Riot at Chesapeake Prison Severely Damages One Housing Unit

Officials at St. Brides Correctional Center in Chesapeake say they lost control in a portion of the facility for a time Thursday night.

A Strike Team was eventually sent in to restore order at the facility off Sanderson Road near Route 168.

According to authorities, the incident happened in Unit F, which houses 64 youthful offenders ages 16-24 from around the state.

Officials say the inmates became unruly, and at around 11:40pm the situation had progressed to the point that the unit was not under the control of corrections officials. At that time all corrections personnel withdrew from the unit and the unit was locked down.

The Strike Team entered the facility and re-took control of the unit.

Sixty-two of the 64 inmates were transferred Friday morning to Greensville Correctional Center in Jarrett, where they were placed in segregation. The two who remained at St. Bride's are also in a segregation unit.

During the disturbance there were minor injuries to some of the inmates. There were no injuries to corrections personnel.

There was, however, extensive damage to the housing unit and it is currently uninhabitable.

Officials say will be an investigation to determine if any charges will be filed.

St. Bride's houses at total of 590 inmates.

Why the Japanese internment still matters

For years, it has been my position that the threat of radical Islam implies an imperative to focus security measures on Muslims. If searching for rapists, one looks only at the male population. Similarly, if searching for Islamists (adherents of radical Islam), one looks at the Muslim population.

A 30% Rise in Campaign Costs to Achieve the Same Turnout Rates

60.5% of the eligible electorate -- which was 55.8% of the voting-age population -- voted in 2004; 59.5% of the eligible electorate -- which was 54.7% of the voting-age population -- did so in 2000. In short, it took a whopping 30% rise in campaign costs to achieve practically the same turnout rates as 2000.
