Well thanks for the saved money for 25 years........ Sorry he's dead. But he did his part to help America stop spending so much money.

He felt he deserved to pay for his crime........What's the problem?

Now that's a punishment!!

Death.

Who cares. I wish they'd all kill themselves. It's cheaper that way.

Yeah, until you consider that there will be all these investigations that cost money. Then the family of the guy who committed suicide will probably try to sue the prison/state for negligence. Even if they lose their case there will be legal expenses and probably some kind of settlement. I doubt it ends up saving the state much money in the long run and could easily cost more. How's that for a screwed up system?

Sounds like they were doing what they normally do as prison guards....Nothing. It's a free money job at tax payers expense. Why not give them paid leave? It's money that comes for free to all of state employees that work in that awful system.

Correctional Officers in Ohio are more corrupt than most think. How do you think drugs get into the prisons? There is a thin grey line between these COs and those they watch. Most COs are criminals who have never been caught. And many are down right pychos.
Perhaps you should try it out, take a job paying 15 bucks an hour & not know if you will make it home to see your family at the end of the day. Assaults on staff are outrageous, and the inmates to staff ratios are in critical & unsafe levels.
Regular cops on the street make 3 times as much money and don't deal with these dangerous felons every day. Most just cruise around eat doughnuts and write tickets. When there is the RARE officer involved in drugs they get caught & pay dearly for being an idiot.
Perhaps if we staffed the prisons at safe levels and paid those folks what they should be earning they could babysit in the fashion you would like them to do.

Not suspended, "paid leave". They are getting a paid vacation as a reward for not doing their jobs. Sure the perp. probably deserved to die and it save taxpayer money in the end, but what if instead of killing himself he killed another guard or staff member?

This is the Dumbest thing I've ever seen. If this Loser wanted to kill himself, let him.. I don't understand how we penalize those who did nothing w/regards to this Loser killing himself.

As usual, the Ohio State Highway Patrol shows how Worthless they really are...

" OVERPRICED " Traffic Cops !!!!

So what is the cut off rate that a guard won't be corrupt???......$18.00 an hour....$20.00 an hour.....
Your statement is NO excuse for prison guard corruption...."pay me or I'll be corupt".....

Give these guys a raise and an accomodation. They just saved us all some money. Supply rope and poison to the convicts and that would surely ease the overcrowded prison problem and save millions.

It's become a thing with public employees....."Paid Leave"...
Make them come in to work, and assign them to sit in the garage....but make them put in the hours they're getting paid for

Over in the thread about the Lucasville hunger strike they're saying to let the inmates kill themselves. In this thread it's a fricking shame that the inmate killed himself.

The officers are damned if they do and damned if they don't.

Yea good point..... I guess they can just find any reason they want to spend all our money. We need to take Washinton back from them. They work for us. We need to change the rules of their health care. Put them on the same system as us. I feel bad this woman in Arizona was shot. But maybe at the same time it will kick a few of them in the pants. So the know... Yea there are crazy people out here who will shoot you if you don't do your job right. Sad.... But I don't feel bad for here. They have all put this on themselves. Stop all the lies and back room deals to get things done in America. This is the same reason Rome fell. Wake up people . Learn your history. Or you will repeat it.
