Busy dang night. Crazy. I suspect it must be the heat.
Last time I was on the yard I got to ride around in the cart and let my officers handle all of the work, which was just routine stuff.
Tonight I got to ride around on the cart but I spent all of the time running from one place to another. And I was lucky if I had one officer on the yard because the rest of them were busy too.
Between us and B-side I believe we locked up eight or nine offenders tonight for various things. One for administrative protective custody. One for refusing to work. One for interfering with count. Two for "cheeking" their medications, probably with intent to sell them on the yard. Two for a fight that they both denied having. And I think two more for something else.
I didn't get all of the information, as I was busy doing other things. I got to read five conduct violations. Three in medical, one in three house (Meatball on the loose) and one down in the Hive for Sgt Miz P.
The only good thing about it was I had good help on the yard to keep me straight and posted about what was going on. That and they gave us a new golf cart that runs like a top and actually has brakes. Not brand new, but in real good shape. It ran so good I had to ride the brakes to keep from running over inmates on the yard.
It was a good night. Busy like crazy, but good.
None of us got hurt and we all got to go home at the end of the night.
Chalk that one up in the "win" column.
Wednesday is going to be Friendship Day and National Raspberry Cream Pie Day.
Go bust a friend in the mush with a raspberry cream pie and say it's from me.
