NOTE: This is so sad, right before the Christmas holiday when incarcerated individuals connect with their families. What is interesting to me is that the facility quelled the riot in 10 minutes…How come Saguaro waited 15-20 minutes (according to the reports we’ve heard) before trying to quell the fight on July 26th?
