Texas riot quelled; inmates damage building


www.cnn.com

The disturbance began Saturday at the Reeves County Detention Center near Pecos in west Texas, and hundreds of inmates continued rioting overnight in the second such incident at the facility in less than two months.
April Orsoco with the Reeves County Sheriff's Office said the office was notified by the prison about 4 p.m. Sunday that "they got it under control." Orsoco did not have details on how the situation ended, but she said no injuries were reported as the incident ended.

"The office reported it had no explanation for the rioting.
Three inmates were hospitalized Saturday after fighting began, one with a severed finger, according to the sheriff's office."

LOL Not that this has anything to do with any of the other riots that have happened lately around the world, but still. I could only assume that inmates get bored at times, so why not start shouting and shoving one another around?
