7 inmates killed in 'mass casualty incident' at SC prison BY TEDDY KULMALA, DWAYNE MCLEMORE AND EMILY BOHATCH April 16, 2018 06:18 AM BISHOPVILLE, SC 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 the "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. Though most of the autopsies have yet to be performed, it appears that many of the prisoners died from stabbing or slashing wounds from "shanks," Lee County Coroner Larry Logan said. The official cause of death will not be determined until after the autopsies. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crim...ass-casualty-incident-at-sc-prison/ar-AAvWpkn ___________________________________________________ Now back before we as a nation decided to see if we could make the book 1984 a reality, we used to call this a RIOT. They are using the language the prison officials told them to use, because the word RIOT, looks bad. How do you trust a media that uses the language the government official tells them to use? Discuss......... Edit: to be clear. This could be a mass casualty riot. Disregard the mass casualty part. Why would you call what is clearly a riot, a 'incident'?
