    A disciplinary report isn’t just a slap on the risk. It will result in a stint in solitary confinement or more time added on to his 14 yr sentence. Disciplinary report makes it sound like a piece of paper, but 60, 90 or 180 days in the hole isn’t exactly a vacation.

    I agree with Nick, If the old crew were back in charge this would not have been going on. Schwarz might have been a jerk, but you didn’t have to worry about putting up with any inmate mess when he was in charge. Where is Gaskin, Schwarz, Moody and the real bosses at??? Bring them back!!!!!!!

    The state is so underfunded, they fire employees for the simplest reason. Most of the employees that work there are new and dont have the repor with the inmates as tough or….anything. they are totally green. If they paid more then maybe people would stay.

    The State of Florida has made doing the job of a correction officer impossible. If you actually do the job, the right way, you can and will be sued by the inmates and will be prosecuted. If a inmate assaults you, he is given a discipline report, or nothing. If you defend yourself, you will be arrested. It’s not the prison, it’s the flu legislation that makes these impossible rules that will and have contributed to the death of Officers

    It’s not that stuff like this didn’t happen, the media just didn’t have access so that it could be reported.

    It seems like every time you read this, something is happening at the prison. What happened to controlling the bad guys. This stuff did not happen 5 or 6 years ago when the old guard was there. The state needs to hire some help or get some new bosses before one of these thugs gets loose and kills someones kid or something.

    A disciplinary report? Are you kidding? What a joke.
