    Officials said the guard's name would not be released until the notification of the next of kin.

    It's unknown what the inmate used to stab the victim.

    Pazin said authorities are working with the FBI and the federal prison system on the case.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    Guard dies after stabbing at Atwater prison

    By MERCED SUN-STAR
    last updated: June 21, 2008 09:49:47 AM

    ATWATER -- A correctional officer at the United States Penitentiary in Atwater is dead after being stabbed by inmates Friday, Merced County Sheriff Mark Pazin said.

    Although details are sketchy, Pazin said the officer, identified as Jose Rivera, 22, was transported to Mercy Medical Center Merced after the stabbing. The FBI is investigating and Pazin said his office will conduct the autopsy.

    Rivera was taken to the hospital at 3:30 p.m. and was pronounced dead at 4:15 p.m., Pazin said.

    Pazin said Rivera's death underscores the dangers that correctional officers face every day.

    A statement from the prison said Rivera was assaulted by two inmates with "homemade weapons" in a housing unit. The inmates were restrained by staff and placed into administrative detention, the statement said.

    Jesse Gonzalez, a spokesman for the prison, declined further comment. The inmates have not been identified.

    Another good man taken way too early. May the shitbags that did this rot in Hell. Prayers enroute to Officer Rivera's family.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.
