Post Three Inmates Stabbed At House Of Corrections

Here we go again! What the hell can we do about this? Where do we begin??? Our loved ones in inside who do not cause or get involved in this...especially many older inmates, many who have more than served their time, do not deserve this.

Here's the story from WJZ-TV:

You are so telling the truth. and I haven't spoken to my husband in about a week because of that stupid a$$ phone company T-netix or whoever it is. I'm just hoping my husband wasn't hurt in that incident, but he is gonna suffer for it, and if this crap keeps happening, its gonna have an affect on our visits. The closer he gets to me, the more crap that pops off

I don't think the prison system wants this to continue to happen either. The COs are just as frightened as some of the inmates. This is just a bigger problem than can possibly be handled quickly. This has probably always happened, its just that since the media is focused on Maryland prisons right now and the officers themselves are scared, it is getting much more publicity than it normally would have. There has always been violence in prisons, but thank god the media is giving this problem the attention it deserves. My brother recently got out of jail in Baltimore and he said everyone carries a shank. He didn't because he said he didn't want to have to use it, but its just a risk you take. Some of these inmates are obviously in prison for a reason and violence is the only thing they understand especially if they are not looking at freedom for a long time. He told me one story of one new inmate who was targeted by several others for some reason....they kept saying they were going to get him....when they finally did and he pulled out his own shank... it was the only thing that saved him. Because they weren't expecting this skinny little guy to fight back.

I don't think that they do care as long as the violence is inmate to inmate.
Now, if a CO gets stabbed then they care! Also, they try to blame the current situation on gangs. That's the hot political topic right now. Most of the latest violence is not gang related.
They also need to do something about the corruption which includes many of those who are wearing badges.
The lockdown has not stopped the violence so when are they going
try something else. Denying our loved ones visits, showers and commisary is not the answer. They deserve to be treated humanely and with dignity.
