Geo Group Detention Center Riot

It appears that the riot at a for profit detention center that competes with CCA has ended. According to detainees and the news media the riot was in response to poor medical care being provided by the GEO Group at the Reeves County Detention Center. This facility houses ICE detainees just like SDC. News media reports state that during the riot fires were started and two recreational staff were held hostage.

The 270 View will be posting another story or two in the next few days and then we will be back on holiday break until mid January.
