Topic: The Club House / Inmate entitlement!?!?

True story: An inmate had a shank and was running after another inmate. The officers cornered him and gave him several direct orders to drop the weapon. At the same time the other officer was calling for assistance. The inmate was threatening to cut both officers. When the captain got there he ordered the pepperball gun, the less than lethal shotgun, and the situation bag (containing the grenades).When it was delivered the captain began to talk the inmate into giving him the weapon. He gave the inmate his word that there would not be a hair on his head harmed. The inmate gave up the weapon and that captain escorted the inmate to the hole to make sure that no harm would come to him and no force was used, which is good.
But my question is: What message does that send to every other inmate in the block? That they can threaten an officer with a weqpon and no harm will come to him? You know that every inmate in the block was watching this happen and this inmate was rewarded for bad behavior…. What are your thoughts?
