Default Commentary: SC prisons need far more guards — and far more transparency

Commentary: SC prisons need far more guards — and far more transparency

"Here is what the people who run South Carolina’s prisons don’t want you to know: that a month before America’s deadliest riot in a quarter century they were warned that the state’s corrections system was operating with half the staff required to keep it safe.

That warning came from the South Carolina Department of Corrections’ own consultant who filed his confidential report last March, weeks before Lee Correctional in Bishopville exploded in a night of violence that left seven dead and 22 injured. The report remained mostly buried in the SCDC’s executive offices until I obtained it through a Freedom of Information Act request. Even then about 178 pages of the 320-page document were redacted — including staffing levels for every prison and who knows what else?"

"Waiting is negative; hoping is positive. so try to wait with hope. This will help you remember that you're on your way to something worth waiting for."
