One unit housing about 100 inmates at the MacDougall-Walker Correctional Institution in Suffield has been put in lockdown after an assault on a counselor at the facility.   Corrections officials say the counselor was punched in the face in the incident at about 2:30 Tuesday, but was not seriously hurt.

That particular housing unit,  though not all of MacDougall-Walker, was placed in lockdown and State Police were called to press charges.  A spokesman says the inmate will be reassigned to Northern Correctional.

    Hmmm… And what’s going to happen when we layoff a thousand DOC staff??
