Description

Unit 32, the super-maximum security facility at Mississippi State Penitentiary, has been the subject of scrutiny due to claims of harsh conditions for inmates. This review of the current conditions showed that Unit 32 had become "a dumping ground for the violent, the mentally ill, prison gang leaders, and newly arrived prisoners." "The stories continued through a summer of shocking violence as gang tensions within the unit overflowed."
