Cummins Unit, Lincoln County, Arkansas
September 14, 2017

Arkansas prisoners staged another short uprising, after incidents in July and August at Tucker Unit. The prisoners refused orders and destroyed property. Three prisoners were injured, and one called local media to report that conditions are “like a concentration camp” and that “you are going to continue to have riots… all units across the penitentiary because [conditions] are wrong.”
