With thanks to Jed West for sending the link, I read a Breitbart News London report today which evoked memories from my 20-plus years career in law enforcement. I worked for almost 13 years in a major metropolitan Colorado county jail, six of those years in uniform and nearly seven as a detective. During that time I saw and investigated my share of cases wherein jail staff members became intimately involved with prisoners. These clandestine relationships always ended in disaster for the staff members, whether male or female. Careers and reputations were destroyed.
Think it can’t happen? It does happen frequently in detention situations, wherein staff members have close daily contact with prisoners, day after day after day. Stories are told, friendships are formed, secrets shared, favors granted, and yes – females fall in love – or male staff members fall in lust – with prisoners. We’re talking about some primal instincts and emotions here. During nearly seven years I traveled throughout the State of Colorado teaching detention and prison staff members in many different institutions how this game is played – and how to stop it.
You may be shocked as you read this brief clip from the Breitbart News London story. I was not at all shocked:
A female prison guard in Switzerland has reportedly “freed” a multiple-time, convicted migrant rapist and fled with him, possibly to Syria, reportsDie Welt.
Hassan Kiko, who came to Switzerland as an illegal migrant from Syria, was convicted of raping a 19-year-old woman in an asylum centre in 2012. After being let out, he raped an underage 16-year-old in 2014. Mr. Kiko was sentenced to four years in prison for the offence and until recently spent it at a detention centre in Zurich.
Now the husband of a nurse alleged to have helped him escape has reported that he fears the pair have fled to Syria, noting a “change in her behaviour” including a new-found interest in the Quran.
Angela Magdici, a guard at the prison, is alleged to have waited for her colleagues to fall asleep on Monday night/Tuesday morning before releasing Mr. Kiko from his cell. The pair reportedly fled in Magdici’s brand new BMW, and are now the subjects of an international arrest warrant…
Read the entire report.
What you will not read is anything about the amount of time and energy Mr. Kiko spent in the company of Ms. Magdici – talking with her about personal issues, confiding in her and she in him, manipulating her emotions, reassuring her, evoking sympathy within her for his unjust situation in life.
This relationship did not happen overnight. It took some time and doing. For a female staff member to be “flipped” and used by the male prisoner he must first get an emotional hook into her. His plan is that eventually she’ll allow the relationship to become sexual – as in sexual intercourse. The opposite is true for a victimized male staff member. His initial attraction to a female prisoner is physical. After the sexual intimacy begins, he falls into love.
Either way, what ultimately results is something akin to what transpired in the Breitbart London Swiss prison story. The compromised staff member does something for the prisoner which constitutes a major crime – smuggling in a weapon or drugs – or facilitating an escape.
I wrote about this sinister “game” in my first novel, A Dark Obsession Times 2.
