A CO was using Google Maps to show addresses for an offender because, apparently, the offender wanted to see where his daughter lived.

"his daughter" being "the CO's daughter" or "the offender's daughter"?

I would hope the CO wouldn't be showing an inmate pictures/maps of where the CO's family lived, but at this point I wouldn't put anything past anyone.

I assume the offending CO has been relieved of his duties or will be very soon. Especially as I am sure that he/she only has the inmate's word that the address they're looking for is actually the home of a family member and that this "alleged" daughter would want her father to have directions to her home.

It was the inmate's daughter's address.  Yes, the CO was relieved of his duties post haste.

In Florida, we have CO's who are killed by inmates every year. Usually, there is another CO who is found to be at fault. So senseless and tragic.

Wow.  Just wow.  In the entirety of my state's correctional history (1887), only 21 officers have been killed, 11 of which happened in one riot.  I cannot imagine being a CO in Florida.  So senseless and tragic.

The federal prisons here have lower rates than the state prisons do.

Maybe it wasn't his idea of a good sandwich, but if the customer wants ketchup, and you have ketchup, why (at best) lose a customer over a couple of cents that are the company's, not yours, and (at worst) end up with jail time?  :o

As far as I know, Subway doesn't carry ketchup and never has. It might be one of the ones in a Wal-Mart, in which case, yeah, the customer could go buy his own. But that's a bizarre reason for either guy to suddenly go caveman on each other.

--- End quote ---

It is-it was mentioned in the article.  Not that he should have to buy a bottle of ketchup.

--- End quote ---

What do you mean? Of course he should. The Subway is under no obligation to provide it for him.

--- End quote ---

The customer is under no obligation to buy his sandwiches from subway.  The article didn't say whether or not he asked for ketchup from the beginning or after the sandwich was made.  If I order a sandwich with an ingredient a restaurant doesn't have the employee needs to inform me of that fact upfront.
