30. The prison guard union has a strangle hold on the
State government. No one runniong for office dares to cross them.

Some of these people make over $ 100K a year with overtime.

You will see that the poor no longer get meds, and that the Welfare rolls are cut.

But not once will you see a guard demoted, even if all they do is incite fights and tape them to watch later for their amusement.
