Prisoners lead a brief uprising in protest of a new policy that integrates yard time for prisoners in segregation and those in general population. Prisoners set fire to a mattress as well as start a fire in a bathroom. The uprising is quickly subdued by prison staff.
Two days later, family members of prisoners at Norco hold a rally outside the prison protesting the new policy.
The Department of Corrections releases a statement explaining the intentions of the new policy.
