Lee Correctional Institution has had inmate issues in the past. The prison in Bishopville, S.C., about 60 miles northeast of Columbia, houses about 1,600 male inmates.

The agency pledged in its accountability report to add more security cameras to prisons.

"There's nothing here for us to do", the inmate said. They're trying to say it's about contraband, it's not about contraband, it's about territory - it's about rival gang members going at each other.

"We did everything we could to get there.as quickly as possible,"Stirling said".
