Female Prison Guards Can't Sue Over Masturbating Inmates

Unless a judge rules otherwise
There's some jobs that, as a woman, you just wouldn't want, and being a prison guard is one of them. Here's why:

A group of female guards have been denied the right to sue the state of California over thousands of instances where male inmates have exposed themselves, ejaculated, and much, much more. The women claim this perverted and indecent behavior has been going on since 1989 -- and the state hasn't done anything to stop it.

But Judge Phyllis Hamilton (yes, a woman) denied them the ability to sue the state as a class, saying, among other things, the complaints of the plaintiffs -- including 10 women, as well as the estate of a deceased former guard -- are not similar enough to move forward as a class action lawsuit. Apparently, a there's many different ways to classify the offense of an ejaculating man.

The women said that there were at least 500 reports of exhibitionist inmate behavior at Pelican State Bay State Prison alone, according to the complaint.

The claim that officials at Pelican Bay perpetually ignored complaints about this perverted behavior aimed at women -- and in fact made matters worse. After plaintiff Marta Hastings complained, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation manager Joseph McGrath still transferred two more inmates into her unit -- both of whom were known exhibitionists.

Another woman, Kimberley Morin, who runs a treatment group for inmates in the Sacramento facility, claims that inmates "constantly expose their genitals, and masturbate and ejaculate during such groups," even though the inmates are supposed to wear special exposure-control jumpsuits. Yet, prison officials have refused to remove these inmates from her group.

Judge Hamilton said that there's no evidence that the women exhausted their administrative remedies.

Moreover, the only commonality among these complaining women is that they all witnessed exhibitionist behavior -- and it would be too difficult to calculate damages as a class, the judge wrote.

Well... it's a case of women in a men's prison being given total access; whereas men guards in a women's prison do not have such open total access.  There are many unemployed men who could use these jobs which would automatically stop the supposed exhibitionism. To the point women do not belong in men's prisons, men's locker rooms, or any other place where a male can and should do the job. Until that fact is faced, these "incidents" are going to continue to occur. Our society is overrun with boys in the bodies of men primarily because they have been raised by single working moms...the kind that gladly take jobs in men-only environments.  You have to wonder is it economics or a case of deviant behavior that society does not want to confront; The female pervert.

I  was a  male night prison guard at CIW in Frontera-Chino California Prison for women where the Manson girls were and still are. and  I used to see many girls masturbating on the night shift in their beds as we have to do counts every few hours so you gotta look into the cell door window to count them. any way I was never offened by seeing them wacking off. alot of the women convicts would try to have sex with the male prison guards at night. some male guards did have sex with some of the women but most do not. but it does happen there often. things are alot differernt in female prisons than male prisons.

Oh Please! If you all can't take the heat get out of the kitchen. You all want to magically instill morals on misbehaving men who are locked up because they lack morals. Pull your big girl pants up or find another job.

You got a job where you deal with asocial scum bags and you want then to not offend you?  So delusional, why would you go to the trouble to get a job where you know this is going to happen and then complain when it does.

These idiots saw $$$$ signs when some scum bag lawyer waved money in front of them.
