Too often the prison staff ignore inmates reporting threats. The staff tells them it is just empty threats or something stupid like that. Any threats should be taken seriously!!! Investigate the charges of the threatened inmate, what are the threats about, etc. The mindset that things happen to people in prison, and it is their fault they are in there, is bs. Prison should be protecting the inmate from inmates as well as protecting society from the inmate.

Stop holding "Everyone" accountable. Hold the people or person who are responsible accountable! And, make an attempt at Classifying these inmates.. in stead of leaving them to rot! Giving them nothing to look forward to will result in more of this behavior! You say you have "Programs" well.. let's see some being used!
