Seven inmates were killed during fights that lasted more than seven hours at a South Carolina prison Sunday night and into Monday morning, according to officials.
At least six emergency agencies responded to a “mass casualty incident” at Lee Correctional Institution in Lee County that resulted in the seven inmate deaths and 17 other inmates requiring medical attention, the S.C. Department of Corrections announced early Monday morning.
But we have to thank the heavens that these were not “gun deaths” otherwise they would have been horrible. (/end sarcasm)
Senseless Violence is the key. It is not the gun or the knife or the pipe. You cannot ask for a more controlled environment that a prison and yet death happens, assaults happen, rapes happen.
But if they can find a way to put the blame of this incident on Gun Owners, they would go ahead and do it.
