prison at night

It was just after one a.m., and a brightly lit Riker’s Island slept its usual uneasy sleep. The corrections officers were relaxed, but alert. Knowing that things can go from zero to mayhem in a blink, they were trained to always anticipate trouble and handle it when it comes. But the average corrections officer’s understanding of trouble rarely went beyond the kind that would be caused by the inmates, and tonight they would scarcely understand, much less forget, the kind of trouble they were about to encounter. –The Threshold by Matte Black
