Topic: The Club House / Professional Gunfighters?

Sergeant Major,

Well said! I never get tired of the amusement of those who want to make themselves into big shots and fail to look after their Brothers/Sisters and this noble profession. I am constantly amazed at the ego that a great many of these folks have. These people are trying to impress those around them, like they are some form of Robocop. Tackleberry is more like it. I once met a Correctional Officer that purchased (With his own money) a level 6 tactical vest and all of the accoutrements. Riggsville’s comments remind me of this now unemployed Robocop.

Regardless, I am still proud to call Corrections a passion and fellow employee’s Brothers and Sisters.

Topic: The Club House / Professional Gunfighters?

Shakey,

I agree with some of your points. The perceptions that most people outside of our profession have of a Correctional Professionalism is seriously tarnished by the way we are portrayed. In part by statements made by the people on this blog. I understand that a lot of it is education, and as you said Shakey, some of the employees can’t even spell gun, let alone be responsible for making a professional decision about “Shoot-Don’t Shoot”. I have been trying for 29 years now to change the way we are viewed and the level of training and education required for certain positions. I think we have come a long way since 1980 and we still, unfortunately have a great distance to go. I am nonetheless, unwaivering in my committment to and pride of, the Correctional Professionals, I call Brothers and Sisters.

Mr. Riggsville,

Re-read your last response and then tell me that your not my best example for this debate. Your spelling is horrible and you try to use dramtaics to support your position. I am uninterested in visiting your fictious graves. What do you mean “Statically, Corrections Officers do not Enguage in gunfights”? You have puzzeled me and I am certain everyone who has attempted to read your post. I could go back through your previous posts and determine the answer to this question, however, I am going to ask you. What state DOC do you work for? Looking forward to your reply.

Oh My God! riggsville, I can only hope that you are a new correctional employee and you are still on probation and your management team has identified you as someone who should seek the services of the EAP. The statements that you made have sent shivers up my spine. I assure you, that you will never in your (Soon to be short) career engage anyone in a gunfight. I am proud of the correctional professionals that I have had the distinct honor of working with and call them brothers/sisters. You, unfortunatley are not part of that society. I hope for your own good that you either a) Reconsider your profession or b) Seek professional help that will assist you in growing in a professional and mautre way. Either way, your comments do not represent the thoughts or ideas of the modern professional correctional employee.
