This is not the whole story.The very same officer has a history on his job of threatening co workers that has been covered up for several years by the Warden and Management.If you look at that Officers profile it says he "eats,sleeps,makes fun of people and gets paid to do it".That is as honest as it gets when it comes to that Officer!He was getting paid,by the tax payers of Ohio to do nothing!Finally someone got the information(threats) to Columbus and then his employer Lebanon was forced to act and terminate him.Lebanon would have tried to hide all of this(as done in the past when it comes to this Officer)but had no choice.All the people out there that say poor guy lost his job.He made his bed now he must lye in it.He must be held accountable and management at Lebanon that have been aware of his behavior must be held accountable especially the Management that are on Face Book as his friend.

So you think he has the right to threaten co-workers and be a work place bullie? NO, it's not alright.It's called Karma.The MFer got what he deserved.Maybe the next job he has he'll know that it's not ok to harass and threaten people.
