He's a scum sucking inmate that needed to die. Sorry it wasn't more of them killed. All the so called 'gangbangers' need to go to hell. I work there and if he is into some dirty shit I say job well done. I have been there 10 years and I agree that a good inmate is a dead inmate lol. Hell if I could kill them I would. Most of them are no good sumbitches any so whoever killed him I would like to say thank you

<quoted text> People like you piss me off. Just because he was in prison dont make it right for you to talk about people like that. yes he was in prison and are tax dollars are paying for him.. Heres an idea lets just let them all out of prison and then we can all then "really" feel safe.. but our tax dollars wont be going to waste. Being sarcastic.. What if it was one of your family members or friends son.. I know you know someone that has been in jail before for something.. Its not right that he was killed. he was only doing a 5 year sentence.
U must not pay taxes u must live off of lake county welfare lol

Who cares about some low life criminal waste of sperm. I wish they would all kill each other and save us taxpayers some money. They should dress all the prisoners in deer outfits and let them free in the woods. The lowlife prisoners and their worthless families need to all move out of lake county

Traditionl news media doesn't usually report prisons. Its kind of like how all the cancers have a ribbon color except lung cancer. They assume its always a smoker and they brought it on themselves. Personally I believe the prison system doesn't have enough correctional officers to do the job properly and safely with the vast amount ofinmates any more than the under-staffed healthcare system.Everything is about doing the most work with the least amount of employees and our country is suffering from it. We will be China in no time.

WOW IS ALL I HAVE TO SAY. If you dislike your job as a guard then you should find somewhere else to work. Ever watch the news and see how dna has proven some inmates are actually innocent. Not all inmates are scum. Even if they have committed a crime and are paying the price they have rights. I truly hope god has mercy on you on judgement day. No parent should have to go through finding out their child has died. And judging the families of someone that has committed a crime. Again, not everyone that is in prison are bad people. Some have made one bad choice in life and are paying the price. Many of the readers here I can guarantee have went out and had a few drinks and then drove but you got lucky and got home okay without killing yourself or someone else. Again, I hope god has mercy on your sole

First off learn how to spell soul dumbass it's not the bottom of your shoe. And if you love the scumbags so much then come up there and work hell u might even marry one. All inmates are scum and need to die. It's not my fault that u love the inmates that's ur fault. Maybe u r a white girl or guy that's wants to try some black dick. So do the world a favor before judgement day and kill yourself.

Well sometimes your iPhone puts in the wrong spelling and I guess if you don't retread your post that can happen. But anyway you try to pass judgement on people. I am a very well educated mom and grandma that owns my own business. I have a husband that is ex military and yes I am white but then so is my husband. From those comments you made it sounds as those you are very racist. I believe there are good and bad guards and some deserve to be in prison for the crimes they do by smuggling in contraband which last I checked is a felony in Tennessee. That is exactly what you have to committ to land yourself in prison. My statement was if you hate your job then you should find a different line of work. Just saying!

Yes I am aware they are correctional officers I just refer to them also as guards because you do exactly that. You make sure you guard the inmates to try to keep everyone safe and yourselves. I would not want the job you guys have. You put your life on the line everyday and do not get paid as much as you should. You go into work everyday not knowing what is going to happen. I do believe not all inmates are bad some just made one bad choice in their lives and do their time and do something good with their lives but don't get me wrong there are plenty that need to be in prison for the awful crimes they have committed like murderers rapist crimes against children and the elderly. God bless the guards that do care and put their lives on the line.

First you own no business, secondly if you are a white women you are one of those dumb mudsharks who threw her life away chasing after these losers . You are just anotha hole. These morons desere what they get. I am no prison guard but I hear these inmate punks show no respect to the guards. And any punk who cannot show respect is gonna be apunk all his life. So loser hole get a life and some self respect . You have to love yourself or you will always end some hole in an abusive no where relationship.
