Dozens Of Inmates Injured Following Prison Guard Attack

On July 6, 2016, dozens of officers at the Mid-State Correctional Facility, outside Utica, conducted an unannounced -- and inexcusably violent -- raid on the prison's inmates. More than 30 prisoners suffered injuries, according to a report in the New York Times, including broken ribs, broken noses, contusions, and forced sodomy.

If you ask most people what a policer officer's job is, they will reply that it is to protect the citizens of the United States. While this is true in many cases, growing changes in the tools and tactics of law enforcement agencies are causing more and more people to wonder how safe they really are.
