Car pooled to our dojo's parent dojo today with another aikido practitioner, who is also deputy warden for our regional prison. We were discussing verbal judo. FYI, his corrections officers are trained to verbally de-escalate whenever possible; swearing is not considered good practice.
His words were along the lines of "if you act like Rambo, they will eventually call you on it; treat the inmates with a modicum of respect, and listen to their complaints, and most problems get handled easily."
Of course, he may not have studied up on his McFly...
