Why are prison guards called hacks?
watching Escape From Alcatraz :)
Because that's all they're good at hacking, in the strong emotional beliefs of the prisoners
i dont know ask Aremell
I thought they were called "Screws"A "hack" is a slang term for someone who does routine/mundane work
It's a slang term that originated from another slang term. They used to be called 'hawks', because they watch the inmates. It just got twisted.
Also could mean horses a $$ carrying keys
