A prison in South Carolina, US, is now under fire after staff dragged a man outside and left him to die after he was stabbed by two fellow inmates.

Shocking footage shows Allen "AJ" Capers, 32, bleeding to death in the yard of the Turbeville Correctional Institution.

The surveillance footage, which has now surfaced, was filmed on New Year's Eve 2017.

The video shows it took officers 30 minutes to show up and help the inmate.

An incident report states that a staff member walking through a wing where Capers was stabbed saw "bloody hand prints on the shower doors, and blood on the walls entering the unit".

Glad someone is exposing this.

4. This is yet another tragic death

which reflects the low esteem our country, through its governmental entities, has for the lives of its citizens...

The callous disregard shown by the guards is appalling.

The rest of the world is watching our country fail ...

6. Negligent homicide is...

..a much lower intent crime and is used as a charge when one person causes the death of another through criminal negligence. The charge does not involve premeditation, but focuses on what the defendant should have known and the risks associated with what he did know.
10 years in prison is the usual penalty. Under Color of Law, may add to that.

9. Lock up eery single one of those guards for murder.

Or whatever the appropriate legal term is, just put them in jail and let them enjoy the fruits of their hate.
