"The response of the other inmates in this case I think speaks volumes as to the fact that we treat these men and women that are held in our facilities with a lot of respect," Previtera said.

Yes and no. As Corrections workers one is in a position of custody. We are not judges. I treat ALL inmate with respect until I have reason to not respect them. It works. We had this new gung ho CO one day and he was following me around with my crew. I asked if he didn't trust my ability. He said that he was there for back up. I told him, "I've got all the back up I need with my crew. Right Billy?" Billy, a lifer nodded.
This doesn't surprise me at all. There's plenty of dicks in Corrections and those that aren't are generally treated with respect from the inmates. That said, one always should watch their back.
