From the Ida B. Wells Coalition:
9/5/2014: This morning there was a full scale take over at Holman prison
by riot cops. Everyone is on lockdown now after 3 cops were beaten, a cell
block got lit on fire, and 1 cop was taken hostage. Holman prison is
dangerously overcrowded and lacking proper air conditioning. These
conditions are illegal, inhumane, and they unnecessarily agitate people in
prison. This is happening now. Follow it now on Twitter, and stay tuned for updates.
Demand that the State of Alabama eliminate overcrowding now!
