Sure, she's probably a future inmate number, but it boils down to what was necessary at the time. There was no need to take her down- she was already in an isolated cell. He could have simply shut the door (the shoes were already off) and told her she was facing more charges.
Oh, I completely agree. He was absolutely, without question, in the wrong and he should face the most harsh consequences possible. I was just talking to Joseph's point as to whether or not I have too much sympathy for her.
