Inmates Killed, 17 More Injured, in South Carolina Prison Violence

Jeff Taillon, communications director for the South Carolina Department of Corrections, said the department and the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) are responding to an "ongoing" situation at the maximum-security all-male prison in Bishopville.

According to South Carolina Department of Corrections, multiple crews responded to an incident on Sunday night that reportedly involved multiple inmate on inmate altercations. "We always want more". Four inmates were killed by a pair of prisoners in the state's Kirkland Correctional Institution previous year.

Lee County Fire/Rescue said ambulances from multiple jurisdictions lined up outside to tend to the wounded.

The pilot program was found to be successful, so it was expanded to offer scheduled overtime to more officers, the Department of Corrections said.

Lee Correctional Institution has had inmate issues in the past.

The agency has also made efforts to reduce the amount of time an officer can expect to wait before receiving a pay raise, and has streamlined the job application associated with the work.

"While security cameras can not replace uniformed positions, the presence of such technology will enhance the safety and security of our institutions by allowing observation of areas inadequately staffed due to the lack of uniformed positions".

"There's nothing here for us to do", the inmate said.

"It's not a SC problem, it is a national problem", Stirling said. They're trying to say it's about contraband, it's not about contraband, it's about territory - it's about rival gang members going at each other.
