Default Inmates stabbed in Susanville prison riot

70 prisoners involved in Susanville riot

A massive prison riot at the High Desert State Prison in Susanville sent at least four inmates to local hospitals with stab wounds Saturday.

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation says about 75 prisoners, predominantly black and Hispanic, were involved in the clash.

Two inmates were sent to Reno hospitals, two others where sent to hospitals in California.

I saw this in the Reno paper when I was reading the other post. What's realy interesting about this is that there is no mention at all in the Lassen County Newspaper...but there is an artilce (negative) about both the POV show and the inmate that was featured.

The Lassen paper is not a daily paper- today's edition is the first one published since the incident- and their website seems to show the last edition, not the current one- I do know that the Lassen County Times recieved a press release about an incident at HDSP earlier last week, and can only assume that they recieved one about the riot.

I was wondering about that, but one of the articles on their website was dated 7/30, so I wasn't sure. Just seemed strange, but then, I grew up in a small town and the local news was always more important than anything else...after all, you probably knew the people in the local news.

I could be mistaken about the site showing the previous edition- the site could just truly suck to navigate

It could have just posted that editorial/article about the POV show because that was really the "big" news for them. When I checked for past issues mostly what I foud were the Birth records. I can't remember when I've seen them posted in a newspaper, but that really is the signature of a paper that serves a more rural area.

Alerts like this usually come from the families to the media. Seven were hospitalized and the riot was reportedly set up by a Sgt who ordered the blacks and hispanics into the same area, knowing that it would spark a riot. That's our information from medical staff who are in the UNION.

Race riots happen in Prison. No one sets them up other than the inmates.
