Even an admitted assault on an inmate can’t get someone fired from the Erie County, NY sheriff’s department.
In this case, an inmate in the jail told the officer that another inmate held drugs. Officers searched the other inmate’s cell, but found nothing. The officer then told the inmate snitch that because he had lied, he would have to be punched.
Huh. I’d like to see that written in an inmate handbook.
