Prisoners should be working in chain gangs, wearing stripped suits. Working in the fields in fresh air is healthy.
Old Sparky should be plugged in again to take care of prison rioters.
Delaware is Joe Biden’s home state. As a good liberal, he should be able to negotiate the prisoner’s demands and bring a quick end to a dangerous situation. Set up a lottery. Winner gets to share a luxury cell with Hillary Clinton.
Excerpt from Delaware Online
An unknown number of prisoners inside James T. Vaughn Correctional Center took control of a building Wednesday morning, injuring one corrections officer, and taking four others and fellow prisoners hostage.
By Wednesday night, the standoff, in its 9th hour, continued will little progress toward a resolution reported aside from the injured officer being released.
Around 2 p.m., The News Journal tipline received a call from a woman who said her fiancé is an inmate at the Smyrna prison and is being held hostage. Then, a man’s voice was patched onto the line and he said he was asked by hostage takers to relay demands to The News Journal.
“I’m just doing what I’m being told to. I’m just trying to help, ma’am,” the man told a News Journal reporter. “They just need somebody to hear their demands.” The man would not give his name because he said he was instructed not to.
The demands came in the form of a manifesto or decree and mostly called for prison reforms.
“Improper sentencing orders. Status sheets being wrong. Oppression towards the inmates,” the voice continued.
Prisoners funneled a second call to The News Journal through a woman who said her son was in Vaughn Correctional and was being held hostage.
“We’re trying to explain the reasons for doing what we’re doing,” one of the voices on the call said. “Donald Trump. Everything that he did. All the things that he’s doing now. We know that the institution is going to change for the worse. We know the institution is going to change for the worse. We got demands that you need to pay attention to, that you need to listen to and you need to let them know. Education, we want education first and foremost. We want a rehabilitation program that works for everybody. We want the money to be allocated so we can know exactly what is going on in the prison, the budget.”
They want an education? Oh yeah, I’m sure there are many future rocket scientists in Delaware’s prison system. Educate them now or we won’t be able to send a rocket ship to Mars.
If Biden can’t bring the standoff to a halt, send in the Trumpinator.
