    Rikers Island Inmates Tear Into Locked Room to Save Prison Officer from Rape

    Inmates at Rikers Island saved a female corrections officer from being raped by another inmate in a locked Plexiglass-encased watch post at New York's notorious main prison complex over the weekend.

    The incident occurred around 8:15pm Saturday night after the attacker, 27-year-old Raleek Young, managed to lock himself in the bubble-like post with an unnamed female officer, where he began choking her while masturbating, the New York Daily News reported.

    A group of inmates helped corrections officers tear away the Plexiglass to create a gap wide enough for one of the inmates to slip through and unlock the security door. The inmates then grabbed and restrained Young, who is currently serving a 10-year sentence for the rape of a 13-year-old in 2007.

    Correction Department spokeswoman Eve Kessler told the Daily News the matter is currently being investigated.

    A little troubling that it would require the inmates to protect the guards.

    The article doesn't say that the inmate intended to rape the CO. In fact, rape doesn't appear to have been his objective at all, but rather to use her death to achieve his orgasm. That would be murder but not rape.

    Meanwhile, hey had better investigate the contractor who installed that security post, too. They are not supposed to able to be broken into that way; otherwise, what good are they?

      Choking a subject while masturbating is not rape.

      But it makes for a lurid title.

      Funny how they don't mention how often this sort of thing (inmates assisting guards) goes on.

      But then, VICE is really, really lame.
      Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

        Low bid.

        You also have to wonder how a single inmate could hold a guard helpless with one hand....

          Well he is a convicted rapist, and it sounds like this might just have been the first step towards a possible rape.

          But then, VICE is really, really lame.
          Oh? On what metric?

            You're obviously kidding, and obviously never worked behind the walls. I worked around inmates who could have held a rhino helpless with one hand, especially when they were all fired up.

            I personally took care of an inmate who got so carried away pumping iron that he blew out his carotid artery, an incredible feat to accomplish. Imagine someone like that getting one hand around your throat.

            Besides, women in corrections are rarely able to take care of themselves against inmates. I've only known two in my career.

              This article serves as a good example: no context, no background, zip.

              Its high school journalism at best.

                What context or background would make this good journalism?

                  Even in prison, rapists and child molesters are at the bottom of the food chain. Other inmates don't tolerate that sort of thing and will do what's gotta be done.

                    BS, and I can say that from a decade of personal experience. You've obviously never worked in corrections, either.

                    Convicts don't like shorteyes, but they don't mind rapists at all.

                      But movies and television say it's so!

                        Hmmm...I dunno...maybe if it came from FOX News?

                          Well, if it wasn't on VICE, to start.

                          How about explaining why the guard was unable to defend herself?

                          How about some details on the rescue effort, other than 'aided guards'?

                          How about inquiry into the benefits inmates secure from aiding prison staff in their relationships with staff and the impact on parole boards?

                          What were the allegiances of the inmates involved? If the attacker was black and the helpful inmates were AB, for example.

                          How about something with more depth and detail than the average post on this form?

                            And your criticism of VICE News stems from what, exactly?

                            Didn't you read the article? This link is to the original article VICE is quoting from. It actually answers quite a few of your questions. They even have a video report, if video is more your thing.

                            They even have a second, follow-up article too.

                              Because its a verbal sound bite written for cretins.

                              As you noted, other sources covered the story in much better detail, but VICE reduces it to a nimrod Post-it note.
