Default SC lawmakers agree prisons need more money to improve safety, but how much

SC lawmakers agree prisons need more money to improve safety, but how much will they give?

" Corrections Director Bryan Stirling pleaded with the Legislature to give him more money to fix South Carolina’s prisons after the state experienced one of the deadliest inmate riots in U.S. history last year.

Decades of underfunding had created a powder keg of dangerous conditions at the prisons, and critics warned more violence was possible. Lawmakers responded earlier this year by giving Stirling an extra $10 million — a sliver of the $160 million for upgrades he said were desperately needed as a first phase to address problems throughout the prison system."

"Waiting is negative; hoping is positive. so try to wait with hope. This will help you remember that you're on your way to something worth waiting for."
