According to the news, this investigation had gone on for years. After several allegation of staff misconduct, i.e., sexual favors, bringing in contraband, threats, etc., why were these six officers allowed to continue to work within the prison? Why not place them on home duty status, at least until the investigation had concluded? Who, within the Bureau of Prisonís chain of command (Director, Regional Director, Warden, etc.), made the decision to allow them to continue in there perspective positions. Is it not the role of the Bureau of Prisons to protect the community, its staff, and the inmate population? Knowing that these men had allegedly committed numerous and serious violations placed everyone in harms way? This was unethical. Also, I know that the officer should not have had a gun within the prison. I too believe he was forewarned about the arrest. Nevertheless, why did the Inspector General or the other federal agents have guns within the prison? According to the Bureau of Prisonsí posted rules, upon arrival, these agents were to check their weapons into the armory and upon their departure; their weapons were to be returned. Protocol was not followed by the agents. There will be a lot of blame going on. However, the bottom line is that everyone involved made some huge mistakes. I just hope that they have learned something from this tragedy.

Denise, the event is not adding true...I believe there is more to this than just an arrest of five COs gone bad...stop and think about everything you just stated..I am anxiouly waiting to see Geraldo Rivero tonight at 7pm on fox..he is airing this and IF there are any dark scerets being kept from the public he will surely aired them ...I think there was more happening in that prison that what is being told. Unless I do not know how to research the web..I can not find any follow ups in newspapers or such...just went silent as the bust the same time in Miami surrounding alleged terroist.(?)

This is happening all over Florida in all of our jails, until everyone involved in the corruption and cover ups is charged and jailed nothing will change. Fisrt we need to vote out Jeb Bush from ever seeking public office again. He knows of the corruption and doesn't seem to be doing much of anything about it. Look at the Martin Anderson case, no arrests. The whole U.S. is watching this case, Jeb has lost all respect from thousands.

I agree totally Sassy I have personally written both Warden rivera at FCI Tallahassee, the Inspector General's Office at DOJ, and the Director of BOP, Mr Harley Lappin, asking why BOP is making no effort to advise teh public about what is being done. All I get is meaningless, cursory respones.

i was a prisoner at fci tallahassee from 2002-2005 and there is no end to the corruption of that prison.Almost all of the officers are crooked and they can cover up anything they do. i know all the officers on that indictment and even more that werent listed who are involved in the same activity.this has been going on for years and years and still is to this day.the truth is these women are being raped and exploited and the government allows it and covers it up.if there is any updated info please e mail me @ amigwin 2yahoo.com

I spent 10 years at fci tallahasse and i saw a lot while i was there. i knew all the officers involved in tne 2006 incident.yes, this is old but it is an incident that i personally will never forget. I lived in F unit and the offices involved in the corruption were at one time or another over our unit mostly at night. you see things and you don't say anything because no one believes you unless you are actually one that they are after. these were not the first and surely won't be the last. Thank God that I am home. The women in these faciities need help not abuse and criticism. The incarceration of some of us was based on lies just because of the war on drugs. most of the real dealers are given immunity.

I've worked with missions and helping women for years now, and this facility concerns me. Is there any voluntary work I can do there? or do you know if any of the lawyers need help. I speak Portuguese and Spanish. Please let me know
