Default Pelican Bay riot leaves two injured


It took a pair of warning shots from two Pelican Bay State Prison corrections officers' rifles to quell an apparently race-related brawl that left two inmates with serious injuries Friday. Lt. Ken Thomas, the prison's public information officer, said the cause of Friday's riot is still under investigation, but added the incident likely ties into ongoing racial tensions.

"There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. When there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. And then you cash in on guilt"--Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

Not a good way to start the New Year off, that's for sure. I'm glad no one was seriously injured, including the co's.
