Another day, another story of a female prison officer ‘acting inappropriately’:
From the article:
Levens admitted she was ‘lonely and depressed’ and sought solace in the inmate’s interest in her. ‘I was obviously going through a bad time. I’m not saying it was right, but at the time I was not in the right state of mind,’ she told the judge.
‘I’m not saying it was right…’. Wow. And what male prison guard would ever think of saying by way of mitigation in similar circumstances, ‘I was not in the right state of mind’? It’s about damned time we eliminated the personal accountability gender gap.
