The guards were playing cards or testing the julip or in the corner kissing her co-worker.Perhaps it was set up. Do you hear of killings and deaths in other prisons like you do at Northeast?I personally do not want that going on in my work-place.I feel the Warden and some of these Officers needs to be replaced.

Maybe all of you need to read innonence Project.
There are over 10% of inmates in prisonsthat
are innonence and are being freed everyday.I have
a loved one in prison at Mountain City Tn.He was
railroaded because they were to lazy to look in to
it.Let them start a chain gang like AZ has.Then
maybe the ones that don't do like they're suppose
to would not be inside causing trouble.I heard they
were drinking.Where did they get it and why did the guards take so long to get there.Maybe they
need to be punished too.

I am not trying to say anyone is wrong. I have a fiancee in north east. Things like this happen in prison. You wouldn't believe what the people in there can get their hands on through other people, through visits, and how many men have been in there so many years, that they probably know how to make a weapon out of a damn banana. Yes, the guards should have been there, and yes, I am freightened for Dennis. You just don't see the whole picture until you have been in there. A lot of guys carry what you call "shanks". These are anything made into a sharp object, intended for stabbing people to death, or just defending themselves. Just saying, it could have been very quick.

People im no guard iam a professional. A corrections officer. And trust me the inmates need correction every day. Unfortunately there are gonna be things they will get past the officer. They are cunning! And most of all they are criminals rapist murderers etc. The ones that are there and are innocent well they have to fight the system. As an c.o. We do not have the time to figure that out nor is it our job.

as a former corrections office I can tell you 99% of all fights stabbings ect are planned to use time to their advantage such as when officers are at the most distance away. they know who is on shift each and every day, they know you better then your family do, so unless something is planned to happen where officers are close (which by the way is a diversion as to what is really happening and used to keep the officers busy) other wise all fight stabbings and such happen away from the eyes of officers until they want you to know about it, by then it is to late and already over. dont get me wrong to many officers do do the wrong things such as stuff with co workers and it happens every day, but the majority dont and do a good job is a situation where the inmates let the officers think their in charge which if any one that has ever worked inside a prison can tell you the officers are hopelessly outnumbered and it would be a cake walk to actually take the place over if the inmates wished even if they called in every officer ever listed (trust me 150 officers max vs 2000 inmates ya you get the pic) average pod life is 100 plus inmates in the pod active vs at most 2 officers who carry only a can of mace each a radio each and a par of handcuffs each, hum so if the inmates want you occupied as something else happens this is easy done, if they want you to know you will if not you wont plain and simple. if a person has a mark on their head in prison unless one sniches (and plans to live the rest of their prison live in whats refered as the chicken coop then they are dead as well) there is no hiding spots an inmate cant find no cell something cant be gotten into for good or bad, 99% of all inmate do have a shank or worse, drugs are easy to get as are other things. these men and women are smart have plenty of time to plan and get the things they need to make it happen. so before you blame an officer for not being there walk a week in their shoes and see. (by they way it take an average if 25 seconds to run from the yard to the closest unit at necx and the average street fight last 4 seconds before ending in some way so go figure 1 fight with a death easy to do in under 5 to 10 seconds and plenty of time to hide the shank all befoer you even see the officer running up the hill so dont down the ones doing a job others are not willing to do)
