Lethal injection cruel and unusual?>>what's your opinion?
What purpose is served by keeping a convicted murderer on death row for 20 years fighting the inevitable? If the US Supreme Court allows the death penalty (especially for killing police and correction officers) then let’s do it. As they say in Texas, “if you kill us, we kill you.”
Corrections – Good Days or Bad Days, Work with Positivity ~ By Carl ToersBijns, Deputy Warden of Administration & Operations (Retired)
One of the worst days I ever experienced as a correctional officer was a day when the shift we lost its best shift supervisor ever. Not thinking about its impact, I made public statements that criticized the change in leadership and did this while I was at the bottom of my patience, temper and morale.
I quickly learned I shouldn’t say things out loud when I am down and frustrated and although I feel I should say or do something, it was not smart to make statements in public especially when they are tied to emotions and job frustrations.
