They'll be taking out guards, too, if this war escalates.
Anyway, Seawright's murder will be added to our CRIPA complaint. If anyone can get more details on what happened with this or any of the other prison homicides since last summer, please pass them on so they can be forwarded to the appropriate outside agency.
Our condolences to Dana's family and loved ones. Please let us know if there's anything we can do, even just publish his obituary for you - I'm sure it will have more to say about the man than his criminal record does, and we like to get that kind of information out there so the public recognizes the humanity of many prisoners.

PHOENIX - Arizona Department of Corrections officials say a state prison inmate has died.
Officials say 26-year-old Dana Seawright died Wednesday night at Maricopa Medical Center in Phoenix. He had been transported to the hospital on Saturday after being found in his cell with puncture wounds.
DOC officials did not say how Seawright was wounded at the Stiner Unit of the state prison Lewis complex in Buckeye, only that the death is under investigation.
They say Seawright was sent to the Arizona prison system for the third time in November 2009 to serve a 12-year sentence. He was convicted out of Maricopa County on a dangerous drug violation and unlawful use of means of transport.
