    I Saved A Man's Life Today

    Well, it wasn't just me, but, I was a part of it.

    You know, I post lots of bad stuff about being a Corrections Officer...And they are all true. I paint a picture...That's true. It's savage, and it's dangerous. Manipulitave..Machivellian...

    Sometimes, good things happen. Or maybe it's not so good. Who knows? It's the bizzaro world I inhabit. We got an emergency call on the radio today. We had a crook hanging himself. The officers on the pod did a great job in both alerting us and helping to save this drain on society's life. I was the first responder in and I grabbed a leg and we held the guy up while he was cut down.

    He's now naked and alone in 10 West with a suicide blanket as his sole companion.

    The Warden won't give us pats on the back even though when we had one die last year, he was up them with a microscope.
    You won't read about it in the papers; "Alert Prison Gaurds Stop Suicide"

    *Shrugs*

    I'm perfect for working in a prison. It all makes sense to me.

    Thanks Shifty!

    Definitely a tricky situation with saving a guy's life whose life probably isn't actually worth saving

    My Father was a corrections officer for many years, one of my regrets is that I never really discussed what life was like on the job for him before he died. I would have loved to hear some stories but I'm sure he didn't want us knowing what was really going on in the prison.

    Nice job Goon.

    You did the right thing Goon, and like you said a deed like this goes by without anyone making a huge deal out of it, but if he had died the Warden would have been all over your ***.

    Does it make me a bad person to say that I'd have just watched the loser twist, jerk, & twitch?
