Why do we waste crops every year ? That could help TDCJ food costs. The line never turn out. The Wardens say they are short staff. The Farm manager tells them a month a head. Still millions of dollars are just disked under. What a waste of tax dollars. Just check all units who have edible crops. We could give that food to schools or sale to the public.
Why do we have so many horses not being used ? The line never turns out anymore. The inmates have a petting zoo. Put those CO's back in the building. Save money on feed and hay sell those horses. At Jester III, the line has not been out in two years.
TDCJ kills sick pigs with a sledge hammer. Seeing a inmate chase down a pig with a sledge hammer. What is wrong with this picture ? USDA does not allow this. Texas Animal Health does not allow this. Sick cows are shot by the farm manager with his personal gun around inmates watching. Then drug out in the pasture.
TDCJ get ready for a big lawsuit. The vans that transport inmates are unsafe to drive. Allot have 200K miles on them. They are very worn out. With budget cuts they are not being replaced or repaired. Front ends are ready to fall off. The public will suffer.
TDCJ needs to sell Farm implements that have not been used for years. They set rusting away.
What TDCJ really needs is a computerized time keeping system. The Agency is too good to us and way too good to those who fraud the Agency in return. Supervisors are human and many make honest mistakes however, many more make conscious mistakes stealing time from the agency. If you work you shall receive credit, if you don’t work you shall lose your time. A smart time keeping system tracks us all in and out to include the amount of time we spend on break!!
TDCJ will not pay me overtime. But will write me up for not getting my work done. Tired of working extra hours and not getting paid. Looking for new job ,that will pay me. TDCJ, you ruined a great worker.
Anonymous:: I work at a Unit that has a Mobile/RV park on the unit and was denied to put my RV on one of the lots because the warden wants to keep the ratio of mobile homes and RV's evened out. I talked to the Region 1 Asst. Director and was told there is not policy in place, so it falls on the warden to decide. Sounds like the Good Ole' boy system at its finest. Even in 2012.. So, leaves things open for personal preference, Ethics issues, an more. See I'm a woman and denied to put my RV on the spaces. Isn't my money just as good as the next. Its $25 for lot rent. But, the last 3 request for other correctional officers was approved, they were all 3 men. Good ole boy system. So, I filed a grievance on the Warden and the asst Director. Guess It wont be long and I'll be harassed at work...
I'm so happy our Warden at Jester 1 just retired. He took care of the good ole boys. He was slimy like a snake. Thank you God !!
