, than do so! This oath is not to beat ppl because they are in jail!

REALLY....so it is ok for people to touch children and molest them, for people to put there hands on other people's stuff( steal ) to put there hands on people to kill them, but, it's not ok for a CO to put his hands on a child molester, thief or murderer if that child molester, thief or murderer does not do as they are told ??? is that your opinion ?? sounds like you have been in jail ?? sounds like you are one of the...I'm so innocent, I never did anything wrong....HAHA....Like I heard a million times at the jail...I'm innocent...yea right, if everyone was why would we have jails ?? Be glad there are people who will do it, or you would be crying, put those people in jail where they belong....lol

You are missing the point! The point of the topic is that CO's should not put their hands on a inmate! Your job title isn't about beating a inmate. You are very defensive. Are you beating inmates? As I stated before, find another job if you don't like what you are doing! No, I hate to bust your bubbles but I have never been in jail! I just believe in morals! Inmates are in jail for breaking the law and yes they deserve to be there but not to be hit by a CO. Now, if you can't comprehend that, you need to get a different line of employment. I think the FBI needs to get this post and get this IP address and investigate this CO! Something is not adding up here!

According to any inmate or ex inmate they didn't do anything, they didn't keep that razor blade to cut their cell mates throat, who happens to be one of the rare guys who was innocent . Or tried to hurt or kill the officers who tried to restrain him, when their job is to keep the plubic and other inmates safe and they do this all without any harmful weapons?? But no lets believe the inmate who is out to sue and get money!! Really people , all correctional officers are what keeps you safe in bed at night so these POS don't come to your house and kill you for that bottle of pills in your cabinet.

^yeah because jail house murders are so common in Wv. The crime happening at TVRJ is almost non-existent compseed to real city jails, or a place like Jefferson County Ohio which is a smaller jail then the regional here.

Co's are a joke it's like 1 step above a mall cop, not even in the same league as police officers or military personel. I have family members who are CO'S at a few of the state prisons as and they would never S's say "we keep you safe" because they're not naive enough to believe that. They also would never talk about beating inmates and trying to justify it because they know the only CO'S doing that are the ones who should be inmates themselves.

ALSO to the guy "you never had disease ridden piss thrown on you" Maybe you should have went to college or something, you're damn right I never worked a job like that because I was intelligent enough to earn a bachelor's degree so I could avoid getting piss thrown on me for $8 an hour. Maybe you should do the same.

I also noticed you used past tense, as in you quit or were fired. If it's such a great and rewarding job who are always short handed why would you ever leave? Must of seen the opportunity to make a better living and have a more respectable job when McDonalds had the "now hiring" sign

Veteran it sounds like you have been a resident of TVRJ a time or too. Way too bitter with your words not to have been.
As for the “beating’s” the Correctional Officer's were found not guilty, So WV Rebel's statement above was PROVEN accurate, it's all about the money.
Unless you have been living under a rock, or maybe Jail/Prison you would of known TVRJ did have a MURDER a few months back where an inmate killed another inmate. So yes it does happen BUT the reason it's not that common is because, those Correctional Officer's that you like to sit behind your computer and put down and down grade are working 60 plus hours a week to ensure it don't become a common occurrence.
And let me just say this straight up, I have been in the field of Corrections for awhile almost 10 years. If a Correctional Officer does not feel he or she is not helping to keep the community, there fellow officer's and the inmate population safe, they are not doing their job the way they were trained to do so. So to say someone is being 'naïve' is incorrect. What it sounds like you're saying is the inmates would keep each other inline, and we don't need Correctional Officer's, After all there the lowest of the low.I could not imagine a scenario where an inmate would say to another inmate "Dude no, you're not leaving, you have three more years left." LMAO!!
Now don't get me wrong I'm in no way taking up for the hand full of "Dirty" officer's, those cowards that bring illegal drugs and tobacco in to the facilities for the inmate's because they are scared or are selling it to them for outrageous prices and lets not forget the ones that finds the color orange a turn on and has sex with the inmate. Those who cross that line needs to be incarcerate and placed in jail. And I agree Correctional Officer's don't get paid enough for what they do and have to put up with, But $8 an hour is incorrect try about $24,000 for the first year, then they get a five percent raise, this is the real reason Jails/ Prisons are so short staffed.
So Veteran you can take your Bachelor's degree and your intelligence and go back behind the counter at McDonald's and take my order, While I take my high school education and my $60,000 a year job with the State Correctional System, Cause you see all that( Bachelor degree and intelligence) means nothing if you have a felony on your record. Mickey D's will be your only option. Oh and by the way as you can see not all Correctional Officer's quit or get fired we work hard, show dedication and move up to a higher pay scale in the division.

I agree 100% with LMAO and WV Rebel and really!!

To really...all in all when an inmate Hit's an Officer, they restrain them the way they have been trained, when an inmate gets hurt in the process, it's because they are still being aggressive toward the Officers and more force is applied to get them to comply, All with in what the law tells them they can. YES that's right the LAW allows them to apply force when needed. NOT because the Officer's are punishing them, just trying to keep them from hurting themselves or those around them.

Most people don't have a clue what a Correctional Officer has to do, go through, rules they have to follow...Because all they hear is the inmates side of the story. And ignorance sometimes prevails, as in the case of Veteran, and some of those before him/her.

To the (Really) post in Feb. 2013, YOU have no clue, and are only going by what you hear probably from an inmate or ex inmate.....It's human nature to get defensive when accused of a crime you did not do. 99.9% of the time it is self defense.

Correctional Officer's get a bad rap from the inmates spreading lies, to make their family/friends feel sorry for them. Most Officers don't talk much about work because they are trained/told not to(NO attention seeking behavior). So that leads the public only to hear the inmates side of the story(which is attention seeking behavior).The normal every day person who has not worked in the Correctional field would not see it as an attention seeking behavior but in all reality it is.
