Lawmakers Refused to Increase an Infamous Prison’s Funding; Mayhem Ensued; Inmates Murdered; Convicts Escaped

Just a cursory check on the Net will show that it is even worse than said. This is a GLOBAL ISSUE that will not be going away anytime soon – “for-profit prisons” is another problem both here at home and abroad. IMO the worse in US is Louisiana State Prison – known as Angola – that has a 100+ year of murder, corruption, underfunding, neglect and pure anarchist chaos when it comes to prisons US in general. https://www.google.com/search?q=famous+louisiana+prison+angola&rlz=1CASUUV_enUY846&oq=famous+louisiana+prison+angola&aqs=chrome..69i57.13997j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

The whole Prison concept is DOA – pun intended – and needs to be eliminated as it CANNOT be reformed or fixed!! Following are some of the other notorious prisons around the world that have – as they ALL DO – the same problems. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_prison

Lawmakers Refused to Increase an Infamous Prison’s Funding; Mayhem Ensued; Inmates Murdered; Convicts Escaped

The Mississippi Center for Investigative Reporting and ProPublica have done a wonderful job of shining light on the situation during the last year, but have been largely ignored up until now. Within a week at least five people were killed in Mississippi Prisons and two escaped.

Lawmakers Refused to Increase an Infamous Prison’s Funding. Then, Chaos Erupted.
Understaffed and underfunded, Mississippi’s Parchman prison recently received media attention for its grisly violence, gang control and subhuman living conditions. However, lawmakers have known about these issues for years and have done nothing to fix them.

  1. Thanks. I wanted to do more. They have an important article on California prisons, that I didn’t have time to post. I suspect that people are breaking out of county jails and running away to other states, with hopes of not being sent to some infamous prisons. What is so frightening is that you can do something not so bad, or accidentally and end up in one of these hell-holes and then killed by gangs. Apparently Mississippi prisons were under Federal supervision from the 1970s until 2011 and improved only to go downhill again. Yes, the private ones are also run by gangs. In a private one in the Miss Delta (Natchez) they hold illegal immigrants who were given deportation papers and they killed a guard within 3 years of it opening. Why are they putting it in Mississippi, I wonder? Why not put it on the border and make a door back out. In the front and out the back?

    • I never had a personal experience with a State Prison but – as you know – I DID come close as the Judge in California gave me the harshest sentence he could give for the ‘infraction’ of which I was accused short of State time.. 1 year in County Jail for Driving on a Suspended License.. SAY WHAT? – yeah, Driving on a Suspended License. So these prison issues are a ‘little too close to me’ for my comfort zone and I will post about them whenever the opportunity arises!! Sentencing in MOST IF NOT ALL STATES in the entire US are “Out of hand” when you get maximum County Incarceration for “victimless infractions” – NOT EVEN CRIMES!! 👀😳😯😮😖😩😫😵😠😡
