A look at the penal system from the perspective of the Corrections Officer. Presents the ugly truth about prison. Includes the history of the penal system. The author works as a Corrections Officer for about a year and describes the difficulties and challenges of the job.

The eye-opener for me was how the job affected the CO when outside the prison. We need to do something about our current system.
