Three inmate homicides at Elmore County Correctional Facility in the past 18 months should signal a crisis within Alabama’s overcrowded prison system, a reform advocate said.
From 2010 to 2014, one inmate homicide occurred at Elmore, despite a relatively stagnant occupancy rate at about 196 percent. The recent Elmore deaths account for one-third of all Alabama Department of Corrections inmate homicides in the past 18 months.
“That should be setting off alarm bells that the (ADOC) is a system in crisis at all levels, and needs to be treated as such,” said Charlotte Morrison, an attorney with the Equal Justice Initiative.

Yet, the Commissioner and his lieutenants are chasing dollars in Montgomery for new “houses of horror”, inatead of taking action to save lives within ADOC.
Free Alabama Movement leaders continue to be targeted and retaliated against for speaking out and exposing the crisis. . . while the death toll continues to climb.
