I wonder what provoked these guys to chop this officer up. Rikers Island officers are no angels and have been cited as committing illegal assaults of inmates so this is not surprising at all.

A city correction officer was brutally slashed by one inmate while another held him down on a cell floor Thursday night, according to multiple sources.
Officer Raymond Calderon was taken to New York Hospital Queens after the attack at the George Motchan Detention Center on Rikers Island, jail insiders said.
This knock-out game stuff is hard to pin down due to the fact the media in a bunch of cases used it for splashy headlines but had no data to prove this was real phenomenon spreading across the country. Well this recent incident may sway people to believing this is indeed a real danger if more incidents continue to happen.
“Came right out of the bathroom and punched me in my eye,” she said.
Her eye socket was fractured and may need surgery. She has a black eye and her vision remains blurry. She said it came out of nowhere.
All the attention around the knockout game is giving those on lockdown a new way to prove just how bad they are, said correction officers union V.P. Liz Castro.
The injured C.O. told me she is depressed and scared by what happened, but is determined to wear her uniform again after she heals.

Looks like the “the Precious of Corrections,” is gonna be looking for another job.
A correction officer has been disciplined for dozing on the job after a colleague snapped a picture of her asleep while on post at a Rikers Island infirmary, officials said yesterday.
A clearly conked-out Nadja Green is leaning in a chair with her head back, arms folded, eyes closed and mouth open.
But even more alarming is an amused inmate seen hovering above her, mere inches from a set of keys that hangs from her belt.
The picture was circulated around the department, and a source e-mailed it to The Post.

What did you think they were gonna do? Welcome him with open arms?
He deserves no special treatment for trying to be a wannabe thug in a club with a gun. Next time hire security and concentrate on being a superstar wide receiver.
Plaxico Burress got a zero’s welcome behind bars at Rikers Island, including taunts of “a – – hole!” and “The Giants suck!” according to jail guards.
“He was depressed,” said one guard from Rikers, where the former Giants superstar spent his first-ever night behind bars. “He was trying to keep to himself, but everyone was yelling at him.”
“These people got nothing,” a second guard explained of the taunts. “What else are they gonna do?”
Burress began serving a two-year sentence yesterday for accidentally shooting himself in the thigh with his own Glock while drinking in the crowded VIP vestibule of the Latin Quarter nightclub in Midtown last November.

Officers Michael McKie, Khalid Nelson and Denise Albright called their fight club “The Program,” and the teens they recruited as enforcers were “The Team,” officials said.
Team members were allowed to extort commissary money, clothing and phone privileges from other city jail inmates.
Those who didn’t cooperate were beaten – and McKie and Nelson set the time, place and punishment, prosecutors said.
“They didn’t turn a blind eye to violence. They authorized and directed it,” Assistant District Attorney James Goward said at the trio’s arraignment.
“They turned jail into what might be called almost a nightmare environment where inmates were subjected to beatings, where inmates were recruited to commit beatings.”
In one case, Nelson had one group of prisoners show another the right way to deliver a beating so the injuries wouldn’t be so noticeable, prosecutors said.
Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson said the motive was laziness: “It made their job easier.”
The abuse at Rikers’ Robert N. Devoren Center came to light after the Oct. 18 death of inmate Christopher Robinson – who refused to take part in “The Program.”
A hotline tip led to a probe into “predatory behavior,” said Department of Investigation Commissioner Rose Gill Hearn said.
The officers aren’t accused of ordering Robinson’s beating. Instead, McKie and Nelson are charged with enterprise corruption. Albright, a lesser player, is charged with conspiracy and assault. All three pleaded not guilty in Bronx Supreme Court. Continue reading

They’re much in love,” Fisher said. “They’re very committed to each other, and they had intended to marry one way or another.”
About 200 weddings are performed each year at Rikers Island, which offers chaplains and chapels, said city Department of Correction spokesman Stephen Morello. Only two guests will be permitted, and the couple won’t be allowed to wear rings with protruding gems.
Remy Ma was nominated for a Grammy as part of the Terror Squad for the 2004 hit “Lean Back.” She also has recorded with rap stars Busta Rhymes and Eminem.
Papoose’s “Born To Win” was featured on the top-selling football video game “Madden NFL 06,” and the music magazine Rolling Stone named him one of its “10 Artists to Watch” in 2006.
The Brooklyn rapper, whose real name is Shamele Mackie, also attracted attention with a track called “50 Shots,” in which he vented his anger about a fatal 2006 New York City police shooting of an unarmed man who was hours away from getting married.
