Jeffery Wilemon clutched his gut, throbbing in pain as he lay on his bed inside the South Mississippi correctional institution in April. But there was no way for him to cry out – not unless he wanted another beating.

Hours earlier, inmates had slugged the 54-year-old and declared he needed to “follow the rules” their gang had set for prison life, he later wrote in a handwritten pleading filed in Itawamba county circuit court.

After the beating, they escorted him to a gang leader who warned him he couldn’t run or hide because the gang had members everywhere, Wilemon wrote.

That place is a mess. 23 to 1 ratio is pretty tough. I can relate to the Low Pay for a CO. TDC's pay was very low when I worked there.It was way below the National Average (more than 10 years ago), and OT was 2 bad words in all Units!!
Care,Custody,and Control of all incarcerated inmates was our job. Most new CO's will leave within 6 months for various reasons. Those that do stay usually average 7 years on the job and leave. Again LOW pay.I did my job well,I went by the book,and retired from TDCJ-ID 10 years ago.It takes a Special person to stick it out.
Yes, there are Inmate sexual assaults,rapes,fights,and hits do happen. I can say..Inmates do NOT run our Prisons.Lockdowns for any lengthy time are for a purpose.Strict counts,Special counts,Unit Shakedowns,Inmate and Cell shakedowns are common.Inmate visitation is a privilege.Inmates that are threat to themselves,other inmates,or staff are housed in Administration Segregation (AD SEG).One person cell.
I'd say that Mississippi Unit needs to get rid of some inmates..Transferred to another Units in the State.The Staff needs to take control, not the inmates.Turn that place upside down and start all over. My rant is over.
