[suspenseful music] Now, 15 claims to be,
or attempts to be, mute, but he’s not deaf. Give him a clear
verbal directive, and we’ll call
that the first one. We have an inmate that’s
refusing to be restrained. So we’re going to see
what the problem is. Inmate [bleep],, come to
the door and be restrained. We’re going to gas you, and
you’re coming out of the cell. I wouldn’t recommend that you
take that course of action. I think you should probably
come out and be restrained. But if you don’t do
that, that’s a grown man decision you’re making on
your own, do you understand? If you have an inmate that’s
refusing to move, come out of their cell, for some reason,
maybe they have contraband or a weapon, we do
procedures and precautions and move them out. He’s refusing. The worst part about this
job is the unpredictable stuff. Not knowing what an inmate has,
you have to be very careful. You could not go home. The recent tragedies
of cops being killed, especially here in New Mexico,
it hits a sense of home. It makes me want to watch
out for people that are in this job with you as well. So I decided to
join the extraction. The extraction team consists
with a shield man, strong arm, strong leg, weak leg, weak arm,
and then you have a camera guy. And our job is to go in there,
whatever that inmate’s doing, to control him, get him
cuffed, bring him out safe, take him to medical, and find
out whatever is wrong with him. Anytime they call
for responders, we’re a little more on edge. If this inmate wasn’t
willing to cooperate, OC chemicals are deployed. So we’ll escort these inmates
around him down the pod, just to make sure, you
can never be too careful. My name is Sergeant
Eduardo Ortiaga. The camera person
is Jason Martinez. The reason for the
extraction is, inmate refusing to be restrained. This is my extraction team. Let’s put our gas masks on. The extraction team, a lot
of the COs, had at least three or plus years on me. Being young and having that
type of pressure on my back to, you know, you better
come out and we’re picking you to do
this, that in a sense is kind of dangerous because
I could get someone hurt. You got to get real
serious because this is potentially an inmate
that– he doesn’t want to come out for some reason. When you go in there, he could
injure you or your partners. He obviously has
something or is trying, like I said, to hurt staff. So we’ve got to try and
isolate him and prevent it from him hurting
any other inmate or any of the staff members. This is Sergeant Ortiaga. I need you come to your food
port to be restrained, sir. I’m going to tell
you one more time, you need to come to your
food port and be restrained or chemical agents will
be deployed at this time. Stand up and come
to the food port. Go ahead. He’s going towards
underneath his bunk. Come to the door. Come to the door. Come to the door. The inmate actually took
about 2 and 1/2 cans of mace, and he wasn’t compliant. We’re going to go in. All right. Being the shield guy,
I’m the first guy to go in. And you’ve got those
nerves, those butterflies. You don’t want to
make a mistake– bad mistake that’s going to
cost them their life forever. [slipping] [coughing] [scuffle] Give me your arm. [expletive] Give me your arm! Give me your arm! [shouting] It was hard for us already
because the floor was slippery. But we ran in there, and we
were able to contain him so he couldn’t do anything else. Hey, I’m bleeding. [coughing] Hey, I’m bleeding.
