If Hope Steffey answered "Now or Ever? to the question "Have you ever tried to hurt yourself?" they she answered correctly.
You see if she willingly had here ears pierced, then yes she has hurt herself in the past... do you see what I'm saying?
It's a trick question if you ask me. I was pulled over a few times by road programs to try and catch DUI's, and the question they ask you is "I'm
looking for a sober driver. Did I find one?" Now most people would think he just asked me if I was drinking, so I'm going to say "No!"
Wrong Answer and now your being pulled from the car.... see how this works? The correct answer would be "Yes". I don't think they should be allowed
to trick or entrap Innocent people. There questions should be direct and to the point. and the question should be. "Hello, how are you today Sir?"
"Have you been drinking at all to day Sir?" or "Hope Steffey Have you ever tried to commit suicide?"
Also I tossed and turned all night last night, and what came too, was if I was a Police officer and was told by my superior to go to cell room #9 and
assist in the remove of a female detainees clothing, I would have said "Absolutely not! I'm a man and it's just not right for me to be there at
all." If I would get fired for it then so be it, I will have my day in court I assure you of that.
The BIG heat here is that these male officers need to be removed from the police force immediately before they do this again!
Same goes for there superior, it's his job to ensure that his deputies are doing there jobs by the book. He claims it's "against the law for males
to be present while a female is being striped" and yet he also claims "they did nothing wrong".
Well that just an Oxymoron! Sorry, but you can not have it both way's. Either it's "Wrong" or it's "Not Wrong" and it is Wrong, That is just
human nature. If you were disgusted by the fact that 2 Male Officers were present during the search then it's wrong! They need to be removed from
duty "As Soon As Possible".
I would also like to add that Innocent people do get framed by Police, and this I speak from experience. I wont go into my story but that being said,
and the point I'm trying to make is that you can be all buddy buddy with the local police, but once one officer doesn't like you within seconds the
hole force doesn't like you. I'm sure this works the same for CO's. I understand it, I don't necessarily agree with it but it's there and that
probably won't change anytime soon. Is this Wrong also? Sure it is because it's your job to also protect the inmates from guards as well as other
inmates. That's just common sense. I know its hard to see inmates as people, but they are and they do have rights as a person. Yeah, they might be
bad and/or repeat offenders and yes they probably deserve to do hard time. but if you treat them or anyone like anything other than a human with
rights, feelings, emotions and dignity, how can you possible expect to be respected by this person? Do you think it's your badge that warrants or
demands respect? Definitely not! I only respect those who respect me and I respect them back, but start shouting at me and I will shout back, insult
me and I will insult you back. This is human nature, it's part of our self defence or will to survive, programed into our vary own DNA.
Remember the old saying a dog will never bite the hand that feeds him, but if you abuse that dog it will bite you.
Does this make the dog a bad dog?
