Also, I can't believe this is the ONLY coverage of a prison riot involving 53 inmates and numerous injuries.

Regardless of the race of the inmate. Why is the proson system allowing such mayham. It is the judicial system that is at fault. It is the people running the prisons that are currupt, The state is wasting money on people who lack the skills of the trade that they have signed up for.and our compensated by us CALIFORNIA TAXS PAYERS (SPEAKING OF THOSE Correctional officers WHO ARE EMPLOYED) Although this was not one of my family members, Your hurful comments are not only childish but you lack the respect of the inmates family who had nothing to do with the crime that there loved one commited on being in there. If you dont know the facts of that inmates case then you shouldnt be speaking of what you dont know about. and by the way to spell the race of the person who was murdered is MEXICAN, not messikan.. but then we could tell you are not a very intelligent person by your comments.
We should really save the state money and release some of the non violent criminals instead of keeping them in failed prison system that only costs the working class people more money to house them which would be considered a pety crime out in the streets. What better way to find ways not to relase inmates to keep the money flowing in.

I don't appreciate any of the childish comments. My brother was one of the men involved in the riot who had no choice but to fight back because it's thier life they are fighting for. And he is a not full mexican for those racist people leaving ignorant comments. Hopefully you will never have to get the news that one of your loved ones have been hurt and flown to the hospital and you can do nothing but wait because the prison doesn't call and let the family know anything, you have to wait for a call from another inmate. It is not a good feeling!

Your brother is idiot for putting himself in prison. I'm pretty sure this isn't the first time this idiot has gotten in trouble with the law.

you get close to the fire, you'll probably get burned

Whether or not you have family or friends in the prison, be it inmates or correctional officers, you have to be human to feel compassion for anyone injured. So to all those cold hearted b*****s, f**k off and stop posting dumb ass comments. better yet, stop reading about prison incients.

Have compassion for criminals? Why? I have more compassion for dogs than these rejects of life. I'm sorry if you have idiot family or friends in the clink but stop being a sissy whiner...

Where is AZ Joe Arpaio when you need him. I bet if you keep these inmates on a healthy 2200 calorie diet these guys wouldn't be causing riots... too weak. But NOOOO here in liberal sissy California have to care for the inmates feelings and social needs. boo hoo poor inmates..

Riots in prison are very serious problem. Innocent people do get caught up in this madness. You have very bad guards that work for the prison for all the wrong reasons. You have Wardens and Guards playing God. When you go to prison for a crime you are being punish for that crime at least ten times more than warrant.The judge has already sentence you to your time. Why do we have Wardens And Guards dehumanizing inmates with tax payors money? I am a tax payor and I do not want my funds to be used in that way. At the end of the day that guard or Warden goes homes. It is inhuman to not feed or give immediate medical care or to lock someone in a very small cell in the dark with nothing for days and months and sometimes years. I would like to challenge anyone to sit in a room very small room with nothing and see how long you can stay there without losing something. With that said i am not judging anyone by their crime because they are still human and in America we do have rights. We are not any other country. We need change with prison reform. We need to be better about caring and loving people who are not worthy of love.

No the problem is CDCr hiring criminals to guard the criminals. Just look at the guards at Salinas Valley.
And who was it that turned in Timothy Rodriguez? An INMATE! And because he did that, he saved 2 lives.

I'm sorry you have friends and or family in prison, but they chose to go there by breaking laws. No is is saying there are corrupt guards... but I think prisons should be as ruthless as possible against inmates. Make it as rough as possible so that they never want to return or make a would be criminal think twice. I'm sick and tired of pussy Californians wanting criminals to live a comfortable life in prison.

California prisons need to be run like Joe Arpaio runs his... no special treatment!!!

Why would I be eating my words?

if I ever do something stupid that gets me in jail then so be it, that is my fault. I'm responsible for my actions, I wouldn't go around blaming other people.

Just the other day I saw this mom with her two sons (both in their teen) at the store. The two kids were wearing white sneakers with bright blue shoe laces, they both had blue braided crosses and the oldest had "sur" tattooed on his arm.

It's sad to hear the moms say " I didn't know he was in a gang, he was a good kid" when something stupid happens.

That's just one example of stupid people.

Am I free of sin? Absolutely not, but I try to live a normal life that includes not getting in trouble with the law.

I'm not saying you're stupid, but don't give people the chance.
