WBZ interviewed a since-released prisoner who was on hand for the Shirley prison riot last month. And it’s the basically one-sided horse shit designed to make corrections officers look bad that we’ve ever seen:
For the first time, we are hearing a first-hand account of what sparked that massive prison riot at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Facility in Shirley last month. An inmate, who wants us to call him Anthony, told the story only to WBZ-TV’s Chief Investigative Reporter Cheryl Fiandaca. He says it all started as a small dispute between the corrections officers and the inmates. “It came down to showers. Showers, simple as that,” he said. That dispute quickly escalated to the point where the officers had to leave the facility. For three hours, dozens of inmates went on a rampage and took control of the prison.
Anthony, who was due to be released in a matter of days, stayed in his cell and watched the unrest unfold. “I had a really good vantage point,” he said. “I got a whole view of it; my food slot was open at the time. I sat there on my knees, watching.” The 28-year-old was coming to the end of nine years in prison for armed robberies. He claims it all started earlier in the day when two men from different cell blocks got into a fist fight as they passed each other going in and out of the exercise yard. When the yard time was over, officers decided to lock the men in without allowing them to take showers. “Everyone got riled up and it hits a natural boiling point,” Anthony said.
According to Anthony, that boiling point led to a standoff with inmates refusing to be locked into their cells and widespread rioting, something he says could have been avoided if corrections officers had simply let the men shower. “You are getting a 15 minute shower and everyone would have been peaceful and happy and it would have just been another day in prison,” he said. Anthony says inmates were not fighting each other and didn’t arm themselves for war, calling it civil disobedience. “People were reacting out of passion,” he said.
Yea, this is what “real journalism” looks like. Interviewing the degenerate who just did a nine year stint for armed robbery and giving him a stage to whine about how CO’s were mean to him. The only surprising part about this story is the fact that his winner of a girlfriend stayed with him for nine years and his cat is still alive. I mean, the dude went to prison when he was 19. What kind of chick stays with her 19 year old boyfriend knowing that her only form of pleasure for the next nine years is her jigglestick?
Two prisoners got into a fight. There was obviously some sort of security protocol that CO’s are familiar with that most of us are not when situations like this happen. They followed it, and the poor convicted felons had to spend the night with sweaty grundles. Apparently this was grounds for “civil disobedience” which included destroying state property and making shivs.
Oh, and I’m so, so sorry that guards took away privileges in the days after these animals rioted. I guess they should’ve just gone right back to the way things were and pretend like none of this happened.
And why do these asswipes have TV’s in their rooms? I don’t even have a TV in my bedroom.
Anyway, I like how this guy doesn’t use his real name, but shows his face on a major television network. Like no one out there won’t figure out who you are? Any turtle riders know this winner?
Were you a guard there? Since this guy gets to be anonymous then so do you. Message us and tell us what really happened. Use a burner email or make a burner Facebook page. Send us a message on Facebook or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
