DOJ inves­ti­gat­ing two South Car­oli­na jails after sev­er­al inmate deaths

Posted in Trump

The Depart­ment of Jus­tice announced it is inves­ti­gat­ing two jails in South Car­oli­na after sev­er­al inmates have died at the facil­i­ties in the past year.
The inquiry will look at the Sher­iff Al Can­non Deten­tion Cen­ter in Charleston, South Car­oli­na, and the Alvin S. Glenn Deten­tion Cen­ter in Colum­bia, South Car­oli­na. Kris­ten Clarke, assis­tant attor­ney gen­er­al for the DOJ’s Civ­il Rights Divi­sion, announced the two sep­a­rate inves­ti­ga­tions on Thurs­day, say­ing that those sent to jail “do not aban­don their civ­il and con­sti­tu­tion­al rights at the jail­house door.” In remarks made about the inves­ti­ga­tions, Clarke said 14 peo­ple had died at the two jails since 2022.
