Fighting back

Prisons Officers (another type of duncey, eh) want to have a firearm issued to each for off duty hours. The reason: several have been 'taken out' under questionable circumstances.

What I have noticed however, is that all those deaths occurred while the officers were drunk and liming. So my question is: Is a drunk prison officer any safer to himself, family or the public? 

Giving these arses firearms is like pouring gasoline on a fire.

Now I have no bias against them besides stupidity... it is their brutal behaviour of prisoners that make them targets when those same prisoners are released. So primarily the situation is of their own making, and the proposed solution is a pretty shiny tinfoil that can support no rationalisation.

The prisoners are only fighting back.
