He knows once convicted, prison will be tough. Under threat in GenPop or in Safekeeping, which is pretty much the same as punitive seg.

On a lighter note, Jesus and Mohamed come running into a Police station saying, "Some dangerous men are following us!"

Thanks Corporal T.E. for helping me understand what is going through this guys head a bit more. He looks out the window for a while in the beginning and I can't help but wonder what he's thinking. I just found out there's several RSOs living in my area. If anyone wants to see about their own neighborhood look here: http://safetyfirstalert.com/sex-offender-map/ .

Good work Sarge, to bad you didn't grant the SOB his wish.

Well now we have to pay for him to get bruised up in prison besides. However, it definitely was a justified shooting. Good job SGT. No one likes to have to shoot someone it just makes you feel horrible. I know I had to do it once and once only.
