I am a 17 year convict released and doing excellent in society. I never met scott grimes but i know his brother mike. I came into the system and the long term convicts had respect for scott. They all said he was a good man. Mike also a prison employee also showed fairnessas. Well as not discriminating against other inmates for his brothers misfortune. As a convict. Correctional officers should lead by example. You are the best promoter of change a convict has. When you have a persons respect they will listen to you. Many correctional officers are low life scum. A good officer like scott who had convict respect had to pay the ultimate price. My advice to any correctional officer is to do your job honestly ask yourself this question. If i was convicted of a crime could i do time in population. If you have respect you know you can. Remember a corrupt correctional officer can bring negative tension that can get you killed when you are trying to do the righ thing. I have been out 9 months and havnt been pulled over by the lae. Scott grimes didnt get a chance to show me a thing but his brother mike did. I thank all correctional officers trying to make a honest change for all. Its more than a job if your sincer.
