Severe prison overcrowding, and general horrid conditions (such as locking human beings in cages for 20 hours a day) produces anti-social behavior, of course. Riots historically have been then only tactic to shed light on these conditions and produce change.

Prison riots in the last week include:

Chino, California

Mexico City, Mexico

Ashwell, England
