[video] Prisoners Riot In Response to Alleged Officer Abuse

Plies brother with the commentary. I keep thinking he was gonna say it was ‘going down at the Ritz Carlton’. Holman is a well known prison that has been featured for years on MSNBC’s “Locked Up”. No details on the fallout since these skirmishes.

– Allegedly responding to their mistreatment, prisoners in at the Holman Correctional Facility in Atmore, about 50 miles north of Mobile, began to riot early Saturday morning. Early reports indicate that a correctional officer was stabbed 9 times and the warden, at least once Friday night which led to the riots. Their injuries were not life-threatening.

[video] Police Officer Knocks Female Down with Night Stick During Univ. of Arizona Riot

The hit is right around :20 into the video and put the video at full screen to really get a good view.

The description title says she was innocent. Regardless, in situations such as this (riot after a loss in a highly contested college basketball game) police officers could care less about gender and frankly anyone can get it, whether you are guilty or not.

“These girls had been trying to get to their car. The girl is on her phone not paying attention and this cop came out of nowhere and just leveled her,” Landolt told the Daily Star. “After that everyone just started yelling and she started crying.” -Phoebe Landolt.



[video] Huge Fight, Shoot out breaks out between San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders Fans in Candlestick Park

I thought Ray Lewis said that violence would happen if there was no football this season? Seems like it happening more and more these days with the outcomes becoming deadly. Here is a video of some fisticuffs that went down at Candlestick Park this weekend, along with info about a separate shooting incident:

The shooting in the parking lot at Candlestick Park evoked memories of another recent disturbing act of postgame violence involving two rival California pro sports teams – the near-fatal beating in March of a San Francisco Giants fan outside Dodger Stadium.

Scores of police officers wearing helmets and carrying batons and pepper spray entered a New School building at 65 Fifth Avenue around 11 a.m. on Friday, arresting 19 protesters who had occupied it as part of a determined protest aimed at the university’s president, Bob Kerrey. “The Police Department was asked to arrest individuals trespassing on the property,” said Paul J. Browne, the department’s chief spokesman, who said the operation “was done in a very organized, orderly fashion.”

But students at the scene described a tumultuous situation in which protesters were pepper-sprayed before being placed in handcuffs and loaded by police officers into the back of a white van, around 11:30 a.m.

Mr. Browne said it was “untrue that pepper spray or mace was used in effectuating the arrests.” Continue reading

PECOS, Texas (AP) — Inmates at a privately run prison in West Texas took two hostages after starting a riot and setting at least one fire Friday, authorities said.

One of the hostages was released late Friday. Both prison employees are recreation specialists at the Reeves County Detention Center.

The inmates include immigration detainees. They were asking for better medical treatment, Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper John Barton told the Pecos Enterprise Friday night.

Barton said the riot started after noon, when the body of an inmate who died of natural causes was removed from the prison.

More than a thousand prisoners were milling about in the yard and smoke from a fire set during the disturbance still flowed from the recreation building, the newspaper reported.

A hostage negotiator was talking to the inmates, Reeves County Sheriff’s spokesman Michael Estorga told the Odessa American. Continue reading

dead prez Concert Erupts Into Mini-Riot in Washington


Honestly earlier in the week I overlooked this link because I just thought it was re hatched footage of the riot (fracas) that dead prez sparked over in Africa, but when I finally slowed down and read the thread I realized this was something entirely different. In honor of Sean Bell and the countless others who will never have live footage as their testament to the unlawful practices of “law” enforcement we post this YouTube click of police attacking a crowd of protesters in Washington State after a dead prez concert.
