Lieber: 2 guards for 229 of 'worst' prisoners
Lieber: 2 guards for 229 of 'worst' prisoners | The Post and Courier, Charleston SC - News, Sports, Entertainment
The only two correctional officers standing watch at a Ridgeville prison dormitory that houses 229 of the state's most egregious offenders were injured Wednesday night after inmates lashed out and set off a five-hour riot.
Lady on the RIOT which took place last night: The situation at Lieber, the conditions & treatment of the prisoners is not only unhealthy, physically & mentally to the inmates immured there, but dangerous to CO's & staff as well. Inmates who are locked down due to budget shortages, short staffing, who receive just 1 bologna sandwich a day for 2wks is an abomination to the penal system. When inmates are treated thusly, upon release are often bitter. Do you think they go after the individuals who caused this pain & misery? Or do they go after those within the social realms who they have the greatest contact with, because they just sat on their hands???? 20 CO's to contain a prison of this size & security status is dangerous not only to the staff, but the community. 2 CO's for 229 men is unacceptable.....Lady Gray/ Judged Men Alliance
