Employees of the Oakdale Federal Correctional Complex say inmates sometimes taunt them now. “A lot of them think it’s funny,” says Tiffany Kirklin. “One inmate told me he made more this month than I have. And it’s true because he got a paycheck and I did not.” The pressures are intense. One prison guard attempted suicide recently. (He is expected to make a full recovery.)
