A South Carolina prison is under fire after officers have dragged a man out and let him die when he was stabbed by two inmates.
Shocking surveillance images show Allen & # 39; AJ & # 39; Capers, 32, wriggled while bleeding to death in the garden of the Corbeville Correctional Institution. The recordings, filmed on New Year's Eve 2017, showed that it took 30 minutes for the staff to show up and help the fatally injured man.
An incident report states that an officer walking through a wing where Capers was stabbed saw: & # 39; bloody handprints on the shower doors and blood on the walls entering the unit & # 39 ;.
According to an officer report, the guards gave the message & # 39; main check & # 39; to say & # 39; medical assistance was needed as soon as possible & # 39; but the images show that he had stayed in the cold the day the temperature was only at a peak of 39 degrees Fahrenheit.

& # 39; After a detention report at Turbeville, one prisoner was killed and eight detainees were sent outside for medical assistance, & # 39; the South Carolina Department of Corrections tweeted at 7:37 PM that day.
It was after they posted updates about how they, along with the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED), responded to an incident isolated in one residential unit and that there was no threat to the public.
They assured followers – some took care of the detainees' family – that all employees were safe and accountable and that the facility was secure.

The deceased mother of the prisoner, Debra Dickson, has filed a lawsuit against the state's prison system.
& # 39; I want justice for All. I want change by the person who has the ability to actually change it, & # 39; the parent told NBC News. & # 39; I don't want a mother to go through what I am going through. Don't wait for another prisoner to happen. Don't wait for another mother to sit in this chair. & # 39;
But she will not look at the released images of his death.

It shows injured Capers – who would be released in 2026 – get up and run at some point, but falls to the ground after just a few steps.
Later prisoners do not seem to know what to do after picking up a wheelchair.
After a short conversation with a correctional officer, they walk away with the wheelchair.
Later employees bring a stretcher, but the man seems lifeless at that moment.
& # 39; I do not encourage a mother who gave birth to her child to see her child torture, & # 39; the mother continued. & # 39; I want to remember my child as I knew him. & # 39;
Dickson would tell Capers during visits: & # 39; I want to put you in my pocket and take you home. & # 39;

Bamberg Legal shared the moving long-length footage of the prison.
Justin Bamberg of the House of Representatives of South Carolina and the lawyer for the family of the deceased now want a prison reform.
& # 39; There is no excuse for breaking the law & # 39 ;, said Bamberg. & # 39; But just because you go to jail does not mean that you have been sentenced to death. & # 39;
