First of all I am a Prison Guard who has worked for a contemptably corrupt and abuse ridden prison in Lycoming County near Lewisburg Pennsylvania for several years. The things I have seen in there done to prisoners by my fellow guards are horrendous and beyond contempt! I hope someone has the guts to come in and fire "all my fellow guards" in there that steal, beatup, and actaully have raped both male and female prisoners. If I would report them and "go on the record" then I would no doubt get fired and get immidiately discredited if not locked up for the time I was accused of raping a prisoner, or for thefts ,or have our corrupt local Williamsport Police plant someting on me, or they'd simply put in a mental institution just to "shut me up"! This is much like that Robert Redford movie "Brubaker", except my Warden just looks the other way with all terrible abuse of prisoners and the chaos in the prison. Incidently, my girl friend Jill, who works for the Jersey Shore Bank in Williamsport convinced me to keep "singing loudly" about the prison and what I have seen and will see in the future. By the way, ironically, she see's a few of her fellow tellers actually ripping off the bank and stealing from customers accounts but she is afraid to tell anyone for fear she will be fired and blamed for God knows what. Not long ago she was "supposedly" seen on video tape for stealing cash herself, but it was unfounded, though no doubt they would use that evidence against her if she went to the authorities about that lousy bank. She was actually blamed for stealing customers money right out of the vault, give me a break! That's another story. Anyway, me and my girl friend have been getting flack for telling our neighbors and anybody else we come in contact with about the prison and her bank, but no one seems to care. We fear for our safety at times, and I think me and her and our dog Baily might move out of town if not the state because of this living nightmare. I'd hate to do that and would like to make a stand, but it's getting pretty bad thses days. The living nightmare got "much worse" when just a few weeks ago there was a "drive by" shooting in Williamsport right up Adams Street ""incredibly close"" to my half double brick house, and I hope it wasn't meant for us, though with "what" one of my now ex-fiend who is also a Prison Guard that I had just "complained to" before the shooting had happened... I think it was too close to home. I also recently found out that my address even got out to a few released prisoners who want to get back at me, plus my fellow corrupt guards obviously have ways to scare a snitch too like me too. I'm very glad this site is private and we can vent on line to those who might hear us and believe us. Maybe this nightmare will end and the prison and even my girlfriend's bank will be investigated. No doubt this is risky telling my story, but the lack of integrity me and my girl friend have demands that we tell our stories to anyone who will listen so we can sleep at night. I do not know who to turn to, but it is good this site is here so that maybe someone besides me will nail the prison and the bank! Thank you Job Shmob for listening!
