>> here at the penitentiary in new mexico we have a level ii facility. a level v facility. and we have a level vi facility. level ii is more of a restrictive, minimum inmate where you know, we allow to work outside with minimum supervision. level v is supervision all the time. and obviously level vi is a full-time observation of those inmates. >> you all right?
9:02 pm
>> this is the maximum security facility on level vi for the penitentiary of new mexico. pretty much houses the worst of the worst. these individuals are the worst of the worst within level vi and level vi is the worst within the whole state of new mexico. >> [ bleep ]. >> [ bleep ]. >> these individuals are housed, one per cell. they're escorted and restrained everywhere they go. in handcuffs or leg irons and belly chains. we do have two and three-man status individuals that are very violent. and they like to assault our staff. >> today we tag along with deputy warden joni brown on her way to deal with one of level vi's most notorious inmates. >> they have an inmate who is refusing to leave his cell. at this point they're going to go in and give him a directive to cuff up and come out. if not, then we're planning the use of force for cell extraction.
9:03 pm
>> turn around and be restrained. >> no. >> if you don't turn around and be restrained we'll have to forcibly remove you from your cell. are you going to come out? >> what's going to happen now? >> they're going to instruct them to come in and remove him from the cell. >> 5:24 p.m., we're here for inmate kevin blanco 41918 who has refused several directions to be restrained and escorted out of his cell. at this time a cell extraction team has been set up to remove him from his cell. at this time we're going to proceed to the cell. blanco -- in your cell. >> here's the door cover. blanco is giving no response.

9:06 pm
as far as disciplinary sanctions. he's already serving disciplinary time. we'll do a cell search. take any contraband, anything that he might use to three more feces out on inmates and staff. clean the cell out. decontaminate it from the o.c. and he'll be placed back in there. >> what was this about? >> blanco, you know what's going on here. throw the stuff out on the tier. if you don't want to stop. >> what did i throw out on the tier? >> you were throwing the liquids. >> go look at your cameras. if i threw out some liquid -- >> the camera would show it. >> when they first would open -- >> you actually closed the door yourself? >> when the door's closed it looks like this. he was spraying it out like a hose. see right there? he's actually shooting it out. so you come over here, you can see whatever is all over the walls, the wet spots over here. that was all feces he was
9:07 pm
shooting at us. if you look at my pants, there's feces on my pants, feces on my shirt. he was throwing feces. or fecal matter. whatever you want to call it. >> they say i was throwing liquid out the door. >> there is feces and urine all over yourself. >> where? >> inside of your cell. >> there ain't no feces in my cell. >> there is. >> go look at my cell. you see if there's any feces. >> tell me what your point is, okay? you're saying that you didn't do what they said you did. >> exactly. >> well -- >> [ bleep ], [ bleep ], put feces in my damn cell? [ bleep ] i'm talking to you -- >> where is the feces at? i don't see no [ bleep ] feces. >> it's in your cell. >> all these camera men -- okay. make you all go --
9:08 pm
>> can i talk to you? >> yeah. -- cuff port and i'll stand there and talk to you. >> after i talk to you. i want to make sure you guys understand what i'm saying. you don't want to see anymore [ bleep ] lies. come on. >> would you get to the point, kevin. what caused all of this today in the beginning? did you start to throw something at them? did you discuss something with him? did you have a conflict with the officer? >> today gets me -- they get in a confrontation. >> so you had an issue earlier in the day and then they were hesitant to open the food port, right? because of that. >> you're right. okay. >> so did you have a conflict with the officer? >> yes. i sure did. >> so are we all good then for the time being? >> because y'all want to start these [ bleep ] >> uh-huh.
9:09 pm
>> if you want to come -- no, tomorrow you can expect to be here next week and the week until i get to [ bleep ]. y'all want to play games and we gonna play. >> and then you want to stand here and threaten to keep playing games? >> you're right. because y'all you 1hand [ bleep ] right and i am. and i am going to continue to play games. >> all right, well -- >> [ bleep ]. >> well, let the games begin. but it doesn't have to go this way. >> yeah, whatever. >> well, it doesn't. >> whatever. coming up -- blanco versus staff, round two. >> two more times and i come down.ee differently. only flonase is approved to relieve both your itchy, watery eyes and congestion. no other nasal allergy spray can say that. complete allergy relief or incomplete. let your eyes decide. flonase changes everything. and an early morning mode.ode. and a partly sunny mode. and an outside... to clear inside mode. transitions signature adaptive lenses now have chromea7 technology...

9:13 pm
>> we're getting ready for dinner. and skipping the wonderful chow hall food today. we try to avoid that as much as possible. we try to cook for ourselves with stuff that we get from the commissary. we've made the burritos from hell. it's the best we can do with what we have here. there's like beef stew, chili beans, beans, rice. and a bunch of spices and stuff like that. and some cheese, of course. >> my dad always asked me what will we eat for the evening and i tell them mystery meat, because you never know what we're eating here. of course there's a menu but when you go, it doesn't look like what's on the menu. >> you've got chef boy r.j. >> we've become micro masters after a while and no open flame or anything but after trial and
9:14 pm
error, here we are. >> i don't know but i'm smelling some chicken. >> that's black beans. >> i was hoping for watermelon, collard greens, something. >> the hazards of neighbors and short walls. >> well, i'm in the santa fe level ii murph. which is just a minimum restrict unit, which is, you've got more movement than the level iiis. with me it's kind of hard because i got two kids by myself. my kids will ask me what i do to get in here. and i don't know if they understood me but i tried to tell them the best i could. >> what did you tell them, literally? >> literally, i just told them like sometimes people die and i
9:15 pm
asked them you know how sometimes people die? and they said yeah. and i said okay you see tv a lot how people are shooting other people and stuff like that and they said yeah. and they said movies. and i said, yeah, just like the movies. that's what happened to me, i was being bad. i shot a guy and i came in here. i don't think they really understood it, but they left it at that. >> how do you maintain being a father? >> just through letters and phone calls really. that way i know i can talk to them and visit. since i got here i was pretty much the barber. i go if there and cut hair pretty much all day. and it would take up a lot of time. as long as i was staying busy or active, i was good to go. >> what are we going to do today? >> whatever. >> whatever. you know what happens when i get creative. anything we can do to make him look better. kind of got a little swirl or something in mind.
9:16 pm
i like putting little designs in it. that way i can keep my own little personality going. this is something really different because everybody else has their own little thing. >> ever since inmate kevin blanco arrived at the penitentiary of new mexico in 1997 he's made quite an impression on staff. >> kevin blanco can be unpredictable. you really don't know how he's going to behave from one day to the next. one day he kind of acts like your friend. the next day he's like the crazy animal behind the door. >> today, blanco continues to test the patience of pnm officers, refusing to return a prison issued razor after shaving. >> he has a razor in his cell. i'm not going to play games with him. >> you're not five years old. >> i'm asking you man to man. are we doing this? >> you have to extract him. gas him, put him back in medical. put him in medical for another 72 hours.
9:17 pm
>> are you going to give me the razor? i'm giving you a direct order, give me that razor. >> okay, no. >> it takes a toll on everybody. we're down here dealing with this guy every day when we could be doing our job doing other things. we have opportunities to relinquish the razor. if he doesn't do it and then we will set up an extraction team and go in there. >> luckily for everyone involved, blanco gives up the razor. >> hear me out though. >> listen. i'm listening. >> [ bleep ] it's over [ bleep ] i am getting [ bleep ] >> i understand that, kevin. he claims it's all over and done with. he's going to start from scratch. for now it's okay. i believe he's going to be in medical at least for the rest of the night. that's -- that's kevin blanco for you. next, the deputy warden tries talking some sense to blanco. >> do you have reason to be conscious?
9:18 pm
and davon's haircut has attracted the wrong attention. >> do we just let him go out there? >> that needs to be fixed. you need to be careful on how you address the staff here. another day, and i'm still struggling with my diabetes. i do my best to manage. but it's hard to keep up with it. your body and your diabetes change over time. your treatment plan may too. know your options. once-daily toujeo® is a long-acting insulin from the makers of lantus®. it releases slowly to provide consistent insulin levels for a full 24 hours. toujeo® also provides proven full 24-hour blood sugar control and significant a1c reduction. toujeo® is a long-acting, man-made insulin used to control high blood sugar in adults with diabetes. it contains 3 times as much insulin in 1 milliliter as standard insulin. don't use toujeo® to treat diabetic ketoacidosis, during episodes of low blood sugar, or if you're allergic to insulin.
9:19 pm
allergic reaction may occur and may be life threatening. don't reuse needles or share insulin pens, even if the needle has been changed. the most common side effect is low blood sugar, which can be serious and life threatening. it may cause shaking, sweating, fast heartbeat, and blurred vision. check your blood sugar levels daily while using toujeo®. injection site reactions may occur. don't change your dose or type of insulin without talking to your doctor. tell your doctor if you take other medicines and about all your medical conditions. insulins, including toujeo, in combination with tzds (thiazolidinediones) may cause serious side effects like heart failure that can lead to death, even if you've never had heart failure before. don't dilute or mix toujeo® with other insulins or solutions as it may not work as intended and you may lose blood sugar control, which could be serious. pay no more than $15 per prescription for 12 months. eligibility restrictions apply. learn more at toujeo.com/info or call 800-580-3421.
9:20 pm
also, 9 out of 10 medicare part d patients can get toujeo® at the lowest branded copay. ask your doctor about the proven full 24-hour blood sugar control of toujeo®.
9:21 pm
davon lymon's expression of individuality has started a trend among the level ii inmates. but it has also raised concern with the staff. >> i did his hair a couple of days ago. the captain told him, i guess, this morning if he doesn't take it off he's going to the hole. and i'm not allowed to do it no more to my hair. >> okay. you guys wait here for a minute. i have a question. >> sure. on the barber. on the haircut. >> right. >> they're standing at my door saying that we're going to lock the guy up if he doesn't -- >> actually what happened with this inmate and it was inmate damon, he got an attitude is
9:22 pm
what he did and what i did was started challenging him concerning his customized haircut. i said if we start allowing that, what's going to happen is all the other inmates will be expecting that. >> right. >> and it's just going to create problems. >> i figured that was what your concern was. we have to establish what we're going to allow. and what we're not. if we're going to allow basic haircuts, you know -- >> i think that's what we need to stick to is just the basic haircut. >> all right, thank you. the most important thing is to keep problems from happening in prison, or business or whatever is that you're consistent. but if you how one person to do it and then you target somebody else, then we run into situations like this. all right. this is the deal. i've talked to the chief security and him and i decided together that we're not going to
9:23 pm
allow the tailored haircuts. would you turn around and let me see your haircut? it can be interpreted in several different ways. it could be interpreted as a tribal sign. it can be interpreted as a gang sign. you, i believe, questioned the captain when he started talking to you about your haircut. now, that's not your place as a level ii inmate. you guys initially approached me, you're going to get locked up if you don't change your haircut. my understanding is that it was the way that you spoke to the captain that almost got you locked up. okay? so we have the haircut thing solved. all of the inmates are going to be advised. but you need to be careful on how you address the staff here. okay? >> do we just let them grow out then? >> just let them grow out. that needs to be fixed. okay? because that was the directive of the captain. all right? >> all right. >> all right, thank you very much.
9:24 pm
>> all right. >> oh, man. >> i don't want to go -- >> don't even touch that part. >> all right, turn around. let me see. i don't see any difference. that's my biggest life and death decision of today, you know. whether to let you have your hair that way. all right. let it stay.
9:25 pm
just don't do it again. and you, too. all right? >> back in level vi we caught up with kevin blanco, who seemed in much better spirits since we last saw him. >> do you want to stand here and threaten to keep playing game? >> you're right. because you all -- you're 100% [ bleep ] right and i am. >> can we talk to me about, is it an anger problem? what is the situation with you? >> i don't think i have an anger problem. i just don't like to be lied to. for any individual who is going to push my buttons. instead of leaving me alone and let me do my time, that's my way of letting them know, leave me alone and let me do my time. >> talk to me a little bit about what you've done. how you acted out.
9:26 pm
>> by -- douching. >> what's that? >> which is throwing urine on them. just your way of letting them know to leave you alone. i mean we're behind the door 24/7. you got officers that go around antagonizing. so, you know, we're only limited to certain things we can do. is it something i'm proud of? no. is it something i'm ashamed of? yes. i always live a negative lifestyle. i always wanted things fast. which resulted in me selling drugs and robbing and things like that. but as i got older i started realizing a lot of different things. i mean endured a lot of losses. which was my son. >> who has your son? >> some people in colorado.
9:27 pm
>> he's adopted? >> yeah. coming to prison. they made me sit down and reflect on a lot of things in life. i still get angry sometimes. and want to resort to violence. but at the same time i've got to hold myself back because i know that's not the right thing to do. but i guess i'm in a struggle within myself. so until i reach that stage, mastered that, do they have reason to be cautious? yeah, they do. >> after our interview we followed blanco to the yard where he took the opportunity to disrupt prison functions yet again. >> you're just going to be stopped. >> i will let you just say what you want to say because i know that's not the way to go. i'm on long-term disciplinary. if i -- it goes back to the same thing.
9:28 pm
i already gave you guys 18 days over from the report you're talking about. okay. so my 20 days is up so can i go back to another cell? >> no. you got another report. >> i got another -- >> before the 60 days were up. did you not? >> yeah. >> so you didn't have 60 days. because you got another report within that 60-day time frame. so are we going to have any issues until this -- >> whatever y'all say. i mean y'all have yourselves -- you're right. i talk to you later. thank you. thank you all. coming up, the situation between c.e.r.t. and blanco escalates. about ten feet. plus davon's in trouble again. >> seems we got a bunch of snitches. we ain't got to be doing nothing. >> they still going to get you.

9:30 pm
vo: namenda xr doesn't change how the disease progresses. it shouldn't be taken by anyone allergic to memantine, or who's had a bad reaction to namenda xr or its ingredients. before starting treatment, tell their doctor if they have, or ever had, a seizure disorder, difficulty passing urine, liver, kidney or bladder problems, and about medications they're taking. certain medications, changes in diet, or medical conditions may affect the amount of namenda xr in the body and may increase side effects. the most common side effects are headache, diarrhea, and dizziness. all my life, she's been there for me. now i am giving back. ask their doctor about once-daily namenda xr and learn about a free trial offer at namendaxr.com. man 1: he just got fired. man 2: why? man 1: network breach. man 2: since when do they fire ceos for computer problems?

9:34 pm
he's ignoring the issues. >> they want to sit there and play their little [ bleep ] games. keep me in the cell. they want to keep me there. i'll give them reason to keep me in the cell. y'all thought i was playing when i told you that. y'all want to keep me in the cell. -- you guys. >> kevin blanco, i'm giving you a directive to come out. >> okay and i'm refusing. >> any time inmates refuse to peacefully exit their cells, officers must move forward with standard extraction protocol. >> what's going on, blanco? >> man, come on. y'all can go. >> no, i'm not coming out. y'all want a reason to [ bleep ]. >> branch on the 19 yard. 1510, blanco's refusing to come
9:35 pm

9:36 pm
809, be advised i just gave blanco his third directive to be restrained. he refused. now we're going to do whatever we need to do to get him out of there safely for everybody. him included. this is what's going to happen. we're going to go in. give him some directives. they're bringing k-9 down. if the directives don't work, then we're going to deploy with the o.c. if the o.c. doesn't work from the corner that you're at, then you need to get back in the stack. okay? so you're going to go to one corner and i'll be at the door and we'll try on crisscross in and see if we can get in. if the wind's too bad and then we will drop a cs grenade. see what effect that has. from that, if that doesn't work we'll elevate to the shotgun. i don't want the shotgun entering. gerald, you're going to take the shot. okay? the shotgun doesn't go in once you take your shots you back out.
9:37 pm

9:38 pm
blanco, one more directive, you coming out, we're going to drop o.c. in the cage. everybody up. >> you guys done yet? >> coming out, blanco? >> you guys done? >> blanco still refuses to comply. forcing c.e.r.t. to escalate to nonlethal shotgun rounds. >> get down and take a shot. >> come on down, blanco. >> when you're ready. give him another one.
9:39 pm
>> coming down, blanco. >> good shot. >> i'll come down if you shoot me one more time. >> all right. >> hold up. >> medical? >> hold up. >> he refuses. >> i refuse. i'm all right. i'm 100% all right. >> hold on, blanco. >> check this out. >> yeah. >> we're going to just take our photographs. after that if you want to refuse medical, we'll give you your clothes back and we'll take you back. we'll get our pictures, give your clothes back and you sign the medical refusal and you're on your way back home.
9:40 pm
>> still got the camera. >> put him in the cage. >> with the extraction a success, deputy warden jaramillo debriefs with his teams. >> we need to document it very clearly about the limited time frame between taking it from one extreme to the next. >> yeah. once the team was put together and we entered the rec pen, we approached the rec pen he was in. i gave him verbal directives to come out and he refused my directives. and advised him that we were going to introduce o.c. we attempted to hit him with the o.c. but it didn't reach him. after that we elevated to cs. the cs didn't have any effect. we then elevated with a shotgun. after the sixth round he complied.
9:41 pm
came to the cuffing port, and he was restrained and removed from the area. >> what was his persona at the time when this was happening? could you tell he was being hit? was he immediately responding to it? >> no, it didn't seem like he had any immediate effects at all from any of the rounds. >> all right, if he was stabbing somebody, they're not going to stop him. >> he just eventually climbed down off the basketball goal, and surrendered. next, staff may have won the battle, but to blanco, this means war. >> he was being disruptive in his cell. so brought him over here to the medical and the crisis cell. >> strip down and stay right there. ibs-d. you know the symptoms when they start. abdominal pain. urgent diarrhea. now there's prescription xifaxan. xifaxan is a new ibs-d treatment that helps relieve your diarrhea and abdominal pain symptoms. and xifaxan works differently.
9:42 pm
it's a prescription antibiotic that acts mainly in the digestive tract. do not use xifaxan if you have a history of sensitivity to rifaximin, rifamycin antibiotic agents, or any components of xifaxan. tell your doctor right away if your diarrhea worsens while taking xifaxan, as this may be a sign of a serious or even fatal condition. tell your doctor if you have liver disease or are taking other medications, because these may increase the amount of xifaxan in your body. tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan on becoming pregnant, or are nursing. the most common side effects are nausea and an increase in liver enzymes. if you think you have ibs with diarrhea, talk to your doctor about new xifaxan. wheall i can think abouthit,
