Description

For more than two years, Brown has investigated corruption, brutality and the systemic, barbaric abuse of inmates in Florida's prison system, the nation's third largest. In 2015, Florida prison deaths were at an all-time high, and use of force against inmates had more than doubled in five years. Brown began to examine why and discovered a disturbing pattern of deliberate indifference and even blatant cover-ups among corrections officers, commanders and the agency's top leaders who often looked the other way as inmates were beaten, starved and killed.
