Prison guards 'forced inmates to have gladiator-style fights with other prisoners for entertainment'

Inmates in St Louis have revealed that they were forced to fight each other in order to entertain prison guards.

Now thirty inmates want to join the existing group of eight who have filed a federal lawsuit against the prison guards at the Medium Security Institution on Hall Street as they claim they were baited into fighting one another for their keeper's amusement.

Five guards were named in the suit and they were said to be the ones who forced inmates to fight in 'gladiator-style combat'.
