PHOENIX — Corrections Officer Chris Russett suffered a traumatic brain injury when he was attacked from behind by an inmate in Arizona's Florence Prison. "After he had knocked me down, he sat on top of me at punching my head, so his intent was to kill me," Russett said.

So did they kill the mental psycho inmates? Probably not because they have rights.

Sad how this is law the world do' s don't what you can and can't but now the DOC knows that mental I'll HUMAN beings need help to always be careful with and yet things happens even out here....like in Peoria how 17yr old young man his throat was slit because of hearing ra0 music and because a mental I'll guy was revealed prior to the incident this was caused ...it was to a threat to the Caucasian male released from prison....IT ALL BOILS DOWN TO THE HEAD OF THE DOC APPARENTLY SEEMS LIKE THEY DON'T CARE OF THEIR STAFF AND THE COMMUNITY STEP DOWN AND LET SOMEONE ELSE DO THE RIGHT JOB THAT'LL REALLY TAKE THEIR JOB SERIOUSLY AND FOR STAFF AND INMATES CARE AS WELL!
