We have three girls, one of them was anti gun, and is just now coming around on the issue. I know strange huh..(takes after her mother) ((sshhhh)).. She's the ultimate mother to our g-kids, and smart enough to marry a hunter, who's also a great guy, so I've (pretty much) let it go and she is coming around on the issue..

After the first child, and when she was at the "height' of the whole "anti" thing they come up for thier first visit after the birth of our grandchild.. Deal is we have a truce from years ago about the gun thing, and they stay outa sight outa mind.. She asked me once while she was pregnant that i make sure all the weapons were child proofed.. actually she was pretty sweet about it.. "dad, i know you will keep all your guns safe from the baby"..

So (my heart is picking up speed as im telling you guys this) thier up for the first visit.. She's sitting on the sofa with the baby on her lap, and i realize that i can see the grip of my little freedom arms 22 sticking out from under the sofa cushion.. Gloria's all cooing over the baby.. and i'm thinking .. OK!.. my life as i knew it is about to end.. Daughter has a temp.. Wife has a temp... I've gota fuck'n gun (forgivemelord) sticking out of my sofa..Honestly had no idea it had fallen out of my pocket.. The next 15 min were the longest of my life.. I'm like some macho Lucy out of a 50's TV sitcom.. They finally decide to get up and go into the spare bed room.. and i literally fell against the son-n-law, who has laughed and kidded me about this every since.. Never have gotten up the courage to tell Gloria she almost lost her first grandchild on the first visit (Bob... im giv'n ya a look!) So if ya gota chuckle outa old gregs stupid trick credit runs for bringing up the memory with his comment about the "dispute".

You know us correctional officers have to stick together. Damned detainee ops. Geez. but it's 12 hour shifts, 4 on, 2 off. Guess it could be worse. At least I get to live on an island during the year some are predicting may be the worst hurricane season in recent years with a prison full of people who are there specifically because they were trying to or did kill Americans. See? The American soldier has the capacity to bitch about absolutely ANYTHING.

runs... prison stuff..

least your group of corrections pro's dont wind up "mixing" with the enemy.. sheessh at least twice a year we'd terminate staff for conduct with an inmate.. and im talking on a unit level.. figure an average of 5 units per prison, 10 prisons in the state, and 100 a year.. That was job one for a supervisor believe it or not.. you know how it goes, staff get isolated from other staff, and pretty soon they start mixing up thier loyalties..thats NEVER going to be something you have to worry about..

Hey i read your comment about my "hi tech" prison life.. Not me brother.. your right some units have all the technology, and actually i was part of an electronic monitor system for a bit (didn't work in it's original form).. I always worked the open yards where its you and the inmate.. The staff in the super max where inmates are locked down 23 hrs a day are only about a 10th of our work force, and sorta sad thier cannon fodder.. If they have the "stuff" to work on an open yard we rotate them out to work with inmates on the 1 per 50 average thats real world.. Some stay but most get sick of the boredom and overwork of lockdown and attrition is real high.. afraid a lot of our super max macho guys sorta pee thier pants when they have to get out and work on open yards..See it all the time when for the first time its not two staff on one restrained inmate, but one on an open yard of up to 100.. Those are my boys and girls.. love and miss em..

It says two staff per detainee during an intra-camp move, and four staff per detainee in an intercamp move. There's a minimum of one cell search every three minutes with each cell being searched at least once in a 24 hour period. I've been told that as a SSG, I'll be in a control room with the computer terminal opening cell doors and directing detainee movements. They say verbal and physical assaults are a daily thing. I'm not sure how well I'd handle that, a dirty fuckin raghead putting his hands or bodily fluids on me. I definitely won't be allowed to respond in Gitmo the way I would in Iraq. I doubt I'll even be able to take a 550 cord and wire hogtie kit with me. I'm already dreading it a bit because I HATE detainee ops. I'd much rather deal with direct fire and IEDs than search their nasty asses and have to put up with their fuckin whining and bitching. If we had a better marksmanship training program in the military, Gitmo wouldn't need to exist.

Everything is filmed these days so you dont have mug squads like the old days.. That's what held the "throwers" down.. Had to be careful about it, and i always made sure staff kept the moral high ground are your no better than a bully.. but if done right it worked !!.. and i promise you ive been in on more than one "mugging".. Once the cameras came on line the Mug squads became a thing of the past, and the throwers ruled till we came up with all plexiglas.

Here again because of custody levels i didn't work much with those guys.. hated the lock down stuff where the inmate was always secured.. cameras watching every move.. two staff on an inmate who's always secured.. Nope no fun..

I worked the women's unit three or four times while under use of force investigations, which was SOP .. couldn't believe it the first time.. i had heard stories of course, but they are far and away the most fun.. three or four fights a day.. amazing how they rock and roll much more than the men.. To funny.. throw just as much ink, and have twice the number of black eyes. We used the universal IMS (incident management system) and would have one a day on a male yard and three to four on a female yard.. No self respect either.. literally sit in mud..
