1 Man Smeared in Shit While Lap Dances Given on Glasscock

Recommended Posts

What actually happened is quite lame and exposes the holes that we all know exist (no pun intended?) in these systems, but it's funny in a sick way when you take into account the name.




AP NewsBreak: Inmate left in feces nearly dies

BYLINE: By JON GAMBRELL, Associated Press Writer


LENGTH: 788 words



An Arkansas prisoner nearly died after guards left him lying naked in

his own feces, and while investigating the incident

corrections officials found that guards received lap dances while on

the job, documents obtained by The Associated Press


The prison system fired Lt. John Glasscock, who supervised guards on

duty at the maximum-security Tucker Unit

prison. One sergeant was fired, another was demoted and three others

received written warnings. The report, stamped

"Sustained (Allegation is True)," said Glasscock gave false information

to investigators and did substandard work "resulting

in injury and/or property damage."

The disclosures come after two convicted murderers recently escaped a

different state prison by wearing guard uniforms

and officers at the Tucker Unit fatally shot a man who officials said

fled from a contraband checkpoint. Combined, the

incidents raise new questions about a troubled state prison system

described by a federal judge 40 years ago as a "dark and

evil world."

Prisons spokeswoman Dina Tyler called the inmate's near death

unprecedented. "I think what you've got here is a case of

a couple of officers who were not doing their jobs up to their

standards and we took appropriate action," she said Monday.

The report, obtained by the AP through a state Freedom of Information

Act request, said guards discovered the inmate

Jan. 19. He had smeared waste over his body and played with it, but no

one cleaned up the inmate or his cell the weekend of

Jan. 16 through Jan. 19.

"In fact, food trays were put in there on the bars for him to eat,"

James Gibson, an internal affairs investigator for the

state prison system, wrote in the report.

The inmate, whose name was redacted, was on life support by Feb. 10 at

a hospital in Little Rock after suffering through

septicemia and septic shock, according to the report. The conditions

send virulent microorganisms from an infection into the

blood stream. The inmate, who had violated prison rules several times,

including a few violent incidents, is now at the prison

system's Diagnostic Unit in Pine Bluff, Tyler said.

The incident also resulted in the Feb. 11 firing of Bobby Lunsford, a

sergeant who said he told a supervisor about the

inmate but the person wasn't working when Lunsford was there, the

report shows. A telephone number for Lunsford could

not be found Monday, and Gibson wrote in his report that Lunsford did

not return messages left for him on a cellular phone.

A sergeant told investigators by Feb. 20 that Glasscock was given a lap

dance by a nurse within sight of inmates and

spent "hours" with female officers in a prison office. The sergeant

also apparently received a lap dance. The report also said a

sergeant claimed inmates were brought in to cook for night shift


Glasscock denied the allegations against him but acknowledged he

"messed up" by not doing rounds at the facility,

according to the report.

Records show Glasscock joined the prison system as a guard in November

1996, and never was demoted or had a

previous disciplinary infraction, officials said. A telephone number

listed in Glasscock's name rang unanswered Monday. The

maximum-security unit at Tucker, 30 miles southeast of Little Rock, has

532 inmates with about 100 serving as workers and

living in a barrack-style dormitory, Tyler said.

The Arkansas prison system, now nationally accredited, has a troubled

past. It was declared unconstitutional four

decades ago by U.S. District Judge J. Smith Henley. Back then, trusted

armed inmates would police other inmates. State

police reports showed brutal living conditions.

In 2007, prison guards were fired for using excessive force against

inmates. In May, convicted murderers Calvin Adams

and Jeffrey Grinder escaped wearing prison-made guard uniforms and were

caught in New York with badges resembling

staff identification. Last Saturday, a guard at Tucker fatally shot a

man wanted for failing to report to his parole officer after

officials said he crashed his vehicle into the assistant warden's car

close to officers.

Tyler said the department constantly trains its staff. She cautioned

against making connections between "three totally

unrelated incidents."

Lawmakers have scheduled a meeting with prison director Larry Norris in

the coming weeks to discuss the recent prison

escape. Matt DeCample, a spokesman for Gov. Mike Beebe, said the

governor continued to support Norris' work at the


"When things have gone wrong, action has been taken and that's very

important to us," DeCample said. "If things were

going wrong and no one seemed to be taking no action to fix it, that's

where we'd be greatly concerned."

The title of this thread made me laugh, because I have cargo shorts with a few specks of period blood on them from a lapdance


HATER. and Manute were there and can co-sign
