All sorts of bad things do happen in jail, yes. The guards try to control it, but it can't always be stopped. Tell your son not to commit crimes next time.

My brother is a prison guard in a medium security state prison in New York. He said the prisoners attempt to fight all the time but the guards are trained to control them. My brother is highly trained in self defense and conflict resolution. The prisoners have made weapons out of toothbrushes and plastic eating utensils but he's trained to look for that kind of stuff. I can't believe that Texas would be much different.

I understand your concern, as to if they do anything about it the answer is probably not. Look at as it being a possible deterrent for him to not put himself in the position to be there again.

There should have been a report filed by a jailer for assault. Just because they are inmates in a county jail doesn't mean that they can fight in jail and get away with it because they have other charges. MAKE SURE THEY FILED A REPORT.

Jail is much nicer than prison. I hope he learns how to conduct himself so that he does not do more serious time.

The fact is, Detention Officers make about $13 an hour where I worked. Although they try to do their job, they are horribly under-staffed and over-worked. Even if they saw the assault, they would have to call in every available officer and lockdown everyone before they could take effective action.

Our intake room had about 20 guys in it sleeping head to toe and lined up next to each other. There was a lone crapper in the corner. There is no way a detention officer could go into that room safely if there was a fight. On the plus side, rape is very rare in most jails, that is more of a prison problem. Jail inmates are there less than a year and are a less serious threat.

Stay out of jail is all you can take from this.

People get murdered for baloney andwiches in jail. Be glad they haven't gang raped him yet, or maybe they did and he is too ashamed to tell you. At least he may learn to behave out of this, if he survives.

Think about it......ofocurse there are fights and ofcourse the guards TRY to stop it. but there are murders and everything in there so they obivously don't follows the rule for why would they be in there then?

Give it up, Mom. There is nothing you can do. He will learn the procedure for getting along in jail. If he can't make bail he is stuck. Don't call the jail again or it could work against him by the guards. No, they don't jump right in and stop things unless they are in the mood. He did the crime, this goes along with it, sorry to say.

not only do people fight.. they rape each other, since there's no girls in jail, the men rape weaker men

I wonder if your son is just not telling you these things for you to feel sorry for him. It seems to me that he has been and still continues to manipulate you.

Let him go, and let him pay for what he has done. It doesn't seem to me either that he is sorry for he has done.
