My son is there for theft.He wrote and told me about this.He said the guard spit in the inmates face and hit him twice.I think when someone spits on you and hits you,instincts take over and you just fight back.This young man did not deserve to die.The guards had the upper hand of course.I cannot understand why anyone would think it's ok that they killed this guy.He was in there on a drug crarge,he had not hurt anyone and I hope each guard involved in his killing pays for it.I worry that my son will be next.I'm certain that if they spit on my son and hit him,that he will want to fight back.I just hope it dont happen.My son said they dont get yard time now and they get walked to and from chow because of the beating.I hope GOD watches over all the inmates there and everywhere.Noone has the right to kill...

My son was incarcerated there when all this took place. He said the male guards body slamed from his cot and there were 3 guards involved. He broke free and ran into the yard. The guards locked all dorms so no one could help the inmate. I thank God that his brother, who is there, wasn't able to see what was happening to his brother. The last my son heard was the shift supervisor was being brought up on charges and the 6 guards were fired. The female guard is still there. Has anyone heard if the 6 guards will be charged with anything? I need an update for my son. I pray for all the inmates still there and the family of the inmate that died.

I was in Ventress when this happened. Most of the reports you read make Rocrast (the deceased) look like the bad guy. Some say he sexually assaulted her by masturbating on his bed, other say that he hit her. Truth is, in the prison system, they give men boxers with an open hole in front. Nothing to hold it closed. When a man is asleep he often gets an erection. Rocrast was in D dorm on his bed asleep. he was wearing his boxers but that was all because it was hot. August in a metal building with over 100 other guys and no Air conditioning. He got an erection while asleep, and the female officer saw it. It escalated from there. One officer tried to help the inmate, but in the end, Rocrast was killed. The bad thing is that this happens at other prisons, and nothing is being done about it simply because DOC officials cover it up, make the inmate look like the bad guy to appease the public, and send the officers to work at another facility so they can do it again. I have heard, but cannot verify, the Lieutenant and 6 other officers were charged, but I don't know with what. At least 2 I know were charged with murder.
no sympathy for inmates

He shouldn't have been in prison and this wouldn't have happened to him. That should be the way a free society views this not with sympathy and compassion. The victims of the inmate didn't get sympathy when she was raped tortured and abused. The real victims are the officers who lost jobs and are away from their families because a reject of society, piece of trash, worthless inmate died. So what no big deal a new inmate was assigned to his empty bed the next day like nothing happened. The tragedy is the suffering the officers and their families have had to endure. Good honest hardworking citizens like these officers are rare but criminals and this inmate trash are plentiful!! If you overly concerned parents would discipline them when they are little we wouldn't have to do it for you when they're grown!! But u lazy sorry parents are just my job security society will continue to send me its trash to be disciplined and recycled back to it to restart the process.
