State of Emergency
Aside from the California Department of Corrections' political propaganda of guards being attacked often, this is the first homicide that I can remember in my 19 years of incarceration.
Due to the seriousness of the incident, the CDC declared a 24-hour state of emergency pending investigation. It said that some suspects were detained and housed appropriately. The administration is still looking for others. The statewide lockdown is to prevent any possible ripple effects of violence.
The building lockdown is over today, but we now have to wait for the end of the state of emergency lockdown.
My thoughts go out to the family of the deceased prison guard.
