Guard who beat inmate at Curran-Fromhold Correctional Facility in video allowed to resign
Pope Francis is set to visit the Curran-Fromhold Correctional Facility on Sunday during his trip to Philadelphia.
Last year, formerCity Paperstaff writer Dan Denvir obtained video of a guard at Philadelphia's Curran-Fromhold Correctional Facility, named Tyrone Glover,beating an inmate named John Steckley.Though the video suggests Steckley may have been mouthing off to Glover, it was, without question, Glover who threw the first punch. But Steckley was ultimately the one charged with assault.

Witnesses had also accused Glover of beating another inmate, Marcellus Temple, who would later be charged with making"terroristic threats."Last October,City Paperpublished the video evidence it had obtained, but Glover was not charged in either incident, nor was he fired from his job. The story also said that Glover testified in a preliminary hearing that Steckley had thrown a punch at him.
