Florida prisons — all of them — on lockdown

All of Florida’s 97,000 state prison inmates are on lockdown — and will remain confined to their dorms at least through the weekend — in response to unspecified threats about potential rioting, officials from the Florida Department of Corrections confirmed Thursday.

All able-bodied officers, including new recruits, were ordered to report to work starting Thursday. Graduations have been postponed this weekend so that new officers can assist with staffing and help conduct searches for weapons and other contraband, FDC said. Probation officers, too, have been brought in.

Weekend visitations have been canceled at all 50 major institutions, including private prisons, youthful offender facilities, as well as annexes, work camps and re-entry centers. Juvenile facilities have not been affected.

It appears to be the first time in memory that the Florida prison system has been locked down for an indefinite period of time.

    Interesting I live in Florida, we have plenty of prisons filled with plenty of trouble. I know when I was a dialysis nurse in downtown Jacksonville, Florida at Shands, in the middle of badville, most of my patients were blacks, they said the day they decided to riot and burn Jacksonville down they would warn me. Lots of bad cops in Jacksonville. I mean bad and these patients told me the police station and jail first on the burning down list. It wasn’t always like this with the police and some places in Florida like Daytona, never met anything but good cops.

    We are lucky if O still in office and got wind of this he would pardon most of them. 6,000 was a stunning number of drug dealers he let go from federal prisons.
