    This is directed to Truthteller, I work in this institution and the Officer was attacked cause the inmate was a walking time bomb. He did not want to comply to the rules. The Ofc that was assaulted is a 20+ year veteran and in his 50’s. He did not deserve this or any other officer for that matter.
