Rendering Offenders Harmless, Part XX

California max security inmates go beserk... during 75-inmate gang-related riot.

Guards used pepper spray, rubber batons and fired two warning shots to stop the fighting.
Officers said they recovered 28 inmate-made "stabbing and slashing-type weapons." No guards were hurt.
We just cannot prevent some violent offenders from harming others, even in prison.
