All Delaware prisons have been placed on lockdown after reports of an emergency situation at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in Smyrna. The state Department of Corrections said the incident involves inmates taking guards hostage.

That is a deeply troubling happenstance.
Is there any word as to the disposition of the hostage takers, any clue as to how many appear to be involved in the hostage situation, in terms of inmates working together? Also, the "nutraloaf"....
Am I to understand that this is essentially some sort of medley of foods, smashed and mashed into a block and baked? Would this be the same sort of stuff which allegedly is only partially digestible, leading to bowel problems including diarrhea, and paradoxically constipation?
Sgt. Steven Floyd, the guard held hostage by a mob of Delaware prison inmates, put his life on the line to save his fellow officers, shouting at them not to rescue him because his captors had set a trap, the head of the state corrections officers' union said Thursday.
Floyd, 47, was found dead early Thursday after police used a backhoe to smash through a barricade of foot lockers filled with water, ending a nearly 20-hour hostage standoff at the all-male, 2,500-prisoner James T. Vaughn Correctional Center. Crews rescued a second hostage, a female counselor, minutes after tactical teams forced their way into the prison's Building C.
