Nearly 800 Nebraska inmates sign petition panning conditions

Dec 4, 2019

Nearly 800 Nebraska State Penitentiary inmates _ more than half the Lincoln prison’s population _ have signed a petition sent to state officials and various news outlets decrying conditions at the prison. The Lincoln Journal Star reports that the petition pans penitentiary administrators for putting the prison in modified lockdown, which has curtailed clubs or organization meetings and kept inmates from having full use of the prison law library.
