As requested: IAmA (former) prison guard who worked on death row. AMAA
I worked as a Georgia Corrections Officer back in early 2000. I was 18 when I started and did it for almost 2 years. Since then I've left corrections and went on to be a police officer.
I worked at Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison, the only Georgia prison that housed death row inmates. I worked in death row, segregation/protective custody, and two "death watches" prior to scheduled execution.
The only proof I have is a uniform I kept (AMA is over, deleted for my safety) Ask away.
Edit: Thanks for the great questions everyone. Was a fun 3 hour AMA. I gotta get some sleep now. I'll try to answer a few more later. Inbox me if you have any direct questions. Good night reddit.
