How prison guards earn their money

About "3 Tehachapi prison guards stabbed" (April 4, Page B-5): The inmates who attacked the officers were in prison for murder and attempted murder. One was serving 117 years. I think the next time members of the public are of the opinion that guards make too much money ("Start cutting budget with prison guards' OT," April 3, editorial), they should apply for a job where the clients try to kill you with homemade knives. Please, give us a break. Think about what we go through every day.
