TDC firing felons

Texas has so many prisons that they simply hire enough guards. They have a larger percentage of open slots for corrections officers than any other state.

That's why the Texas Youth Commission got a little slack in background requirements for their hiring -- the juvenile prison system had even more problems finding qualified people to hire than the adult system. Little things like felony convections got overlooked.

Then they started getting some problems. Things like guards, staff, and administrators getting into some sexual escapades with the juvenile inmates.

Now they're firing all those felons they previously hired, even the ones that haven't been raping

Hawkins said some of the agency staffers suspected of abusing youths had criminal records and some didn't.

They should be covering the ass of the inmates. Instead they're covering their own ass.
