Calif. Sureño Gang Most Powerful In Okla. Prisons
September 20, 2012
Even though they are relatively few in number, the California-based Sureño gang is the most powerful group operating in Oklahoma prisons today, a state Corrections Department intelligence officer told The Oklahoman.
Melissa Townsend, an intelligence officer with the Corrections Department, said the Hispanic gang has a firm grip on the flow of contraband into the state's prisons.
"It doesn't have anything to do with numbers," Townsend said. “Power comes from control of contraband and whoever's in control at that moment. And right now, it's the Hispanics."

Hey, heres an idea: Disrupt the flow of "contraband"! Separate these goons, splice them in with rivel gang members and close your eyes, as sombody obviously has been doing as per the contraband. Yeah, I know, I have no idea how tough that is to do. Right. Shake some houses every few hours, move offenders to solitary, pull TVs', radios and anything else you can find. Prosicute those bringing the stuff in as well as those whose job it is to check incoming visitors and packages. Christ, this is supposed to be a penal facility, not a damn vacation resort. My first option would be to just cap the turds and flush 'em, but that wouldn't be PC now would it?
