So, to murder, arson and armed robbery, just add rape. No biggie to him, right?

Sir, I am a corrections officer. I promise you that filth will have a miserable existance for the rest of his very worthless-pittiful life.

Even CO's who do nothing wrong are not rats. No one will ever witness a claim of wrongdoing. He is worse than dead. Every employee will be waiting to gat a piece of him.

Think about his food, visits, mail, recreation, education, medical, dental, religious freedom. He will pay.

The pretty lady promises!

I don't see the logic of having female correction officers guarding hardcore, violent male prisoners.

Years ago in a New York State prison, an inmate named Lemuel Smith, who was serving life for multiple murders, raped and murdered Correction Officer Donna Payant. The local DA didn't want to charge him with murder, and waste taxpayer money on a trial, because there was no death penalty in force at the time, and all he could get was another life sentence, which he was already serving. Where was justice in that case?

More recently, a prisoner in an Atlanta courthouse overpowered a female guard, and escaped. In the process, he murdered a judge, a guard, a clerk, and an off-duty federal agent before being recaptured.

These are only two examples of a disturbing trend in American law enforcement. It's apparent that we as a society have learned very little from these atrocities, and others, because political correctness has replaced common sense in our prison administrations and law enforcement agencies.

Why the heck was this prisoner even allowed in the library? He should have been kept locked up in a cell.
He shouldn't have had any priveleges.

Oh, we have to lower the standards so women can have these jobs. Then when it comes time to step up to the plate they fail.

It is not the gender of the gaurd, it is that authorities should have had this violent criminal shackled at the ankles and at the wrist. He isn't raping no one then.

What are you insinuating, that it is the guards fault??? Somehow she is responsible for being brutally abused because of being the "weaker sex"? I didn't realize people like you still existed in the 21st century.

I feel badly for the CO but who was the boss that had a girl one on one with this bum? Somebody dropped the ball big-time here. Why didn't her fellow COs do this guy right then and there?

It's not the guards fault, but why have a female guard a male inmate? On top of that she's alone with him. Common sense would dictate having a male guard with a male, an a female guard with a female. We are talking about safety issues here, for the guards not the inmate.

This fine Afro-American inmate assaulted the white CO and informed her that he was going to "hurt her like the white people had hurt him." The assault lasted an hour. It seems that only News 4 Jacksonville had the integrity to report the entire story.

Lady, you're truly living in a cloud. There are over a billion muslim men that think women are not only weak but nothing more than chattle. Wake up and get a grip and quit taking offense on everything like a typical woman lib. The 60's are over. Thanks.

The guard wasn't up to do the job. If you don't have the tools, you shouldn't be on the job. This political correctness is bogus.

Believe me, I am a woman who believes women should be treated equally. I agree with you. There are some jobs suited to men, and some jobs suited to women.

fine? I don't think so. This is the reality of the situation. People like him get mistreated, they find the first vulnerable person to take it out on. It happens all the time. Women who are mistreated find children to take it out on. People think they are going to get away with abusing others, but they never do really.
