Private Prisons should be shut down
Correctional Officer (Former Employee) – Hartsville, TN – November 11, 2017
Inhumane treatment of prisoners at Trousdale Turner Correctional Center. They are never given their medication, and people are literally dying as a result. I watched 2 people die unnecessarily during my time there. Significant and real human rights abuses happening behind closed doors. Culture is dehumanizing and unhealthy. COs work 12-16 hour shifts per day. They are so exhausted they actually fall asleep at the wheel while driving home (I did and caught myself once, 3 of my coworkers totaled their vehicles in the less than 1 year I was there). I was one of the few COs who made it past 6 months -- very few do, and for good reason.
Getting to help prisoners who desperately need help
Culture of inhumane treatment of both prisoners and staff, unsafe
