Why would anyone be a prison officer?

OOOSH YEAH

I know it sounds horrible, but why not if that's what they choose? I know it may upset some on here, and I apologise if anyone finds my views offensive, but I am a big believer in punishment over rehabilitation.

Again.. Don't do the crime if you cannot do the time.
Can’t happen though. You ignore it and you end up in there with them. Your duties are to ensure they’re safe. Their punishment is being in there.
 
I was having a conversation with a P.O from Wakefield Prison a couple of years ago and he said that there were 30 new recruits posted to HMP Armley in Leeds.

Within 6 months 27 of them had resigned due to the nature of the job
Unsurprising really, Spam.
My mate is a P.O in Manchester (not Strangeways)
He loves the job, but I have no idea, how long he'll stick it out for.

perhaps some see it as a way to try to help people and get them on the right path.
perhaps some simply want to put food on the table.
perhaps some see it as a steady job and good future prospects.

Yeah that’s fair enough. I wasn’t mocking them it was more that I admire that they can handle it. I certainly couldn’t it would get me down.

Has anyone made any prison hooch?

I’m tempted to brew some in my shed.

had it a couple of times. a couple of the lads thought themselves as some sort of brewing experts :lol:

after tea on a Friday, the "slag's head" :lol: was open for business

settle in for the night, cooking some food, playing pool and watching the tele and talking shite, whilst the live wires got on the hooch. saw a couple of great kick offs when they were pissed. absolutely no sense between them.
Would you be a screw for 40k?
he'd be wrapped up in and mattress and kicked down the landing :lol:

Course I would. I’d be a fish out of water. Never been in trouble in my life, never been to jail and not interested in fighting and haven’t done gear since I was a kid. I’d be bored shitless and taken advantage of within minutes.
