    16 Correction Officers Injured In Rikers Melee
    November 24, 2010 7:44 AM

    More than a dozen New York City correction officers were injured while quelling fights between inmates awaiting pretrial hearings at a Rikers Island jail.

    New York City Correction Department spokesman Steven Morello said two separate fights involving six inmates broke out at the Otis Bantum Correction Center at about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.

    He said responding officers were assaulted by the quarreling inmates before everything was quickly brought under control, leaving 13 correction officers and 3 captains injured.

    No link is needed. None of them should have been injured. The only reason they were is that they were either poorly trained or stupid. The fact that 3 of them were captains tells me they didn't know what they were doing.

    Faced with a similar situation, it is extremely doubtful any Texas Corrections Officer would have been injured at all. Training would be the difference.
