This is what I hear. Apparently the cops tried to do a spot search for drugs and the prisoners got pissed. The place is overcrowded and open, so the cops and guards are always outnumbered. Anyways, all hell breaks loose and there’s prisoners on the roof, also throwing rocks on the road. Some journalists get onto a balcony across the street and they hear gunfire.
What I heard was that Army went in and that four soldiers were injured (along with like 20 prisoners). I’m thinking that might be Special Task Force, though. They tear gassed in and out and are reportedly moving people out of the prison. Anyways, that’s what I hear from someone that was there. Let me know.
If you want some effete background on the prison, I wrote about my visit there last year.
