Pecos, TX: Riot at I.C.E Detention Center

A riot has broken out at the Reeves County Detention Center.

"We do not have anything in control," said a detention officer from the facility. "Everything is out of control." The detention officer said a medical dispute between inmates and staff might have sparked the riot.

According to officials, several fires have broken out throughout the jail grounds. One prisoner was taken to a nearby hospital by ambulance.

The Reeves County Detention Center is run by the Geo Group and houses federal inmates who are being held on immigration charges.

Wells Fargo Bank funds the GEO Group & people have attacked them in the past for that very reason.

Just sayin'.

I was searching for jobs on MonsterTrak and some other sites. In some categories the only places listed are the Geo Group, the army and the navy. WTF.

I think you should get your story straight before posting it online, if you don't know exactly what happened keep your mouth shut. This is only hurting the employees at the facility and their families, for me inmates are inmates and they should be lucky they have all the things they do at this location!!!
