It's not good this morning. Many of the news stations did not provide very good updates and many families went to social media.

I've seen pictures from the inside. I couldn't sleep well last night. This is not only heartbreaking, it's frustrating because we as families have been pleading with the director for years!

This is a horrible situation for all involved.

Thank you Nim, I was restless last night after hearing the news. I finally heard from my love a few hours ago. He wanted to hear my voice just as much as I appreciated the sound of his.

My heart is heavy thinking of the families today. So many feel these men deserved this because they were incarcerated. With the internet you see the darkest side of people. Sadly so many are sharing the cell phone footage of what happened last night and that's more disturbing.

I couldn't take listening to the broken record of the Governor and SCDC Director. It's sad they will not speak on the realities of what has been happening. Lives are being lost and they want to save face.

'Territory, contraband, cell phones' behind SC prison 'mass casualty incident' that left 7 dead


"The director of the South Carolina Department of Corrections said Sunday's prison riot at Lee Correctional Institution that killed seven inmates and left 17 others injured was about territory, contraband, and cell phones within the facility.

"These folks are fighting over real money and real territory while they are incarcerated," Stirling said."

Sending peace and prayers to everyone involved-the inmates and their families and the COs and their families also. May everyone on both "sides" find peace.

This is terrible and condolences go out to all the families. Now SCDC is looking into cell phone jammers. They are getting tired of this out of control cell phone issue.

An hours-long deadly fight between inmates at a maximum-security prison in South Carolina was the result of a gang war fought over territory and money that was fueled by the use of cell phones thrown over the fence or smuggled inside, prison officials said at press conference Monday.

I want to stress to everyone that this had NOTHING to do with cell phones. That's the same smokescreen used to not address the actual problems within the prison system here.

This particular situation has nothing to do with contraband.

We are a small family of many in the world of incarceration. Yesterday was emotionally draining, and many of us relied upon each other via text messages and social media for comfort and support, especially those who have loved ones at Lee.

What was shared in the press conference was shameful yet not surprising.

What hurt the most is many found out the status of their loved ones via social media, not from anyone at the prison.

It wasn't until this morning that I realized they are calling this the worst riot in the past 25 years

As expected, many are on modified lockdown until this passes.

Thank each of your for your concerns and support, it's appreciated and shared.

I just saw this story in my fb news feed as well.
Heartbreaking.
Im so sorry for everyone who's lost a loved one, and for everyone really.
How scary.
I wont repost the story I saw but it did have a blurb at the end that another inmate was killed in Feb. (maybe that had something to do with it?)
