Several people were charged, but due to lack of evidence, the sick prick behind the whole thing, 37 year old David Stewart, he got away with it. Since the trial, the calls have stopped. Incidents similar to the one depicted in the film happened at several McDonald's, KFC and Taco Bell amongst other places...usually small towns in the middle of butt fuck nowhere. After raiding Stewart's house, they found applications for the police force, along with loads of police type shit. Basically this Corrections Corporation of America worker was a police force reject who wanted to command a position of authority.
Still, even then I questioned what I was doing there. The only reason I'm sharing this story is as a lesson that it doesn't matter what state you're in, or what happens...always question authority. Always make sure they're for real. There are some sick fucks out there who will take advantage at any given opportunity.
