Default Chino prison guard sentenced to prison in inmate assaults

Chino prison guard sentenced to prison in inmate assaults

Will Bigham, staff writer
Posted: 06/07/2010 09:57:02 PM PDT



A former Chino prison guard convicted of abusing inmates was sentenced today to more than four years in federal prison.
Robert McGowan, of Bloomington, was convicted by a federal jury three years ago in connection with a May 9, 2002 incident in which he and two other correctional officers allegedly hurled shackled inmates to the ground and conspired to cover it up. A federal judge overturned guilty verdicts for the three officers from the California Institution for Men, but McGowan's conviction -- for two counts of deprivation of rights under color of law -- was reinstated on appeal.

First of all, he's getting a taste of what so many human beings go through, only his is on a lighter scale. He made so much judgment about another human being thinking it would never happen to him. Surprise. When he was put in a position of authority; he abused his authority, and got caught. He should think again when thinking of passing judgment on another. The law is the law. What lesson will his children get from this? If the scene is painted for them in Dad's concept, it will be sad. I'm hoping that he is reflecting on all the labels that has sprewed from his lips, from his core. That letter to me, is vomit.

"POLITICAL PAWN???" That's just HILARIOUS.

(Anybody read DESERT PAWNS:Breaking the Cycle of Reincarceration by Bob Kaplan MD & Gerard LeMoine?)
It's ENLIGHTENING.



Please tell me, he isn't really going to be allowed to work on the inside again after his release?

Wow I was reading that and thinking that now he knows what the guys he was suppose to be protecting feel every day of their lifes that they are in there. Why should he be treated any different than them. He was convicted of a crime, and now he has to serve his punishment. I wonder if by some fluke of fate he does get his conviction overturned and he is let out and allowed back to work if he would treat the inmates any differently now that he has first hand knowledge of what it is like. I also bet that he has it a lot easier than the other guys cause I am sure his brothers are taking care of him.

I think every cop should read that letter to remind them that they are not above the rest and it could happen to them. Karma will always be here and it ain't goin anywhere...
