  1. Oh, how very interesting it will be to see police and corrections “orificers” in the gen pop (general prison population).

  2. Put ’em all away! Of course not all public employees are like this; most (i hope!) are not. But Corrupt and Incompetent seems to be the mantra for the modern civil servant.

  3. First of all, according to the story, cell phone smuggling was also a major target of the sting.

    Second, no names were mentioned, which makes one wonder….

  4. “Affirmative action guards?” Well if the prison guards are like nearly every other public sector employee in Georgia, then yeah!

  5. They can’ t shut down the cellphone service in prison, but they had no problem shitting it down at the Malhuer wildlife refuge!
