A new report of the uprising at a Reeves County, TX. plantation, demonstrates how there was open and obvious human rights abuses going on, and even a death of an inmate/slave, who was put in solitary confinement due to encouraging other inmates to protest their inhumane treatment. He died in solitary from an epileptic seizure. The private prison’s policy has not changed in the aftermath.
