Caption:

As the ringleader went by inside, screaming, a group of prisoners leaped to the mesh-covered windows and raised a din. Another group, who were apparently through with the rioting, began to order the noise-maker to be quiet. An hour later the same group managed to stave off another demonstration when yells were heard.
