    Two quick observations, both which lead me to deduce the authorship of this article or book….

    The comment regarding the trustworthiness of correction officers is inaccurate and reflects an obvious bias. While there is no doubt that there are officers who will not care and may even resort to cruelty or deception, the overwhelming percentage of officers are just honest men and women trying to earn a living. They understand what their duties are are, while they may not go out of their way in some cases, they will make an honest effort to ensure the safety and well being of the inmates they supervise.

    “Experienced” cons who offer to “show you around” and explain prison life are most often those with an eye towards manipulation and worse. They identify the weak and the vulnerable for their own benefit. My suggestion would be to be extra cautious when choosing those to associate with. The ones most willing to “help” are often the most dangerous. Rely on your instincts and, much like school or the workplace, you will be able to identify those you can be comfortable. More important, dont borrow, dont lend and always be aware of your surrounds. If it does feel comfortable, find another place to be. L8V2

      Hi H.B.,

      Although I do not agree completely with your comment about officers, your comment about “Experienced Cons” is absolutely excellent advice.
