Right on Mr.Castner, Its so nice to know that there are good people like you, and that would come to the rescue of the weak. May this good deed come back to you someday.

Um, faked a seizure? Slipped cuffs or waist chains?

Rule number one: Inmates are liers. If one is having a medical emergency, it is just as likely he is faking it as it is he has a problem.

Rule number two. Your inmate is your guy, something happening to another inmate, you pay attention to your guy. Ever think that they could be causing a disturbance for a reason? See rule number one.

Rule number three. They all tell you the cuff/shackles are too tight. They can't escape unless you put them on loose. So when they say it is too tight, see rule number one.

If all of this is too hard to remember I have made a simpe rule. If an inmates mouth is moving, it is a lie.

Oh, the media does not care but another guy tried to escape from the Sacramento Courthouse two weeks ago but was captured by Deputies before he got too far. But success does not make the news.

How were two prisoners able to run out of the court house and begin to carjack an innocent lady in her car without any city police or county sheriffs in hot pursuit? It took a guy on the street to intervene? Pretty sad, but in the end no big deal because they will both be out soon enough (thanks to the state) to start attacking innocent people again......

Time for DVI to retrain their out-to-court officers. I see some disciplinary action coming in the near future.

Bravo, Mr. Castner!

Sean Castner unfortunately passed away not too long after this. I grew up with Sean and I have always witnessed such great things from Sean. He served for our Country as well. We all lost touch for a few years and got in touch again about a year before his death. His wife is just as wonderful and his children were amazing. May God rest his soul!
