Federal inmate killed in Florence, third such U.S. prison death in a month – Denver, Colorado

Washington — A federal prisoner in a high-security prison in Colorado died in a quarrel with another prisoner on Monday, the third time a prisoner was killed in a US federal prison last month.

According to the prison bureau, Jamal Thompson, 33, died in USP Florence on Monday afternoon shortly after prison officials responded to the fighting.

Thompson’s death was the latest security issue in the federal prison system, which has been plagued by chronic violence, serious misconduct, and persistent staff shortages. His death has also led the Department of Justice to take action to reform the Department of Justice, facing increasing pressure from Democrats in Parliament.

A 61-year-old man died last month after a quarrel at USP Tucson, Arizona. And last week, a 32-year-old man was killed after fighting another prisoner in USP Canaan, Waymart, Pennsylvania.

The prison bureau said that at around 2:30 pm, officials were called in to respond to the quarrel between Thompson and other prisoners and “started lifesaving measures promptly,” but Thompson said he was in the emergency services. Was sentenced to death. Other prisoners involved in the fighting were treated for minor injuries, officials said.
