Excuse me while I rant a little here. I hope you don't mind.
I AM SICK AND FREAKING TIRED OF THE STATE CODDLING THESE KNUCKLEHEADS AND TREATING THEM LIKE THEY ARE JUST ERRANT CHILDREN!!! THEY ARE ADULTS AND SOME OF THE ARE PROVEN TO BE DANGEROUS SO WHY CAN'T WE TREAT THEM LIKE THE ANIMALS THEY ACT LIKE?
Okay.... That got some of it off my chest. Sometimes I just get a little fed up with the fact that these little snits have more rights that we do.
And I am really tired of "councilors" and "caseworkers" and "psychologists" who buy their sob stories and let them get away with anything with little more than a slap on the wrist.
We just got some idiot in today off of the bus. Supposed to be going to a 180 day drug treatment program. Last time he was here, about a year ago, he assaulted two of our staff (one who is a very good friend of mine) and they are referring him for prosecution for those assaults. My friend Z got kicked in the head and suffered a ruptured disc in his neck. He was in pain for months and is just now able to turn his head about 30% of the amount he used to.
This little creep isn't scheduled to get out for a few more years and if they find him guilty on these assaults he will be facing another ten to twenty years in prison. So they send him back here into a program with an open bay type living arrangement to get counseling on his drug problem. because some judge somewhere stipulated that he had to have it in order to get out early.
That is what that drug treatment program is all about. If they complete it, it looks better to the parole board and they might get an early out date.
Don't they imagine that in twenty years he will have forgotten all he may learn in this program? Why not wait fifteen more years and then send him? This punk has already proved that he's a dangerous snaphole and doesn't need to be out in the general public, let alone in a more relaxed setting like the treatment program.
Why are they putting more staff members in jeopardy?
And don't get me started about that little cockroach Shmelvin! Not long ago he racked up five staff assaults in one week. And they let him out early because he's "troubled". Every single time he gets locked up they let him back out again due to his "mental condition". Just last week they caught him and his cellie.... Well, I won't ick you out with the details, but the term for it is "Sexual Misconduct". They locked him up on Saturday. Anybody else would do at least 30 days down in the Hive. Today he was back on the hill again.
AAAAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGH! THAT SNIT PISSES ME OFF! WHY THE HECK DO WE EVEN TRY TO KEEP ORDER AND DISCIPLINE IF THEY ARE JUST GOING TO CUT OUR LEGS OUT FROM UNDERNEATH US?
Sometimes this job is really really frustrating.
I think I just need to take a chill pill and relax. Maybe drink a beer or something. I dunno.
Anyway, thanks for putting up with my little temper tantrum. Just needed to unload a bit of baggage. And I'm the only one awake here right now.
Maybe I should just go check the calendar. Friday (Yayy, Friday!) will be National Yo-Yo Day. Oh yeah. I got hundreds of yo-yo's to play with. It will also be Ball Point Pen Day and Iced Tea Day.
Sounds like a good basis for one heck of a party, eh?
