A story I’ve been working on for a while.
“They’re heating up butter mixed with sugar and bleach in the microwaves to extreme temperatures and throwing it in the face of their targeted inmate,” said Purdy, a vice president at the B.C. Government Employees Union.
“It’s heated up for sometimes 10 or 15 minutes to the most extreme temperatures where it’s just bubbling.
“If it hits someone in the face, it actually will offer such severe burns that the face starts to disfigure or almost melt.”
This has actually been happening for years. The new part is a WorkSafe report into the Prince George Regional Corrections Centre ordering reduced microwave access:
“This report is regards to the issue of inmates using microwaves to heat butter and other condiments to a scalding temperature and using the mixture as a weapon against staff.”
