    A dept of corrections Prison Guard makes a very good living.

    The pay is excellent, all you need is the guts to work in a Prison. You can retire at age 50 with a nice pension & benefits.

    Some officers make as much as $72.00 when on overtime. By the way, there is all the overtime you want on this job. Lot’s of 12hr days.

    Yes, there are a lot of risks on the job. Everyday could be your last. You can get stabbed, beaten or strangled in a heartbeat.

    It’s a very dangerous environment……….

    So why risk it by breaking the rules………

    Hopefully this Guard is innocent!

    ALL THE COMMENTS MADE ARE OUT OF LACK OF KNOWLEDGE & OR IGNORANCE. YOU NEVER KNOW WHY A PERSON MAKES POOR DECISIONS BUT THEY ARE CALLED MISTAKES DUH!!! WE ARE ALL BORN IN SIN. I AM SURE EVERY ONE HAS MADE A MISTAKE OR TWO IN THEIR LIVES. JUST BECAUSE HE HAD A GOOD CAREER & A HIGH POSITION DOE NOT MAKE HIS MISTAKES ANY GREATER THAN OTHERS. IIIIF HE IS EVEN GUILTY!!! WHO ARE YOU TO JUDGE LET GOD DO HIS JOB!!! I AM SURE YOU ALL HAVE A FEW SECRETS OR SKELETONS IN YOUR CLOSET YOU NEED TO CLEAN UP. FOCUS ON YOUR LIVES & CLEAN UP ALL YOUR DIRTY! HAVE A BLESSED DAY!

    Not really, Jade, a mistake is something you make unwittingly. I’m fairly certain he knew exactly what he was doing. We call that a ‘bad choice’… and it doesn’t matter why he did it.

    Oh, and what makes you think there’s a God?

  8. Mark says:

    “the Blogger” is totally ignorant about prison and does not use the correct prison verbiage or have his facts strait so we know he has never bin in or worked in a prison. Jade was closer to being correct. It is a good thing that Coma did not get bail because he is safe were he is. Coma put all of our lives at risk and gave the media pukes more amo to bad mouth correctional professionals most of whom would never give an inmate anything he didn’t have to. I say Jade was closer to correct because we used to be required to read books like ‘Games Criminals Play’ or ‘Anatomy of A Setup”. reading and re-reading these books have saved me a few times threw the years. Coma probably started with a small mistake that got bigger and he was in over his head trapped before he knew it. That is how it usually happens. The cons are good at conning to get what they want. Last point. Why do the media pukes always call us guards? They don’t use the “N” word to save type. The media pukes are OK with using demeaning, disrespectful term toward us. They refuse to recognize that (except Coma) we are professional Peace Officers. Lets hear the media pukes call the Highway Patrol or local police “the pigs” or some other derogatory term and see what happens.

    This is very surprising to hear, especially when I’ve came in personal contact with him while visiting my husband.
