Unfortunately it will only get worst. The negative environment is praised by upper ranks with a "good ol days (when we could beat inmates)" or "don't come to prison if you wanna be treated decent" attitude towards inmates and a "We all had to be treated this way" gesture to incoming recruits. The depressing environment filled with unhappy staffing is a recipe for disaster!!
