Texas: Striking prisoners threaten violence, facility locked down

From NewsChannel9:

Anthony, TX – La Tuna Federal Prison administrators are in the process of releasing a statement addressing reports that the facility was on lockdown for 6 days due to threats over inmate violence, said a prison spokesperson.

Sources tell NewsChannel 9 that inmates went on a hunger and work strike to protest poor medical conditions last week.

According to staffers who wanted to keep their identities hidden, inmates sent a list of demands to the warden, saying if the demands were not met, they would resort to violence.

Sources tell us that prison administrators have now agreed to meet those demands, but this information has not yet been confirmed by prison leaders.
