Corrections Connection: This Week In Corrections

>>what's your opinion?

Have you ever heard a fellow officer say, “I’m here for the money.” I have and it took me back for a few minutes after I repeated his statement back to him and he said that the reason he stayed as a correction officer was money, nothing else. Putting his time in. If you are a career officer what chilling effect does this type of officer put on you as a professional? Do you want to be the next shift officer that replaces this CO who is there for the money and nothing else?

There’s Hope Even for Sex Offenders

Neighbors were stocking their bomb shelters with canned goods and ammunition. We lived through the Cuban Missile crisis unsure if hour by hour the human race would survive.

There was a doomsday pressure on everyone. Sen. Joseph McCarthy tapped into it to wield as much power as President Eisenhower for a brief time. His aggressive Senate hearings on Un-American activities blackballed dozens of alleged communists in labor unions and Hollywood. Even a Pulitzer Prize winner like Arthur Miller fell into temporary disgrace. full story
