Editorial: South Carolina’s prison system is in crisis. Lawmakers must act

"S.C. prisons have made strides in recent years with reforms aimed at rehabilitating criminals, which should be the goal, but some still shockingly lack the basics — like cell doors that actually lock.

And if guards can’t control the movements of inmates, they can’t control the proliferation of gangs or the black market in drugs and cellphones. And they can’t prevent spasms of violence like the riot at Lee Correctional Institution that left seven prisoners dead in 2018."
