    Inmate killed after riot at British Columbia prison
    By Associated Press
    AGASSIZ, British Columbia - An inmate at a federal prison in Agassiz, British Columbia, has been killed after an uprising.

    CKNW, a radio station in Vancouver, says inmates at Mountain Institution started breaking windows around 10 p.m. Saturday.

    The station identified the man killed as 39-year-old Michael Andrew Gibbon. A spokesman for Corrections Canada says it's unclear if Gibbon was attacked or got caught up in the violence.

    Mountain Institution is a medium-security prison east of Vancouver that houses almost 500 inmates.

    Not to make light of the situation, but I just have the hardest time wrapping my mind around Canadians in prison. Canadia (as I call it) just seems like the most docile country. I just imagine the prisoners sitting around eating back bacon and maple syrup and discussing the complexities of hockey or curling. And I love how the article says that there was an "uprising." Not a riot. Just a game of hop-scotch gone wrong.
