Union says guards at Kansas’ Lansing prison in danger after recent attacks by inmates

The Kansas Organization of State Employees has received reports that 10 guards were injured in five attacks over five days earlier this month. The union blames lack of staffing for the increased violence. State officials have acknowledged attacks on three consecutive days but say the injuries were minor and deny that other inmates were celebrating and encouraging the violence.
