Corrections Connection: This Week In Corrections


Tasers in the Jail?

>>what's your opinion?

I would love to see the X-26 inside the prison. Granted I am not in a county jail. I am in a state prison but I think just the sight of a taser would effectivly resolve a lot of issues that we face an a daily basis. Right now we have PR-24’s, OC and a L8 gas launcher. We also have less lethal shotguns with appropriate rounds but all this, with the exception of OC, is used in extream situations. I think a taser would be a good alternative. full thread


From Chicken Legs to Thunder Thighs...and Everything In Between

By Bryan Avila, TDCJ Correctional Training Instructor - Sergeant of Correctional Officers
Hey, all of our bodies are different. Some of us work on them and some of us don't. We can tell the difference just by looking at our bodies (and those of the person next to us). We discriminate against our bodies and compare them amongst ourselves, even if we don't say anything (but boy, we sure do think it!)

There are things that do not discriminate no matter what you do. No matter what you look like, it will treat you just the same. Race plays no part in its decision. Culture plays no part in its decision. Gender plays no part in its decision. Neither sexual orientation, religion nor age plays a part in its decision. One of these non-discriminatory things is a bullet. full story
