    No one cares. It is the cost of doing business. One shot to the head will stop this crap.

      Yeah, no questions asked. Obviously the jailer is above the law and shouldn’t have to take any shit! He should have just shit the inmate for even daring to defy him! Are you a retarded person? You don’t know the story, you assume the co wasn’t doing anything wrong or intentionally agitating the inmate. It isn’t unheard of that jail and prison guards are not good people. Just because some one is incarcerated does not instantly make them guilty of everything anytime someone says boo. You’re like a stupid angry little person, you need help.
