If this van's rockin'.....

Every Thursday, two members of my squad are assigned to wagon duty. This involves shuttling prisoners from our precinct to the main jail downtown. This way, officers can make arrests and then return to patrol without having to drive prisoners one by one to the jail.

The 'wagon' is a van outfitted with a large rear cage for males and a smaller middle cage for females. Each prisoner is handcuffed behind the back and sits on a padded bench. The separation of genders is meant to discourage any inappropriate contact. Unfortunately, this does not eliminate all inappropriate behavior.

Last week there were several male prisoners and not enough handcuffs for each one. When this happens, we handcuff the prisoners together with one pair of cuffs (one guy's left wrist handcuffed to another guy's right wrist). This leaves one hand free but since they're in a locked cage inside a locked van, they are secure. Apparently, one of the prisoners became aroused on the way to jail in the back of a van with a bunch of other criminals and decided it would be a good time to pull down his pants and pleasure himself with his free hand. He was lucky the guy attached to his other wrist didn't get offended and knock him out.

There were five other men in the back of the van while this happened and all were willing to testify against the fornicator in court. He was charged with indecent exposure which is a minor misdemeanor but here's the real justice: It turns out this guy was a convicted sex offender and was released from prison early on probation. The indecent exposure was a violation of his probation and now his original sentence will be reinstated. He would have been out of jail later that night for the original crime he was arrested for but the probation violation meant several years to be served in state prison.

Sounds like justice was served, in a strange way.

I put a post up to try and explain geocaching for you.

It is actually pretty important that police know about it, since we don't want to get arrested for being perverts when we are just lookin for a hidden cache

If mrs officer gary is really going down the path to teaching, tell her to email me at askdoomcake@gmail.com.

I am on my 12th year as a teacher and I don't mind talking shop or giving advice. There is nothing worse than someone who just isn't prepared for teaching, even if they think they want to do it.

I deal with low socio-economic students and know enough about the real life of a teacher to be of some help

Thanks, I'll pass that along. I also visited geocaching.com and think it looks like fun. I might try searching soon.

Boy, this dude has problems. Not much hope that he will ever be able to control himself! I agree with Ronda - lock him away until he is too old to get it up!
