Pulling a double…. I feel like a zombie…

Double shifts sometimes are done by COs to get a 3-day weekend or special days off. As Campi says the problem is you are so tired after doing the shifts it’s hardly worth the money. That stuff catches up with you after a while.

Well I did a double once again and sadly it is picking up the debate over money vs not being here is bouncing around in my head. I just know when I only get 4-5 hours of sleep and come back in that it will be a bad day. I have done the math before and it is in fact cheaper to hire an officer then to have vacant posts that are filled every day with over time. A new hire gets about $14.50 an hour when they make me do a double I make $30.50ish and I am one of the lowest paid officers at my institution since the merger. The employer paid benefits for a year do not cost even a quarter of my annual income.

Just watched a pretty fuuny movie called Juan Of The Dead. It is simular to Shaun Of The Dead, but in Cuba. The words are in spanish, but there is subtitles. It was a pretty good movie.

I don’t know the old sluggish zombies seem like it would be too easy to survive. Now the 28 Days Later zombies are terrifying. Hopefully there are some gamers here and they have played the Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City (or whatever the new co op from Capcom is called). Debating whether to buy it or not. Though Left 4 Dead 2 is a must have for any PC gamer with a zombie like/love.

Sounds like a plan… Bring ammo, some steaks and a habachi. Maybe a few good friends. We’ll make a lil game out of it like on dawn of the dead where a spotter picks the targets. Kinda like playing a game of 9 ball with high powered rifles. “Hey, I got Burt Renolds over here. See if you can take him out.” A couple big cans of tannerite would be fun to throw in the mix. Each zombie is worth 5 bucks, the more you knock down with one shot the bigger the prize pot. Or if we got a .50 cal we could see how many in a straight line with one round. I could keep myself entertained for months on end.

Prolly all this zombie stuff is getting the public interested in watching movies about mass attacks of these mal-aligned people. One thing I do think you have to watch in any jail or facility is the inmate who displays himself in a trance,psychotic state all the time. These goofballs are the ones who snap and attack anyone at will and are the most dangerous to supervise.

Well Irish, wouldn’t mind hanging out up there with ya. You take the long shots, I will take the intermediate shots, there won’t be any close shots. Campi, one day I would like to get with a few of my Ohio brothers and bring a few of my CD’s. They will definately open some eyes and wake up some who may have gotten complacent.

Zombie apocalypse, probably will never happen. But I got plenty of ammo and MRE’s just in case. Must say it would be kinda fun to be able to sit on the roof and pop heads with my rifle all day. Ironic as it sounds, inside a prison would probably be one of the safest places in this scenario.

Well maybe because we seeing humanity for what it can really become see zombies and its not a far leap for us to wrap our minds around. I bought a quite comical book The Zombie Survival Guide. Great read by the way. I have seen some of the pics we have handy but one of these days I would love to get my hands on copies of the ones you got commander. When I started here they walked me through the café where a staff member was put into a coma state for over a month after catching two inmates in a sex act. The staff member who was assaulted gave the tour. I got to say that opened my eyes quickly. The people who hired in after that staff member retired were done a disservice not knowing what can happen.

I, too love the zombie craze. Guess it is our messed up mentality. I even bought zombie max bullets. Hornady put them out, they come in a green box with a zombie on the front. It says, “Just in case.” .223 cal., for my AR-15. Unfortunately, I have seen Inmates at the worst on a daily basis for over 26 years. I still relive the riot, though not as often. Have some photos you might not have seen DT. Jamestown can attest to them. They are graphic, personal and up close. Taken by one of our team members directly after the riot. Pretty morbid but, lets you know what they are capable of. We used to get phone calls from other prisons, I worked 5:20pm to 6:20am 3 days a week plus mass overtime. We got a call one night at 0100 and the Captain from Toledo was telling us about one they were sending that had assaulted a staff member earlier that day. He said the Inmate was very hostile. My Captain told me to pick 3 Officers and ensure the Inmate knew where he was. Needless to say, when the van pulled up around 0400, the Inmate was yelling, and threatening to kill all of us. When he left receiving on a gurney, we wasn’t yelling any longer. Toledo’s team, was escorted out of the prison as soon as he was placed in a cage. He spit at us several times and then Mr. Fox played a major part in his rehabilitation. Then after being strip searched and dressed out, the restraints were placed on him and the holding cell door was opened, he shot out of there like his ass was on fire. After hitting the floor with over 800lbs of hillbilly on him, he tried to give up numerous times but,,,,,,,,,,, wouldn’t put his arms behind his back. He told the nurses later, all the stories about LUC he had heard were true. He stated that he didn’t want anymore trouble. When I retired 6 months later, he was still being very compliant and yes sir, no sir. Funny how that works.

So, I’m kid of obsessed with the impending zombie apocalypse and read the books, watch the movies and t.v. shows. Since that genre is really a reflection of society and the de-evolution of mankind I personally think it fits the C.O. mentality perfectly. We see the absolute worst humanity has to offer. Now I know police have to be at the scene of these horrific crimes, but we get to watch them turn into something else. I know not all inmates are monsters, but…….
