Hey guys haven't been around in awhile, love goes out to all our members!:grouphug:
OK what's up with the riot at Elmore , seems everyone wants to keep hush hush because I've not found any news reports on it. But what I've heard is a guy got caught with a cell phone by 2 second shift CO's and he ran from them and ended up in one dorm and they handcuffed him then beat him with their clubs, after he was subdued. With the heat and the overcrowding some of the inmates got mad because of the way this guy was being beat on so they took matters in their on hands and jumped some CO's. :eek:The guy was suppose to have throwed the cell phone and the other inmates hid it while they chased him. The inmates in turn got some of the CO's clubs and beat on them for awhile :thumbsup:and they was threatened with calling in a swat team. All the inmates in the cell told them why don't you come jump me like that and started throwing soap and any thing else they could throw at them . Then they had the gall to go into another dorm and start cussing these inmates who didn't have anything to do with it and they got into it also and was going to fight the CO's and started throwing stuff and cussing them back. Finally the warden came in and talked to the inmates and they told him the 2nd shift CO's was constantly trying them, cussing him and threating them and they was tired of it. He promised them he would do something about it. But if this is true their ass' need to go. NO if ands Butts about it because somebody is going to get hurt bad. You don't fool with people and entice these guys in this type heat and crowded conditions because you lose your cool when your being enticed into fighting with them and most of these guys are Not going to set back and watch a fellow inmate be beat down in front of them. I'm surprised it hasn't already happened and the outcome be tragic. We all know it's a matter of time and I personally think it's time for the federal goverment step in and clean up this damn mess. No one else is they have just skipped all around the problem instead of fixing and sure they have received plenty of suggestions because we all have wrote them with ideas and I know some of them are sensible ones. Some of these guys are just being held for far to long. Start paroling them out! Duh! There is help out here and families more than willing to help their love one suceed in staying out. because some of the government funded programs are a hoax and everyone knows it. It' all about money! But how many lives is it going to cost before you stop playing around? Your NOT rehabilitating but institionizaling them.
This has went on for far to long. Legislators you need to get busy on passing some laws and making some retroactive bills to help relieve this screwed up situation, it's a damn embarassment to our state, we are so far behind on the prison system it's to the point of being STUPID!!!!!!! SO if anyone else knows about this let it all out. That's what's wrong with this system everything is kept under wraps. And the inmates are afraid to talk. I expect I&I to get involved in this and get rid of this BIG-HEADED CO's. :angry:

I've heard the same thing. The entire prison was on lock down until today, I believe. They took the TVs and everyone had to stay on their beds. They did not send any mail out but they did receive mail last night. They were escorted to chow and back to the dorms. I agree that something needs to be done to the COs. He slapped an inmate while the inmate was in handcuffs!!!!!! I think that some of the COs treat the inmates so bad at times. We treat our pets better than the inmates are being treated right now. The heat is unbearable and the fans that they have in the dorms are blowing hot air!!!! What is wrong with the state? I know that they are there doing their time for their wrong doings, but damn!!!!!!:angry:

You are so right and the news needs to report these incidents or DOC, because it's only going to get worse, when you look at the ratio of CO's versus inmates they are way out numbered and a person is going to take so much before they snap, and you can't blame them they are allowed to behave this way with revenge being taken out on our loved ones if they talk. Well maybe the tables have turned and they need to weed out these smart ass ones. They could start with visitation! If you know what I mean! Let's all say a prayer that no one is hurt or any lives lost, because this IS a serious situation and I dont see it ending until they release these inmates that should have been released along time ago and give them a chance at doing right. Don't just keep locking them up and throwing away the key! HELLO!:confused:

Well I know my son has been in several different prisons through out the state and he was just freaked out by it. He said he had never seen anything like this happen. SOMEBODY needs to check it out and hold them accountable for beating on this guy after he was handcuffed. It's abuse and if they did this in front of the other inmates what happened when he was taken out of their sight. I believe they are playing with fire with their actions not just at Elmore but the others as well. Isn't the SCHR already investigating assaults on inmates at different prisons after Farron Barksdale's death? Well we will see if this is reported and what is done about it. SCHR if your still checking out abuse this is one to add to the list of concerns.

Hi There Boflipflops I have missed everyone here too.
About the only thing I have this website and they did have a lawsuit against the Alabama prison system for abuse against Faron Barksdale along with some other inmates from Saint Clair and maybe Holman. Not sure what become of it. It may Be on their website. The thing about it is that it has to be a class action compliant or a group of inmates coming together and willing to file a complaint. this guy may be able to be added to this suit by contacting them. We all are concerned and want the prison commissioner Richard Allen and Govenor Riley to address this. We not only want it we demand it.:angry:

By the way hope all is well with you, as for us well we are just hanging in there. Same 'ol same 'ol. But I have to tell you it is getting old enough is enough you know.
Something has to be done with this crap because it has become more than a ticking time bomb. I don't want my loved one hurt and I know all of you don't either. But with CO's that take the liberties they did here they have NO place in this type enviroment they can not handle their job and need to be terminated!
