They have in them the ability to be nice just up to the point that they shank you in the bac
Hmm, well, I don't know if I trust a correctional officer to have the most unbiased view of things. Nothing against your friends or anything. I'm sure there are all kinds of horribly vicious scum-of-the-earth types they have to deal with and I don't envy them their jobs. But I say that mostly because I suspect the ones they have to deal with the most are the ones who cause the most problems. So it would tend to color the way you see everyone in there. But I'm clearly pulling this out of my backside, since I honestly don't know what it's like to either be a correctional officer or a prisoner and hope to god that I never have to find out. haha. I can, however, say that I've heard stories from people who I know beyond a shadow of a doubt were very wrongly incarcerated, and they get treated like crap for no good reason, and I'm not talking about by inmates. Our prison system totally sucks if you ask me. When you treat people like that, don't expect them to treat you fairly in return is all I can say.

Well, ultimately I think the two us have pretty irreconcilable world views. Because I in no way believe that it's a hard fact of life that some have to die for others to live.

I also in absolutely no way believe that it's "selfish" or "easy" to decide that you don't have the right to judge others. In fact I think it can sometimes be rather lazy to judge others without taking the time to understand them. hah. So anyway, irreconcilable world views I think is the conclusion here.
