  1. I would have thought that with your job, you had a better than average chance of saying yes on number 4 or 5!

    1. i've been lucky. i know female officers that love getting assigned to work hospital duty with pregnant inmates because they just love it when new life happens. i don't work hospital duty hardly at all, in fact, it's been probably 10 year since i was assigned to work a shift in the hospital and we have a special unit that all they do is watch over people in the hospital. as far as the dying people goes, i tend to avoid situations that could possibly lead to that for multiple reasons. the main one being that yea, they're an inmate but they're still human and i think it would seriously tear me apart to witness someone's last moments.
