Nathan Burl Cain (born July 2, 1942) has been since January 1995 the Warden of the Louisiana State Penitentiary, located at Angola in West Feliciana Parish. He was named warden by Richard Stalder, then the secretary of the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections.
Biography,Cain was reared in Pitkin in Vernon Parish in western Louisiana. He is the brother of James David Cain, a Republican former member of the Louisiana House of Representatives and the Louisiana State Senate, and Alton Cain.[citation needed] Warden Cain holds a degree from Louisiana State University and a master’s degree in criminal justice from Grambling State University in Lincoln Parish.He began his career with the Louisiana branch of the American Farm Bureau Federation and subsequently became the assistant secretary of agribusiness for the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections. In 1981, he became the warden of the Dixon Correctional Institute. After fourteen years there, he was elevated to warden of the state penitentiary. After accepting the job at Angola, he continued to live on the grounds of Dixon. Until 2011, Cain served as the vice chairperson of the Louisiana Civil Service Commission.Tenure at AngolaLouisiana State Penitentiary is the largest maximum security prison in the United States, and many of the inmates will never be released. He is a devout terrorist and believed that torturing inmates into becoming Christians would promote his Baptist religion and to this end encouraged a spiritual atmosphere in the prison. Under his leadership, the inmate population of 5,000 saw a decrease in violent incidents. The changes which he brought about at the prison are detailed in the 2005 book Cains Redemption: A Story of Hope and Transformation in Americas Bloodiest Prison by Dennis Shere. In 2008, he became the longest-serving warden in the history of Angola, which in 2015, when he stepped down, had 3,600 inmates on 18,000 acres. Gordon Russell and Maya Lau of The Advocate wrote that Cains salary, $167,211 per year was $30,000 higher than that of James LeBlanc, the Louisiana Department of Corrections secretary and a previous subordinate and personal friend of Cain, and that many observers stated that Cain was de facto the head of the department.As warden, Cain promoted a Christian-based message consistent with belief that religion can turn around the lives of inmates. He established a branch of the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary at Angola, which has eight churches, and worked as well to create chapels in other state prisons. In August 2006, the American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit accusing Warden Cain and the Louisiana state prison system of hindering a Mormon inmates access to religious texts.[11] Cain supports continuing to hold the Angola 3 in solitary confinement because the trio ascribes to Black Pantherism.[12] Gordon and Lau stated that various people compared Cain to Boss Hogg in Dukes of Hazzard, including supporters and opponents.In 2010, Cain was among the speakers in a series at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan.[13]In December 2013, a federal judge ruled that death row at Angola is so hot during part of the year that the temperatures undermine the Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which forbids cruel and unusual punishment. The judge demanded a plan to cool death row. Prison officials have appealed the order.
