Who wants to bet the Department of Corrections and they're union purposely caused and released this information since the Governor just recently cut 1 billion from the budget. Get a life, do you job or find employment elsewhere! Plenty of intelligent hard working people need jobs right now!

Why aren't Jewish inmates ever involved?

John, so inmates would never fight if correctional officers were doing what you think are "their jobs" and intelligent people would better control this? What should they do? Sit on top of them? Keep them handcuffed to their beds? Tell them to "Play nice"? May be it's the fact that liberal judges have given inmates too may rights and that the prisons are so overcrowded that we have to house inmates in dorm settings instead of prison cells. Or that we have to let them out to yard together. Or that we are lucky if there is one or two officers per dorm housing hundreds of inmates. Walk a day in a correctional employee's (not just officer's) shoes and you'll understand that what makes sense to you or I, doesn't work in this environment due to policies or politics. The inmates allow us to play in their world, but they are the ones who really control what goes on in inside the walls, John.

Thin out the prisons by killing ALL of 'em! Your a prisoner, you have the right to die, if your give up the right to die, then you will be killed anyways; if you cannot afford to die, a lawyer will screw up your case and will be used against you so we can kill him too.

Couldn't have been much of a "riot" if only 4 were injured.

I guess you don't have to pass an IQ test to own a computer and read the papeer on line.

FYI It doesn't take much to get thrown in jail. Keep running your mouth off and you will find out.

Was at Chino Valley Hospital in Chino, Ca. Guess what the prison inmates were there on the second floor! Guarded by 5 Sheriffs...

Seriously? OK. How 'bout we actually put into effect the rights “given” in the CDCr SETTLEMENT?
How long ago was that??? Don't tell me you forgot about that little piece of dirty laundry.

Funny how the CCPOA (Corrections Officers UNION) is just now admitting in open forums that overcrowding is a REAL problem in California's prisons now that their salaries and bennies are takin' a direct hit from budget cuts. Before it was just “inmates whining over nothing,” right?

How does it feel to wake up and realize you're stuck in the same sinking ship as the inmates? The state doesn't care about you or your family either. Oh wait a minute. You're not actually STUCK in that ship are you? The state pays you quite well for those life jackets, don't they? Last I heard, 70% of the CDCr's 10 Billion Dollar ANNUAL budget was alloted to salaries and bennies. Care to share the exact details of those pension packages with our fellow taxpayers?

I thought not. Wouldn't want them to start putting 2+2 together, would we? 10 Billion Dollars and we still have one inmate a week dying a preventable death? And do you really expect us to believe you're “rehabilitating” anybody with NO PROGRAMS?“Prisoner's rights”???? Give me a break.

It may not make sense to you but the taxpayers get it. The jig is up, bud. Put on your life vest and start swimming for shore-my Grandma wants your job.

It was just a lame litlle fight between the southsiders and the blacks, most likely over a drug debt. I just left CRC Norco, was there 2 years!I wish now I would of been a corrections officer seeing how they are the real dealers. They are making a killing bringing the dope and cell phones into the prison. I mean $400 for a twenty dollar wallmart prepaid phone, man I was in the wrong business!

I have a relative @ this loc. and it's no fun to stumble across stupid comments made by close minded people or simply just ignorant people. The CO's play a role in all this just as much as the inmates do...it'd be best to stay neutral of all of this and not be so negative towards the inmates as well as the CO's.

I think they should put some of them crooked, disrespectful ass guards in prison and let them go through what the convicts go through.
