Sadly, they were on lockdown since the 30th of June. They were let off of lockdown on the 2nd of July and went right back on lockdown. There's no estimated time for them to be off, either. Apparently, they continue to fight and carry on so the warden won't let them off.

Word is that Lewisburg USP may be off lockdown on Monday. Some inmates are working in UNICOR and some other jobs already. They transferred out about 40 inmates to make room for 25 or so in the SHU for investigation. Z.

They are still being held on lockdown as of today. They've been given two hours to do things they need to do, but lockdown is still on. In addition to what Zelda mentioned, two gang leaders were transfered out of the facility to FPC Allenwood due to the issues mentioned.

Lewisburg camp was on lockdown a few days ago. I heard they had a "Walk Off". Everything is back to normal now... they must have caught up to him.
