    His head should have bounced off the floor several times.

    I have no idea what the penalty is for assaulting a prison employee  . Whatever it is, it should be so punitive that inmates wouldn’t even think about it. Thank God the inmate was not injured, that’s a relief.

       My money is on no extra jail time. It will ether run concurrent with his present sentence or it will be dismissed all together. The taxpayers of Maine can’t afford to keep people in jail any longer than necessary.

    People, please don’t think that I am a chauvinist, but I have always believed that
    women inmates should be supervised by woman and men inmates should be
    supervised by men.  A man’s strength, in most cases, is superior to a woman, so 
    in my humble opinion, she is put in a dangerous situation. On the flip side, Men 
    should not be around female inmates in these circumstances.  I think you all
     know where I am going with this.

      Nothing chauvinist about it: just good common sense.

      I know where you are going with it and you don’t have a clue. You need to get over yourself. A woman can do just as good of a job as any man can do if not better. I work with some women that I would rather have watching my back than any man.

        I never said a woman cannot do as good of a job as a man can.  Where did you read that?  I simply know that men are overall stronger than woman (God’s design) and because of that a male inmate who is out of his mind can seriously hurt a woman.  We read about men seriously assaulting woman all the time, yet it’s not as often we read about women assaulting men.

         I would not want my wife in this situation, and my wife agrees with me.  I just hate seeing women jail/prison guards having to supervise men, that’s all.  It’s just my opinion.

        Maybe you should get over yourself.

    If I was Sgt. Jill, I’d start developing blinding headaches and PTSD and never, ever work another day in my life.

      Agreed but, the officer would than have probably been charged with cruel and unusual punishment to a prisoner.

    I don’t know how anybody can be charged when it’s a free for all.Some of them guards think they have more power than God and that is why they are in that kind of job. Pelinsky, a guard at the HCJ is one of them. Som e start off with good intentions I’m sure,  but you can watch their heads slowly swell. Not all imates are convicts, some just made a mistake. That is the peril of being human…..let the fire works begin..
