---------PENITENTIARY---------------------    GHOST   ------------------------INVESTIGATION-------

THE FOLLOWING  PHOTOS AND  DATA WAS GATHERED OVER THE YEARS AT THE OLD SANTA FE PRISON, BY WAY OF GHOST TOURS & INVESTIGATIONS + FILM WORK.  THE PRISON  HAS BEEN A STUDIO--OR MOVIE SET, AND I HAVE WORKED AS A SAG ACTOR AT THIS LOCATION A FEW TIMES. DURING THESE TIMES AT THE PRISON, I TOOK MANY PHOTOS AND EXPLORED THE PLACE.  THERE ARE NO BLATANT ORBS OR SHADES IN THESE PICTURES OF THE PRISON, BUT THE PLACE IS CREEPY TO THE POINT OF BEING OMINOUS, AND SOME OF THESE PHOTOS CAPTURE THAT EMOTION OR PERHAPS A SHADE IN ONE?   BELOW OUTSIDE OF THE PRISON.

THE ABOVE PHOTO--THE BUILDINGS IN THE BACKGROUND WERE ALL CONTROLLED BY THE INMATES. NOTE THE ENTRANCE TO THE RIGHT OF THE TALL TELEPHONE POLE, THAT OFFICE AREA WAS UNDER THE CONTROL OF THE PRISONERS.  ALL RECORDS OF WHO WAS INCARCERATED WERE DESTROYED BY THE RIOTERS. TO BEGIN WITH THERE WAS NO FIRM COUNT OF HOW MANY INMATES WERE HOUSED IN THE PRISON, AFTER THE RIOT--- THE CASUALTY LIST WAS QUESTIONED, DUE TO THE DESTROYED RECORDS AND THE FAULTY DATA THAT WAS IN PLACE BEFORE THE UPRISING.  33 DEAD INMATES IS THE OFFICIAL TALLY, BUT THAT NUMBER IS QUESTIONED AS BEING TO LOW.

EVERYTHING AFTER THE FENCE OR BEYOND THE TOWER WAS IN CONTROL OF THE INMATES DURING THE RIOT.

The conditions at this prison were terrible.  DO NOT LET A television show or movie, let you the viewer, think that before the riot, that life in this institution was tolerable.  IT WAS NOT.. Yes, these inmates were criminals. But what set off this bloody riot were the policies  that the civilian HIGH CHIEFS had put into place at this prison. Rehabilitation was almost non existent, it was a "LORD OF THE FLIES" world on steroids inside this bastille. Yet the civilian authorities had been warned that the overcrowded institution was a time bomb, but nothing was done about it.  

All those cell block buildings were in control of the inmates, this was a full scale takeover.

The guard tower did not fall into the inmates hands. It is questioned, just how many guard towers were manned due to how few authorities were on duty the night of the uprising. Below, this building was taken over by the rioters. This building contained offices and records, all the paperwork was destroyed. Identifications, sentences, biography, time served, you name it---all the information was lost--destroyed. This is one of the reasons why the authorities had such a hard time after the riot identifying who had been killed or possibly who had escaped.  The inmates thoroughly destroyed  the brain area of the prison.

ON FEBRUARY 2-3 1980, INMATES INSIDE THE SANTA FE PRISON RIOTED, WHAT FOLLOWED WAS CARNAGE AND BRUTAL TORTOROUS DEATH.  INMATES FOUGHT INMATES, GUARDS WERE CAPTURED AND BRUTALIZED ALONG WITH OTHER  PRISONERS. THE OFFICIAL TALLY WAS 33 DEAD AND HUNDREDS INJURED.

HISTORIANS CLAIM THAT THE SANTA FE PENIENTIARY UPRISING IS THE SECOND WORSE BLOODLETTING IN THE ANNALS OF AMERICAN CORRECTIONS.

THE ATTICA RIOT OF 1971, WHICH CLAIMED 43 LIVES IS TOUTED AS THE BLOODIEST AMERICAN PRISON RIOT OF ALL TIME. HOWEVER, SOME RESEARCHERS AND GUARDS THAT LIVED THROUGH THE SANTA FE RIOT, THINK THE CASUALTY COUNT DURING THE 36 HOUR SANTA FE DEBACLE IS NOT CORRECT.

AS STATED BEFORE: THE PRISON RECORDS OF THOSES HOUSED AT THE SANTA FE BIG HOUSE WERE DESTROYED AND MANY OF THE DEAD INMATES WERE BURNT TO ASHES OR MAIMED BEYOND RECOGNITION. IT IS SPECULATED THAT MORE INMATES WERE MURDERED DURING THE RIOT THAN WHAT IS RECORDED. IT IS A FACT THAT SOME CORPSES WERE BURNT TO CINDERS IN THE PRISON GYMNASIUM IN A BONFIRE. IT IS THOUGHT BY SOME THAT A FEW INMATES IN THE CONFUSION OF THE INITIAL TAKEOVER MANAGED TO ESCAPE THE PRISON.

THE SANTA FE PRISON IS CALLED IS CALLED "THE OLD MAIN"--- IT IS A PLACE FULL OF ODD ENERGIES. MOST PEOPLE GET THE  FEELING THAT THE ENERGY IN THE OLD MAIN IS PURE EVIL, FOR SOME, THE ENERGY IS SOLEMN THAT CAN  BE DESCRIBED AS DOCILE .  

THE COMPLEX IS NOW RENTED OUT AND USED AS A TRAINING AREA FOR THE POLICE AND MILITARY, ALSO THE PRISON IS USED AS A FILM SETS FOR MOVIE COMPANIES.  

HOW CURSED OR HAUNTED IS THE OLD NOW DESERTED PRISON?-- DEPEDNING ON THE PERSON, THE COMPLEX IS FILLED WITH LOST AND EVIL ENERGY OR A DIFFERENT KIND OF FORCE.  HOWEVER, WHILE INSIDE THE PRISON, ON OCCASION BATTERIES IN CAMERAS ARE DRAINED OF THEIR POWER OR THEY MALFUNCTION. 

A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE WORKED AT THE PRISON BE IT  FOR POLICE/MILITARY TRAINING OR MOVIE WORK, HAVE NO IDEA THAT THE AREAS THAT THEY ARE WORKING IN WAS TAKEN OVER BY THE  PRISONERS AND ALL KINDS OF ATROCITIES  HAPPENED THERE.

BELOW ARE SOME PICTURES FROM INSIDE THE COMPLEX, THERE ARE NO DRAMATIC ORB OR GHOSTLY IMAGES IN THESE PHOTOS,  AS COMPARED TO OTHER PHOTOS OF DIFFERENT  HAUNTED PLACES THAT ARE ON THIS SITE. SOME OF THE PRISON PHOTOS ARE MAYBE CREEPY AND ONE IS MAYBE A ? BUT MORE THAN LIKELY the ? PHOTO IS THE RESULT OF A  TRICK OF LIGHT… BUT ALL OF THESE PHOTOS HAVE A SAD ENERGY THAT PULSES THROUGH THEM.  

TO THE RIGHT IN THE ABOVE PICTURE  IS THE CONTROL ROOM. ONCE THE INMATES WERE ABLE TO GET INTO THIS ROOM. THEY WERE ABLE TO OPEN MANY OF THE DOORS INSIDE THE COMPLEX. THOSE BAR GATES THAT WOULD NOT OPEN WERE BURNED THROUGH BY WAY OF THE WELDING EQUIPMENT THE THE INMATES CAPTURED.  THE FLAMES FROM THE WELDER WAS USED TO TORTURE AND KILL MAINLY INMATES THAT WERE HOUSED IN CELL BLOCK 4.

BELOW IS A PHOTO FROM INSIDE THE CONTROL CENTER-- AT THE TIME OF THE RIOT-- THE GLASS THAT FRONTED THE HALLWAY WERE BIG SHEETS, THEY HAD NOT METAL SUPPORT LIKE THE ABOVE SQUARE FRAMES.  ONCE THE BIG SHEETS OF SUPPOSED NON BREAKABLE  GLASS WAS SMASHED, THE INMATES ENTERED INTO THE CONTROL ROOM.  THE ROOM HAS CHANGED A LOT SINCE 1980.  

BELOW THIS PHOTO IS A PHOTO FROM INSIDE THE CONTROL ROOM. ONE OF THE  CONSULS THAT CONTROLS THE DOORS AND OTHER THINGS INSIDE THE PRISON.

THE PLAQUE ON THE NEW REINFORCED STEEL SHATTERPROOF WINDOWS, STATES WHAT HAPPENED AT THE CONTROL ROOM WHEN THE RIOT BROKE OUT IN 1980. ONCE THE FELONS GAINED ACCESS TO THIS ROOM, THE RIOT SPREAD THROUGH OUT THE PRISON.  WHY? BECAUSE INSIDE THIS ROOM WERE THE KEYS TO THE PRISON AND THEY WERE NOW IN THE CONVICTS HANDS. THE LOCKED METAL DOORS THAT COULD CHECK OR ISOLATE THE RIOT WERE NOW OPENED EITHER BY KEYS OR (SUPPOSEDLY) REMOTE CONTROL DEVICES. THE REMOTE CONTROL BUTTON STORY IS CONTROVERSIAL. WHAT IS FACT THAT KEYS  THAT WERE CAPTURED WERE WHAT FREED INMATES FROM THEIR CELL BLOCKS. A FEW PEOPLE  CLAIM THAT A NUMBER OF PRISON DOORS WERE OPEN BY WAY OF PRESSING BUTTONS FROM THIS ROOM. SO WHAT IS THE TRUE STORY-- PROBABLY A COMBINATION OF EVERYTHING.  THE  REVUE THAT WENT ON AFTER THE PRISON WAS CAPTURED WAS NOT VERY THOROUGH.

CELL BLOCK 4 AND THE AREA OUTSIDE OF IT WAS THE SIGHT OF TERRIBLE CARNAGE.  THE EXECUTED IN THIS AREA OF THE PRISON DIED SLOW PAINFUL DEATHS. CELL BLOCK 4 HOUSED, PROTECTIVE CUSTODY INMATES.  PRISONERS THAT WERE IN FEAR FOR THEIR LIFE FROM OTHER PRISONERS LIVED HERE. THE  AREA WAS TO HOUSE 90 PRISONERS, AT THE TIME OF THE RIOT IT HOUSED  AROUND 200 PRISONERS. SOME CELLS ACCORDING TO PEOPLE THAT WERE THERE  HOUSED 3 INMATES. THE FELONS IN THIS AREA, WERE RAPISTS, CHILD MOLESTERS, PRISONERS WHO HAD BEEN RAPED BY OTHERS INSIDE THE COMPLEX AND WERE SEEKING PROTECTION, OR THOSE THAT HAD TESTIFIED AGAINST OTHER PRISONERS IN COURT OR HAD BEEN LABLED A "SNYTCH".

THE WORD "SNYTCH" MEANS SOMEBODY WHO HAS REPORTED TO THE GUARDS OR TO THE POLICE ON OTHER PRISONERS OE CRIMINALS.  SNYTCHING CAN MEAN GAINING FAVOR AMONGST THE GUARDS FOR BEING AN INFORMANT, OR IT MEANS LYING TO THE GUARDS AND TRYING TO FRAME ANOTHER PRISONER. OR IT COULD MEAN --- A PRISONER IS IN TROUBLE WITH OTHER INMATES AND TO SAVE HIS OWN LIFE HE TELLS THE GUARDS INFORMATION. 

THE PRISON WAS OVERPOPULATED---ON THE NIGHT OF THE RIOT.  THE PRISON HELD OVER 1,100 MEN BUT IT WAS BUILT TO HOLD A LITTLE OVER 700 INMATES.  ON THE NIGHT OF THE PRISON, THERE WERE, DEPENDING ON THE REPORT 12-14 GUARDS RUNNING THE PRISON OR BEING INSIDE THE "OLD MIAN".

IN MY INVESTIGATIONS I HAVE ASKED ABOUT THE GUARDS ON THE TOWER, HOW MANY WERE ON DUTY. I GET A VAGUE RESPONSE, I HAVE COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT IT IS POSSIBLE THAT A FEW OF THE TOWERS OR MANY OF THE TOWERS WERE NOT MANNED AT THE START OF THE RIOT. 

SOME PRISONERS WERE TOSSED OVER THE  BALCONY OR WERE HUNG FROM THE RAILING. OTHERS WERE TIED UP AND TORTURED WITH KNIVES, FISTS, OR A BLOW TORCH.

THE INDENTATIONS INTO THE CONCRETE FLOOR IS WHERE  ONE OF THE INMATES WAS DECAPITATED… WHAT EVER WAS USED IN THE MAIMING MADE IT's MARK. THE STORY VARIES ON WHAT KIND OF TOOK IT WAS, SHOVEL, HOE, etc..

WHAT A PRISONER DREW IN HIS CELL.

IS THIS PARANORMAL OR A TALL TALE, AS IN THE CHARCOAL OUTLINE WILL NOT GO AWAY…..THE FORM ON THE CONCRETE IS THAT OF ONE OF THE INMATES WHO WAS BURNED TO ASHES. ACCORDING TO LORE, NO MATTER HOW THIS SIGHT WAS CLEANED OR PAINTED---THE OUTLINE WOULD ALWAYS COME BACK.   

IN AND AROUND CELL BLOCK 4 ACCORDING TO THE AUTHORITIES,  IS WHERE 23 OF THE 33 INMATES WERE KILLED. THE OTHER 10 INMATES WERE KILLED IN DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE PRISON.

THE GAS CHAMBER.  

ABOVE --  I TRY TO BE AS SKEPTICAL AS I CAN BE --- THIS PHOTO IS PROBABLY THE RESULT OF UNFOCUSED LENS.  BUT EVERY NOW AND THEN ONE WOULD GET A SNAPSHOT OF ? INSIDE A CELL OR IN AREA WHERE ONE OF THE INMATES HAD BEEN MURDERED OR HAD LIVED BEFORE HE WAS KILLED.  THIS PHOTO COULD BE THE RESULT OF A DIRTY GLASS OR TRICK OF LIGHT OR MAYBE IT IS?  

I do not know of any legit video that shows evil or ghostly energy at this prison. The below video does capture video interference and a clanging door.  This is the best video that I have come across that captures maybe - something -- as in camera malfunction.

The below video  has a former prisoner telling what happened during the 1980 prison riot.

The following  below link will take you to another SANTA FE prison page --- this page has MATURE CONTENT--- it  exposes the carnage of the 1980 prison riot.  The page = Explicit slaughter -- as in what one would see in combat.  This page is not for the faint of heart. You see why the Santa Fe prison has bad vibes but the page is not about the paranormal…The riot at the prison is a microcosm of what is happening in the USA today, with murder, suicides and over doses. 
The USA today is in HOLOCAUST mode due to drugs flowing in across the border.  REHAB and MENTAL HEALTH HELP available to the public is better and cheaper than the corrections policies that are implemented by the government. AGAIN-- IT IS NOT A PARANORMAL PAGE-- that is why it this page not listed on the button choices-- it is facts and my views on why the prison system in the USA must be overhauled.
