20 inmates involved in fight at Montana State Prison

The fight occurred at around 8 p.m. Saturday, March 31 near the high security gym. Prison staff responded immediately and the institution was secured, according to public information officer Linda Moodry.
Five inmates received medical attention for superficial injuries. Moodry says inmates cooperated with staff and no staff members were injured.
“It was not a riot situation and lasted about four minutes. This incident is under investigation,” Moodry said.
They don’t call this a “riot” but they sure are keeping it low key. Twenty inmates is not a riot, it’s when the prison population has an uprising. The way these prisons are being managed in Montana the inmates have become hopeless of ever getting out or ever having freedom again due to corrupt parole board actions. Inmates that are angry at being taken by cattle rustlers and branded with a DOC brand. You cannot expect that this won’t breed discontent. What do they have to lose by showing how frustrated they are? They figure they are not going to let them out anyway. What would be worse if all of these prisons decided to have an uprising all at the same time. Trust me, the water is boiling, I’ve been around DOC too long…you can see the handwriting on the wall. We need to have change, humans are not cattle. You don’t rustle humans and brand them. It is morally and legally wrong.
