The History of Hays State Prison
It was known to the administrators, that the locks on all of the cells were not secure enough, but they did nothing to change that. Then, just as expected they didn't take action but the inmates immediately did, and that is when 3 men were all murdered in 1 week.
How it happened...
Inmate Case Points
-It is know to the officers that the locks to cells have not worked in many years, but they have not done anything to change that.
-Damion was being threatened by many inmates, and his mother requested him to be moved to a place with better security, but they never moved his location.
-Even after many beatings and stabbings, they still would not change the locks; it took 3 deaths in 1 week for them to finally increase security at the prison.
