John J. Pecchio says:

 

        The criminal mind never sleeps. Working in an All Male Maximum-Security Prison for 25-YEARS, I Understand Why Prisons are FAILING.

          IT ALL STARTS WITH OUR JUDICIAL SYSTEM TURNING THESE INSTITUTIONS INTO PLAYGROUNDS FOR CRIMINAL’S RIGHTS; SUPPORTING HARDCORE CRIMINALS, WHO THRIVE ON ACTING LIKE PSYCHOPATHIC MONSTERS AND PREHISTORIC MAN EXISTING ALL OVER AGAIN.

          This article will inform the mind and startle the soul. Crime and punishment in this country is out of control. Many agree in, how lawmakers and prison bureaucrats are controlling our modern prisons, and turning them into political arenas that operate like a circus of shams and charades.

          When we started building modern prisons in the 1800s, air, food and space was all that the constitution called for when incarcerating criminals. The purpose of building prisons was to punish criminals for their crimes and reform them to live productive lives.

          For two-centuries in this country, we have been processing criminals in our Judicial-System and building prisons to punish criminals. In addition, in all that time, I am appalled, how lawmakers have not revised the system to correct the lack of administrative and prisoner discipline. Nor impeach those who are still contaminating our prison with flaws, embedding them with unthinking, unknowing or corrupted officials and political bureaucrats.

          When politicians run for public office they want to impress taxpayers with solutions to lower the deficit, stabilize taxes and protect public safety. I realize that most politicians have never seen the inside of a prison and the ones who have been were short visit and shown the best parts. It is appalling and a shameful act, the way so many political officials come into office and start abusing tax-dollars and the legal system by clamming, that closing prisons will lower the deficit. When in fact; it will increases prison violence, spending and crime rate.

          Federal and State Prisons have deteriorated to their worst condition in the history of these institutions. They have changed from operating with dignity and strong security into a hellish nightmare where corruption is the norm. With the loss of positive leadership in our prisons came the increase of prisoner’s power, primarily caused by their ability to hide behind highly-defended “Civil Rights”, which has now taken precedence above all else. These rights allowed them to live without fear of strong retribution for their actions, thereby leading to a breakdown in inmate behavior and resulting in riots, fights, and physical and verbal abuse of prison workers.

          The recidivism rates are now at the highest point in prison history. Prison bureaucrats know that approximately 70% and 80% of repeat felons’ including 90% of pedophiles and sex-offenders are returning in one-to three-years committing the same crimes, which is a sure sign of a failing prison system. Not to mention the cost to keep one inmate incarcerated for one year is approximately $60,000 dollars of taxpayers’ money.

          After working in a maximum-security prison for almost three-decades, it is my firm conviction that “The criminal mind never sleeps”. Our Justice System processes so many criminals throughout the prison systems at taxpayers’ expense, and they continue to rebel against the system while incarcerated, by violating prison rules and regulations, breaking laws and committing more crimes.

          Each year, taxpayers’ are spending billions dollars on our Justice System to fight crime in this country, and approximately $50-billion dollars of that money is spend on the Department of Corrections.

          In 1966 when I started working in the prison system, our prison security was intact and ran well because administrators were in control. Three years later we started getting a new breed of administrators from Central Office, (the main headquarters for all prisons in the state) they were politically orientated, inexperienced, arrogant and controlling. Their goals were plain and simple; they worried more about pleasing their superiors and prisoner’s rights then prison safety. That was the beginning of how our prisons went from good to bad and ugly in the last several decades.

          In today’s prisons, the lack of prison security has diminished. The security correctional officers, who were the backbone of the prison system, and with prisoner’s rights taking precedence over all else, the security officers is now just a glorified babysitters. Now prison staffs is  forced to move daily between freedom and captivity while walking a delicate line between administrative politics and the threat of inmate violence.

          I was a vocational instructor working and supervising murderers, rapist, pedophiles, and drug-pushers and mentally unstable prisoners. My vocational shop had dangerous weapons in my trade tools, including shape knives, screwdrivers and machines. The new administrators ignored security procedures and removed the security officer from all the vocational shops, and tripled their workload to patrol several shops a day, which left me without security for several hours. My inmates wasted no time in becoming reckless and were highly a security risk. These new administrators and prison security put me in life-threatening situations. The inevitable happened. Several inmates begin making challenging remarks to harm me. The leader of the gang kept violating prison rules and regulations to impress other inmates. He was a mass-murderer serving two-life-terms for killing several people.

          I had written several misbehavior reports, while locking this inmate up many times. Prison security leaders downplayed my reports out of fear for prisoner’s rights and their superiors, to show fewer incidents. Within a month, the same inmate wrote a threatening letter to security heads and the superintendent, quote. “Take me out of Pecchio shop or there will be trouble” unquote. In addition, I was never informed of the threaten letters by the inmate and the deputy superintendent response, “How he would take care of it and never did.”

          As expected, this 280-pound muscular inmate charged me from behind and brutally attacked me. With blood pouring down the side of my face where he hit me with a closed fist, and then kept kicking me on the floor and picked me up bodily and threw me hard up against a 600-pound steel machine; I hit it with such force it moved. I then fell hard to the concrete floor next to my desk on a platform. When he stopped punching me for a few seconds and turned towards the door, I reached up with one arm and knocked the phone off the hook and that alerted security. They rushed in and took control. The inmate was escorted to the hospital and then to the guardhouse. In a few minutes, my boss and a guard helped me over to the prison hospital where I was treated and then transported to the outside hospital for further medical treatment. Several months passed I was summoned to appear in a court jury trial. The inmate that attacked me received a three-to-seven-years sentence, added to his two life terms. I receive a medical disability, for the rest of my life. This traumatic experience was openly, caused by a failing prison system.

 

          IT IS TIME TO ACT AND I HOPE THE DIVERSITY OF MY TRUE, COMPELLING AND GRIPPING STORIES WILL BE A POSITIVE INSTRUMENT IN PRISON REFORM.

 

          VISIT MY WEBSITE www.johnpecchio.com  AND READ MY TRUE COMPELLING AND GRIPPING STORIE ABOUT WHAT GOES ON BEHIND THOSE PRISON WALLS. “HELL BEHIND PRISON WALLS” AND “THE DEVIL’S DEN OF PRISON AND JUSTICE” LOOK AT HOW PRISONS ARE STILL FAILING WHILE TAXPAYERS ARE SUPPORTING THE HIGHEST INCARCERATION RATE IN PRISON HISTORY. WE HAVE THE MOST SERIAL KILLER IN THE WORLD. ALONG WITH APPROXIMATELY 2.4 MILLION SCHIZOPHRENICS, WITH MANY BEING BORDERLINE CASES, WHO ARE MISING IN WITH REPEAT FELONS AND ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, WHICH COMMIT MOST OF THE CRIME IN THE UNITED STATES.
