In July, an inmate threw boiling water on a correctional officer. As a result, the prison remained under a mobilization later in the day.

Gautz said the protest was held to coincide with the 45th annual anniversary of the Attica Correctional Facility riots in upstate NY. In that incident, more than 2,000 inmates rioted, seized control of the prison and took dozens of staff members hostage.

The inmates taking part in the work stoppage at Holman have not made any demands, Horton said, and overall they have been cooperative in their peaceful protest.

An investigation is underway after another assault on an employee by an inmate at the Green Bay Correctional Institution.

Deputies are continuing to help with securing the institution, and some inmates are being transferred to other facilities.

On the state side, Jackson County hosts the east and west units that make up Apalachee Correctional in Sneads, the Graceville Correctional Facility and the Jackson Correctional Institution in Malone. Sinks were damaged and at least one window smashed, he said. Florida corrections officers nevertheless were briefed and prepared to work all weekend in case there were uprisings, officials said.

The Black Lives Matter movement has also shone a spotlight on human rights violations in prisons, and on America's carceral state as an extension of the racial hierarchies enforced by slavery and Jim Crow. "It was every dorm, as if it was planned", the Holmes officer said.
