Prisoner vs. Guard

This photo was taken on June 26, 2014 in the Cook County Jail in Chicago. A guard is guiding the inmate toward where he is supposed to go and the inmate is handcuffed. In many jails, including the St. Lawrence Correctional Facility the relationship between inmates and guards can be strained because of the power disputes between the two people.
