Mississippi prison debacle with deaths and riots triggers rally for reform. Reform groups call for the new governor to investigate Parchman prison.
Dozens of family and friends of prisoners at a Mississippi state prison as well as several leaders of reform groups rallied on Friday to call on the newly elected governor to shut down the "terrible" facility. The demonstration, led by groups including Color Of Change, Until Freedom, Team Roc, REFORM and Mississippi Prison Reform Coalition, called on elected officials including Governor Tate Reeves to investigate what's going on inside the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman.

The maximum-security prison reported eight inmate deaths within a month as well as riots, mold infestations and 24-hour lockdowns without showers, clean clothes or adequate water, according to Color of Change's Facebook's event page.

One of the speakers at the rally on Friday afternoon in front of Mississippi's State Capitol building called the prisoners the "whistleblowers" of the "broken criminal justice system."
