    7 inmates dead, 17 injured in South Carolina prison fighting

    COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — A South Carolina prisons spokesman says seven inmates are dead and 17 others required outside medical attention after hours of fighting inside a maximum security prison.

    Prisons spokesman Jeff Taillon announced the grim outcome after State Law Enforcement Division agents helped secure Lee Correctional Institution around 3 a.m. Monday.

    Taillon said no officers were wounded after multiple inmate fights broke out at 7:15 p.m. Sunday.

    Lee County Fire/Rescue said ambulances from at least seven jurisdictions lined up outside the prison to tend to the wounded. The local coroner's office also responded.

    The maximum-security facility in Bishopville houses about 1,500 inmates, some of South Carolina's most violent and longest-serving offenders. Two officers were stabbed in a 2015 fight. One inmate killed another in February.

    Very easy to put correctional officers down, it is another thing to walk off into a riot situation unarmed to try and rescue someone who would just as soon see you dead. Tear gas and pepper spray are about all that is allowed to be used against inmates INSIDE of a prison. If they are not right in the head CS and pepper spray have no effect on them.

    Imagine now, the hell that is coming to the FUSA,
    when the prison cell doors are thrown wide open,
    and tens of thousands of hard core convicts,
    are released back out onto the streets.

    Its coming, Zero started it, just a few.

    The next releases, are going to clear out many of
    the over crowded prisons.

    You had best be ready for them.
    They will be arriving, and they will be looking for payback.

    Please be safe everyone, and please arm up.

    Regards to all deplorables.

    I know that area of South Carolina very well.

    Lee County, is located in the Pee Dee area of The Palmetto State,
    an area that I have called for decades, the new South Africa.

    No other info will most likely be forthcoming,
    about what started the uprising, and who didnt make it.

    I do have my suspicions, just based on the histories
    of such uprisings.

    Please be safe everyone, and please arm up.

    Inmate: Bodies stacked in 'macabre woodpile' in prison riot

    COLUMBIA, S.C. — Apr 16, 2018, 11:24 PM ET

    As the hours dragged on during a riot at a South Carolina prison, bodies piled up on the sidewalk. An inmate inside watched in dismay as several fellow prisoners, two he knew well, lay dead and dying, their bodies leaving trails of blood leading back inside the prison walls.

    One bloodied man tried to get up before he "started into that 'death rattle' people often hear about, but never experience firsthand," the inmate told The Associated Press after the attack. Moments later, the dying man was silent, another casualty of the night's events.

    The inmate sent messages to AP as events unfolded overnight Sunday into Monday morning at Lee Correctional Institution. At the end of the seven-hour ordeal, seven inmates lay dead, with 17 others sent to hospitals for treatment.

    With many cell door locks broken at Lee, a maximum-security prison, the inmate told AP he freely went outside, where he said he saw bodies "literally stacked on top of each other, like some macabre woodpile."

    State officials Monday blamed the carnage on a turf war between gangs over territory, money and contraband items like cellphones. For seven hours, Corrections Director Bryan Stirling said, inmates armed with homemade knives fought each other, leaving seven dead in the worst U.S. prison riot in a quarter-century. Most of the slain were stabbed or slashed; the remainder appeared to have been beaten, Lee County Coroner Larry Logan said.

    The first fight started in a dorm about 7:15 p.m. Sunday and appeared to be contained before suddenly starting in two other dorms. No prison guards were hurt. Stirling said they followed protocol by backing out and asking for support. It took several hours to restore order, but once a special SWAT team entered, the inmates gave up peacefully, he said.

    The prisoner who saw the riot exchanged messages with AP on the condition of anonymity because he is not allowed to have a cellphone and fears retribution from other inmates. He said he saw several attackers taunt a rival gang member who was badly injured.

    "I have no doubt he could have had a fighting chance if someone had simply opened the gate and let the others carry him up front," the inmate told AP. "The man died laying on a sidewalk with some of the people who helped kill him laughing at him and taunting him ..."

    The inmate said he and other prisoners roamed around freely at the prison in Bishopville, about 40 miles (65 kilometers) east of Columbia. Hours after the violence started, no corrections officers or medical personnel attended to the dead or dying, he said.

    "The COs (corrections officers) never even attempted to render aid, nor quell the disturbance," he said. "They just sat in the control bubble, called the issue in, then sat on their collective asses."

    Stirling said the response teams entered as fast as they could.

    "We gathered as many people as we could, as quickly as we could and went in as soon as we thought it was safe for our staff," he said.

    The slain were serving anywhere from 10 years to life in prison, and their crimes ranged from murder to trafficking crack cocaine. The youngest was 24 years old; the oldest was 44. According to Stirling, the injured inmates required medical attention outside the prison, which made restoring order more difficult for authorities.

    The coroner described a chaotic scene upon his arrival, with inmates still fighting. The maximum-security facility in Bishopville houses about 1,500 inmates and 44 guards were there when the first fight started.

    The riot was the latest violence in the South Carolina prisons system, where at least 13 other inmates have been killed by fellow prisoners since the start of 2017. It was the most inmates slain in a single riot in the U.S. since nine prisoners and a guard died in 1993 at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility, said Steve Martin, a consultant who helps the federal government monitor prison systems.

    Cellphones helped stir up the trouble, according to Stirling, who urged the federal government to change a law and allow state institutions like his to block prisoners' cell signals.

    Gov. Henry McMaster told reporters that jamming signals from contraband cellphones — already banned in prison but smuggled in by the thousands via visitors, errant guards, even delivered by drone — would "go a long way" in preventing future violence in prison.

    When pressed on proposing a solution other than jamming, McMaster offered no specifics.

    "We do the best we can," he said.

    State Sen. Gerald Malloy, a Democrat whose district includes Lee Correctional, summed up the day more bluntly.

    "It's an incredibly bad day in South Carolina," he told AP. "We failed. That's it."

    From my nephew who is SWAT in the Virginia Corrections system

    He says they all know that when corrections officers go to work and come home safe it's only because the prisoners let them live

    The inmates DO control the jails
    glad the guards were safe and stayed inside their "bubbles"

    White House makes first legislative move on prison reform


    The Trump administration will get behind a criminal justice proposal for the first time when Jared Kushner meets with lawmakers to push for a bill to rehabilitate prisoners through educational programs, vocational training and therapy to reduce recidivism rates.

    Be smart: Criminal justice reform has no deadline, most prisoners can't vote and efforts over the past couple of years have always been kicked down the road, despite general bipartisan support. Many criminal justice reform advocates on the Hill and in outside groups credit Kushner for his advocacy on the issue in the White House.

    The bill, Collins-Jeffries, is expected to get a vote in the House Judiciary Committee next week, according to White House officials. Kushner and other advocates for the bill hope it will get a vote on the House floor soon.

    Participants in tomorrow's meetings will include House Speaker Paul Ryan and Republican House leaders, the Problem Solvers Caucus, Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA), and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), among others.
    Big picture:

    Attorney General Sessions and President Trump have been open to reform efforts that aim to help prisoners successfully re-enter society, but have drawn the line at sentencing reform efforts, which lower harsh sentencing guidelines, especially for nonviolent drug crimes.

    Kushner also supports sentencing reform, but has agreed to start with prison reform given Sessions and Trump's stance.

    While there is strong bipartisan support for prison reform, Sen. Chuck Grassley as well as some other lawmakers and outside groups on the left have demanded that sentencing reform be included in any criminal justice reform bill and have questioned the White House's sincerity on the issue.
    The divide over sentencing reform is starkest in the Senate, where Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley has insisted on not settling for anything short of his comprehensive criminal justice reform bill. But for now, the White House is focused on getting a bill through the House.

    Go deeper: The criminal justice reform coalition is breaking up

    The biggest problem with the prison system in the FUSA is,
    the massive overcrowded prisons.
    This results in incorrigible convicts being released,
    back out onto the streets.

    The only true prison reform is, to simply build more prisons.

    FUSA should be able to lockup at least a quarter,
    of the population, and to be able to maintain a
    one strike you are out, criminal justice system.

    You, a hard working, law abiding tax payer, are going to pay for them,
    one way or another, they would therefore be best locked up in a cage.

    More prisons today, more prisons tomorrow, more prisons forever.

    Lock'em up.

    Please be safe everyone, and please arm up.
