New York Prisons Will Place Inmates on Lockdown During Solar Eclipse

New York State Corrections Department has issued a lockdown for all inmates on April 8th due to the upcoming total solar eclipse.

The move by New York state corrections authorities has resulted in inmates suing the state.

On Friday, a group of inmates filed a lawsuit in Federal Court that states a lockdown on April 8th during the total solar eclipse “violates inmates’ constitutional rights to practice their faiths.”

The plaintiffs in the suit are six men with various backgrounds, including Baptist, Seventh-Day Adventist and Muslim.

Previously, The Gateway Pundit reported New York state police officials had warned residents to be prepared for slow 911 response times, cellular disruptions, gridlocked traffic, and food demand during the upcoming total solar eclipse.
