Fix state's prisons, don't appeal lawsuit

Last month, Judge J. Michael Baxley found in favor of the plaintiffs in a lawsuit brought eight years ago by a group representing some 3,500 mentally ill prisoners. The plaintiffs sought to force the S.C. Department of Corrections to develop and fund a "reasonable and adequate system for the mental health care of inmates suffering from mental illness."
