Two Dozen Inmates Injured in Disturbance at Sheriff’s Main Jail

Los Angeles Times, September 24, 2011

About two dozen inmates were injured Friday in a major disturbance inside the Los Angeles County’s Sheriff’s Department’s Men’s Central Jail, according to the department’s operation log.

Inmates from five modules on the second floor of the downtown Los Angeles jail separated along racial lines–blacks versus Latinos–during the melee, according to the department log.

{snip} The chaos was calmed with pepper spray and stun guns.

Seven inmates were rushed to a nearby hospital, according to the department. Twenty-two inmates were treated for minor injuries in the lockup’s clinic and re-housed. {snip}

Racial violence, particularly between blacks and Latinos, has plagued the antiquated facility. {snip}

    It doesn’t matter that this was not a black/white fracas. Whenever two racial groups mix it up, black Americans are convinced that the white man is some sort of nefarious puppet-master orchestrating the whole thing.

    It’s strange that they can hector whites for being the most violent and dangerous race on the face of the earth, and still find time to prey on this “oppressor” where he and his kind work and recreate. Go figure.

    Prisoners chained upside down to a cement wall, tend not to riot.

    Just a little tip from me to the warden of this unit.

    Of course, one need not go to such extremes. Requiring prisoners to wear shackles that hobble them and keep their hands close to their waists is also effective, especially when you require them to wear a taser belt at all times.

    Of course, that would require a state government interested in running a prison as a prison. In california, prisons are nothing more than a form of welfare for the most violent and unstable non-whites imported from other countries. They are being warehoused for the day in the future when they can be given black uniforms and jackboots and let loose to kill whites. That is the mindset of those in government from the left.

    Notice how the remaining whites in california refuse to be taxed above what they are now and the government there responds by letting some of these people out.

    Notice all five of these men are black and doing time in jail for felony convictions. Pardon me, but don’t convicted felons usually go to state prison? Except this is the “broke” state of Illinois we’re talking about here — No money, except to start a “please don’t deport me” hotline for “undocumented immigrants.”

    “Racial violence, particularly between blacks and Latinos, has plagued the antiquated facility.”

    Antiquated? I believe they’re talking about this place, which looks like something out of RoboCop, and was built in 1997:

    I realize the history of LA is comparatively short, but to call a structure only 14 years old “antiquated” is ridiculous even by SoCal standards.

    And the only thing MORE ridiculous is the LaLaLand Times’ slyly blaming this latest bout of black/latino prison violence on an “antiquated facility”, rather than on the violent natures of blacks and latinos.

    Tom Chittum, Civil War II author, says the ongoing black/white low intensity racial war going on in California will increase to the point where the street gangs will be involved and will eventually erupt into all out armed conflict.

    He designates Los Angeles as the point of critical mass that will start the ball rolling for civil war II.

    His oracle-like forecasts occurred as he described in his 1996 book, and it appears as if his forecasts for the coming situation will prove accurate also.

    It’s hard to argue with his track record.

    And I’m sure the evil white man made them fight…

    And Ruth Bader-Ginsberg says it would be racist to segregate inmates by race!

    Hey, is that “Rainbow Coalition” I keep hearing about? You know–the one to which the Republicans keep pandering?

    Just checking.

    “particularly between blacks and Latinos, has plagued the antiquated facility”

    As someone else noted, described as “antiquated”. There it is. THE EXCUSE. These folks are rioting because of a so called “antiquated” facility? NO! Are rioting because they hate one another and will fight for NO reason other than to just fight.

    It was Justice Sandra Day O’Connor that mandated the prisoners be “integrated”. Well, let Sandra Day go to the prison and spend a night there and see what is what.

    As there are proportionately very few Whites in the Californian prison system, the reality of America’s new racial settlement (ie blacks beating on third world immigrants), becomes apparent.

    What you are seeing is a dog-eat-dog struggle at the bottom of America’s racial pyramid.

    Oh, how much easier it would be just to turn them all out on the yard, let them go at it and after it was all over go in and put the survivors back in their cells. A few good riots and they would make the prison workers’ jobs so much easier.

    Proportionally, there are a lot of whites in the CA prison system compared to states east of the Mississippi, where prison are often 60-80% black.

    Do you have the stats to prove your assertion? Proportion to one’s racial percentage of the population? I KNOW for certain in our country jails the inmates are at least 90% NONWHITE.

    Almost none in Quentin, Folsom or Pelican Bay where I have worked. I’m sure there are some statistics on the department of corrections website.

    Did he mean White and black or hispanic and black? Most of the Whites under the age of 60 in Los Angeles are russian, persian, armenian, israeli and arab.

    Even my local senior citizens center is about 80 percent persian 20 percent American White.

    I greatly admire them as they do fight back. There is a group called Armenian power located in N Hollywood, east valley Glendale area. They keep the hispanic thugs out of the area. SPLC hates them. They are on the SPLC hate group watch list.

    Whatever SPLC doesn’t like is all right with me.

    SPLC thinks that the armenians have no right to defend their neighborhoods, women, children, old people and homes against hispanic criminals.

    The Persian business people in my neighborhood have driven off the blacks who used to come north on the freeway and rob, burglarize and rape. Persians have kept the neighborhood safe for 15 years now. Before that it was fairly dangerous. It’s a White neighborhood but the blacks used the freeway to prey on us.

    There are so few American Whites left in California that there will never be a black White war. Even in 1995 American Whites were on the decline as every race in the world swarmed here.

    I have lived in Los Angeles since 1984. I never saw any kind of American White resistance to black crime.
