Kansas Prison Cell Block Taken Over by Rioting Inmates

This should be a major news story. It’s not, because the only major news story is still hysteria over this flu hoax.

Imagine the inmates taking over a Leavenworth prison in peacetime. Successful prison riots have always been major events that go down in history.

NBC News:

A group of inmates at a Kansas prison took over a cell block and began destroying property and set off fire extinguishers in a disturbance that stretched from Thursday afternoon to early Friday, a corrections department spokesman said.

All inmates in the “C” cell house at the Lansing Correctional Facility were secured and accounted for by about 1 a.m., Randy Bowman, executive director of public affairs for the Kansas Department of Corrections, said in an email.

No injuries were reported, but details about how the incident ended were not immediately clear. Officials were expected to provide an update Friday.

As many as 50 inmates were involved initially when the disturbance at the facility northwest of Kansas City began about 3 p.m, Bowman said.

By evening, about 20 inmates were out of their cells, Bowman said in a phone interview Thursday evening. He cautioned then that it was a very rough estimate.

The inmates were “just tearing up anything they can get their hands on in the unit,” Bowman said at the time.

The inmates and disturbance were confined to the cell house, and staff monitored the situation via video.

All staff got out of the unit safely and a corrections response team was in place. “If they don’t escalate to fires or violence, we’ll wait them out,” Bowman said Thursday evening.

The cause of the disturbance at the medium-security housing unit was not clear, and an investigation would be done to determine what prompted it, Bowman said.

COVID-19 cases have been diagnosed among inmates and staff at the prison since last week, and on Saturday, the entire facility was placed on restricted movement, he said.

As of Thursday morning, 14 staff had tested positive and were at home, and 12 inmates had tested positive and have been placed in a medical isolation unit, Bowman said.

One inmate who spoke by phone with NBC affiliate KSHB of Kansas City suggested that concerns over coronavirus and masks were at least part of the reason for the unrest, but the inmate also said there was frustration about not being able to shower.

“They’ve broken everything that could be broken, except the bars because you can’t break the bars,” the inmate in the cell house, who was not identified, told the station.

It’s not clear if it is even actually over yet, at time of writing.

Video of the block being rushed was just aired a few minutes ago.

We are currently only three weeks into this new society we created when we decided we were scared enough of the flu to just collapse everything. Whether we continue the lockdown indefinitely or we open the country back up and face the destroyed economy head-on, riots are going to be a defining aspect of this new age.

There will be prison riots, housing riots, food riots, anti-quarantine riots, anti-police riots – every kind of riot you can think of.

My advice to you is to avoid riots. They will not turn out well.

This black military uniform the riot police have taken to wearing is going to become standard for all cops. And it is going to have some kind of Half-Life tier face mask attached to it.
