    They DEFINITELY would have let me die. I don't think I've ever met an inmate who liked me...lol
    If you are my supervisor and reading this...I'm calling off sick tomorrow.

      It is also a video worth practicing. It sure doesn't hurt to give the inmates a little respect here or there. Being a total jerk won't do any good, either. But remember, a little respect and kissing their *** is two different things.

        I hope Deputy Moon is OK. What I get out of this video is that it's way too easy in our career to be come complacent and this video was a real wake up call to me and put me back into focus. I mean if it wasn't for those Inmates Deputy Cook was a dead man!! He didn't stand a chance. Yes, we need to be professional at all times. We need to be firm, fair, and consistent. I, myself do not want to count on any inmate saving my a** if I can help it. I wonder why his radio was on the podium and not on him...and if his agency uses a wireless panic/ mandown...if so....where was it??? Also, this video shows why it is soooo important to be in good physical condition and why a self defense/ martial arts training is crucial to this field. Always stay vigilant and keep focued for your entire shift...it only takes a split second for some bad sh** to go down! Be safe everyone

          I agree with everything you said here but the main problem is that this is just one of the effects of Departments across the nation and their policy of eliminating security positions as a way to save the almighty dollar. You can be vigilant, firm, fair and consistant and for the most part that will serve us all well but when you have one officer watching a large group of inmates things like this can and will happen. Did you notice that no other officers appeared in that video as the inmates were "taking care of business?" I know it takes a few seconds for the response teams to arrive but this just illustrates the "being hung out to dry" philosophy of most...if not all departments.

          I'll use our numbers here in New York as an example.....in our mediums we have 1 officer watching 60 inmates in a dormitory style setting. In our yards we have 4 to 5 officers watching 200+ inmates in the summer. Maxs are worse as far as the yards go and when you escort a tier in a max...at least in the older Max joints you have 84 inmates in a group in the hall at one time. All it takes is one mentally unstable inmate or an inmate that is having a bad day or a just plain sh*tbird to do something like this. I know other states have a worse officer to inmate ratio than we do so that only makes their situation much more dangerous. We walk the tougest beat in the Country my brothers so be safe.

              Before quitting the georgia department of corrections in june of this year..I spent the last 3 years being in charge of 224 inmates in 2 different housing units..I'm glad nothing like this ever happened to me but I have to think that if inmates like you and think you are a good guy "somethings up".

                My Story

                I had an inmate known to be high ranking with one of the prison gangs tell me "if anything ever goes down in here CO you have my word you will make it out". I guess it pays to develope a level of trust from inmate to officer. I found it easy to be firm, fair and to just to keep my word.

                  Are you new to corrections? Nothing is free on the inside! I'm willing to bet he has a hussle and he may be playing you some way, some how. Don't ever trust an inmate!

                  Glad the deputy made it out OK. When I worked corrections I heard other COs say that some of the inmates will help you before your fellow COs will help you.

                  Then again inmates tend to be selfish and do things that will benefit themselves. There is something in it for them. Yeah I'm always skeptical, it keeps me on my toes.

                    Not a newbie

                    No I had about 5 years on the hill when this occured. I think it came down to respect.. I show respect but give nothing. I had alot snitch to me about inside crimes. But somehow I would forget thier name during report time. I had about 20 years of law enforcement when I finally left DOC.

                      Your right westside they probably did have a plan. In CDCR, if an inmate saves the life of any staff member they are eligible for up to an entire year of of their sentence. That is a powerful incentive to save a deputy and looks great in front of a sentencing judge. They were looking out for themselves. On the other hand I am happy they did save the deputy's life. But it is sad that the only partner the Deputy had was a CCTV camera. Welcome to modern corrections.
