again my point was that EVEN in protective custody they have to interact with other inmates who are also in protective custody
not if they find out who he is before he gets to PC
Several months into his term, Smith was confronted in the prison yard by an inmate who recognized him as a former officer, Chuck said. "He
denied he was" a former officer, the lawyer said. "It was very scary because there were other people in the yard listening to this confrontation.
"About the worst thing you can be in prison other than a child molester is an ex-cop," he said. "He lives in constant fear that he will meet
someone in prison who will recognize him." Authorities moved Smith to another facility after the prison yard confrontation.
so some times they
are found out just not always shanked
In the inmate pecking order in jails and prisons, former cops rank near the bottom, just above child molesters and rapists, authorities say.
State officials say they do not keep track of how many former law enforcement officers make their way into California's prison system. Convicted
cops usually are placed in the general prison population, but their law enforcement backgrounds are kept secret, state Department of Corrections
spokesman Mike Van Winkle said. If it becomes necessary, they may be moved to other prisons or into a protective custody unit at the state prison in
see that usually placed in gen pop until some one confronts them stupidly and neglects to shank them on site.
and why it isnt this way in every state in baltimore(where the warden has brass ones and didn't give these bastards special treatment) these fifteen
cops were tossed into gen pop
Police officers convicted of a crime in Maryland and sentenced to state prison are typically housed in segregated areas for their safety, far from
most other inmates. But those prosecuted in U.S. District Court and sent to federal prison — like the 15 Baltimore officers recently convicted in a
kickback scheme — will, for the most part, be thrown in with the rest of the convicts. "Whether [inmates are] high profile, law enforcement,
whatever the case may be, we aim to treat them like anybody else," said Chris Burke, a spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
so if they
end up in fed prison they get thrown to the wolves as a policy until their is a threat and some times not even then.....
and riots do happen and some times cops screw up and leave their keys behind like in this case where the prisoners gained access to the PC yard during
Meanwhile the rioters began taunting prison officials over the radio about what they were going to do to the men in cell block 4. But no action
was taken. One official was heard to remark about the men in the segregation facility, "it's their a**". As dawn broke, an 'execution squad'
finally cut through the grille and entered the block. The security panel controlling the cell doors was burned off. Victims were pulled from their
cells to be tortured, dismembered, decapitated, or burned alive.
so protective custody is not always infallible its an incredibly hard search
term to use on google as most of the results are for killers of cops or corrections officers i did find sever "suspicious cases" of officers who
"died" in jail (one of them in the showers who was a rapist of children 11 counts) it seems to me that if the inmates manage to get one of the
former cops shanked that prison officials would do all they could to cover it up so im not surprised they ruled it a natural death in that case
either way they get locked in a cell for 23 hours of the day and have less privileges.
