The Trinitarios gang is once again the headache of the NYPD after eight alleged members trashed a room aboard the Bronx jail barge, sending one maritime corrections officer fleeing in fear for her life.
The gangbangers -located at the Vernon C. Bain Center- reportedly went wild on Saturday afternoon after learning a friend would be moved to another facility, according to sources familiar with the incident.
Going into a violent frenzy, the prisoners destroyed the room and attempted to flood the area, turning on water to slow down corrections officers.
Attempting to stop them, one female corrections officer deployed pepper spray, causing the men to come after her. Fearing for her life and virtue, she immediately fled and locked the door behind her.
According to PIX11, photos were obtained that showed smashed windows, destroyed electronics and puddles of water.
Correction Officers’ Benevolent Association President Elias Husamudeen claims that NYC Department of Corrections Commissioner Cynthia Brann is partly to blame for the animalistic ruckus that ensued over the weekend.
“This is yet another example of how Commissioner Brann has lost control of the jails. She refuses to bolster security and she continues to execute the mayor’s failed policies. As correction officers, we deserve better,” a statement from Husamudeen’s office read.
Brann’s DOC has pledged to re-arrest the inmates on new charges, including destruction of city property.
The Trinitarios have made headlines recently for their violent gang machete attacks, including one that killed 15-year-old Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz, a young homeless youth who aspired to be an NYPD detective. It is unknown if any of the men involved in the weekend melee were involved in his killing.
