Prison Riot Sends 2 Dozen To Hospital

(AP) CHINO, Calif. A riot at the state prison in Chino today involved more than 800 inmates and sent at least two dozen to hospitals with moderate to serious injuries.

California Institution for Men spokesman Mark Hargrove said fight between two inmates quickly spread through the prison.

Guards aided by sheriff's deputies and area police quelled the fighting in about two hours. No officers were injured.

At least 24 inmates were taken to nearby hospitals for treatment, including one inmate who had severe head injuries and puncture wounds to his back.

Hargrove says the fighting may have been racially motivated.

Did the whites jump in to help the mexicans? I wonder why they would want to get involved in that if they could have just sat back and watched them take eachother out.

Inland prison remains on lockdown

Inland prison remains on lockdown

RIOT: Saturday's 90-minute melee injured 51 inmates. Investigators have yet to determine the cause.

12:17 AM PST on Wednesday, January 3, 2007

By PAIGE AUSTIN
The Press-Enterprise

Three inmates remain hospitalized following one of the largest riots at the California Institution for Men, which remained in lockdown mode on Tuesday as investigators try to determine what prompted the melee.

The Saturday morning riot, which left 51 inmates injured, capped a second year marked by racial tension in the Chino prison and other prisons and jails statewide. Though inmates lined up by race during Saturday's fighting, officials have not determined whether the riot was racially motivated. It's not unusual for factors such as crowding, gangs and racial tensions to contribute to prison violence, said Lt. Mark Hargrove, prison spokesman.

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation plans to confront each of these issues with major policy changes this year as it responds to class-action lawsuits and proposals to ease crowding.

"All these things are larger than CIM," said Bill Sessa, a Department of Corrections spokesman. "It's rare that (riots) escalate to this level and magnitude. But prisons are environments that have a lot of tension in them, and overcrowding makes these tensions worse."

Built to house 1,000 to 3,000 inmates, the Chino prison is now home to 6,609 men -- mostly parole violators or inmates waiting to be transferred to other prisons.

Last month, Gov. Schwarzenegger introduced a proposal for parole changes and a $10.9 billion package to relieve crowding by adding nearly 78,000 beds to prisons and county jails.

As Southern California's major prison reception center, the Chino facility is a temporary stop for most local felons, and it has a reputation as a hub for California prison gangs.

The FBI and the Department of Justice recently have attempted to break up prison gangs' stranglehold with investigations into activities of the Mexican Mafia and Aryan Brotherhood.

However, prison officials don't know whether Saturday's riot was planned by the prison gangs, said Hargrove.

The fighting started between two inmates, one black and one Hispanic, and when the riot was over, there were only five makeshift weapons found. These facts would hint that the violence was spontaneous, Hargrove said.

The injuries were concentrated among black inmates -- the prison's minority population. Of the 27 inmates who were hospitalized, all but three are black. One of the three is Hispanic, and two are white. Such numbers would usually indicate an organized attack by one race-based gang against another, he said.

In December, the prison dealt with a smaller riot involving 60 black and Hispanic inmates. The prison had two riots in June divided along similar racial lines and a 200-inmate riot between blacks and Hispanics in 2005.

Since the violence, prison officials have transferred 130 rioters to other prisons and are in the process of moving nearly 100 more to segregated cells, where they will stay for 23 hours a day.

One inmate awaits surgery for a head injury, and two others suffering spinal-chord injuries are likely to be released from the hospital shortly, Hargrove said.

Windows and doors were broken, and offices were ransacked, he added. About 200 officers from prisons in neighboring counties and dozens of local police officers were called in to quell the violence, which lasted for 90 minutes.

Activities such as classes and yard time at portions of the prison will remain halted this week as officers investigate the cause of the Saturday melee, which spread to four dorms housing roughly 1,000 inmates, Hargrove said. Prison officials closed its doors to new inmates this week until the investigation is finished, he added.

Many of the inmates' friends and relatives have spent a frantic few days without word of their loved ones after the riot. Prison officials hope to set up a phone line specifically to answer their questions, Hargrove said.

"You get that icky feeling in your stomach that something is wrong, but there is nothing you can do about it," said Alice Jones, a Riverside County resident whose son is incarcerated at the prison for a parole violation. "I know a lot of parents must be going through the same thing."

From a friend

That is exactly why this happened, my husband told me a few days before this broke out that they cut mini yard for excercie, in mini yard everyone is let out by race so that there will be no altercations, he said the minute they cut mini yard and said everyone would be out in the main yard together he knew it wouldn't be long before a fight broke out
