    I was incarcerated at century for 13 years.
    I knew several good people who worked
    There. The staff always treated me with
    the same respect i gave them. Some of
    the inmates make it a real stressful environment
    for all, inmates and officers. I’m out now
    and working and living a great normal life.
    And its because of my time i spent at century

    So you’re saying that the officers should serve you breakfast in bed and kiss your butt accordingly. I’ve known enough people on both sides to know that it’s not as bad as the inmates say it is and that there are good staff.

    You were there for 6 yrs??? Know how the inmates can avoid what you alleged? Don’t get incarcerated, abide by the law, get and hold a job!

    Why put it on the inmates? I was there for 6 years. These officers abuse these inmate. They treat them like complete crap and if you say anything they put you in the visitation strip room and cuff you and beat you

    prisoners are treated way better than they should be. they are there for a reason. if they make trouble the officers should be able to respond in kind. they will think twice if they know it will not go down easy for them.

    There are some jobs that are a liability simply because the employer has made them that way through legislation and policies.
