  • NY inmate separates guards fighting over food

    BUFFALO, N.Y. – Talk about a role-reversal: Two New York jail guards are in trouble after an inmate stepped in to break up their fight over food.

    Erie County Undersheriff Mark Wipperman says both corrections officers are suspended with pay after what he calls an "embarrassment."

    The inmate required medical attention but Wipperman says privacy laws prevent him from disclosing his injuries. He says the inmate got between the unarmed guards because he didn't want either to get fired.

    He wouldn't confirm a Buffalo News report that the April 21 bout started over a bag of chips. It happened at Erie County Correctional Facility in a dorm-like building.

    Wipperman identified the officers as Lawrence Mule, a 26-year veteran, and James Conlin, who was hired 29 years ago. A message with the officers' union wasn't immediately returned.

    I expected to read that it was between two hotheaded young rookies, not 25+ year vets. I'm sure their commander was absolutely thrilled when he saw the tape.

        Now that is just sad. Thugs fight over food, I just don't understand two COs doing this.

          I've always said this when people fight over something stupid there's usually an underlying issue between them and this was just the boiling point.

            I don't think I have ever eaten anything in a prison that I would fight over.

              Unless they were salt and vinegar chips, I see no point in fighting.

                Where I work, some of the old vets have grudges against each other for crap that happened 10+ years prior.

                        apologies ahead of time to the good CO's on this board but honestly, where I am from, there ain't much difference between county CO's and inmates.
