That's how Ar Dept of Corrections runs itself on a daily basis. As a former employee, I was amazed that a new day 1 employee could arbitrarily decide not to follow policy &/or protocol and the damn system would cover itself (if thee employee was connected) and deny any wrong doing. My former supervisor was introducing contraband into a SATP and they knew she was dirty.
