      He was killed by the aryan brotherhood for a hit he did 30 to 40 years ago and for disrespecting them on the tier in the shu for the past 30 years. So as soon as they were all let out the shu onto the mainline they went after him. Naturally.

      @Bryon Stephens You don't know history of you think he was a cell Warrior. If he was a Cell Warrior, why did the AB try time and time again to kill him?
      Why did the COs try to set him up for decades?
      He was one of the San Quentin Six, do some research on that. That's one of the reasons why he was killed.
      You can't be a cell soldier/warrior when you have COs, a well known prison gang, etc trying to for decades to kill you.
      The AB and COs hated him so much they tried and conspired for over 40+yrs to get him. That should tell you something about the work he put in on them.
      Then they needed the help of the Southern Mexicans and COs just to get him.

    he was one of the founders of the Black Guerilla Family.

I was told by someone who was at this particular jail at the time of the stabbing that Hugo was killed within minutes of being on the mainline.

    How likely the guards may have encouraged this with un spoken assurances that whoever killed wouldn't have drugs seized in a cell search? Slashing a guard throat in jail would surely make you a lifelong target for revenge by every guard in the jail?

No empathy that a human live was taken away. No understanding that a murder was committed in a jail. The place were something like this should never happend and you celebrate?? No wonder things are more dangerous in jail than on the streets! Good luck all of you.
