Prison Riot at ‘ Ware State Prison ‘ leaves two guards injured according to local media RT.Com/
The force said there had been injuries but didn’t say how grave they are or what weapons were used.My inbox is getting slammed with information/videos on this incident at Ware State prison: I can’t confirm what’s going on there but plenty of inmates with cell phone video and pictures of injuries and heavy smoke. Doesn’t look very well. Praying for the safety of all involved— Marvin L. James II (@sportsguymarv) August 2, 2020Facebook Live footage, allegedly recorded by prisoners inside the facility, tells quite a violent story. Several extremely graphic videos show inmates covered in blood as they receive assistance from their fellow prisoners.

Wow. Appears that some inmates in #Waycross had tasers, possibly during the Georgia prison riot. #Waycross (Video not confirmed) 🤯🤯👀👀pic.twitter.com/9Djgd9DcpD— Simulation Warlord🇺🇸 (@zerosum24) August 2, 2020In another disturbing video, fires are seen in the prison courtyard as loud bangs are heard in the background.
