I use to work at a Federal Prison. This is one story of one day that I wondered if I would finish.

Prison Story

I use to work at a Federal Prison. I remember one incident like it happened yesterday. I was supervising inmates in the dining room. It was meal time and the room was full of prisoners. I was watching the serving line, ensuring each person got their portion of food. There was one other officer by the line and another staff member in the dining hall. A disturbance broke out and the staff member took off out the door. It was me and the Lieutenant left. The disturbance grew louder. I wondered if my personal safety was in jeopardy. The Lieutenant walked up to me and instructed me to stand in the middle of the Dining Room. He further instructed me that after he made an announcement and I pointed to anyone, that inmate would be cuffed and taken and thrown in a cell. With fear I walked to the center of the room. The officer got the attention of the entire room. "The next person that says one sound I will cuff you and take you down town." I began to look around. To my relief I found no one making a sound. It was eerie and silent. The meal went on without an incident. I sighed a huge sigh of relieve. I didn't feel like eating that day.
