South Carolina residents are leaving the state in droves in preparation for Hurricane Florence's arrival. Governor Henry McMaster announced a mandatory evacuation for counties in the direct path of the hurricane saying, "We're not going to gamble with the lives of the people of South Carolina. Not a one." Not among those being evacuated, however, are several hundred inmates. Officials say they will be monitoring the situation to see whether prison evacuations need to occur. While over 3,000 inmates have been evacuated in North Carolina, many worry the inmates in South Carolina will become trapped in unsafe conditions. What do you think?
Is it inhumane to leave prison inmates in the path of a deadly hurricane?
