Hubby is in Holman and managed to call me. It was one dorm that rioted. One staff member was stabbed as well as the warden, Mr. Davenport, I was told. Neither's injuries were life-threatening.

They will be in lockdown until an investigation is completed.

I'm worried. Has anyone heard from their loved one today?

Default Trouble at Holman

A riot broke out in C Dorm last nite. It started out as a fight between 2 inmates. A CO was stabbed 9 times after trying to subdue one of the inmates. The warden was also stabbed. Neither has life threatening injuries.

The fight quickly escalated to a riot. Riot teams were brought in to get the situation under control. Holman will be locked down until an investigation is completed.

Default 2nd Riot at Holman in 3 Days

Apparently, there was a smaller riot of 70 inmates. It has since been contained.

Hubs hasn't called me to tell me what's going on. Will update when I get more info. Please pray for everyone involved.

CO died of his injuries. http://wkrg.com/2016/09/16/breaking-...holman-prison/

I also saw this Emergency Alert re conditions at Holman Prison: https://freealabamamovement.wordpres...ess-release-2/ I don't know how accurate the article is, but it does indicate serious problems at the prison.

I hope all of your loved ones are well, in spite of the current situation.

Thank you, Marie. As far as my LO, he's OK - for now anyway. The article is accurate. H is for Holman and H is for HELL. Officers are quitting or spending minimal time in the dorms. They do count and shakedowns and, other than that, they aren't in the dorms. Prisoners are going hungry. There's a national work stoppage and Holman is a part of it. Food is becoming even more scarce. Pray for them, plse.
