The Truth About Walpole State Prison
By The Guard Who Lived It
by Michael McLaughlin, Russell S. Dynda and Warren Jamison
Walpole State Prison, Massachusetts...for a decade its violence, brutality and horror have dominated the front pages of a media which has persisted in drawing a picture of sadistic guards against decent, helpless inmates. Now the other side of the coin is revealed in Screw, the true story of young, brash Michael McLaughlin who enters Walpole as a naïve corrections officer and refuses to play by the inmates' rules.
The events of Screw take place in Massachusetts, but their implications are evident in today's front pages as crime, abetted by lax law enforcement and antiquated correctional practices, reaches out from behind prison bars to corrupt a nation.
