L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)
A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .
They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.
According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.
The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.
He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.
When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.
But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.
Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.
“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
