The Omaha World Herald reports problems at the State Penitentiary in Lincoln are as bad, if not worse, than problems at the Tecumseh State Prison, where 2 deadly riots have erupted the past 3 years.  A new state report says overcrowded cells and a shortage of staff at the State Pen.  The report included an unscientific survey of staff indicating more than half felt unsafe coming to work, and nearly 80% would not recommend the job to a friend or family member.
