What a horrible thing to happen. No support for these people who risk their lives to keep us safe. Now the ones that are left to work will be in more danger as they are out numbered by these people that need to be locked away. The gov. has no idea what he is doing. He is putting the guards, officers, and other staff in danger. What needs to happen, people getting hurt to change things, that is messed up.

More news and information needs to be made about the risk, danger and seriousness about these cuts. These layoffs at the prisons are putting other guards, officers, other staff at risk for serious harm. Am I the only person that sees this and is worried.
