We have recently seen an effort in the press by a few misguided individuals to attack Tom Marino and question his support for correctional officers. It is unfortunate that people chose to use this difficult time for the federal correctional officer community to score cheap political points against Mr. Marino. Instead of playing politics, we need to use this time to come together and work to solve some of the major safety issues at our federal prisons.
