‘They did nothing’: Warnings were there before 7 died at SC prison, former admin says

"In the weeks before a riot killed seven inmates at South Carolina’s Lee Correctional Institution, staff members warned wardens and others that more and more inmates were armed, the former deputy director of the state’s Department of Corrections said.

But the higher-ups at Lee Correctional didn’t listen, said Michael McCall, a 33-year employee of the department who retired as the department’s deputy director of operations in March.

“Nothing was being done, and I can tell you it was never reported to me or my staff or my regional directors,” said McCall, who regularly met with wardens and monitored activity at prisons across the state. “...Whenever they heard from the employees that these inmates were making tons of shanks, that should have been a red flag.”"
