This is a bunch of bs. If he killed the inmate, the other guards would have called the sheriff right then and there. He wouldn't have been able to go home.

I know what you mean but the sheriff has no control of what goes on in there.

When something happens in there they call in the state police aka: State Highway Patrol

You seriously believe that? Everybody deserves a chance,at one point i was incarcerated but i turned my life around and am now a productive member of society so there is hope even for those who are incarerated.

What whomever said earlier is true I know because someone from the inside said that the C O wasn't watching and guy died in the hole then the officer went home and killed himself this is so very true but Ross will hide it and as it seems they are already trying to say that he was in a cell with someone else when everyone knows you go to the hole alone. So they are trying to pin that death on another poor inmate who didn't do it but they figure who will believe the inmates anyway

Your a fool. The "hole" at Ross along with probably 90% of the other prisons all are allowed to have 2 inmates per cell in isolation. Was it intended to be that way? Probably not, but due to the overcrowding within the prison walls, you have to do what you have to do

Yep they got a big round camera on a pole hanging down from the ceiling with tinted glass around it so you cant see where its pointed.

I knew a Mike Lane that lived on the far west side of Columbus in the mid 80's. Can't tell by your picture if that's you or not. Just curious.

You all are extremely sorry individuals to talk about the deceased that way- whether they have done wrong or not- you do not speak ill of the dead. That gaurd has family at home that no longer gets to look forward to him coming home as well as the inmate who lost his life in a place like a correctional institution- you know not of what he has done or what he would have done after he got the chance to start over and none of us have the power or authority to judge him for his actions. As for the individuals who seem to find it humerous poking fun at the inmates, I bet you would have a different perspective of those criminals if the shoe was on the other foot or if it was your loved one. Think before you speak people, and hopefully one day you so called adults will grow into your age.

I agree with most of your post... But people can speak freely on the inmate situation in my eyes, like you said, "if the shoe was on the other foot" well that road travels both ways. Sure there are non violent crimes and some of them are not bad people, but let me shed light just from my experience.
1. I had a cousin that over dosed on a bad drug, a drug that he purchased from a "non violent crime" drug dealer.
2. Another cousin that was killed many years ago because he wouldn't give his wallet to some thug, apparently that $37 was worth his life
3. An uncle who was killed by a drunk driver
4. My house was broken into, took some money, jewelry, guns, and electronics, a crime that still haunts my wife to the point where she has nightmares, thank god for her and my child not being home at the time, and lucky for the trash that did it, I wasn't home
5. Last but not least, my ex, whose daughter I practically raised the first several years of her life, was molested by her uncle when she was 7

Sorry if I am not to sympathetic to the inmate population

I agree and understand why you would have harsh feelings against criminals who have hurt you in some way or another, I to have been the subject of drug addicted family members,being robbed, losing loved ones, etc. I just personally think that wishing death upon anyone is morally wrong, again that is all based on morals and everyone is. Also, I personally think letting them rot in a prison is more satisfying then wanting them to die and not have to live with what they have done. I am so sorry all of those things have happened to you, I hope the rest of your years are filled with better outcomes.
