Wolf Essay

The Wolf
We called *Jamie Masterson “Wolf” because when things got crazy, you could expect a long Virginia backwoods howl from Wolf. He did it, to relieve stress. Everyone within ear-shod, could relate to it. We all wanted to howl sometimes.

Wolf, myself, Sergeant Bosworth and Claude Von Plueren of hung out together after work. To relieve stress, we'd tell stories and drink a few beers. Wolf liked to laugh a lot and he admired Sergeant Bosworth.
In his early twenties, and fresh out of the military, Wolf stood tall and as skinny as a rail. His broken front tooth, was his most identifying feature. Wolf and I popped a few cell doors together and I respected Wolf for that.

On October 16th, 1987, Wolf and I stood near the bottom of the stairs of 5A and 5B. We shook down inmates as they came back from mainline. Inmates walked in single file, behind a 3 ft rail when returning to Super Max. A few feet to my left Wolf pat searched inmate *Nick Bender.
A short man, in his 30's, with a beard, Bender was the leader of the Aryan Brotherhood gang in Super Max. If Bender gave an order, his soldiers obeyed it. He was the most powerful inmate in Super Max. I turned, just as Bender stuck his finger in Wolf's face.

“YOU’D BETTER NEVER TOUCH ME AGAIN!” Wolf looked over at me, smiled and Bender stomped up the upstairs to 5A and 5B and then up to #7 walk. Wolf and I followed the line of inmates.

On 7 walk, Bender waited for Wolf and confronted him again. The rest of the inmates stood in front of their cells, but refused to go in.

Wolf had managed to piss-off Super Max's leader of the Aryan Brotherhood and, he had done it in front of his men. I don't think Wolf realized the gravity of the situation. Inmates would do anything Bender told them to do. Even if meant killing a couple of officers. Fifteen cells away from me, Wolf stood next to Bender. They began to argue.

Several white inmates formed a gauntlet between Wolf and I. If I hit or shoved one of them, they'd all jump me. One or two of them, might even have a shank.
“GET THE HELL OUT OF MY WAY!”

Meanwhile, I could see Wolf and Bender still arguing. I couldn't hear what they were saying, but it looked ugly. A few seconds later, Bender shoulder butted Wolf and knocked him backwards. Bender threw a couple of punches at Wolf, but most of them just grazed his shoulders.

Officer Shayne Richards and I, pushed our way past a dozen inmates to get between Bender and Wolf. Wolf stepped backwards and called a 10-5 (emergency) over his radio. Staff responded, and all the inmates were forced into their cells.

We all wrote memorandums about the incident, and Bender was placed in 5C lockup for striking Wolf. The rest of the Aryans were furious, and that fury was directed at “Wolf.” A rumor quickly spread that Bender might get charged for assaulting Wolf.

Nine days after the assault, Wolf wrote a new memorandum. In his report, he stated that Bender had NOT assaulted him but he was guilty of “creating a...
