Hello, being a CCA/KCCF employee who is being forced to fight for my dignity and honor and CCA is trying to destroy that because I am a "whistleblower". I know about the corruption first hand. I know about the cover ups, first hand... I saw it!! Does any one really care? Does anyone want to really know? From someone who has LIVED it for 3 1/2 years?

Hello, yep, Lake Erie... The Assistant Warden over Operations in KCCF in Colorado was sent to Lake Erie.. He was my Assistant Warden at KCCF in 2010 when I started there. During the whole Lake Erie controversy, that Assistant Warden was sent to Ohio's other CCA facility after being disciplined and then the Warden at Lake Erie let go, and the Warden from Bent Co CCA sent there to Lake Erie to take over. Hmmmm.... Well, that same Assistant Warden was FORCED to resign from KCCF... I wonder why? Well, the fact that the other Assistant Warden was soooo very happy to be getting rid of his competition. The AW left is a moron with no education but only an ex marine who hates inmates. He told me that himself. Seems no matter where CCA goes it creates nothing but death and destruction where ever it goes, lives, offenders, employees, and the AW that was left at KCCF bullied me for over 3 years until he got me fired for virtually nothing. Good ole Lake Erie... yeah, there is a story behind that one, and its nothing to be celebrated!!
