    Two dead in Granite prison fight

    GRANITE Two inmates were killed and up to 13 others injured today in a large fight at the Oklahoma State Reformatory, authorities said.

    Kevin Rowland, chief investigator for the state medical examiner's office, said his investigator at the scene reported two deaths inside the prison. State Corrections Department spokesman Jerry Massie also confirmed two deaths.

    The bodies remained inside the prison as of 3:30 p.m., three hours after the fight broke out.

    Rowland said his understanding was that 13 inmates were injured, all with stab wounds. Two of those were at the Hobart hospital with what he described as non-life-threatening chest wounds.

    Massie said eight inmates were taken to three local hospitals, and four more were being treated at the prison.

    The Oklahoma Highway Patrol, which provided security at the hospitals, reported 15 injured. No prison personnel were injured.

    Massie said the stabbings began in a small recreation yard outside one of the prison's medium-security housing units. Inmates from a separate housing unit saw the fight, and a second fight broke out in that unit's recreation yard, he said.

    Massie said he had not been told of what prompted either fight. It was unclear whether the incident was gang-related.

    Prison officials had the prison locked down within five minutes, Massie said.

    "It was over with fairly quickly," he said.

    Massie categorized the incident as a disturbance and not a riot, because inmates didn't destroy property. There were no assaults on staff, nor any attempt to take over the prison, he said.

    I believe this incident and USP Florence, CO are just the tip of the Ice berg. It's gonna be a LONG HOT SUMMER for all correctional facilities fellas. Over crowding and understaffing is a nationwide epidemic. The best we can do is keep our backs up against the wall, and pray we all make it through. Stay safe everyone, and never forget where you work.

    I agree. Missouri is already picking it up and they either usually do it around superbowl or in the heat of the summer. Oh well, I guess I should just be prepared to write!
    Never argue with idiots. They will take you to their level and beat you with experience.

    (necessary to remind myself as I am encountering more of them lately)
