The Officers Thought out the film, the officers showed abuse of power and authority through their inferiority in cycles of violence and machismo. Throughout the film, the officers showed they had to conform and be “top dog” to hold their power while they are dealing with kids who are coming of age. Right Warden Sands gives Davis, Angel, & Butch proper procedure into entering the correctional center. Goodyear tells Davis and Frank to pull up their pants because there will be no gang activity in his unit. Goodyear is concerned about Butch’s eye and wants to find out the truth. The other officer tells Banks to knock it off when he hits another inmate in the head. Goodyear helps Davis when he calls for help. He runs water over him in the shower, makes him drink water and stick his finger down his mouth so he could spit out the drugs. Warden Sands and his boss looked at Butch case and decide that if he doesn’t get into any trouble he will get out in a week.
