Venezuela Prison Riot: More Than 60 Reportedly Killed

Venezuela Prison Riot: More Than 60 Reportedly Killed.

61 were killed in one of the deadliest prison clashes in the nation’s history.  120 were wounded-nearly all from gunshots.  45 of those 120 are still hospitalized.

The reason for the riot began with in inspection of the prison by National Guard troops sent by the government after reports of clashes between groups of inmates over the last 2 days.

The inspection wasn’t coordinated or put into practice as it should’ve been and a disproportionate use of force was used.

Venezuela has 33 prisons built to hold 12,000 inmates, but the prison’s population is currently about 47,000.  YIKES!!
