    It’s hard to staff a prison when no one wants to work. The staff that are employed get tired, run down, and no light at the end of the tunnel as to when they will get more help. Essential workers are tired and need rest or this type of thing will continue or even get worse.

    What, is Fountain CI having an Open House? These inmates are walking out about once a week. Doesn’t anyone work there anymore? If they do, they darn sure aren’t doing their job. This dude looks like Walking Dead. Yikes.
