All right, Utica Topix dwellers, let's not have a FAILURE TO COMMUNICATE! Most of us probably know a CO or two; here's an interesting way to evaluate them w/o having to worry too much about the consequences. You should, however, keep a sharp lookout for the guy in the tower......

Eternal Father, pour out your mercy and blessings upon the people who post on this site. May they speak kindly of one another, stop the hate and gossip and remember your command to Love You and Love One Another. If they are to be shown Mercy some day, they must be merciful to one another. We seem to have forgotten your words, "Do not judge, lest ye be judged, and the measure by which you measure, will be measured unto you" Help us to realize that Life is SHORT, ETERNITY is FOREVER. What we do and say in this life or what we fail to do for our brothers and sisters will determine where we spend Eternity. Every slur and hateful word spoken against our brother or sister, is a hateful word and slur against You. Help us to remember that whatever we do to the least of our brothers and sisters, we do for you, and what we fail to do to the least of our brothers and sisters, we fail to do for you. Amen

SO YOU WANT TO BECOME A CO

WANTED: Young men between the ages of 21 and 69. Must be in perfect physical condition, and above average intelligence. College men preferred. Must be willing to work weekends and most Holidays, including Christmas.
*
Starting salary not really commensurate with the risks, however, after a few years, the applicant can work up to a salary equivalent to most laborers in industry. Must be willing to forfeit his right to strike, openly support any political party or candidate not already in power, or engage in any conduct that his superiors feel is unbecoming to his position in the community.
*
Must be unemotional, not allowed the luxury of reacting like human beings are known to react, not easily bothered by seeing victims of rape, beatings, and homicide. Must be prepared to deal with drunks, dope addicts, sexual perverts, hardlined criminals, militants, revolutionaries, mental patients, aided and abetted by assorted do-gooders, without becoming HARDENED toward society.
*
Applicants should be prepared to be spit at, hit with urine and human excrement, bottles, clubs, etc. He may be shot at, kicked, slashed, stabbed, punched, subject to mayhem without becoming visibly upset, and without any retaliatory action that could be misinterpreted as brutal conduct.
*
On the job training in the latest concepts of penology, and enough law to protect the Department, so that he will not be sued or bring suits against his employer. Any loss through Civil Suits will not be the concern of the hiring body if it is shown that such action resulted from a misinterpretation of the law, or directives of the employer, or simply if political expediency requires a goal.
*
Families of the applicants should be prepared to be ridiculed, shunned, and publicly joked about because of the occupation involved. Accusations of brutality, sadism, cruelty, dishonesty, and ineptness will be common. Families of such applicants should not defend such charges if it would result in embarrassment to the hiring body.
*
Applicants should expect to spend 25 to 40 years before retiring, promotions are dependent upon ability (??), political affiliation, impressions made on persons in prominent positions. Some kind of pension will be provided. The applicant and his wife can expect to exist barely above the poverty level, not really eligible for benefits available to the rich or the poor.
*
Those meeting the above requirements or qualifications should report to their nearest psychiatrist, after a series of tests, interviews and checks, you may be considered for a career in corrections where, even the Commissioner "can't tell the good guys from the bad guys."

"THE FORGOTTEN COP"
excerpted from an article by CO Donald P*****,N** Y*** Dept of Corrections Services"

I am the "forgotten cop" hidden from public view,doing a dangerous,thankless duty on the world's most dangerous beat: I am a correctional officer in a maxium security facility.
My beat is inhabited by convicted felons. I am outnumbered by as much as 20,30 and even 40 to one during my workday. Contrary to popular belief,I work without a firearm. My neck is on the line every minute of every day

I am empowered by the state to enforce penal laws,rules and regulations. In short, I am a policeman,hoping someday to receive the respect and the approval of the public whom I silently serve.

A prison is a misunderstood enviorment. The average person has little knowledge of its workings. Society sends its criminals to correctional facilities and as time passes each criminal fades from memory until the collective prison population becomes a vision where hordes of "bad people" are warehoused away from decent society in a place where they can cause no further harm.

The notion that inmates cease to be a problem when they are incarcerated couldn't be further from the truth. The reality is that felonies are committed daily in correctional facilities. The prisons and jails where correctional officers work are full of violence perpetrated by the inmate population against each other and against the staff.

In the course of maintaining order officers endure countless humiliations. Many are spit upon while others have endured having urine and feces thrown at them. Officrs are pinched,kicked,bitten,stabbed and slashed with homemade weapons,taken hostage and face hidden dangers in the form of AIDS,TUBERCULOSIS`and HEPATITUS or sadly even MURDERED in the line of duty.

Why don't we as correction officers retaliate? Because it's our job to maintain professional composure and refrain from retaliation or face possible dismissal.

You will never see me on "RESCUE 911" or "TOP COPS" None of the "FORGOTTEN COPS" will ever be featured. We are too busy trying to stay alive and walk our beat as best we can.

Oh, this is just so beautiful for our men in light blue. With dark blue pants.'Cmon you guys, this is why you're made fun of! If you're really CO's you should know by now Topix is not the place if your looking for a pat on the back. Post your poetry in the locker room, not here for the whole community to see! It only adds to the lacking image. You get paid pretty good for what you do, so stop with the drama and just do your fucking job. Please. Walmart employees and garbage men don't even come on here with such self inflating nonsensical crap (no offense Walmart and garbage people..it's actually more a compliment to your humbleness). Get a grip! Or maybe it's..loosen your grip? STFU and do your job.

Give me a break. I know several co’s and most were fit for job entry and over time from sitting on their asses, became fat slobs. Intelligence? Give me another break. All are as dumb as a box of rocks. No common sense what so ever. All they do is cry about their jobs. Oh I had to put one in the box today and it took me 20 minutes to white a to-from. Oh I had one tell me fu today. I showed him, I told him fu back. Bla bla freakin bla. Don’t like your job, QUIT! Try dealing with the public. We don’t have anyone watching our backs. We take care of our selves with the unruly.

Most COs join up to get a state job that will pay them way more than what they would get in an everyday job. Most of them are dumber than a box of rocks, and arrogant too. Who doesnt want to get $70K for sitting on your a55 all day? Some are good people, but the majority are losers.

How's the online self praise working for you now CO? Stop starting fires and you won't get the flames bud. Worry more about your kid, less about topix and how hard your job is. People give a shit about how you raise and support the child you brought into this world much more than the job you do each day to support that child...get off your CO soap box, go do your fuckin job, then come home and take care of anything that needs care at home....then repeat. I shouldn't have to spell this out, but apparently you need to hear it, read it, hear it and read it over and over...tell me when it sinks in and I'll stop.

Watch out now, if you inslt the career correction officers all they have to repsond with is "you must be a convict" even though you aren't. This is their level of inelligent response! Of course no one ever really expected anything brilliant from career correction officers! That's why they're not "career enfineers" or "career CNAs" or something. They resent the world and pretend anyone who thinks they are failures are "felons" to make their egos feel better. Careful! Don't set the babies off!

The most of them are cop wanabees. Basically all the cop emotional problems and motivations without the title. The worst is when you see the father & son career correction officers! Stupidity and non marketable skills run in hillbilly upstate NY families!
