Chino Prison Riot

W e live not far away from Chino, CA but I was unaware about the Chino Prison riot that erupted this weekend after a Hispanic and African American detainees were involved in a strife and began a fight while others followed suit that prompted other prisoners to get embroiled thus clashing along racial lines.

It was reported that over 50 inmates were injured during the Saturday riot that occurred at the California Institute for Men, Chino Los Angeles. The commotion actually lasted for four hours as guards struggled to suppress the fighting that began around 9:24 am Saturday.

The medium-security facility are not segregated or divided into racial or ethnic groups therefore racial violence has plague the California jail system for long time when various gangs wage war for power.
