Screwed by Ronnie ThompsonMy name is Ronnie Thompson. Being a prison officer was something I used to be proud of. I soon realised the truth of what its like working as a screw, though.Its afucking headache. Corruption, danger, violence. Welcome to my world.
Ronnie Thompson was just an ordinary guy. That is, until hebecame a prison officer. By the time he started work at HMP Romwell, he realised he was actually a nurse, a copper, a probation officer, a carer, a councillor, a social worker and, of course, an incarcerator all in one. Oh, and a punch bag for the cons and bosses.
In SCREWED, Ronnie tells it like it is. Hereveals what really goes on behind bars-the times when force is necessary and used, and when it is unnecessary but still used.He exposes the underworld of bent screws, the drugs they traffic, the firms they work for and what they get paid for their sins.He shows how it is left down to a small group of officers to control an over-flowing prison, keep an eye out for corrupt govenors, and dodge the deluded human rights campaigners. Ultimately, he shows us that being a good screw doesnt always mean sticking to the rules...

Prison slang is an argot used primarily by criminals and detainees in correctional institutions. It is a form of anti-language. Prison slang has existed as long as there have been crime and prisons; in Charles Dickens ' time it was known as " thieves' cant ". Words from prison slang often eventually migrate into common usage, such as " snitch ", " ducking ", and " narc ". Prison slang, like other types of slang and dialects , varies by region.
