Another report of a senseless stabbing at Holman Correctional Facility earlier today. Details are unknown at the time, and Holman prison administration refuse to give a confirmation, or refute this report. However at this time it is believed to be an inmate on inmate altercation.
The rise in violence within Alabama’s prison system has all to do with the near 200% over crowding problem that has haunted Alabama for well over two decades.
The founder of UNHEARD VOICES stated when asked, why is there a sudden incline in violence behind the walls of Alabama’s prisons,”It’s to be expected when you have double the capacity of men in one spot, more than that spot was designed for. And to make matters worse you have a system that has only one thing that is consistent, and that’s inconsistency. It pushes these men over the edge. There’s no structure among the admin.so there damn sure no structure for the men housed in Alabama.
“It’s a sad situation to be honest. You have men that the courts declared unfit for society, and they declare guardianship over these men and remove them. But yet they provide no guidance, establish no structure in these guys life while they’re here. They in essence create rabid animals, and complain when they act out. It’s sad!”
Last month the Department of Justice declared an investigation on the entire ADOC. But these processes take time and we can only ask how many more men will die while we wait?
