My BF transfered out a couple months ago. There's a link on my 7/10 post that will keep you updated on reports of the trouble there.


USP- BIG SANDY- SPETEMBER 26, 2009

At 11:58a.m., approximately 50 inmates began fighting between Corridor#1 and Corridor#2, Mainline was going on and approximately 50 more gang related inmates came pouring out of Food Service to join in on the fight. There were numerous weapons used in the fight as this fight lasted for quite a while with sting balls, pepper ball guns along with other lethal munitions were used to gain control of the fight. Several inmates were injured. One inmate was transported to a local hospital with 15 stab wounds. He was treated and brought back to the institution. One (1) staff member was taken to the
local hospital with a stab wound to his hand, a possible broken elbow and bulging disks in his back, He was transported by ambulance to a trauma center in West Virginia were his injuries are being treated. Other staff received bruises but otherwise, they are doing okay. The U.S.P. Big Sandy is locked down until future notice.

I actually went up there....imagine getting to the gate only to be told that they just went on lockdown 5 minutes earlier! I came all the way from Boston It hurt real bad and to top if off, they are probably gonna be lockdown for a LONG time because staff got hurt. They're not going to take that lightly.

Default Big sandy

I hate this Federal Penn with a passion my brother
who is a lifer was @Big Sandy for almost 4 yrs and the
whole entire time they stayed on lockdown even
when we were coming a 12hour ride to visit.
This place sucks my brother was xfrd closer
to home in PA. USP CANNAN and he seems to like
deal with it much better as BIG SANDY,
had a lot of DC boys who love to start riots and trouble.
Good luck to all with family in this spot. It truly puts the
meaning in Federal Camp.

Default Big sandy

My brother who is a lifer, is now @ USP CANNAN
but I can remember coming 12hour rides from
PENNSYLVANIA and I am telling you this spot
abosolutely SUCKS. They keep a riot going on
and 24hour lockdowns. He said he has not dealt
with this @ USP CANNAN like he did for the almost
4yrs he was@ BIG SANDY...He said him and his celly
literally would never sleep my brother sent me pictures
to where I wanted to cry the bags and tiresome look
he would have on his face not knowing what inmate on
the block is going to snap off that day and fight another
guy because of where he is from. My brother told me
that the DC boys and PHILLY boys always fought.
Serious Federal Camp right here.

Has anybody heard anything about a wall in the administration building collapsing and they might be closing BS cause the ground they built the prison on is sinking? My BF said someone told him this (he's now at Petersburg) and another inmate told him this. I told him I think the CO's like to start far out rumors to see how far they get and I hadn't heard anything about it. Anyway..just know you will hear alot of far out crap over the years!!!

Yes, I heard that. I heard that the guards had no choice but to kill him because he was trying to kill another inmate. It's bananas in there!

Hello, I want to introduce myself. I am completely new here so please bare with me. I personally know the guy that was killed. His name is Warren Back. He is the father of my grandson. I have been trying to find out info ever since I got news he was in the hospital. I have written to newspapers etc.. The prison has told his Father different stories. We have heard so many different stories about this. The first being that a "gang" jumped him & gutted his abdomen & smashed in his Private area. The other was that he was in a fight with someone & a guard shot him. I heard that the guards are NOT allowed to use violence like that & there are other ways to stop someone. PLEASE if ANYONE can find out any info about "Warren" the "Real Truth" regardless what it is I would appreiate it. Thanks!!
