Corruption in the Division of Corrections Volume II captured the ongoing events in the life of a female ex-Correctional Officer II who was victimized inside the corrupt system of the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services from 2015 to 2020. It exposed the obstacles she encountered on her road to seeking justice as a result of the wrongful termination of her appointment, denial of medical treatment, unpaid wages, and illegal medical documentations. The book further exposed the rot in other critical institutions- the Federal EEOC and the Civil Rights Commission, which she approached in search of justice as her case was shockingly compromised in both agencies. She has shown a lot of resilience in her consistency and determination to seek for justice inspite of the series of disappointments from the DPSCS, the Federal EEOC, and the Civil Rights Commission. The questions she asks are as follows: Is the system so corrupt that it cannot give her justice in the America of today? Is justice for her close by, still far in the future, or even never going to come?
