tv   Lockup Holman  MSNBC  August 10, 2014 9:00pm-10:01pm PDT

9:00 pm
due to mature subject matter, viewer discretion is advised. america's prisons, dangerous, often deadly. there are 2 million people doing time. every day is a battle to survive and to maintain order. >> down on your feet! down! >> located in the deep south, holman correctional facility, where most are serving life sentences. we spent months documenting life on the inside, where the prisoners have nothing but time and nothing to lose. this is "lockup: holman
9:01 pm
extended stay." >> the holman correctional facility is a maximum security prison, where the officers are outnumbered ten to one. in an environment that sometimes breeds violence, inmates are constantly making weapons for protection. >> well, i've had knives, i keep knives. i've always heard it's better to be caught with one than without one in prison. >> and the officers must do whatever they can to curb future attacks. >> you don't need to see nothing, so keep your head down. >> not gonna tell you no more. >> this is a security level five facility in alabama. it goes from security level one to security level six. >> last year, we had what we
9:02 pm
consider like four major incidents happen. and that would have been a stabbing type of a situation, where it was very serious, life-threatening. and over the last four or five years, we've averaged 3 1/2 to 4 those types of events each year. for this type of facility, that's very good. >> and in this type of facility, many of the inmates are armed to the teeth. >> they seem to always think that everyone needs a weapon. they will take the smallest pieces of metal and make a real good weapon off of it. it doesn't have to be real big. even the smallest item is very dangerous. this is a very small piece of wire from a chain-linked fence. this is our most popular used weapon. it's called a prison-made box cutter. it's simply a razor blade that's glued in between two pieces of wood, very sharp, very easy to conceal, and it's the weapon of choice amongst the inmates at this institution. these right here, someone looked
9:03 pm
like they was trying to make just a plain set of nunchakus. they find anywhere and everywhere to hide them. you may pass an inmate walking up and down the hallway that has a weapon on him. the only way you will know is to pat him down. the need to constantly search more than 1,000 inmates is complicated by holman's critical shortage of staff. >> 801 to b-1 or b-2. take these guys in the store. put them on this side on your line over here, let one person stand on this line, one person come back. i want two people to come back, then two people can go. that will help you control the store. he was trying to do too much. i was trying to give him some help so we get it straightened back out. get back in the line-up room. what line is the pill call line? this is the pill call line right here? >> chow line. >> come on, come on, come on. i.d., where your i.d. at? >> right here. right here. >> supervisor -- whatever the
9:04 pm
supervisor was doing, he needed to be right back here. but it's the staff, again, it goes back to the same thing. really don't have enough staff to try to do the things that you are trying to do. >> not enough staff and too many weapons can only lead to one thing. hours after our crew wrapped shooting, an inmate was stabbed in the honor dorm. the following morning, it was the main topic of conversation among the inmates. >> a man right there got stabbed two beds over, right. you know, i hear the dude scream. i wake up. i look. i see it taking place. the dude had his arm up, another man swinging a knife. >> i was awakened abruptly by tim saying, "the [ bleep ] stabbed me, he stabbed me." naturally i jumped up because it's right in my cut. i get up, tim's putting his t-shirt around his arm and he's bleeding profusely. [ bleep ] standing there, like
9:05 pm
in a zone, like in a very dangerous place in his mind. and he starts to come back. he's got a knife in his hand. blade's about 14 inches long. so, i immediately grab my towel off my bed, and i approached him. i said "[ bleep ] back up, man, go ahead on. back up, man." as he was doing so, he ran into lopez. >> instead of letting him keep that knife in the condition he was in, i felt i should take it from him. there was no officer in there. he was out doing something else. i felt like i didn't want to see nobody else get hurt with that knife because it was a pretty nice knife. i never seen a knife that nice. >> i never saw this wound, but when he raised his arm, blood was running like water. so i made a tourniquet out of his t-shirt, told him, hey, man, we've got to get out of here and get you some help. come on, let's go. as we were going up toward the front of the dorm, the officer came in, and like, "what happened, what happened?" there should have been two
9:06 pm
people on duty, but we were short of staff. we're covering that up by using overtime. one of my biggest headaches at night is how much longer we'll be able to sustain guys working as much overtime as they're working. >> the next day, i asked a couple of these guys in here about it. said, man, i was dreaming somebody got stabbed, man. they told me, no, it really happened. i'm thinking it was a dream, because it was the honor dorm, right? but like i told these guys, hey, man, you're still in prison, no matter where you go, right? >> it's just difficult to try to keep going at the rate we're going with the amount of staff that we have. coming up next on "lockup: extended stay" the honor dorm stabbing victim states his case.
9:07 pm
>> you were asleep. >> i was asleep. that's what woke me up, the knife. >> stabbed you three times? >> four holes in my side. >> four? and later, the warden decides enough is enough. >> all right, everybody on your rack. on your rack. let's go. kelley blue book...

warden culliver, angered by the honor dorm stabbing, has initiated a full-scale criminal investigation into the incident. >> mr. numbly, investigator for the southern region of the state, he's coming over to interview the witnesses, the victim, the accused. i'm going to go up now and meet him and try to brief him on what i've picked up through my investigation. >> what you got here?
9:11 pm
>> the incident happened at 2:00 a.m., june 4th, which was monday morning, 2:00 a.m. out in our honor dorm, which is housing unit "e." the victim in the incident is timothy mcneill. we don't have any staff witnesses, but we got some inmates that were in the near area right after it happened. one of the inmates took the knife away or got the -- talked the knife away from [ muted ]. he stabbed him three times. he stabbed him once in his arm and then twice in his side. the guy was asleep when he stabbed him. >> okay. i got enough to proceed. >> how you doing? have a seat there. how you doing? >> i'm doing all right. >> yeah? i'm here to investigate the incident that occurred where you
9:12 pm
were the victim. okay? i'm here to get your side of the story. >> at about 2:15, i reckon it was, in the morning, just standing over me with a knife. and he hits me in the shoulder and the side of my chest with the knife. and i stood up and hollered for help. that was it. >> you were asleep when he stabbed you? >> i was asleep. that's what woke me up, the knife. >> he stabbed you three times? >> i got four holes in my side. >> four? he stabbed you four times? >> i got four holes in my side, yes, sir. >> did you have any prior problem with [ bleep ] prior to this incident? >> never had no problems with [ bleep ] whatsoever like that. >> i'm trying to figure out why he just out of the blue stabbed you. >> i don't know. 'cause i don't indulge in no -- i don't get high. i don't do nothing. i just sit on my rack, i do what i'm supposed to do. that's it. it's all about going home. >> have you ever seen him with a knife? >> never.
9:13 pm
>> have you seen anybody else with weapons in the dorm? >> any other weapons in there? >> yes. >> that's the first weapon i've seen in there. >> you telling me the whole story? >> i'm telling you the whole story. that's the truth. >> well, i appreciate that, because we do not tolerate this type of activity in the alabama department of corrections. >> right. >> as far as what actions that i'm going to take, it's pretty simple. we know who the bad guy is, we know who stabbed him. but there's a little bit more to the story than what he's admitting. i'm going to interview the suspect and see what he's got to say. how you doing, man? all right. have a seat there. this is an assault case. and you know, with it being an assault case, it can generate a free world case. you understand that, right?
9:14 pm
do you wish to give me a statement as to what happened? >> i want a lawyer present. >> you want a lawyer? you do not choose to give a statement? >> no, sir. >> okay. so this interview is now concluded. >> okay. >> have a good day. >> you, too. >> the next step will be the grand jury, where he'll obviously be indicted. >> yeah, yeah. all right. you going to pick up the weapon today? >> yeah, we'll go ahead -- i'm going to go get it in just a few minutes. >> okay. >> there's nothing unusual at all. i kind of expected that. probably 90% of them will invoke and want a lawyer. that's kind of expected, you know? >> nice knife. >> it is. he was a very lucky man. that can do a lot of damage there. a lot better than most of the ones we see. >> yeah, could have very easily
9:15 pm
killed him with that weapon. >> yeah. >> he asked me, you reckon they're going to try to charge him with anything? i said, i feel pretty sure they will, yeah. >> there's a lot more to that story, though. >> oh, yeah. >> violent attacks like this one are not common in the honor dorm, despite the fact that many of the honor dorm residents are serving time for violent crimes. >> i came to prison for murder, right? however, my brother killed a man, right? >> he was with me. so he's just as guilty as me, in the eyes of the law. >> i was there. i refused to turn state's on my brother, right? so it gave me a murder case, right. >> i was trying to get some
9:16 pm
drugs and i didn't have no money, you know? his girlfriend, it was her daddy. the subject came up about him having some money. so that's the reason i went there. and it just turned into when i broke in his house, he was at home. and -- back in his bedroom. so when i come in, i told him, i'm here to get the money. i had no intentions of hurting him. i didn't have them intentions. but he reached up under a pillow on the other side of the bed, and i thought he must have had a gun under there. that's what led to me killing him. >> how did he die? >> i stabbed him. >> both bookers continue to be violent inside prison, but after numerous injuries and lengthy stays in administrative segregation, they say they've recognized the need for change. >> if this wouldn't have happened that night, it probably would have eventually happened or one of us would have got killed, you know, with our
9:17 pm
lifestyle, the way we were living. robbing people and stuff. and that's really the road to the graveyard or either in here. it's really the only place that leads to. >> our old way of doing things was not working, period. i mean, it's obvious. we're in prison. we come to the realization, right, hey, brother, look around. this was the result of our best thinking. it is time for a change, you know. and during the process, we've been an inspiration for other guys, right, to follow suit, man. >> i made a mistake, man. and a mistake cost me the majority of my life and the majority of his. >> i've been in a lot of trouble. manslaughter, you know, other convictions here in prison, you know. i got four free world cases, right? very violent history here, right? but this one right here was far worse than i was, right. when i saw him change, it was a major shock to me, because i
9:18 pm
never thought i'd see the day that he would -- you know, be able to turn his back and walk off. you know? to lay dope down. >> i live in honor dorm now. about the last four or five years, i've tried to like -- i went and got my ged. >> my brother stayed on me. he was like, look, man, the honor dorm, this is helpful. you got to want to help yourself. that's what that is designed to do, to help you, but only if you help yourself. next on "lockup: extended stay," has wallace booker's violent nature caught up with him? >> this was found underneath that locker box here. >> and later, yet another inmate is caught with a knife, but he's not going down without a fight. >> based on the fact that mr. jackson told me he found it on your bed under your pillow. >> under my pillow? so you believe i'd leave my -- a knife under my pillow?

9:26 pm
before the knife, i found a glass bottle, a dice, gang paraphernalia. cassette tape. >> all right. antonio, you are correct inasmuch as you can't get a criminal charge for this. but, however, this is an administrative hearing. you can be held responsible for that weapon being in your living area. it was in your assigned living area. therefore, i'm going to find you guilty of the charge. take him back there and put him back in his cell, mr. jackson. >> is it -- what facts are you saying -- >> based on the fact that mr. jackson told me he found it on your bed, under your pillow. i don't see no reason for him to lie on you. do you see a reason -- >> no, no, no, no, i don't doubt that. but the reason to doubt is that i wasn't in the cell and that anybody got access to that area. this is laying on top of my bed, under my pillow. >> under your pillow. >> under my pillow? so you believe i leave my -- a knife under my pillow? >> i believe you should have looked before you left.
