A disturbing fatality rate has been confirmed at a federal prison in the southern region of the state, where three prisoners were killed in less than four months.
The federal government needs to be more transparent in providing local communities with information about the violent incidents that occur in Colorado prisons. That's the message from public officials reacting to recent news that a prison in the state has been on lockdown status since August, just months after a violent yard riot in April left two inmates dead.
Three months after a deadly Florence penitentiary yard riot that left two inmates dead, prison warden Sara Revell was given an annual Excellence in Prison Management award by the the federal Bureau of Prisons. The discovery comes after it was reported by The Colorado Independent on Thursday that the same high-security penitentiary has been on lockdown since early August due to a violent inmate-on-inmate assault.
