More blood on Corrections hands!

Corrections is an inherently dangerous job- unless you are management, of course.


There is one person who could have used the stab-resistant vests that are freely available on the market.

That Corrections management continues to procrastinate over purchasing. This was being talked about when I was in Corrections four bloody years ago!

This sort of kit has been out there for years and for police and corrections not to have it is, IMNSHO, criminally negligent. After all, if a worker was injured due to lack of safety boots, hard hat or eye protection, OSH would be down on them like a ton of bricks.

But when the employer is the government, it seem that anything goes.

And don't get me started on the scandalous state of our military's equipment...
