SACRAMENTO — Contraband cell phones are becoming so prevalent in California prisons that guards can’t keep them out of the hands of the most notorious and violent inmates: Even Charles Manson, orchestrator of one of the most notorious killing rampages in U.S. history, was caught with an LG flip phone under his prison mattress.

Manson made calls and sent text messages to people in California, New Jersey, Florida and British Columbia before officers discovered the phone, said Terry Thornton, a spokeswoman for the California Department of Corrections.

Asked whether Manson had used the device to direct anyone to commit a crime or to leave a threatening message, Thornton said, “I don’t know, but it’s troubling that he had a cell phone since he’s a person who got other people to murder on his behalf.”

Although officials say inmates use smuggled cellphones for all manner of criminal activity, including running drug rings from behind bars, intimidating witnesses and planning escapes, it is not a crime to possess one in a California prison.

    “Spring is here and so are the crazies”, according to local Police and FBI and that Seattle Police say officers reported being struck by sticks and batons by some anti-capitalist demonstrators at a May Day protest Sunday in Seattle and that according to reporters “mayhem is expected to rise with the thermometer” and that out of towners are expected to wage war on the locals with plenty of looting and rioting and shoplifters stabbing security guards with screwdrivers as they get away with the loot, according to recent reports.

    Anyway, dozens of black-clad people gathered at Westlake Park in downtown following a peaceful, permitted march earlier in the day by advocates for workers and immigrants and after while, things took a turn and that the anti-capitalist demonstrators, who did not have a permit from city officials, carried signs, including one that said “We Are Ungovernable And We Are Anarchists” and another saying “Hope Law Enforcement Have A Long Hot Spring And Summer” and the groups gathered at the downtown park before starting to march through the streets looking to start stuff and make a scene.

    Some downtown businesses had earlier boarded up storefronts, anticipating violence and a shoplifter stabbed a store manager with a knife after stealing some items from a local department store and that Seattle Police reported seeing people with poles with bolts, rocks and cans of spray paint in the crowd and as they tried to arrest some of them, two of them has their tasers removed from their wastes and the tasers were used on them along with their property taken out of their pockets. Also, Police said there was some property damage, including broken window at a residential building during a course of an elderly woman being stabbed and money taken out of her pocketbook along with several cars being shot up and set on fire and guns and packs of matches have been stolen from places to use in violence, according to Police and FBI reports.
