September 26-30, 2016: Amid frequent shakedowns, transfers and other retaliation for participating in the nation-wide strike, a prisoner named Michael Lorenzo Jones is killed in a fight between prisoners at McCormick CI. The Department of Corrections responds with a statewide lockdown and media blackout. The next day, and three hours away, prisoners refuse orders, jump on a guard and chase staff out of the unit. They maintain control of the unit for less than 12 hours. Over the next four days prisoners on Twitter (@prisonslavery1) report at least 5 more guards in different facilities being attacked and often hospitalized, including 4 stabbed at Lanesboro on the 30th.
