Little has changed at Morehouse State Prison in Columbus. The Employees civil rights and other sanctions are violated daily and there is an urgent inmate and administration problem that needs immediate attention. The officers, medical staff and civilian employee's lives are jeopardized daily, while protecting the public, and at the same time the officers are grossly mistreated. Officers are angry at the lack of consideration they receive from the public, the administration, and those fake union representatives. Officers are forced to uphold an oath; yet, they are violated every single day. Without just cause employees are terminated, issued costly pay deductions, forced into early retirement and given unreasonable reprimands. Still today, restrooms and restroom time are inadequate. Most officers work almost thirty days yearly without pay, with absolutely no lunch breaks. Have you ever heard an older person say, "That person will make a preacher curse?" Any form of incarceration will do that. Prisons are notorious for making preachers curse - and Morehouse Prison is known for making people lose their mind, as well. Prison is never an easy life. When teens are incarcerated for a few months in a detention center, he or she may survive... get out then go home and say, "It was no big deal, I did it standing on my head." When that individual grows into an adult and is sent to jail for a few years, that person may survive... get out, then go home and say, "It was no big deal, I did it standing on my head. But after upgrading himself to prison life, that person may survive, but he won't be getting out and going home any time soon. Prison is a difficult struggle! And unlike the inmates, somehow, every officer dies at Morehouse State Prison.
