Default What really caused the Holman Prison Riot in Alabama on April 5, 2011?

Does anyone have info coming from Holman about yesterday's riot? Some news reports say it started with a cell phone, but some news reports don't even say that much. Any news from inmates at Holman about what really happened?

I have a pal at Holman although he is on death row but I havent had a letter in a couple of weeks. Most of the reports I have read say it was over a cell phone

Contraband is brought into prisons in several ways. Yes, employees are one major source. If they're caught they are prosecuted. However, inmate's family members are paying for the contraband items. It's prison. It's meant for punishment. Personally, I think they should install signal blockers and solve the cell phone problem and every prison should have K-9's to search daily for drugs. It would be a lot easier to find the source of contraband with more strict measures.

and by the way cell phones can be used for crime but there is people like my man who would use it to call his 2 little girls who love and miss there dad more than anything and he would get to tell them hes in their heart and tell them how much he loves them every night!!! they deserve that... i know guys like that in there who have made stupid mistakes the only difference is is that they got caught and the rest of us didnt weve all made mistakes any guy who can make my angels faced light up is not all bad

I think the poor guy who barrowed a cell to call home and say he was being released,only to be caught and have to serve another five years says why I think trying to even borrow a cell phone is a very bad idea.
Of course if you never getting out and are in shu then it is probably understandable as to why you would be giving that thousand dollars to get some contact with your loved ones.
Even Charles Manson was able to get a cell phone while in shu.Money talks.
