Photo of a Prison Shank

[Black-and-white photocopy of a photo. A metal makeshift blade (shank) lies on a scratched table. The author wrote next to the blade with a red ink pen.]

Readers, this is an actual weapon cut out of a locker in Green Bay Corr. Inst. It is the product of a crazy man—no sane convict would use a knife with a hinge for a handle! And, while it looks deadly, it was cut from "mild steel," meaning low-carbon steel, which will bend when it hits bone. Of course, the hinge will bend too!
