A Century Correctional Institution inmate assaulted a correctional officer recently, according to the Florida Department of Corrections.

“Staff responded appropriately, and the inmate was subdued,” FDC said.

    I wonder where he got an AK-47. I remember looking down into the barrels of three pointed at me. It inspired cooperation.

    (They decided not to kill me, in case you were wondering.)

    David for better decisions
    such as not wandering into prohibited areas

    If you think “treating people like human beings” is an unrealistic job requirement, then I’m glad you aren’t working there anymore.

    I didnt work on the compound for long at Century before I realized the inmates run that place. I decided as a TEA this is not for me. You couldn’t pay me enough to deal with the trash that is in that place. Of course the FDC wants you treat them like people but they lost that right. They are in that dump for a reason and trust me 95% of them will take from you if given another chance too. If you are looking to work there, DONT!

    When they have no greater punishment than Life in Prison, they have nothing to lose.
