URGENT BREAKING NEWS: Michigan State Police are expected to issue a news release at some point – hopefully today – about an incident or incidents involving Upper Peninsula Prisons.
U.P. Breaking News confirmed with MSP that an incident happened at an Upper Peninsula prison but the official would not release the name of the prison – other than to say it involves one of the far ends of the U.P.
Meanwhile this afternoon, a state corrections spokesperson told the Associated Press that “four prisoners marched around in the yard” during a protest this morning at the renamed Kinross Correctional Facility in Kincheloe today. But indicated it was done and all is well.
However, ABC 10 is reporting the protest involved hundreds of inmates at Kinross.
U.P. Breaking News has confirmed there is an incident underway at an Upper Peninsula prison – and we are getting conflicting reports as to the nature – and if there is more than one incident.
We have received numerous tips that the Michigan State Police Emergency Response Team was involved in an incident “that was not at Kincheloe.”
If it is one event – at the renamed Kinross – one possible discrepancy is that the prison now called Kinross had a previous name is located close to – the now-closed original Kinross. If it is more than one event – then the DOC spokesperson was being disingenuous – and lied if it involved hundreds of inmates.
See our editorial – posted this morning before we were informed that an incident or incidents was underway.
Why are some U.P. cops and prosecutors believing questionable witnesses instead of devoting time against murderers?
Why don’t the feds properly fund the federal prosecutors office in Marquette?
We ask – because you are letting white collar crime run amok. The current federal prosecutors in Marquette have a huge caseload – so big – it’s hard to believe how its traditionally ignored by media and officials
Editorial by Greg Peterson
Owner, News Director
At great expense, U.P. Breaking News has been reviewing dozens of federal court lawsuits filed by prison inmates about the horrid conditions in U.P. prisons.
This is a verbal warning shot to all crooked U.P. prison guards and to the formerly good ones who are just burned out and need to retire – a day of reckoning is coming.
At the same time, this is a kudos and big respect for those who do their job properly and earn the name Michigan Corrections Officers. You see, its one of the worst jobs in the world – and we should be thankful they are the last defense between normal people and the purely evil.
We understand that the job must suck and you could be killed at any moment by disgusting prisoners who are just plain evil. But if the allegations are true there are also evil prison guards (not corrections officers – crooks).
**We will begin publishing the names of prison guards accused of egregious abuse – and at the same time – we will expose frivolous or questionable lawsuits – and what some may consider bizarre lawsuits. One of the stories will be about an inmate who served time in U.P. who wants state to pay for his sex change operation.
Judges, rightfully, often dismiss lawsuits that are a total fabrication or petty frivolous. But when a pattern starts – its time for real journalists to take notice.
U.P. Breaking News also believes that the Gretchen Carlson case vs the Fox TV politico boss has one sure fire clue on how to win today.
It’s apparent that courts do not believe things unless they are on video and audio tape – and that’s how Carlson won so quickly. So, there are a lot of ways to record bosses and bullies without them knowing – if they are doing bad things to you.
Remember – getting them on tape appears to be the only way to win.
Also there have been some serious attacks involving prisoners at the Marquette Branch prison including a very violent attack at Marquette about two months or so ago – that have escaped the media’s attention. Why is there this increase in violence at Marquette Branch prison – after years of relatively minor incidents?
That is not who we are talking about – we are targeting prison officers who feel it is OK to abuse prisoners.
Let’s be clear!
U.P. Breaking News is not sympathetic to prisoners who have inflicted bodily harm on others – but even those convictions do not require abuse by those who are power hungry, or greedy guards themselves (crooked guards), and I imagine in some cases just burned out on the job.
We have especially noticed a theme when it comes to the crappy food fed to prisoners – and allegations of physical abuse.
In the U.P. – prosecutors are lucky because we have juries that tend to deliver guilty verdicts therefore the plea bargain is a effective solution.
Wikipedia page does better job than U.P. media reporting issues at Kinross and other U.P. prisons – and the only newspaper with any guts are the Detroit Papers.
The original facility closed in October 2015, with most of the inmates relocating to the formerly closed Hiawatha Correctional Facility. Upon the move, the Kinross Correctional Facility name was transferred to the reopened complex)
See the state did the Big Kinross Double-Cross and Switch moving inmates to an old prison and then renaming it after new prison. Kinda a Cool Hand Luke but this time by prison bosses.
The feds need to raid the Kinross prison because there is a lot of problems going on there – rampant and sick stuff.
Now the Aramark icky food scandal is well-known because even the state had to admit that moldy potatoes and other food were being fed to inmates. Imagine your food not even good enough to pass inspection but those who don’t care.
**This reminds us of the days that mentally ill patients were abused at Newberry – and I even wanted to send an undercover crew into Newberry but my local news bosses were chicken.
In addition – we are investigating two cases – a possible wrongful conviction – and finding out why murderers are not all prosecuted (we don’t want to hear crap about not enuf evidence – at some point you have to roll the dice with the truly evil because what’s the downside. You are already avoiding arrests).
This is a open message to the Marquette County Prosecutor’s office) if your victim just gave birth to a meth addicted baby that will be exposed before the trial (and that’s among the kinder allegations in this case against the alleged victim).
We tend to believe victims but this case is full of holes and even the Michigan’s top judges agree – that’s gonna come out before and after this faulty retrial).
And its being tried again – yet the same office will not prosecute at least three murder suspects involving two locally famous Marquette cases because they would rather go for the net shot – a swish.
Are the cops lying about DNA in one of the (un-arrested not unsolved) murder cases – claiming the technology has not been developed to test it – that’s gotta be a lie or that DNA is so degraded its a joke. I mean PaaaaLeeze!!
I would rather see murders put behind bars – than believe alleged victims who – nobody thinks is credible – nobody.
Here is the problem in the U.P. We only have enough federal prosecutors to go after tribal and drug crimes – there is not mood to investigate white corollary crime or abuse by elected officials or those who are supposed to be held to a hire standard.
Remember once you commit crimes – you are no longer a cop – and so far there are the caught – and now we hope to expose the light of day on the uncaught.
We respect good cops (most are good cops), not those who are crooked or those who just know its time to retire because the job has changed you in a cynical way.
People its time to show we care in our corner of the globe.
