Sacramento - US prison guards have shot some prisoners while breaking up a fight involving 50 inmates at a California prison, corrections officials say. Inmates stabbed each other during the fight, and some employees suffered minor injuries as they intervened. The outbreak was in a maximum security area of the California State Prison, Sacramento.

I bet this riot involved the two Mexican gangs going at each other. Celebrate diversity. /s
It should read 50 dead scumbags.
It had been called Folsom State Prison for years. The opening scene in the Jonny Cash movie shows the sign for "Repressa" the name for the city where located.
I was chatting with the mayor of Folsom once. He said, that having the prison there relieved them from building low income housing units.
The Folsom school system was wild, with prisoner children.
Sounds like the intervened way too early.....
I am wondering why this is news ????
“”California State Prison, Sacramento
What? It had been called Folsom State Prison for years””
I was wondering the same thing. Lived in Sacramento for a lot of years and never saw a prison there - HA!!!
Not that they couldn’t fill one close to the Capitol building! Made to order for politicians.
When was that? I live in Folsom. If it wasn't already famous you would never know there was a prison here. It's the most upscale suburb in Sacramento county. Prisoners families sure don't live here.
Darn right. Just ‘human’ garbage. Set phazers to kill...
That Folsom closed. This is called New Folsom, not far from Downtown Sac.
Don’t you watch History channel? LOL
Seems to me the guards were too quick to react. Sometimes it's best to let the children work these things out amongst themselves.
It’s a hard luck life....yeah.....
They needed to “WALK THE LINE”.
Its society’s fault...
