All California prisons on lock-down after guard slain
All California prisons on lock-down after guard slain

Tuesday, January 11, 2005

(01-11) 14:19 PST CHINO, Calif. (AP) --

Prisoners throughout the state were confined to their cells Tuesday as authorities investigated the slaying of a guard by an inmate at the California Institution for Men.

Officials imposed the lock-down at all 32 adult prisons in California as the investigators sought to ensure that the stabbing on Monday was an isolated incident and not part of any wider plot against guards, said Terry Thornton, a spokeswoman for the Department of Corrections.

2. Sounds a bit stupid.
"was an isolated incident and not part of any wider plot against guards"

What are they worried about an inmate intifada or something? Is their
security that hosed? Or is this just a good excuse to reaffirm that the
inmates are cattle so the guards can have the day off?
