Seven Injured In La Joya Prison Riot - Three Of Them Shot

Crime & PunishmentAbout 7 inmates injured in a riot that started in Pavilion 9 of the La Joya prison yesterday. Early reports indicate three of the prisoners were shot, and 4 were injured with makeshift improvised weapons. The injured inmates were first attended at the hospital in 24 de Diciembre and the Regional Medical Center in Chepo. However, two of the inmates are in delicate condition and taken to the Santo Tomas Hospital in Panama City. The brawl occurred approximately in the afternoon yesterday, Monday. (Critica)

Editor's Comment: Yes, guns in prison. It happens quite often. The prison guards are notoriously corrupt and there are no good plans to combat that corruption. You could probably get a Sherman tank smuggled into a Panamanian prison if you paid enough money.
