Prison Riot Erupts at Calipatria State Prison
A riot at Calipatria State Prison Saturday afternoon leaves 35 inmates injured.
Mostly, it was bumps and bruises ... but two were taken to pioneer memorial hospital with more serious injuries.
Lt. Shawn Mclinn with Calipatria Sate Prison described the riot as "everything, fighting, stabbing, kicking ... that's fighting."
Gosh, my heart is with those who have a loved one at Calipatria. I went through the nightmare at Chino with so many others last August. The not knowing for weeks was the worst to go through. My sincere blessings to you Tiffy, and all the rest of you too. You are in my prayers.

Thank you Kima. My man's father is a 3 striker doing life at calpat. He was in this riot and is currently in the hole for it and he thinks he will probably be transfered out. He told me it was a crip-blood thing. He asked me to send him some paper and stamps and told me he would write me with more info. I will keep you guys posted on the situation with the riot once I hear more.
