Being a Jailer Sounds Like a Bad Gig

Floating around the legally minded blogs this week is this video, which is from a self-proclaimed redneck says he used to work as a correctional officer for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice -- and, no, I don't think it's Larry the Cable Guy. (Link props to The Backgate Website via Grits for Breakfast.) We're actually posting the first part of his dissertation: "For anybody thinkin' about going into corrections, don't. It's shit." Of course, we're in no position to verify any of this, but it's a fascinating monologue regardless. Oh, and the video's got plenty of cursin' in it -- you've been warned, if you're thinking of playing this at work. --Robert Wilonsky
