Beserk Inmates Destroy Prisons

Chronically violent prison inmates, who officials
were forced to relocate when doors in their Walpole cellblock began mysteriously
opening without cause, lashed out in two other prisons where they were
transferred this week, prison officials said.

Inmates from the notorious 10 Block segregation unit at MCI Cedar Junction
in Walpole ripped beds off cell walls, kicked toilets loose, and broke
observation windows at MCI Norfolk and the Souza-Baranowski Correctional
Center in Shirley this week.

The inmates who went on the rampages were among 162
of the state’s most incorrigible offenders, who were transferred to six
other facilities Monday after three doors at Walpole’s Department Disciplinary
Unit opened spontaneously in what officials have called a malfunction
of the prison’s electronic door-control system.

”The bottom line is that we have moved a lot of inmates who are destructive
anyway," Department of Correction spokeswoman Diane Wiffin said.
”They are in prison because they couldn’t follow the rules of society,
and they are in segregation because they couldn’t follow the rules of
prison. They don’t adapt well to change."

In the incident at Walpole, cell doors and secure
exits were spontaneously and mysteriously opening. Word on the
whisperstream suggests hacking may be involved….
