Those numbers combined with the recent violence have brought the prison to a “boiling point.” ___ The suit alleges that Parchman doesn’t have enough mattresses for the inmates and that the inmates’ cells are covered in black mold. Pictures that capture the alleged chaos at Parchman have gone viral on social media. Those pictures also show raw sewage spilling out onto-click the link in our bio to read more. 📸: @gettyimages
