Another violent stabbing has occurred at Elmore correctional facility in Elmore Alabama , following the media visit in a neighboring prison at Draper correction facility yesterday . It was reported today that an inmate at Elmore correctional facility was stabbed suffering serous injuries, while stand right outside the shift commanding officers of this facility.
Elmore to this date has an extensive violent background at this institution, and things seem to be the same as it has been in the past few years, where numerous Inmates have been murdered .
Today in Montgomery,Alabama legislator meet in order to come up with a decision on Governor Bentley’s prison construction bill. This bill allegedly offers the tax payers of Alabama a solution to the extensive issues that haunt Alabama’s prisons. Governor Robert Bentley,Senator Cam Ward,Commissioner Jeffrey Dunn and other supporters of this bill, would like for the tax payer to believe that the building of new prisons would give solution to the problems such as overcrowding , higher rates of violence, sexual abuse, and prevention of recidivism in Alabama prisons.
I’m sure today’s incident at Elmore correctional facility will be explained by the Alabama Department of Corrections spokesperson as A need for more correctional officers . Although we agree and concede to the fact that the Alabama Department corrections is understaffed it was learned that today not even the shift commanders manned their post at the facility. It was reported that the shift commanders were all inside of the chapel area instead of the office where the attack took place . To us it seems like there is an issue in leadership within the Alabama Department of Corrections.
If these reports have any truth to them ,which we believe they do, this shows a pattern of the inability in leadership and administration within the Alabama Department of corrections . The question I have is how many men and women throughout the Alabama Department of Corrections have been brutally attacked and lives lost due to the lack of ability to lead the employees of our prison system .
I Think it’s time we look way deeper into the situation as taxpayers . At this time no other information on the inmate that was assaulted at Elmore Correctional Facility or the inmate who may have committed this assault is available .
