Prison Probe

     A major Federal Department of Justice investigation into the Alabama prison system has begun. 
     The DOJ probe was announced by letter to Governor Bentley. The Southern Poverty Law Center has sued the state over prison conditions, and they are calling on Governor Bentley to release the letter. 
     The investigation comes after years of substandard conditions in the state prisons, and recent incidents of violence, including the stabbing death of a guard. 
     The remedies to these century old
problems are going to be very
expensive. After years of neglecting
physical and security issues at the
men's prisons, the bill is about due.
