Back in February, a St. Louis correctional facility witnessed massive riots, with corrections officers spending almost eight hours trying to regain control of the situation.

A riot broke out at the St. Louis Justice Centre on Sunday night, with around 60 inmates smashing windows, setting fires, and throwing stuff to the ground, according to FOX2.

According to reports, the unrest broke out around 8:45 p.m. on Sunday as prisoners were demanding court dates.
