I,m with debby. I think all tower guards should be required to fire a warning shot. while most employees of the DOC are decent, hardworking and compassionate people, there are those who are power hungry and trigger happy. I know that often an inmate may not have a choice but to fight another inmate, but isnt there another way? Would it really be better for a guard to kill an inmate?My son is there for a non-violent crime and I worry and pray for his safety every day.
