Often conflicts occur in a rec yard or rec area. When the window warrior sees that there is someone who can beat his ass in the rec yard, he may start screaming and making gestures at the person to put on a display that he wants to fight. This will cause the correctional officer to keep the two separate at all times in the future to prevent the conflict, benefiting the window warrior because he doesn't have to face the conflict and get beat up or punked out in front of everyone. He can then continue to talk shit from behind the safety of his window while maintaining his tough image to his fellow inmates.
