Y'all might want to do some research on the conditions existing in the federal prison system. The big ones are funding and a critical shortage in staff, primarily COs. They are having a hell of a time recruiting COs to replace those who retire, resign, or quit for a better job. Many COs are working continuous overtime to take up the slack, some as much a 80 hours a week.
It ain't a pretty picture.
You know, for a fact, the CO's were working 80 + hours ? Sounds like you've fallen for the "media blurb" Where are your FACTS ?
