Embarrassed officials in upstate New York say an inmate was injured when he stepped in to separate two guards fighting over food. The inmate lost a tooth when he tried to stop the guards fighting over a bag of chips, workers at Erie County Correction Facility tell the Buffalo News. The correction officers, who have 55 years experience between them, have been suspended with pay. Officials say the inmate intervened because he didn't want the officers to lose their jobs.
There's so many things wrong with this story, one wouldn't even know where to begin pointing them all out. It's just too bad these officers aren't in Florida to appear before this judge whom deputies allegedly held at gun point by mistake.[mashshare]
