How can one bearded child inflict so much vibrancy on nine guards?
He must have gone into full berserker mode, this lad.
A total of nine prison officers were injured, including two with serious cranial trauma, after a migrant prisoner violently attacked them, leading to major complaints being lodged by the Autonomous Penitentiary Police Union (SAPPE).
The incident took place at Dozza prison in Bologna, Italy, on Sunday morning, and saw the migrant, whose identity and national origin was not reported, lash out at the guards and go on a rampage that required two of the victims be transported immediately to a local hospital due to the extent of the head trauma they suffered, Il Giornale reports.
The extent and seriousness of the injuries prompted a response from the national secretary of SAPPE, Francesco Campobasso, and the deputy secretary general, Giovanni Battista Durante, who released a joint statement warning “there are increasingly frequent attacks on penitentiary police personnel, caused at times by inmates with mental health problems, but so many times by people who do not accept the rules imposed by law.”
