Department of Corrections officials aren't messing around. First they canceled all visitations at the state's nearly 150 prisons this weekend after receiving what they're calling "credible intelligence" about inmates planning uprisings. Now they've placed them all on lock down through the weekend.
The nearly 100,000 inmates won't be allowed out of their dorms except for mealtime. The possible uprisings are set to coincide with Saturday's scheduled march for prisoners' human rights in Washington, D.C.
