Default IT’S TIME FOR YOU TO DIE’ How flaws in the SC prison system led to 7 deaths

IT’S TIME FOR YOU TO DIE’
How flaws in the SC prison system led to 7 deaths in a single night


"On April 15, 2018, fighting broke out at a rural South Carolina prison, becoming the deadliest explosion of U.S. prison violence in 25 years.

Officials have said little publicly about what happened.

This is the story of that night.



A group of men plays cards at a steel table bolted to the concrete floor. They keep one eye on the deck, one eye over their shoulders.

Springtime air thickens over Lee Correctional Institution and the cotton fields that sprawl in the distance. Damp from the coming downpour clings to narrow windows that peer into a dorm at the maximum-security prison where violence has flared more often lately."

How we reported this project

"In the 19 months since the deadly fighting at South Carolina’s Lee Correctional Institution, the public has been told little about what transpired that night or the events that preceded the bloodshed. The Post and Courier set out to change that.

Over the past eight months, a team of three reporters collected thousands of pages of documents through open records requests, public archives and other sources. They also interviewed more than 150 state officials, experts, attorneys, current and former corrections officers and inmates — including direct witnesses to the violence."
