SUMTER COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35, Orlando) -- FOX 35 is investigating reports of an inmate riot at a federal prison in Sumter County.
Early reports indicate that there are mass casualties involving gun shot wounds at the Coleman Federal Correctional Complex, which is located approximately 50 miles northwest of Orlando and 35 miles south of Ocala.
FOX 35 has a crew headed to the scene for more information and we will bring you more updates as they are confirmed.
Coleman Federal Correctional Complex is located just south of the central Florida town of Coleman, off of Highway 301. The complex consists of four facilities built to accommodate low to high security risk inmates.
Violent felons killing each other? Why’d they stop it?
Dang it, why can’t Obama do something about this????
Why are inmates let out of their cells enough to stage a riot? And why are inmates allowed to be in gangs?
Sounds like the perfect place for the Gitmo guys!
Any Florida Freepers that can add to this unfolding event?
Guess Obama will have to call an emergency meeting with his advisors and sign an executive order to close down this prison ASAP. /sarc
Federal inmates already rioting over whether or not the Gitmo detainees should be moved to their “house”.
“Any Florida Freepers that can add to this unfolding event?”
Only about 30 miles to the north of my place. Lock and load just in case.
From what I am hear on the news sounds like the guards shot 9 of them or so.
Its zero’s fault. I expect to see much more of this in the very near future. My contacts within the Texas prison system tell me the brothers fully expect zero to swing open the doors and let them walk. No more whitey keepin the brothers down.
I’ve worked corrections... things have to had gone completely to hell for shooting to start.
doesn’t sound like anyone’s dead yet but no real details
even in max custody joints/institutions, inmate cells are opened at 6 am and only back in the cells prior to dinner for the 4 pm count and then let out until 10 pm for the night lockdown
He's got to ask Greg Craig for instructions first.
I would take the courtyard space, expand the size of cells and keep everyone in solitary for the duration of their stay in prison. We allow these inmates to organize and even to direct things that take place outside the prison.
If you deserve to go to prison, you don’t deserve rights other than simple clothes, a cot, a toilet, three squares, and a safe environment.
What is forgotten all too often, is that even if a guy has done something wrong, he is deserving of a safe environment inside the prison. That is not the case in any of our prisons today IMO. If I were to go in, I would want my own space and to be left alone to do my time.
We now have openings in the general prison population for some of the Gitmo folks!
Yes sir...good news indeed!
All the liberal comedians say, there is “NOTHING FUNNY ABOUT THAT!!!!”
They might throw in those chlorine gas canisters to quell the rest of them.
Terrorists: Coming to a prison near you!!
Hard not to notice the difference between a black, brown, or white.
This being Florida, the guards could have shot low risk inmates asking if they can have some more groul.
Of the tv documentaries I have clicked upon it is reported that most prison inmates were gang related prior to there incarceration.
They have seemed to use there cleverness/intelligence (Aryan Nation was set as example) to run a money making organization in and out of the walls they live in by running drugs and have even come up with a sophisticated encrypted
language to mail out orders.
Add to the other gangs black/Latino ect and some corrupt prison guards it is a society that thrives on in prison learned ways.
To bad that these criminals did not put those talents to use for the good before committing crimes/losing there rigtht to freedom ect..
Sure could have been a huge saving in taxes we spend and they could be contributors in our society.
Some prison officials primary jobs are to decipher encrypted letters going in/out of the prison and look for drugs ect.
All paid for courtesy of the US citizens via taxes.
Yet we toss aside the severely indigent mentally/physically disabled whom have no family or the elderly into state run facilities that pay Burger King wages and expose those for no cause of there own to live in filth/abuse ect.
I have seen Missionaries in other countries who provide love/care/shelter to severely disabled babies/kids (EWTN Documentaries) then the Govt run ones here in our country.
Many Freepers and Sarah Palin who have disabled kids GET IT on how KEEPING there child and the gifts from the exp. of doing so are something that words cannot describe.
(sorry got way off topic)
I agree with ya DoughtyOne.
Take it up with the aclu
I don’t know why we let prisoners in these places have the amount of access to each other and to the outside world that is permitted them. Of course gangs are going to keep up the bad work in prison, if these people are allowed to use the prison as a simple staging ground where the state provides them room and board, which seems to be the case.
I agree with Doughty One. They should be kept separated as much as possible, not Supermax style if they’re not that type of prisoner (I guess the isolation there can literally drive people crazy), but certainly enough to keep them safe from each other and to prevent them from plotting together and organizing either inside the prison or outside of it.
Good for you.
If you have to defend yourself/family due to an escapee coming onto your property then it would like being killing two birds with one stone.
(btw I am not big on violence but 110% believe in self defense and shrinking taxes)
What type of Prison is this?
Your typical long term storage of criminal or the worst of the worst life long violent criminals?
About 35 years ago my brother got picked up for unpaid parking tickets and thrown in to the Saint Petersberg Florida jail.
About an hour after booking a riot broke out. Inmates lit mattresses on fire and guards set off gas.
David said he took off his socks to breath through and got an inch off the floor and forever paid his parking tickets.
Other than self defense.
Which is totally ok IMO.
Now if they just lined them up on a wall in a firing squad for marksman practice then the prisoners may have a bit to be jumpy about. /sarc
What’s the over/under that Zer0 will use that very phrase within the second week of his run???
He was stabbed 13 times and stomped on for 45 minutes??? Do they have no guards there?
What do they expect Obama will do for them, doors wide open as well?
I could see Obama with his plan to rebuild the infrastructure using prisoners as cheap labor.
Well, after an in depth study presented to the courts of the United States, the ACLU should be closed down for the subversive organization that it is. It nearly exclusively takes on anti-US and anti-decency matters, in an effort to cause the breakdown of the government and society in the United States.
The statistics should bear this out. They can’t burn those places down fast enough for me.
Do a search for UNICOR. The feds are running rebuild and remanufacturing facilities at the prisons. I forget what the pay is, but inmates work in a factory often rebuilding military vehicles. Inside is beyond nasty.
The non-violet inmates live in a camp outside the prison and usually work in the warehouses.
George see post #12.
If Slim (who has been a Freeper in good standing for ever around here IMO) is accurate then your setting up a defense perimeter is a wise plan. (not meaning to alarm you, maybe Slim can give some insight to the chances of any riot getting outside the walls)
I agree with most of your comments. I am not convinced that solitary causes mental problems though. Give them a 5” television screen that provides FoxNews, and a radio that pipes in a news channel, and they’ll be okay. Give them access to a lending library on wheels. If they can’t busy themselves, too bad. Avoid prison in the first place.
“burn those places down fast enough for me”.
Well I’d like its practitioners in the buildings when they are burned down.
Not much lower in the pecking order than an aclu lawyer.
You know Joe, we’re on the same page. These are worse than parasites. They don’t just feed on the U.S., they wish to destroy it. They’re more akin to a virus. We need a good collective shot of penicillin.
Just saw two choppers sort of overhead. I’m about mid-way between the prison and Tampa. One going southbound and the other a few miles to the east going northbound. Maybe airlifting casualties to a Tampa hospital.
That’s my belief too. I’m sick of seeing FReepers cheering for the “rights” of convicts to commit rape, murder and other violent acts.
What is it about Orlando?
There a plane flying at 1300 ft and staying at that altitude for 15 minutes headed toward the prison.
CNN (if you can keep the maalox stocked due to the CNN staff reporting every time Obama toots)
Is reporting that 1 inmate in hosp due to gunshot and 8 others in hosp for other non specific injuries.
Corrections ping! This isn’t too far from your grandparents.
Gitmo inmates are getting out (or are being moved to cushier environs). These guys are probably wondering why not us? What’s taking so long?
2:40 pm a stabbing started the brawl.
Out break started in the HIGH security area of the prison.
Things seem to be simmered down at this time.
Officials reporting no, repeat no threat to the public residents in the area.
Sound like it is under control at this time folks.
On a personal note it takes a certain type (I dont know how else to describe) of Man to be employed in an enviroment where the most violent, mentally disturbed criminals are housed.
It is a mystery to me.
