Guam - Enough is enough for Senator Brant McCreadie who continues to advocate for solutions at DepCor.

With news of last week's stabbing at the Mangilao Detention Facility, McCreadie says he's pushing Bill 313 harder than ever. We should note, Bill 313 is an improved version of the old prison bill introduced last year. "The new DOC bill is still in the making. We're still trying to work with the congresswoman and all the stakeholders involved. As you know, there's another incident at the Department of Corrections so we're trying to get to the bottom of that. And find a solution to a possible drug problem and inmates not being we're they're supposed to be."

As we brought you last week, an inmate in the Maximum Security Unit stabbed another with what appeared to be a nail like instrument. Drug testing of the two inmates revealed both were under the influence of marijuana. This follows the confirmed case of tuberculosis resulting in a mass TB screening throughout DepCor.

McCreadie adds he's working with the administration to look for ways to assist DOC in both investigations.
