The Fishkill Correctional Facility has a new superintendent as of today. This follows a story from the New York Times last week that documents the homicide of a man held at the prison. Witnesses in the story say corrections officers at the facility violentally confronted the man, which later led to his death. It's because of this story and others that the Correction Association of New York is calling for a complete overhaul and investigation into the state's prison system.
