Another inmate stabbed at BCF

Another inmate has been stabbed at the Bordelais Correctional Facility (BCF), the second such incident in a week.

BCF officials told St Lucia Times that in the latest incident Saturday at around 9.20 am, inmate Valence James sustained about 13 stab wounds.

James was allegedly attacked by his cellmate, Michael Pologne, on the upper tier of the Bravo Unit after both were allowed out of their cell for recreation.

The injured inmate was escorted to the BCF Medical Unit for initial medical attention and later to the Dennery Hospital for further medical care, St Lucia Times was informed.

There has been no official word on his condition.

The incident is currently being investigated by the Major Crimes Unit of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force.

Last Saturday a BCF inmate, identified as Emmerson Dornelly, was stabbed in the chest and lower abdomen and had to be rushed to St Jude Hospital.

At the time, BCF officials said that Dornelly and another inmate, identified as Junior Duncan, were involved in an altercation  at around 9.20 am when the stabbing took place in the maximum security section of the prison.

Duncan was one of the two inmates involved in an attack on another prisoner at the BCF in June this year.

Prison officials said Duncan was shot when he and the other attacker turned on a response team.

The officials said he later attempted to commit suicide by swallowing a number of pills that were given to him as part of the treatment for his gunshot wound.

      CORRECTION… Nurses don’t give medication Doctors do so they should have known when they prescribe it how it should be dispensed. And furthermore i blame the prison cause why would you let an inmate go to his cell with medication???
