The same way I was wronged by 3 animals who attacked my wife and I, I would never treat you with the hate that I have for them, I have never thrown my waste at an officer so why treat me as if I have? Your jobs are FAR from easy I know this and I know you deal with very very dangerous individuals but I stand by my statement that a lot of officer do not distinguish between those that need to be treated very harshly and those that don't and seem to take pleasure in brandishing the power they have. I am almost positive that you will know this is very true, if you don't then you are very good at seeing what you want to see my friend. Again can I say this isn't a blanket statement.
You have failed to take my post as it was intended. I neither condemn you nor do I pat you on the back. Please refer back to my post. We all deal with all kinds of people, on both sides of the wire. I make no excuses for unprofessional conduct by Prison Officers, just as I congratulate no prisoner on acting as any human being should, and I certainly make no apology for the service I render.
Your posts seem to me to indicate a level of frustration and resentment against Prison Officers who have acted toward you in a manner that is not to your liking, a position which is probably valid from your point of view and which I will not dispute- You were there- I was not.
You are asking me to 'Show you the respect you showed me', and I will again point out that You were there- I Was Not. I would submit to you, sir, that it is you who are engaging in generalities. You neither know me nor are you familiar with my career or management style.
It sounds to me as though it is You who is beating the dead horse here trying to force someone to cough up something in the way of an apology for the way you were treated, or make a blanket statement that "Oh yes, there are many, many bad bad Prison Officers and you were wronged! We are so, so sorry!" You are barking up the wrong tree. What you are trolling for is akin to complaining to Mercedes Benz because your BMW has bad seats. Benz doesn't care, because it isn't their fault.
From your posts, it sounds as though, if taken at face value, that you got a raw deal and then had a less than satisfying stretch in jail. That is most unfortunate for you and your family. I only hope that as you move past that difficult time that you recover the best parts of the life you had before it was interrupted by this incident and the consequences thereof.
To err is human. To blame someone else shows management potential.
