This article is very accurate. I am the father of the Correctional Officer, mentioned in the article. (The Correctional Officer who had his jaw shattered).
I appreciate the opportunity to post on your web site. I understand that I can not post a web site link.
We have started a group, "Friends and Family of Correctional Officers" USP - Atwater.
We are actively trying to get the Federal Bureau of Prisons, to change their policies and issue - stab resistant vests, non-lethal equipment, and provide minimum manning in the housing units. Yes, the ratio is 100+ to 1 in the housing units, today. This is true at all Federal Correctional Institutions across the nation. The BOP must change.
If you google our name, Friends and Family of Correctional Officers , you will come across our web site. I also have signed up on this web site, allowing personal emails to be sent to me directly.
We need your help !! The publics help !!
