The death of Jose Riveria, a federal correctional officer who was killed in the line of duty at the United States Penitentiary in Atwater, Calif. June 20, 2008, brings more attention to AFGE's contention that there needs to be more safety measures for officers in the Bureau of Prisons. Bryan Lowry, the president of the council of prison locals, joins us to talk about the case.
