Bird droppings plague death row inmates

Associated Press • May 20, 2014 at 9:40 PM

Prisoners responding to a survey by a state prison inspection committee are asking for screens on windows to keep the birds out.

The report released Monday by the Correctional Institution Inspection Committee also found many inmates like the fact that windows open and let in fresh air.

The committee received 94 responses from the approximately 138 inmates on death row at Chillicothe Correctional Institution south of Columbus.

Inmates also complained about having to be handcuffed when taken to the showers and the lack of hot water in cells.
