Listning to my scanner all the deputies from out county are headed back to Jeff Davis maybe they've got the situation under control a little bit I could be wrong, remember to keep praying for all the law enforcement officers and correction officers.

The news reports say that no staff members were injured...

I just left Dodge County Hospital visiting one of the injured staff members. I called WALB and told them that their information from the DOC spokeswoman was wrong. The man I spoke to told me that this was his suspicion all along and that he heard the same information from some law enforcement officials and even some DOC employees, but that he could only report the spokeswoman's official word.

From reports, and a personal trip past the prison, I believe that there was no total takeover, but I do tell you that I know of at least one guard that was injured quite badly trying to suppress rioting inmates.

Things are reportedly under control now and I urge you to be wary of what you hear, even from news reports.

As an update: the injured officer from this riot is doing ok. he suffered a severe knee injury and lots and lots of bruises and soreness. it took forever for the news to even acknowledge the fact that an officer was injured. many more facts were also suppressed but eh, that's the government for ya :-) i'm just glad officer conley is ok now and at home with his family

First of all there were no escapes people you need to get your shit right before posting crazy things on the internet second of all i think its wrong for officers to be tazing and throwing gas into inmates cells looking for a cell phone an inmate stabbed someone who had a cell phone and that inmate should have punishment but that doesnt make it right for them to go in there and treat everyone else like roadkill if cops wanted to treat inmates the way they do they should have went and worked at a damn zoo they are people too we all make mistakes doesnt mean we should be treated like roadkill!!!!!!!!!!

They could have, you know, not gone to prison in the first place. Then they could all sleep in their own beds and own a cell phone consequence free. That would have been far too easy to be logical though.

We need not be absent minded when it comes to humanity.... And this is a perfect time for the corrections officers to indulge in the horrific brutality that is other wise frowned upon in the eyes of the public...so make no mistake if you offer a prayer for any parties involved let it be for the inmates.

I truly wish, from the deepest depths of my heart that each and every inmate receives exactly the same pain and grief that they caused to innocents. I truly believe the "road crews" and chain gangs should be re-instated, and the libraries and televisions be removed from their cells.
And yes - if an inmate attacks a correctional officer, then I wish him/her the worst azz-whipping they've ever known.

On the other hand, have a nice day.
