Correctional Officers In Need of Correction: April 2010

Being a correctional officer is a tough, often thankless job.  Good correctional officers rarely get the recognition of achievement that others who excel in their job, just the grief of having to deal with a bunch of dangerous felons who could seriously injure or kill them if given the opportunity.  For those who go through their career in a professional, accountable manner, we salute you.


Lately, we have been discussing the grievance of an inmate at the Oaks Correctional Facility up north.  I personally know a former CO from that facility who I believe is beyond reproach, he has even hinted at a 'bad situation' leading to his decision to leave there.  I have sent an even-handed letter to that facility about the prisoner's grievance and have received no response over the last month. 


Lately, we have had a new member join who is solidly behind the CO charged with ethical lapses by the inmate, who he has yet to attribute any rights to.  This member has claimed to be a CO himself, and he feels the inmate is lying, and the CO involved is an upstanding CO.  He may very well be right.  The certainty of this member in the innocence of the CO, had me asking why. 


I Googled "Correctional Officer arrested" in Google News and came up with many results.  Here are just a few that came up occuring in April of 2010.

I cannot prove or disprove it Stan, that is why we have investigations, preferably by someone without a conflicy of interest. The statement, the questionable reputation of Oaks, and the refusal to answer inquiry has me concerned, very concerned, about this facility and Officer Fink.

As far as backing my position up with proof, let's see you back your Stan-by position that a CO is above reproach with some proof. I have shown counterexamples in the news for the first couple weeks of April, do you need more?

Prove your position: why don't we need an investigation of the situation? Oh, I forget, you don't answer questions yourself.
You already answer your own question instead of answering my question you just keep asking another question. Put your money where your mouth is file a F.O.I. for the entire case, in fact also file the same for the inmate's Disciplinary history might be interesting. Oooooh I forgot you are afraid to ever since L.T. laid the smack down on you for being the poor guy who dared to complain for running a stop sign and getting a ticket.
Aquaman seems to have some obsession with me,kind of like a stalker.XLFD makes a comment about him being a class act.How wrong can you be.He's an act all right,but remove the "cl".Some do their homework is right aquaman.All one has to do is talk to a few people to know what a true jerk you are.And I'm not talking about people on these forums.You don't have any idea who I am,but assume you do.If you met me on the street you wouldn't have any idea who I was.Yet you keep making your snide little remarks about me on here.Grow up.I've got a suggestion for you become educated not just opinionated.
Welcome back, Barry. All one has to do is read your posts to know what a true jerk you are.
Thanks Mr. whiner XLFD.How many forums did you go to to cry about getting a ticket.And how many avatars did you infiltrate forums with.I have signed up on this forum one time only,using only one name.So before you go calling me a jerk,look in the mirror.All the times you had people supposedly invading your precious little forum,it was probably you.That way you keep your minions looking to you to be the hero.What a joke you are.
I kinda figured out XLFD was the guy who could not stop at a stop sign then raised holy hell because he could not get his way. I think it is a sign of the times when a grown man can't just stand up and say yea I screwed up to heck with it!
The only one I see infiltrating other forums, in disguised names, stalking if you will, is you stan...barry.....behrry. Insults and inuendo does not make your case. XLFD did a great job exposing the type of ex-CO you were, look the other way, and follow accepted procedure, w/o regard to professionalism. Snide remarks are your writing type signature, not mine, Clyde.
Stan is not Barry,and Barry is not behr,so maybe you should get a clue.Should I start calling you edie or dave or xlfd Take your own advice and stop with the insults and inuendo,but I guess your not mature enough for that.Now come back with some childish blather and prove my point
I am sorry for you but there is only one stan thats me and I am no one else. I could post under other names but why should I when I can set you up like a large mouth bass every time I post. What did you get bored when you realized I basically put you to bed with out supper? By the way how old are you anyway, I just don't not want to be accused of picking on a minor here by other members.
You were right, Aq, Barry and Stansayhi are one and the same person. Stan does not have 15 seconds of experience in Corrections, just like our favorite Souper lacks any experience on the police force. I would believe them if they said they were 15th level Paladins with two Holy Avenger swords and a warhorse, before what they have said here in this forum.

I do not know how these forums work but you are a lazy admin it should be very easy to check the log in ISPs to prove Barry and I are not the same but you cannot do that because you are afraid of what you will find. It is no different when it comes to using the F.O.I. act to prove your point with that inmate. You are too lazy to do itself because it might cause you some money. Too bad you cannot prove your point, just like Aquaman can't ever get a good job and lives to watch prison movies from the 60's
Barry I have a funny feeling we might be dealing with one of his abnormal kids that uses his dad's aquaman avatar. Who in their right mind would watch a 1960's prison movie then call them self a expert on prisons? But then he did see chain gangs in Georgia when he drove with his family down there right?
