If there is one of the many whines that perpetually emanate from the Prison Officers Association that get my goat, it's the one about how dangerous their job is. It's a Big Fat Lie. There are dozens of jobs which are more dangerous.
And should I ever get the chance to nail one of the POA leaders in public, one of the first questions I'd ask is this: How many screws have ever been killed by cons? And how many cons have been killed by screws..?
And here's a thing. The Ministry collect the stats on how many cons assault staff. They know how many cons assault other cons. But they don't collect the figures for how many staff assault cons.
