    • ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. New Mexico transferred 109
      inmates to a super-maximum-security prison in Virginia on
      Friday after a guard was stabbed to death in an uprising
      at a privately run prison.
      The new Wallens
      Ridge Correctional Facility, a state prison in Big
      Stone Gap, Va., was chosen because it is designed to
      hold the most dangerous of inmates.
      I think it's
      important to send them a message that if you mess with the
      bull, you're going to get the horns,'' said Rob Perry,
      New Mexico's corrections secretary.
      The inmates
      were transferred from the Guadalupe County
      Correctional Facility, a privately run prison where prisoners
      took over common living areas for three hours Tuesday
      before authorities regained control. A guard was fatally
      stabbed and an inmate was stabbed and wounded.
      prison is operated by Florida-based Wackenhut
      Corrections Corp.
      Perry said the transfer also was a
      warning to Wackenhut to improve its management.
      think it's important to send a message to all of the
      parties involved,'' he said. "The state of New Mexico's
      not going to tolerate prison violence, homicide and
      riots, and this is the response.''
      Calls to
      Wackenhut were not immediately returned.
      Four inmates
      and a guard have died in Wackenhut-run prisons in New
      Mexico in the past nine months. In addition, two guards
      were injured in a disturbance Aug. 17 at a prison run
