Petition: Penitentiary needs to be investigated

In an attempt to address the alleged inmate abuse at USP Lewisburg, 37 civil and human rights organizations wrote a letter to the U.S. Attorney General petitioning her to request the Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General to investigate the practices of the Bureau of Prisons at Lewisburg. They addressed the practice of housing inmates in double cells for prolonged periods, using hard restraints, and the lack of mental house treatment. The Lewisburg Prison Project has been trying to get the prison investigated for years and hopefully this letter will have an impact.
