Rappers Yo Gotti and Jay-Z have filed a second lawsuit against Mississippi prison officials on behalf of 152 inmates over the "abhorrent and barbaric" conditions prisoners suffer at Parchman Farm.

The lawsuit, filed on Wednesday, Feb. 26, against eight defendants including the Mississippi Department of Corrections. The lawsuit follows a similar one filed last month on behalf of 29 more inmates.

The latest suit details the "abhorrent conditions, abuse and constant violence, inadequate health care and mental health care, and overuse of isolation" prisoners at the facility, also known as Mississippi State Penitentiary, have had to endure over lack of funding and not enough staff.

"The conditions of confinement at Parchman are so barbaric, the deprivation of health and mental health care so extreme, and the defects in security so severe, that the people confined at Parchman live a miserable and hopeless existence confronted daily by imminent risk of substantial harm in violation of their rights under the U.S. Constitution," the complaint states.

Additionally, the complaint states that the prisoners, who live in "medieval" conditions at the jail, are rarely able to obtain any medical help they require - leading to inmates "inserting their own catheters, treating their own stab wounds, vomiting up blood, teetering on the verge of diabetic comas, and suffering through seizures without medical care.

Even a broken neck can go without treatment at Parchman, with the inmate being left to suffer through his injury while sleeping on exposed, steel bedsprings with no mattress."

Following the first lawsuit filed in January, an investigation into the conditions at Parchman and three other Mississippi prisons was opened by the Department of Justice. That investigation is ongoing.

After taking a victory lap last week, James Comey shocked everyone by apologizing for the FBI's "gross misconduct" in obtaining FISA warrants to spy on President Donald Trump's campaign.

Comey headed the FBI from 2013 until he was fired by incoming President Donald Trump in 2017.

After inspector general Michael Horowitz released his long-awaited report last week, Comey called the report "ridiculous" and claimed it vindicated him of any bias toward Trump.

But the inspector general's report found 17 "significant errors and omissions" by the FBI who presented this falsified info to a judge in order to obtain FISA warrants to spy on Trump's 2016 campaign.

Comey was still claiming victory for himself until he sat down for an interview with Fox News Sunday on Dec. 15. He suddenly remembered being responsible for "real sloppiness" over the handling of the FISA warrant to spy on a Trump campaign adviser.

He said his earlier defense of the FBI was "wrong", and that inspector general Horowitz "was right."

Comey's confession sent the liberal news media reeling on Sunday.

According to the Guardian.com, Comey may have changed his tune after President Trump threatened "years in jail."

"I was overconfident in the procedures that the FBI had built over 20 years," Comey said on Sunday. "I thought they were robust enough. It's incredibly hard to get a Fisa and [Horowitz] was right: there was real sloppiness. It was not acceptable."

According to the Guardian, Comey's sudden change of heart gives Trump and the Republicans the fuel they need to continue to attack the FBI as the heart of the "deep state".
