Oahu Community Correctional Center, Honolulu, Hawaii
September 30, 2017

A group of approximately 18 prisoners attacked three guards as they were being moved from their housing unit to the medical unit. The attack may have occurred in retaliation for a lockdown of the prison.

An anonymous sergeant at Oahu Correctional told Hawaii News Now:

“There were comments made like ‘you keep locking us down see what happens, you keep (expletive) doing this to us see what happens. There were few that were involved in the ruckus the other few were sort of watching and blocking the view of the camera. They knew what they were doing, it seemed planned.”
