Someone sent me this story with the comment, “Ain’t feminism grand?”
Here we have a case of female jail guards getting into relationships with inmates:
White, 36, showered three of the guards with expensive gifts, including luxury cars and jewellery. The four women — Jennifer Owens, 31, Katera Stevenson, 24, Chania Brooks, 27, and Tiffany Linder, 27 — are among 25 people, 13 of them female prison guards, who face federal charges that include drug conspiracy, money laundering and racketeering.
They are now, belatedly, asking whether it’s appropriate to have women guard men:
Instead, the scandal has raised questions about why female prison guards would become intimately involved with their charges and whether it was appropriate to have women corrections officials guarding male inmates in the first place.
