New York City’s main jail complex, Rikers Island, was established in 1932. A 10-year plan to shut down the prison was released by the mayor in 2017 after the Lippmann Commission proposed its replacement with smaller jails in each of the city’s five boroughs.
New York Post:
Gangbangers brutally beat a correction officer at Rikers Island on Saturday, knocking him out and breaking his neck, according to jail records obtained by The Post.
The officer was attacked by five inmates, all members of the Bloods, according to the records.
One of them walked up to the officer and punched him in the face, knocking him unconscious.
