Nice to see people already working a dangerous, thankless job have to deal with miscreants throwing shit & piss at them.
Man DOC Mgt. is one f'ed up group of empty suits..
(And one bloated, empty skirt)


FROM THE BOSTON HERALD:
The union that represents Walpole prison guards plans to file a grievance against the Department of Correction after three inmates attacked officers with urine and feces Monday night, but were not disciplined.

Steve Kenneway, president of the Massachusetts Correction Officers Federated Union, said Monday night's attack on four prison guards and a unit superintendent at Walpole's 10-block is another example of the DOC's "mishandling of the system, which is putting people in danger.''

The three inmates involved in the attack on the guards were moved from Walpole's Disciplinary Disorders Unit, a wing at Walpole for the most dangerous cons in the state's prison system. The unit was shut down July 26, the same day the Herald reported doors in the unit had begun to snap open, allowing inmates to escape their cells.

In the weeks since the 106 inmates were moved from the closed unit, there have been uprisings that have caused thousands of dollars in damages, DOC officials have said.

"These inmates did not even have their privileges taken away,'' Kenneway said of the convicts accused in Monday night's attack.

Yesterday, DOC spokeswoman Diane Wiffin insisted the men were punished and could face further disciplinary action.

"It has to go through a process. They will be disciplined. It is possible they could get an extension of their DDU time,'' Wiffin said, adding that the three cons have been moved again.

In the meantime, the DOC has not offered an explanation for why the doors in the disciplinary unit were opening.

"There is nothing to date about the doors,'' Wiffin said.

Riiiiight. Sure they were. The spokeswoman knows more about the situation then the officers walking the pods... yeah, right.

This is what happens when you have people with NO corrections background running the place (i.e. Commissioner Kathleen M. Dennehy).
Interesting, you can't be a Police Chief without LE experience but you can become the Commissioner of DOC and run the system that controls all the shitbags without ever spending an 8 hours shift behind the wall.

Just a side note, Providence Police Chief Dean Esserman became Asst. Chief of Police in CT without ever being a police officer. Prior to that he was a prosecutor.
