Default Riot at Eyman

Happened last night, the entire prison is in lockdown and apparently all video visits for today have been cancelled.

I got a call from my friend on Monday night, we were only able to talk for about 3 minutes because of "a disturbance" Does anyone know what happened then? He is in Meadows.



We have a video visit set for tomorrow, I hope that don't cancel it.

According to the reporting, this happened on Wednesday. They locked the entire prison down (which ic common practice) I don't know if the other units have been opened back up, but Cook will remain locked down for the "next several days" and there is supposed to be an update on Monday.

The twitter link I posted is to the reporter who broke the story. He's good, always on top of corrections issues

Is there still a lockdown in Eyman? Aren't they still not allowed to send e-mails via tablet? It freaks me out not to know...

What I've heard is that the Cook unit is still in lockdown, but the rest of the prison isn't anymore.

Also being reported is that inmates are being warned by CO's not not talk to the press about what happened.
