    Hopefully the prison guards weren't playing Jailhouse Rock.

    An inmate at the scene told AP that correctional officers did not attempt to halt the inmate-on-inmate violence as bodies "literally stacked on top of each other." The inmate, who said most of the inmates had gang affiliations, exchanged messages on condition of anonymity because he wasn't supposed to have a cellphone and feared retribution from other inmates.

    That's because most inmates are anti-social savages.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    LOL. Some of them are just addicts of the wrong drug. The AB actually draws it's strength from prison. Our rehabiltation is a dismal national shame

    I have no idea what the "AB" is. Anyway, most prison inmates (i.e. well over half) are in for serious crimes ranging from murder, to rape to grand theft. There are bad people in the world. Some of them end of up in prison. It's not "Prohibition" or the corporate bogeyman. Aren't you a little old to be this naive?

    Contrary to leftrumor, our prisons are NOT full of "peaceful pot smokers". That is nonsense. To do serious time , you have to be convicted of a serious crime. Non-violent offenders are generally incarcerated in less-severe locations than are violent ones.
