ADOC says while all facilities remain operational, the work stoppages have affected food services since inmate workers make up a large part of the facility support workforce. State officials said the attack happened in January 2021, when officers used excessive force to remove prisoners from their cells in a process called extraction that is only supposed to be used if inmates refuse orders to leave their cells on their own or pose a danger to themselves or others. Prison officials say it is common practice nationwide to utilize inmate workers in various critical services, like food service and laundry. While the stoppage is ongoing, the facilities have been on a holiday meal schedule. Valenzuela, who prosecutors say armed himself with a screwdriver for the melee at the park, was sentenced to a stipulated eight-year term.

The schedule allows for two meals per day instead of three. Officers wore riot gear, carried shields, and deployed pepper spray to remove 22 prisoners from their cells, a state report on the incident found . “This is not a retaliatory measure,” ADOC says. “But logistically necessary to ensure that other critical services are being provided.
