HAMILTON TOWNSHIP — Seven inmates are charged with starting a riot at the Monroe County prison.

Investigators say inmates Tyrell Ravenell and Fred Baumgartner got into an argument over the phones at the jail near Snydersville back in May.

Authorities say two other inmates, Patrick Player and Regulus Hoyt–believed to be Ravenell’s friends–confronted Baumgartner in his cell. Then several more inmates started beating and kicking Baumgartner.

Ravenell and Player, along with Johnathyn White, Luis Medina, Dayquan Salaman, and Kevin Strickland face charges of riot, disorderly conduct, and simple assault. Hoyt is charged with simple assault.

    Honestly, this level of hypocrisy is comical. Are we going to sit here and pretend we don’t know about the White man, Eric Decker of E. Stroudsburg, 21 years old, just charged with raping little girls aged 5-12? Or the other White man, Brian Hyson of Plymouth Mtg, 34, just charged with 100 counts of child porn? Or the other White man, Christopher Goldberg if Tobyhanna, more child porn? Do I need to even mention old Mr. Farm down in Philly, who killed those 4 men over marijuana? He burned one on a dam pig roaster. Yesss. Let’s talk about the Black men fighting over the phones in jail. Nice White America! Keep it up!

      12.5% of the entire U.S. population is black.
      34% of all incarcerated individuals in the U.S. are black.
      54% of all black children (under the age of 18) in the U.S. will face criminal charges in juvenile court

      The math is mean, the statistics are ugly, and this incident involved 7 men kicking the sh*t out of one man in a 5’x9′ space. My answer is, and remains, that repeat offenders and pedophiles be dropped off onto a treeless island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Let them duke it out over surviving another day, instead of phone privileges. White, black, purple, clear……….

    When I post statistical facts about prison population v. census population, the comment is awaiting moderation.

    Odd and quirky moderation of thest message boards.

  • The Data is in...

    Seems the viewership is racist.
    Anti black comments get upvoted… anti racist comments get downvoted.
    Your bigotry is showing.

    • blam!

      So what’s your point The data is in? Can you blame the commenters? Just tellin the facts. Don’t like it? Fix YOUR people then.

    • Lloyd Schmucatelli

      It’s not racism when it’s presented as daily fact pretty much everywhere in the country.

      Because it is, actually, FACT.

      You sound like a snowflake and I know your kind doesn’t deal well with reality and truth. That’s ok though, the rest of us will pick up your slack like we usually do.

      So keep on drinking your Starbucks.

    • No....they're not black!

      Why are they racist??? Proof is in the pudding,,,i mean picture!
      Sorry but these animals need to be sent back to the planet they came from!

    • Sticks and stones

      I down voted your comment just to prove your point. So what is it – racist, bigot, xenophobia, homophobe? What would like to know – is there a name other than the ones just mentioned – for someone that states the obvious? Never mind, i figured it out – the name is ‘truth-teller’.

    • that 70's show

      From what I remember of the 70’s, it was actually a half-decent show for its time. And Kizzy was hot!

  • Fatboy

    Thank you HC for calling these guy’s supper predators now they have to really prove it well done HC no votes from them LOL!!!

  • El Ma

    Omigawd, I just took a really good look at the names of these boobs. “REGULUS HOYT?!?!?!” Bwaaaaaaahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! “Regulus,” really? (snort, cackle, snort) If I type anything more, I’ll be labeled as “insensitive” or “racist.” LMAO

    • TypicalLiberal

      You’ll be labeled what you are. These men at just innocent good boys meaning no harm. If you aren’t willing to give them free stuff you’re racist. If you say anything negative about them, you’re racist. Simple to understand, even for your kind.

  • Lloyd Schmucatelli

    I’m not full blooded racist, I know there’s
    good and bad in all races.


    I will say this….

    When I was dating my wife, she used to give me crap over my racist tendencies.

    That was until we had
    our first child.

    We passed a pack of Amish in a store and I asked her if she’d leave our newborn son with them unsupervised.

    She said, “OH HELL NO!”

    I said, “See!”

    It mainly goes without saying and it’ll never go away either. No matter how much equality they try to force feed us.

    • TypicalLiberal

      If you think they are anything but innocent good boys just trying to get by being persecuted by the system, then you’re a full blooded racist.

  • seen it all

    I am being censored for pointing out this is racial and gang and could go into hate crime? How low do black thugs go to attack a lone white man ? ( note the article hides it? )
    Why aren’t these losers in state prison? Lets help them with their career choice as PA prisoners.

  • Lloyd Schmucatelli

    You get that many Amish together in one place and 1 of 2 things will happen. You’ll have major crime or a new rap album.

  • Be Nice

    But, but, they were turning their lives around!
    Wow, they can’t even behave in prison. Unfortunately, the evolutionary process has ended for certain folks. Many are just uncivilized.

  • mickmars

    If the dude named Regulus is incontinant, does that make him Irregulus? Inquiring minds want to know…..

  • El Ma

    Here’s the answer. LET them beat each other to death. That’s exactly what they’ll be doing when they’re released, right? Either that, or they’ll go buy an illegal handgun and work their way right back into “The System” within weeks.

    If there really were such a thing as rehabilitation, that would be one thing. We know that prisons simply contain criminals – there’s no rehabilitation, whatsoever. Impossible to do with psychopaths.

    Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesh (face palm)

    • Drake

      I got my eyes on you
      You’re everything that I see
      I want your hot love and emotion endlessly
      I can’t get over you
      You left your mark on me
      I want your hot love and emotion endlessly

  • stay out of the cities

    I’ve used DayQuan when suffering from a cold but when I still want to stay alert. I would recommend NyQuan for when you’re ready to sleep.

    • El Ma

      That is absolutely hilarious. I have no doubt that DayQuan (snort, cackle, snort) is a close friend of Nzinga – the gal that left her kids in the car so she could go into a strip joint and get drunk.

      People of color? I will say this to you all: if you are tired of stereotypes, prejudice, and violence, start making changes within your own culture and communities. Stop encouraging the “Thug Life” and START encouraging common sense, education, and positive goals. “Positive goals” does not include the idea that a family member is going to make it big in the NFL – business degree or physics degree, FIRST. Sports, somewhere down the line.
