SC Lede: South Carolina Prisons – Watching The Watchers
On this edition of South Carolina Lede, host Gavin Jackson speaks with Greenville News reporters Nikie Mayo and Kirk Brown about their recent coverage on South Carolina prisons. Mayo and Brown have been focusing on the disciplinary action taken against hundreds of corrections officers and other factors surrounding the 2018 riot at Lee Correctional Institution. The investigation into the incident, which left seven inmates dead, is ongoing and no one has been charged.
Then, South Carolina Public Radio's own Russ McKinney quizzes Gavin about South Carolina history in this week's Did You Know segment.
