The whites out in force along with the blacks and Hispanics. Everyone on a rampage. Three guards were dead within the first hour as long-simmering hatreds boiled over and the men found weapons in their hands. The offices were demolished. The prison industry buildings set on fire. The Ad-Seg and protective custody cells were opened and all the rats and weaklings and celebrity inmates were torn to pieces by roving mobs. Romero made it out into the yard and it was chaos. Utter chaos. Helicopters were in the air and the state police were assembling outside the walls with SWAT units and tear gas and sharpshooters.
He was thinking about Houle. About Jorgensen cracking up. Man up, he told himself. Man up for chrissake. Do your job. But those sounds…Jesus, he didn’t know what he was hearing. A high-pitched screeching that was shrill and strident, piercing his eardrums, making his guts become cold, coiling snakes that twisted and mated, slithering up the back of his throat and filling his mouth. He wanted to turn back the other way, get away from that godawful racket that went right through him, made his molars ache and his marrow go to ice.
Things like cement poured into buckets, wet laundry slapped against the walls, someone pissing on the floor. Then Palmquist began to moan and then…nothing. After that, Comiskey left the light on. 23 The riot began the next morning. The blacks started it. Fed up with the conditions and mistreatment and bullshit promises from lawyers, they seized the moment and took over the yard, disarming about twenty hacks and dousing them with hidden cans of kerosene, holding matches in their hands and calling out to the machine gunners and snipers in the towers to back off or they’d torch them.
