A very wise man once told me this about inmates. (If you treat them like an inmate they’ll act like an inmate. However if you treat them like a man they’ll act like a man). I followed this philosophy throughout my career with the Federal Bureau Of Prisons and I can say that I rarely ever had any problems with the inmates I supervised. A little respect can go a long way. Always give them what they’ve got coming, good or bad, always be fair.
